We are so excited about our new album, Secret Transit. We are inviting you, our most loyal supporters, to be a part of the process of releasing this record. We are doing it all DIY, which is super exciting, but also expensive. So, everyone who pledges will receive an exclusive, fans only, Digital EP titled Philanthropy, delivered to their inbox as a reward for their pledge. This EP is an exclusive collection of unreleased recordings that we have made especially for you, our pledgers!
On top of that, we have put together a list of items that we thought you’d all like. You can choose one item or more as another thank you gift for your monetary support. Some of these things are private concerts, rare merch items, and other Kaiser Cartel artifacts.
We are also happy to share with you that we will be making a pledge ourselves. Our pledge is to donate 15% of what we make after our target to the Art of Conservation. If you click on the charity tab, you can read more about what they do.
Please help us put Secret Transit in the hands of the world.
