Today, we launch what may be the most exciting thing we've ever launched on the internet. That's right ... it's a Kickstarter Campaign. We've got our new album all finished up, and it's just dying to get out there, but we need a little help getting it to the masses. And that's where you come in. With even just a little help from each and every one of you, we'll be able to get our record pressed, released, circulated and we might even be able to get some new t-shirts and posters.
There are all sorts of rewards for different levels of donations, like getting the album early, a special screenprint by Travis Bone, Skype concerts, cover-song albums, unreleased demos, bowling / disc-golf with Jake, guitar lessons with Jamie, even a 5-song EP written just for you, about whatever you want.
And there's a whole lot more. So, make sure to head over and check it out. AND, even if you can't donate - we'd love it if you'd share the link on facebook, twitter or just email it to a friend ... just sending it to one more person will help us out immensely.
May 10th, SxSW & Daytrotter
By the way, we have an official release date. It's May 10, 2011! Our friends at Northplatte Records will be releasing this one, and so you'll be sure to see it in all the local record stores and important online spaces. As you may have noticed, we've got a ton of tour dates this Spring to promote the album, including a stop at SxSW for an official showcase and in Rock Island, IL to record a Daytrotter session! Make sure to head over to the tour dates page to see all the new dates, and keep an eye on it for more to come. As always, if you've got any suggestions for us (venues, other bands, house concerts) or if you'd be willing to get the word out by putting up posters for a show in your town - send us an email and let us know.
And 1 more show before we hit the road...
Last, but certainly not least - we've got one last show in our hometown coming up next week, before we hit the road for a real long while. It's February 5th at Urban Lounge, it starts at 9PM and we'll be playing alongside Spell Talk. AND you can get tickets for $5, right here. We hope you'll come out and send us off on a high note.
