20 years of making music is a long time to look back and reflect upon…so that’s why we’re not going to!
That’s right, it’s ONBOARD AND ONWARD, steaming ahead to new adventures with our first-ever PledgeMusic campaign! If you have made it here, it is safe to say you all rank as one of our true fans, for which we are eternally grateful.
Whether you’ve been with us 20 years or are a brand new fan, this campaign is for you. It is YOU who have come out to the shows, worn our t-shirts, slapped a sticker on your car, spread the word to your friends and families or simply have enjoy listening to our music: YOU are the reason we’ve been a band this long, spending every day pursuing what we love to do.
Through this campaign, we hope to say thank you. By pledging on any one of the exclusives listed to the right, you will be unlocking the doors to the backstage, so-to-speak. Not only will you be getting the new album in advance of its official street release, we will attempt to bring you behind the curtain a little more as we write and record.
Throughout the coming months of this campaign, we will be posting updates where you can hear and see some glimpses of what’s on slate…perhaps some fresh demos or first-looks at new album artwork or some from-the-vault videos. It’s new territory for us, so it will be a work-in-progress as we find new ways to communicate about our process, but hopefully it will become a unique experience for us all and a way of saying THANKS for paying attention to our work.
Another exciting aspect of this campaign, in addition to the updates & exclusives, is that 15% of any money raised beyond our 100% target will be going to Love Hope Strength (http://lovehopestrength.org), a wonderful non-profit organization we’ve worked with before whose mission is to raise funds and awareness in order to benefit people with cancer and leukemia. Based in Denver, CO, Love Hope Strength carries out sponsored treks and climbs to the world’s highest mountains, often performing musical concerts at the peak. Fun stuff for a worthy cause…
