I just saw the most humbling thing I have seen in eight long years. You, our fans, paid for us to make a new album through your pledges in less than 55 minutes. Honestly, I had hoped we might make it- if anything in six weeks or so. All I and we as a group can say is – THANK YOU. Thank you for believing in us. As you continue to make pledges, I guess we will continue to add items to pledge for, as we are very serious about playing shows and the possibility of touring- and your pledges will make this possible. Thank you so much, and thank you for showing us that HOPE STILL FLIES.
