Hey friends, family, and music lovers!
It’s that time again. We’re heading back into the studio to make our new album, Infinite Loop!
For the first time ever we’re hoping to work with a producer and engineer outside of Seattle. He’s someone we respect, adore, and truly admire. Chad Copelin has worked with tons of bands including Avril Lavigne, Train, Other Lives, Andrew Belle, Graham Colton and Hanson. Yeah, kinda crazy. Chad has a great studio in Norman, Oklahoma called Blackwatch, and we’re hoping to spend twenty days in the Sooner State this summer while we track the new songs (and hopefully avoid tornados).
In the year since our last album, we’ve toured America, played radio stations, festivals, Safeco Field, and lots of small shows, have acquired a fantastic drummer, and practiced our butts off. Needless to say, lots of things have changed. Quite simply, we got better. We are a new band, and we want to share that with you. We have a collection of songs that we’re so happy about and have had a blast writing them. It’s been an incredible experience playing these new songs live and seeing our fans’ reactions.
We really want to make you guys a part of our next album, and we don’t want pretend to be mysterious rock stars that hide in secrecy. We want you to know what it is really like to make the new Weather album! We want you to know what it’s like to be in a band, to know how much work it takes, and what a big a part you play in making these things happen. That’s why we’ve teamed up with PledgeMusic — to let you in on every step of the process.
We know that it is difficult to give money, but our projected goal is the absolute bare minimum of what we need and does not cover the cost of mastering, reproduction, publicity, or the possibility of cutting the record to vinyl. We’re hoping to exceed our goal by quite a bit, so we have some extra incentives in our back pocket for when we need it (including getting in the van and coming to see YOU).
Thank you all for listening to our music, sharing with your friends, and taking the time to read this. You have no idea how much it means to us.
Mychal, Andrew, Zarni, Jordan, and Aaron — CFOK
