What We Want To Do

We want to make the best debut album ever recorded.  This isn't hyperbole.  We firmly believe that, if given the chance, that is what we are going to create.  This album will stand up against anything ever recorded by artists like Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, etc.  The quality of our album is not in question, but we need your help to make it happen.  


How We Will Do It

We have studio time booked in June of this year, and the entire album is already written.  After recording is done, we plan to release the album in August, which will be available online for FREE download. 


Where Your Money Will Go

The funds will be used to cover recording costs, paying a web developer to make our website, and a small amount will go to promotion so that we can get the album out to the world.


Where The Project Is Now

We have ten songs completed and ready to record.  As of now, we are sharing the rough demos with our producer and planning the production for each song (pre-production).
