Kickstarter Covers Album!

FINALLY! You can now download the kickstarter covers we recorded! If you don’t know about it, we did a crazy kickstarter in July of 2012. One of the high-pledge options was for folks to choose a song for us to cover. A huge variety of songs got picked by people from all over, and we went into the studio in December to record them. We had 15 songs we needed to cover and learned, reworked, recorded and mixed them in a sleepy whiskey-fueled 13 days. Some were silly songs, some classics. It was a riot to learn and record them. As of now there are no plans to release them on any format other than digital and our bandcamp site is the only place you can get ’em. Now that we have secured the rights, you can download these tracks at http://www.murderbydeath.bandcamp.com . If you donated to the kickstarter a free download code is below (with an option to donate if you are feeling nice!). If you were one of the folks who pledged we are working on the artwork for your one of a kind CD of the track! We will send em out end of this month. Hope you all enjoy!
