Backer update 9.0 - acoustic performance of "New Constellation" and a note from Glen
This has been an exciting and busy couple of months. We’ve been out on the road across the States, overjoyed to play the new material and see the Kickstarter supporters singing along from the audience. Thank you all!
So...we are in the final days of the campaign. Artwork has had a few unavoidable scheduling setbacks but is now racing full-steam ahead. My good friend Ben Ciccati has been drawing up a storm - all the images you’ve been seeing on the site are his. For graphic design we’ve brought in Kii Arens, who will put together the LP and CD Kickstarter packages, as well as poster and shirt design. I love seeing what the two of them are coming up with, and we’ll share it with you soon.
A few days ago I bought a tin space man and shot a lyric video for New Constellation. It’s fairly silly, but if anyone needs motion-tracked rockets added to their home videos I now know how. We might sign the spaceman and have him as a Kickstarter item if people are interested. Let us know.
Anyway: Thank you again, and please keep spreading the word. If your friends (or Twitter followers, or Friends) like Toad let them know about the campaign, and if you like the record (and the extra tracks) tell them about that, too. Please. With sugar on top.
Many more shows to come, an acoustic EP to record, people to see and places to go...Say hello if you’re nearby.
