We’re back in the studio tonight mixing Kind Eyes, with the new addition of Erik Kang’s (from Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s) violins, and man does this song sound amazing now. It’s great to be back in the studio again, and every time I’m here somehow I get even more excited for this album. Hopefully you’ve had a chance to check out the preview we posted a few days ago, and I hope we can share some more coming up soon.
And now, this might be the delicious American Budweiser in the American-flag cans talking, but I love you guys. And I apologize for not posting more Mediocre Fights recently. So here’s my pledge to you now – I’m going to make you a new one tomorrow. Nay, I shall make you two Mediocre Fights tomorrow. They’ll probably be mediocre, but at this point you should probably expect that kind of thing. I hope you’ll forgive me for not posting more consistently, but the album and everything has definitely kept us plenty busy.
We’ve also been working on more of our Kickstarter awards recently, which I’m also excited to share with you. We’ve been making some playing cards for a few of our donors recently, and as soon as we send them out we’ll be sharing them with you on the website. It’s probably some of the least mediocre work we’ve done. Which means it’s good… not like so-bad-it’s-not-even-mediocre kind of work.
Now, I’ll leave you with the random quote from the studio – “NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition!”
Words cannot express how thankful we are to have friends, family and fans like you. With another 4 days left before our project officially closes, you helped us reach 100% of our goal! THANK YOU!!! We’re hoping to give each of you who contributed a special thank you, what exactly that will be is still a surprise (mostly because we haven’t decided what it will be yet). Also a HUGE thank you to Kickstarter for making this all possible, definitely check out the site for other awesome projects that you can back.
And if you haven’t contributed yet, there’s still time! We can definitely use the money to make the album even better, and you’re guaranteed to get some awesome rewards as a thank-you.
The video that we recently put up for our Kickstarter project clocks in at around 3 minutes. What you don’ t know is that we actually had an hour of film, and we had to leave a lot behind on the cutting room floor. Which also explains why the most-used phrase in the video is “We’re not going to be able to use any of this, are we.”
Here’s some of our favorite moments from the uncut footage, and you’ll pretty quickly see why these didn’t make it into the real deal.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the album so far, we’re at over 20% of our goal! You can contribute on our Kickstarter page and learn more about the different rewards you can get here: The Mediocre Fight Makes an Album
Hello friends/lovers/family/fans/strangers/hobos in libraries! The Mediocre Fight is recording an album, and we need your help! We’ve been writing in the studio for almost the past year, and it’s finally time for us to record an album. We’ve got the songs written, but it takes a lot of time and money to make a professional album and we need your help.
We’ve set up a Kickstarter project to help fund our project. It’s a little bit like a PBS pledge drive, in that the more you can help out the bigger the gifts we can give you in return. Some of the fine rewards you can win for helping are signed copies of the CD, signed prints of your favorite Mediocre Fight of the Day, t-shirts, your own custom trading card with an illustration and biography, private concerts, your own theme song or jingle, and more!
We can’t do this with out you, and we’re incredibly thankful for everyone that can help out. The more you can help now, the better the album will end up being in the end. Even a dollar will get our undying gratitude! (although if you pay for the entire album one of us will probably marry you or your daughter).
