Hi, I’m Seth Tiven and I wanted to announce that Dumptruck is set to return with our first studio release in 17 years! But in order to do that, we need your help!

Now maybe there’s some of you out there who vaguely remember us from the haze of the 1980’s and our first 3 records, and maybe you heard we got tied up in a lawsuit for years – that’s true. Maybe there’s even a few of you who followed along after the lawsuit ended, with our admittedly sporadic output in the 90’s. There might even be a couple of folks out there who got my solo CD, which came out about 12 years ago. So what’s been going on since then?

Well, this new record, which is going to be called “Wrecked”, got started about 10 years ago with an attempted reunion between me and Kirk Swan, who I started the band with but who left after the 2nd record. We had played a few reunion shows and had a lot of fun, so we decided to go into the studio and cut some basic tracks for a bunch of songs and see what happened. And that went well, so Kirk and I continued to work on overdubs at our respective home studios, him in LA and me in Austin. I went out there a couple of times so we could work on stuff together, and things proceeded well, though very slowly. After a bit of time back in our home cities, listening to what we had done, it became apparent that we both had pretty different visions of how the final record should sound. So Kirk made a decision to use his songs for a solo record and I put things on a shelf for a while so I could figure out what to do with the tracks we had recorded.

Eventually, after several false starts, I decided the best thing to do would be to cut a few more basic tracks (so I would at least have a complete record when it was finished), and then get to work on cleaning up and finishing the record. So we cut a few more songs and then started in on overdubs and then, finally, mixing. There were a lot of interruptions, family issues would come up and we’d end up abandoning things for months at a time (that’s one difference between making a record in your 50’s as opposed to your 20’s), but we finally got it finished and, despite taking about 10 times as long as we originally anticipated, we ended up with a record we’re really happy with.

Now that we’re ready to release – WE NEED YOU! We’ve launched this Pledge campaign in the hopes of getting this record directly to the fans. In the process of preparing for this, we’ve dug up a whole bunch of Dumptruck rarities – original vinyl releases from the 80’s, a few vintage (and unworn) t-shirts from our touring days, and posters. I hope you find something old and something new for you to grab and in turn help us release this new album.

The time is now for this music to finally be released and you can help make that happen.
