I share with you the things that I love, worn like a scar. Close my eyes and lay back in the dark. I’ve lived, I’ve loved, I’ve learned. I chased my dreams. I’d die for the ones that I love. I’d give you anything.
Strange Vacation’s kickstarter reached over $1000 last night so I woke up this morning to a download link for the bonus song “Highway 85”. As to be expected, it’s incredible. I’m not going to post the audio because I like that it’s a special perk for everyone who’s a part of this. However, you can hear it on the vinyl when it’s released.
While quite a bit of money has been donated so far, they still have more than half way to go. Everyone needs to go check out the kickstarter and pledge something. Even if it’s just a couple of dollars it will help out.
I know I talk a lot about these guys and I post the kickstarter link all the time, but they’re a really special band to me and I want nothing more than for them to succeed. And I would absolutely love this album on vinyl. So, at least consider it.
- Interviewer: Aren't you terrified by the possibility that you may never find true love again?
- Elliott Smith: "If I was sure that love was not coming my way again, I wouldn't see much point in doing anything. It's a distinct possibility, but, you know, stupidity tries."
Right when we finished this album late last year we announced that we would be pressing the album exclusively on limited edition 12” Vinyl’s. Since then we’ve been contacted by so many of you whether it be via, facebook, twitter, tumblr etc. asking when can they pre order the Vinyl. We wanted involve our fans who really love our band and would like to have a physical piece of our album, and work together to make this whole project come to life. That’s why we have chose to use kickstarter. Every person out there that pledges any amount of money will be included in the liner notes for the record. Because this record is for everyone. You guys make this happen. And always have. Thank you from the bottom of my heart from every person that supports our art, and makes things like this possible. As long as we have your support we will always continue to make more albums.
I just want everyone to donate so this actually happens. Chasm is one of the most incredible albums I’ve heard in a long time.
