The record was recorded at Applehead Recording in Woodstock, NY produced by Chris Bittner and the band. The effort was also engineered and mixed by Bittner while mastering was handled by Chris Athens at Chris Athens Mastering. The artwork was completed by Katie Williams.
You can preorder the album via the Kickstarter link here.
The band shared the following:
🚨 NEW ALBUM + KICKSTARTER ANNOUNCED 🚨
It is with EXTREME EXCITEMENT, and without further hesitation- We will be releasing our LONG OVERDUE new album 'I Feel Like I'm Becoming A Ghost' on July 28th. We're doing this entire release ourselves. We've already started the process, but we still need your help. We've created a KICKSTARTER, and are asking for your support.
With what has happened to us label-wise over the years, we decided to take control of our own narrative. This band is the most creative and revitalized we have felt in a very long time. We're ready to show you all.
For this Kickstarter, we've created some tiers, including vinyl pre-orders, and special items, to give back to you and your donations as best as we possibly can.
We have always been a band that stayed true to ourselves, and this time is no different. We are exploring this new freedom of being a fully independent artist.
We hope you see these donations as more than transactional. We have been dancing with the idea of a Kickstarter for quite some time, and have finally decided that this is what will be best for our band, and for all of you. This feels like more of a direct, personal thank you for your love and support throughout these 20+ years of our history.
Thank you so much for everything you have done for us.
'I Feel Like I'm Becoming A Ghost' is going to be something truly special.
KICKSTARTER LINK IN BIO. PLEASE SUPPORT. PLEASE SHARE. YOUR STORY SHARES ARE IMPORTANT.
IT'S TIME TO MOVE FORWARD.
