Our Bail Money album is set to be released on Sept 19th and we're offering very cool packages on our Bail Money Funding Package page where you can pre-order your copy of the album and choose from a variety of other things to get with your copy.

Update! We've reached our funding goal! Go crew! That means that everyone who has ordered (or will order) a funding package of $15.00 and up will be given a free Window Decal!

Now the pressure's really on. If we reach $1600.00, we will offer a MYSTERY ITEM to everyone who ordered a package of $15.00 and up. It could be a cassette, a ribbon magnet, a complete music collection flash drive, or even an old do-rag from Sharkbait's closet. It could be anything! Share the link with all your friends and help reach our new, higher goal, and get more swag!

Only -1 Days Left!
Deadline: Sept 1, 2014
Goal: $1400.00
Total Raised: $1641.00
