Update on stuff:
We are officially playing Vol 2. of Growing Up is Dumb in Pomona, CA! We are very excited to play since we missed last year. We will be performing
on August 2nd which will most likely sell out, so we will also be playing a smaller pre-fest show on August 1st and the details for that aren’t posted yet, but its happening. If you were waiting for a tour..sorry, we aren’t able to tour around these shows because of work and school, and also the album not being ready.
Which brings us to the album news. Today I’ll draw my 100th page for the album comic so I’m nearing completion (the script is 120ish) We are planning on self-releasing both and posting the preorders next month as we start releasing the pages and songs for streaming. Because it’s a self released vinyl and book, its going to exhaust all the money we have saved up and then some, so
I’ll be putting together some kind of crowd funding site to get it off the ground. I’ll be throwing in a ton of unique hand made stuff to make it rad. I hope everyone is cool what that! I’ve been reluctant about using something like kickstarter in the past because, despite what many many people reassured me, part of it always felt a little like begging or even abusing fans…which is something I would never want to do in a million years. To avoid these awful feelings, I am going to go overboard to make it awesome (and if there’s one thing I’m good at, its going overboard)I haven’t done any of this sooner, because I want a quick turn around from ordering to putting in your hands! ok lets do it!
UPDATE! 7/24/14 I am trying to finish the last touches on the comic so that you will be able to download the full book PDF with your mp3s when you pre-order. My goal is to get it all up before we leave for California next week. I’ve decided not to use crowd funding or another site besides yofishboy and bandcamp for pre-orders. I’ll go into all of this when things launch but the short answer is that I crunched the numbers and the benefits vs. the amount that a third party site would be profiting off of our existing fans is disproportionate. Also, it’s taken so long to finish this project, I am ready to spend time on something new instead of six months finishing bonus items. What do you think? ok! gotta get back to work!
