Thank you for visiting our GoFundMe page! We are very excited to get into the studio and record the music we’ve been working on for the past year. Even more exciting is that we want YOU to be there with us every step of the way.

Whether you’ve been with us since our very first show years ago, or you just joined us recently, you are the guiding force and the fuel behind our success. We’ve always been big believers in doing the best we can with what we have, and we continuously challenge ourselves to be better today than we were yesterday.

Our first album was recorded in a shed, on a prehistoric 8-track recorder.

It in no way compared in recording quality to anything that you would ever hear on the radio, but people bought it, sang the words at our shows, and even tattooed lyrics from it on their bodies. Our fan base grew. Our next CD was partially recorded in a real studio, and it was better in quality than the one before, so we one-upped ourselves the next time, and with support of our amazing friends and fans, we recorded the next CD 'March in the Dark ' in a professional studio. This CD is what got us signed to a record label, enabled us to go on three tours, record music videos, and gain so many amazing experiences and memories.

We have spent the last twelve months writing new songs. 30 songs to be exact. By process of elimination, we narrowed it down to 15, and then finally the top 6 that we feel are the best songs we’ve ever written. Our growth challenge this time? We sent the songs to the producer who worked on some of our favorite albums of all time... albums that largely affected who Anyone’s Guess is today- Brian Virtue ...and he loved them! Brian has worked with bands like 30 Seconds to Mars, Chevelle, Audioslave, Jane’s Addiction, Deftones (just to name a few), and to this day we can’t believe that he wants to work on our new album. As a producer, Brian will help our songs reach their full potential!We need to fly him in from LA, make sure he has a place to sleep, rent a studio for two weeks, record and mix down all the songs, send the record off to mastering, get it pressed, and then promote it. Our goal of $10,000 is what we need to make this happen. How did we get there? Here's a breakdown of the costs. As you can see, making great music isn't cheap!

Studio time/Producer -           $8500
Physical Pressing -                     $900
Reward/Merch production- $600

                                                Total: $10,000

We want to release the best album we have ever released, with the producer we could have only dreamed of working with. Any funds that we receive over our goal will only go to make the album better. Marketing, PR, videos, touring and merch, it'll all go right back into the project. That may sound a bit haughty, or far fetched to some, but we know that’s what we are capable of… we will not settle for anything less.

From the beginning, Anyone’s Guess has decided to do things a little bit differently. To keep this tradition alive, we have decided to offer some unique rewards in exchange for your support on the next record. The rewards listed below are just our little ways of saying “Thank you”.

We've also added something extra just for you! The above bonuses will unlock when the activation levels are reached. The sooner we hit those goals, the sooner these extras will become available to everyone who donates!Just remember, no contribution is too small, and no pledge will go unappreciated. The greatest reward of all, no matter how much or how little is pledged, will continue to be knowing that we’ve played an important part in each others lives.

We learned a lot by making the first four Anyone’s Guess albums - the good, the bad, the ugly, and the expensive! With your help, this will be the best Anyone’s Guess album to date, and we will make sure that you stay in the loop every step of the way!

We're tuning in with some exciting news and you are the first ones to know!

Here's a quick overview:

- 'Commitment Issues' is being released to the general public officially on January 6th 2017. HOWEVER, if you pledged $20+ to our campaign, you will receive a digital copy of the whole album in November (followed by whatever rewards you pledged to).

- Our single and its video are being released on November 18th, and you get an exclusive preview beforehand, of course.

- We are doing an Orlando-only (that's our hometown) CD release party on December 2nd, 2016 at Venue 578 (aka Firestone) in Downtown Orlando, FL....and regardless of the amount you pledged, you get up to 4 free tickets to the show! Just shoot us an email and let us know how many you want and where we should send them.

Again, thank you so much for your support and we can't wait to show you what we've achieved because of you.

It's official! The CD artwork is done and we have a winner. Thank you for helping us decide.
Now we have to build the rest of the CD artwork around the winning piece, as well as get the 'Commitment Issues' shirts, mugs, posters and all that good stuff done.

We also have some great news about the release, so be on a lookout on our social media.

Thanks again!

That's it, folks- the funding campaign is now officially closed. We came in just a bit short of our goal, and we're amazed at how much support we've had during this campaign. It feels so good to know that so many people have our back, and we're really excited to get you the final product.

Now the action camera update! We used the most efficient method of picking the pledge that gets the camera: asking an unsuspecting victim to name a number. The number was 17, which we matched up to the 17th person to pledge to the campaign. Congrats, Wes!

Thank you again for your support & talk to you soon!
