UPDATE: We did it! I can't believe it, but we met our initial goal in LESS THAN 24 HOURS. You guys are the best! Since we've got some time (and expenses) left, we're setting a new stretch goal of $2000. If we hit that mark, we'll cover Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone" and The Misfits' "Skulls" and EVERY BACKER will get a digital copy. Let's do it!

We're incredibly excited and eager to share our first full-length album with you all! We are proud of these arrangements and the hard work we've put in so far. Since we're recording this ourselves, we've got the time and the willpower to make sure it sounds great. But we also want to present to you a finished physical product unencumbered by budgetary restrictions and shitty, lackluster packaging. With your help, we won't need to cut any corners. We'll be able to hand you a record that we know is the absolute best that it can be. That means colored vinyl, clear artwork, and high quality CDs in digipak cases.

Risks and challenges

We're confident that we can work through any obstacles that may arise. Out-of-pocket costs are our main hurdle, and that's why we're asking for your help. Worst case scenario, we experience unexpected production delays and our release date will be pushed back. But rest assured, we will be releasing this no matter what.
