I was never able to get into them even though they're local guys.

The pledge matching has actually ended, but there are less than 9 hours left to help them out regardless.

woah! ap.net got WAY nicer over the years...

Thank you all, you're really awesome people, and way kind to our cause. =)

4 more hours, our new goal is to try and get to 800 backers (10% of our FB fanbase), even $1 gets you in on all of the updates, if any of you want to watch an independent band make a record in the studio without the fetters of a label. It's gonna be a fun ride!

Somehow your amazing LEGO-Ninjago-themed EP went under my radar. That jank was cash.

Really glad you guys made this. Stoked to hear a new album.

There has been a ton of kickstarter hate recently in my facebook feed. People say that kickstarter is the equivalent of a band "selling out". I don't agree with this. I'm happy that it allows bands to put out music that they normally wouldnt be able to on their own.

Power to the bands

I think for the most part it's the ridiculous amounts bands ask for. I don't need to hear about how much it costs to make a record and how expensive it is to market it etc... Just making a statement on what most complaints I read were about. I tend to agree - most bands ask for too much.

Lego Ninja money can't fund the album?

Kidding. I love Kickstarter and the ability for bands to be label-less but I just hope that the platform isn't exploited and bands realize just exactly what their fans do for them.

Also, make sure the prizes match the donation amount. I've seen bands give pure bullshit for fans giving hard earned money (200-500+) and get something hardly worth that. I love The Lawrence Arms but if I paid 500 dollars of my own money I'd expect Brendan Kelly to be washing my dishes and walking my dog for a week.

Love the independency in music and the freedom bands have though. Pretty great to see.

Love their first albums, haven't heard them in a while. Good to see they are still around and doing it on their own. Good luck, I'll keep an eye out!
