Debut Album

Join IHATE in the making of our new record & get access to kick ass exclusives and updates! #BeTheMachete

As some of you might have heard, I’ve been working on an exciting new side project called IHATE. Rather than just press up copies and ship them out, I wanted to do something a little different this time around.

That’s why I’ve teamed up with PledgeMusic to release this album directly to you guys – my awesome fans! No record label. No middle man. No nonsense.

Here’s how it works – you can pledge for any of the items or experiences listed on the right side of the screen. Everything offered is totally exclusive to this campaign and won’t be available anywhere else. Everyone who pledges gets a digital download of the new album when it comes out in a couple months.

Once you pledge, the doors open wide, and you get instant access to the ‘pledger-only’ part of the site where I’ll post exclusive content and keep you all up to speed on what’s going on with me.

Best of all, a portion of the pledges will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund, an excellent organization whose work is near and dear to my heart. They’re a great group, so I really hope you’ll help me support them.

You guys have been there with me from the start, so let’s put out this record together.


5% post goal
5% of any money raised after the goal is reached will go to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
