In a time honored tradition of iconic bands before us, the Lords of Altamont thought it to be a pertinent time in history to bring ALL fans together to be included upon the making of the next album.
Revolutions on all levels are needed. Societal changes MUST occur. WE need to come together and squash the norms of big box record companies and support the independent labels. It's time for an upheaval of the norm and to the support the freedom of creative individuals.

With your donation - no matter how big or small - you can help smash the system that chokes music artists into submission. Let the Lords be Lords, wild and free again to create the next original album you have been waiting for.
The Lords of Altamont have created a multi-tiered rewards program so you can also score some righteous and RARE gear.  Up for grabs ? Limited edition patches and posters, as well as a chance to score two original Lords cuts as worn by The Preacher himself.

And as requested by The Preacher, if we exceed the original goal, %20 of ALL funds raised will be going to a 'yet to be named' animal welfare or rescue organization - because as you know, Jake loves critters.

The Story of The Lords of Altamont

The Lords of Altamont bring forth raw rock and roll fury birthed from the ultimate end to the era of peace and love. What was billed to be the “Woodstock of the West “, the infamous Altamont Free concert on December 6th, 1969 was highlighted instead by heavy drugs , motorcycle chains and brass knuckles and later punctuated  with shoving matches and fist fights. This palpable sense of bawdy foreboding resulted in four births, four deaths and extensive property damage.

While the hippies had been grooving and mellowing out in the Bay Area, the forefathers of the Lords of Altamont were playing high energy rhythms in the beer soaked venues of Detroit and the dingy clubs along LA’s Sunset Strip.  Mid-60s London RnB shares equal space with the scruffy 70s NYC Bowery among the influences of The Lords also.  They take their other cues from kids banging out primitive riffs on cheap guitars all across the USA in garages alongside chopped bikes and American v-8 muscle, lingering exhaust fumes mixing with sweat to conjure the rare elixir of real rock n roll.

The story of the band who would come to be known as The Lords of Altamont gets a proper start in late 1999. A son of Southern California and a veteran of the SoCal music scene, Jake Cavaliere - with numerous bands and projects from garage to punk dating back to the late 80s under his belt - enlisted fellow motorcycle rider and bandmate of the instro/surf sensation The Bomboras,  Johnny Devilla, to form something new. Max Eidson, Doran Shelley, and Gabriel Hammond rounded out the original lineup known as “The First Five”. Besides holding their first show at the legendary venue The Garage in Hollywood, high points include touring as the support act for their primitive rock n roll idols The Cramps, infamous rock gods The Who as well as counting the late Michael Davis of the MC5 as a past member.

Through personnel changes and various adventures over the past  15+ years, The Lords of Altamont continue to release albums and Jake “The Preacher” Cavaliere , along with his assemblage of gritty and talented personalities, continues to captivate audiences with unparalleled hard driven performances the world over.

Alright everybody - less than a week to go !
As we speak, Jake is busy getting the album mastered and working with Simon from 1 Horse Town on some incredible artwork for the album.
As a dedicated Lords fan since the very first record, I must say that this album is going to blow your mind. It's been awhile since the fellas got together and recorded originals, and this will NOT disappoint. You Lords fans know the deal too - it's not just the songs - its everything - the art, the concept, the quality and the heart and soul.

Grab a righteous limited edition poster designed by 1 Horse Town or the TCB inspired patch designed by Chris Kro before its too late. These will become collectors items for sure.
The Lords are more than halfway to their goal - and every dollar counts, and every share counts.

Support independent music !

Thank you so much for your support ! The Lords have sold out of all the Platinum Level rewards AND both of The Preachers cuts are now spoken for.
The love, support and righteousness received from this campaign has really brought an unbridled energy into the studio and the guys have nothing but gratitude to all that have donated so far.
While we are still running the campaign to reach the goal, we will now be choosing random donations to receive surprise gifts, so really - no donation is too small.

The guys will be reaching out to Platinum Level donors personally, as well as A.C.A.B Imports who surprised us all with a very generous donation.
Lords fans are like family, and this campaign is truly proving that.
Thanks for donating and please keep sharing !
