We are releasing our 2nd record "From the North" and need your help!!

Family. Friends. Lovers. Future lovers, and lovers past.

  We need your help!

We are releasing our sophomore record "From the North", and we want to do it right.  We know it's been a while.  Trust us, it was not our plan.  Things happen, people change.  People grow, beards grow.  Unfortunately Pete shaves his all the time...You should see it in all of it's glory, it's really quite phenomenal. But we digress.

Seriously, look.  This is kind of our last resort for this record. We hit a lot of obstacles after the release of 2011's "Tennessee Rain". In lieu of renting a studio to record a new album, we invested everything we could into building our own.  We were very lucky that one of our founding members, Jason Harris, spent most of his adult life honing his craft to become an extraordinary, certified engineer.    We hate to ask for anything. But, in order to present this record the way we have envisioned it, we need your support.

This is where your funds will go.

Okay. So, literal breakdown is this:

  1. Cd Pressing(first run):            $634.00
  2. Vinyl Pressing(first run):          $1800.00
  3. T-shirts                                    $586
  4. Odds and ends promo shtuff  $170.00
This all adds up to:::::::::::::::::::::::::::$3190.00

We have had a ton of requests for us to release this next record on vinyl..We would love to...it is very expensive!!  But, with how hard we've worked on this record, we feel it would be a shame to not release it on vinyl.  It will still, of course, be available on CD and digital formats!

T Shirts, Stickers, Accessories, etc..  We are embarking on our first tour in support of "From the North" right after the album is released, and will continue to tour the States throughout the year.  Shirt sales will account for the majority of funds we need to get from show to show, and to help us eat and stay alive.  Stickers, posters and other promotional materials are good for, well just that...promotion!  We need to send show posters to every city we are playing in to get the word out that we will be in your town.

We are going to go all out with these "perks".  We want to show you how much your contributions mean to us...If you want a Michael Jordan rookie card, we will take it from Jared Phancook and send it to you for just $25 bucks...If you donate $3,000 dollars, we will send Jay Harris to your house and he will act out the movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in it's entirety...Fantastic!

Alright, those aren't actual perks...(though Jay might just come to your house and do that randomly for no reason...he loves that movie)  We WILL be offering some cool stuff...From Shirts, CD's, guitar picks, album credits, posters, rare recordings, custom concerts, studio recordings at OUR studio with any TGN members playing on YOUR song, to guest spots for a live TGN in studio performance on Radio 104.5!

Here is a video from our last Radio 104.5 performance:  


This is the out of print baseball tee:

Now, if we dont reach our goal. :( We wont be able to release "From the North" on vinyl.  It would be the first to go simply because everything else is much more of a necessity for touring.  When all is said in done, if we've raised more than enough to cover everything else, we will put what we have left towards making a Special Edition 7 inch(45) for all you vinyl lovers out there.  If that is not feasible, then anything that is left after the costs outside of the vinyl will go to touring expenses and 2nd pressings.  

Rest assured that every penny of your donations WILL be used for The Grand Nationals.  Even if we hit our goal, we are all still contributing our own individual funds to the project.  There are many more costs on top of what we are hoping to raise here.  Touring can be insanely expensive in itself along with promoting the album, photo shoots, artwork, video, etc..  

Anything you are doing to help make this all possible, we deeply appreciate.  Whether you are donating, posting this page on your social media sites, or just listening to our music; it all means so much to us!  Thank you for reading this seemingly never ending succession of words, and please SHARE IT WITH EVERYONE YOU CAN!!
