Hello friends. If you're reading this, you've heard our cries for help in releasing our new album, Bad News Darlin'. Or you're just here to preorder the new album, which is cool too, and you'll see all of that info below. Just scroll past the part where we pour our giant hearts out to you and explain a little about the pieces of our souls that we're offering for a (small) price.
So we've got our new album, Bad News Darlin', all ready to share with the world but we seem to have used up any and all money on recording this beauty over the past year plus and we think it'd be a shame to keep this thing all to ourselves. That's why we're reaching out to our fans, friends, family, even our foes if they're reading this (bet they are), to ask for any help that you can give in this endeavor. Any amount of money that you donate will be helping us get closer to our goal and you know we'll appreciate that forever.
Our plan is to release Bad News Darlin' in late Spring, but if you help us out with this, we may be able to get you some special treatment including exclusive sneak peaks and limited edition merch. Doesn't that sound good as hell?!
We know we're asking for a lot, but the world does cost a lot now and you can't deny that. Also we plan on breaking it down so that you can know we're being truthful about where the money is going and not just geting some "procedures" done and having an Amazon shopping spree.
Here's the breakdown of that number we're aiming for:
You may not have been aware already, but those are some of the basic cost of manufacturing and releasing a **successful** album in today's society. We're assuming that you are one of the very important citizens that has good taste in music and/or has a passion to support the arts. Maybe you also happen to have a lot of money, because that would be great. That's an excellent combination. If you don't have "a lot of money", don't fret. We don't either so we're not judging you. Any amount helps and you can get yourself something from us starting with a donation as small as $10. All of those small donations add up too. Just think if we could get 750 people to donate just $20, we would reach our goal. That's not really that many if you think about it. We think about that many people asked Mud if he was from Texas last year just because he was wearing a cowboy hat. (Mud is not from Texas and you do not have to be from Texas to wear a cowboy hat. Not that there's anything wrong with Texas)
You're probably wondering at this point, "What's in it for me?" Well, we're about to lay that all out for you.
