Chipsurf Pipeline is our first album and represents the melding of the surf and chiptune genres into a new genre we have simply called chipsurf. Part of what makes this album special is that sound. To that end, we thought it would be fantastic to release the album on vinyl - both to pay homage to the vintage styling of both chiptunes and surf; but also because, well, just the idea of hearing chip-music and surf guitar on vinyl is hauntingly intriguing.
We decided to try to approach this in a realistic way. Our minimum goal is to be able to press a 7" single and we think that, with a little help, we can do that. If we end up getting a lot of help, we will do a full 12" LP instead. If we somehow surpass that, we will add fancy things like colored vinyl, limited edition t-shirts, or maybe a chiptune EP on a real NES cartridge!
We think our fans should have a say in what comes out of this as well. So anyone who pledges support to the project will be able to vote on which two 2 songs make it on the 7" single, or any songs (totally 18 minutes per side) for the LP should we be able to press an LP instead. Votes are based upon pledge amounts, so the more you pledge, the more your votes count!
We think it's an exciting and awesome project and we hope you do too! That said, regardless of whether you opt to participate in this project, we want to say a heartfelt Thank You to all our fans for your support!
