About

 The Mascot Theory Live at Clutch Sound Studios 

The Mascot Theory is proud to introduce Live at Clutch Sound Studios

On a cold, ice-covered February day in early 2019, folk rock band The Mascot Theory (and friends) recorded a set of songs spanning their eight-year career to date, in front of an intimate crowd of enthusiastic super fans. The band teamed up with studio engineer/owner Brian Liston at Clutch Sound Studios in Madison, WI to capture the audio and video from the performance. The 9-song set will be available as a CD/DVD Combo double-disc package.  And the band is cooking up a batch of vinyl LP records pressed in limited edition red opaque vinyl!  

**All BACKERS of this project will receive the album (and other pledged rewards) in advance of the official release date (mid October 2019).  And as a bonus, backers will get exclusive early access to view segments of the video recording as well!!

"We've been playing some of these songs for many years now, and over time they have morphed and twisted a bit during the live shows. So we decided to capture this 2019 performance as a small snapshot of this collection of songs and musicians. It's like a time-capsule album that represents our past as well as where we are right now as a band. We are eternally grateful for the continued support we have received as a band!"

      - Erik of The Mascot Theory
