The Triumph Over Our Shipwreck
Triumph Over Shipwreck is comprised of Jayell James, Urk Shred, Manny Lazano, Miguel Apodaca, and Robert House, just five regular dudes. They're talented musicians, but at the end of the day, they're human. This album is an amalgam of the pain endured with touring relentlessly, being failed by record labels and suits.
This album is about showing the world that it isn't about your label, it's about you the fans and the audience. With your support, we plan to make Heavy Is The Head about the strength of the musician and the strength of the audience. Every time you buy an album, throw down at a show, put on our shirt, you're an investor. Nothing should get in between you, the fan, and the musician.
Your Funds Will Go Toward
The earnings of this pre-sale campaign help us establish what mediums we'll be distributing on as well as what platforms we'll be delivering the content thorugh. We will be working as our own distributor and you will all work as our investors.
Even if we don't reach our goal, 20% of our overall earnings will be donated to the Red Cross for their tireless work in relief efforts, the remainder will be used to release on a smaller scale. This means we will probably half the order of vinyl and CD's we press for sale at shows
