We are pleased to finally announce that we are ready to record our long awaited debut album and we need your support to make this project a reality. We are set to record with producer Phil Kinman at his studio in Pinner, Northwest London and have the album mastered by mastering engineer Ade Emsley.
If you Pledge today you are ‘pre-ordering’ our, as yet untitled, debut album and will receive a digital copy in April 2013, months before the official release date!
There are also many more exclusive items available such as guitar tabs, hand written lyric sheets, your name in the liner notes, guitar and bass lessons, autographed drum skins, VIP tickets to the album launch party and even Tollef’s signed Gibson SG or Max’s signed Fender Jazz Bass used to record on the album!
10% of any money raised after the target is reached will go to MacMillan Cancer Support.
As we want you to be a part of the process we will also be keeping you updated regularly with photos, videos, studio blogs and much more so that you are involved in this album as much as we are… Please support us now and join our swarm!
