of goal

Over the last few years I feel blessed to have been able to travel around the world and live out my songs in places I never dreamt of ever seeing, meeting so many great people at merch tables, barrooms and even down the pit. These experiences have impacted my music and my life in the most wonderful way.

It’s been a while since my last album, Love It To Life, came out. In that time I’ve written what I feel is my most vital collection of songs yet, working this past winter with a close circle of friends in an old downtown studio where I used to rehearse in my early hardcore punk days with Heart Attack. Waking up every day with that kind of freedom in mind, I’ve decided to take the process back into my own hands and create this new record on our terms.

With that all being said, we’d love to have you (the fans, friends, foes and patron saints) get involved in this journey with us from the beginning. We’re aiming to release this record early next year (there’s over 40 new songs rolling around the rehearsal room so who knows what’s going to happen), and by pledging to our campaign you will be granted special inside access to updates directly from the band throughout its making (videos, photos, inside jokes, and who knows, maybe previews of new songs). You’ll be able to purchase the record before anyone else in the free world. We’re offering some great exclusives, from limited edition merchandise to personalized wacky experiences (some musical and non-musical).

A portion of the money will also be donated to Light of Day, who funds research for Parkinson’s, a great charity that I’ve been involved with for many years.

As I write this I’m packing up the Silver Machine for the fist day of basic tracking at a beautiful farmhouse deep in the woods of Virginia. I’m looking forward to sharing these songs with you and singing them out on stages and over microphones around the globe. Thank you for your constant support and always believing.
