Huge Thank You!

Hello Friends,

I just saw the most humbling thing I have seen in eight long years. You, our fans, paid for us to make a new album through your pledges in less than 55 minutes. Honestly, I had hoped we might make it- if anything in six weeks or so. All I and we as a group can say is – THANK YOU. Thank you for believing in us. As you continue to make pledges, I guess we will continue to add items to pledge for, as we are very serious about playing shows and the possibility of touring- and your pledges will make this possible. Thank you so much, and thank you for showing us that HOPE STILL FLIES.

Your friend,

Reese Roper

Help FIF Make the Album of your Dreams!

A Note from FIF:
We can’t believe it has actually been 8 years ago today that we rocked out with you at the Fillmore in Denver, on a snowy evening as we celebrated our last show. Now, all these years (and marriages and kids) later we feel the desire to write new material and make a record!

So, down to business:
We need your support now more than ever. The inspiration and energy to create an amazing record is there but this time we will be working without the support of a label. This gives us incredible artistic freedom, but it also means we need to raise our own financing.

Our hope is to release an album in 2013, ten years after our initial final show. We are shooting for the financial goal of $30,000. Your pledges will be used to pay for demoing new material, recording, mixing, mastering, and associated travel expenses.

Keep in mind, this budget covers making the album only. Every dollar we raise over $30,000 will be used for such things as promotion of the album once it’s released because we think it would be great to have this album reach as many people as possible! Additional funds could also enable us to play some shows, because yes, we would love to play shows! We will keep you posted every step of the way.

We have recorded this song for you as a little taste of our new material. We are super proud of how it turned out and hope you rock out to it and share it with your friends.

Thank you so much, every one of you for all the love, kindness, support, humor, prayers and friendship you have shown us since 1995. To our absolute joy this band continues to be more than just a band to many of you….and you are more than just folks at a show to us. If the past is any indication of the future we may all be in for a very wild ride.

Sincerely yours,
Five Iron Frenzy
