The New Album

Join IvR in making their new album! Pre-order the Vinyl, get amazing art & exclusives from the band!


of goal

Greetings from the Mothership, dear visitor! IvR is thrilled to have you on board for the making of our new record.

We have some fantastic things in store for you: Original artwork by the band, the pre-order of the album on limited edition vinyl, band photos and videos available exclusively to you on Pledge, epic music download bundles, care packages, handmade books, live shows, and for one super-generous soul, a chance to become the hero in an animated short of our making. Choose your adventure to the right and become a part of the journey!

We will be recording in an analog studio, straight to tape, in the beautiful mountain hideaway of Ojai, California. Producer Matt Linesch, a wizard engineer known for his work with Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeroes, will be manning the console and helping to steer the ship.

The album will be released as a multimedia music and art package. A Limited Edition Vinyl pressing will feature original artwork by the band-members. The online release will include videos and animation inspired by the music.

10% of the money raised above our goal will go to Sound Art, an amazing non-profit in Los Angeles dedicated to providing Free Music Education to children of all ages. Sound Art offers programs at all grade levels, during and after school, at community centers, and partners with neighborhood organizations.

We love you,
Thank you for your support!
Milo, Nikita, Micah, Maggie, Jeff, Tony

If we play a show in your town, we’ll play a set at your place. What’s your favorite song? We’ll learn it and play it for you. Lead singer Maggie Lally will teach you how to hula hoop.

Your Own West Coast Live Show + Executive Producer Credit


If you’re in Washington, Oregon, or California, we will come and play a show for you and your tribe. We’ll also consider driving to Utah, because it’s strange and beautiful. Maybe we can all go canoeing. If you’re not on the West Coast, drop us a line anyway. Maybe we can work something out!
