Dear everyone who helped us with this campaign,
We will never forget this last month and it will only push us harder to make better music. We will keep you all in the know as things progress and wanted to give you a heads up that we are beginning the mountain of work that comes with being this successful…
- For people who bought clothing – you will contacted via email about size (and choice of sweatshirt if applicable).
Since the tee shirt buyers also get a cd with their shirt, it may take a little longer for you to get contacted (because you have to wait until the album comes out right?).
- for those who grabbed the "league of ordinary gentlemen’, we will be needing a nice little picture of your mug so that we can slap it on the back of your laminate. In the meantime while waiting to be contacted, you should find a picture you want to use.
We appreciate your patience as this is going to take some time. We have to organize everyone into the different perks and make sure we get everything right!
We plan to document as much of the fulfillment process as possible, so hopefully you will all have some insight into the work load! It frightens me already.
So again, thank you so much and stay tuned for updates from us as the process goes on.
Here is a little idea of some of the stuff I like to play on piano.

Hey All, our apologies for the slow updates on our end. We have been busy pounding through pre-production and writing / re writing / ri ri writing so much stuff it’s getting very confusing!
We wanted to quickly take some time to thank two people who provided high quality referrals for our campaign.
For those of you who haven’t used IndieGoGo before, they provide a pretty informative backend of the website. When we look at our side of the website, we can see who shared our campaign link, how many people they shared it with, and how many contributions came in as a direct result of their referrals. It’s pretty neat.
That said, “Abram Mamet” and “Stefan Morley” have to be thanked for sending our campaign link to some people they knew would really care about it. They didn’t necessarily blast it out every single place they could – but tried to target people who they knew might pay attention. And it worked!
We wanted to make it clear that their referrals did not go unnoticed. That’s why we are going to offer them each 3 free pieces of merch from our online merch store. Their choice. (protestthehero.merchnow.com)
We also wanted to open up five more slots for the next top five “referrers” by the end of the campaign. You will get the same treatment. A giant thanks from us, and your choice of 3 free pieces of merch from our online store. So please start sharing if this interests you! There is a running chart of the top 34 in the Gallery under “files”.
Lastly, with the end of our campaign in sight, and having already met our goal – we are going to be adding a new perk every couple of days. This is for anyone who thought they would wait until the end to contribute and basically an open invitation for us to get inventive on your asses.
The first one we are offering up is the TIMMY PIANO JAM! – go check it out if you have a minute. This is going to be hilarious.

We have destroyed our goal – and it’s thanks to all of you. We currently have 5800+ funders!? That’s ridiculous!
After the initial response that shocked us to our core, we decided to put together a little thank you video. It’s a bit late, but you’ll get the idea!
We also wanted to refresh the perks a little bit, so have added some sweaters. You can check them out on the main page and in the gallery too.
Stay tuned for more perk swaps.
Can’t wait to pack, sign, and kiss all these orders before they go out the door.
Another big thanks goes out to our friends Marc Ricciardelli and Simon Shohet for helping us make both this video and the initial campaign video – these guys are idea machines, so we can’t take all the credit.
Fellas and Fellettes!
Some of you may know we are doing an AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit today at 3pm EST. http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/
We will also be replacing a few of the less popular perks this week for some new stuff. So keep checking back if you are interested. Some of them are pretty cuel, and will be just as exclusive as the rest!
Lastly, we were the ‘campaign of the day’ the other day on IGG, and are now on feature for the week! Not bad for a bunch of crumb bums.
Choady celebrates our success by supplexing truke into a bunch of empties.
