ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Welcome to our Kickstarter campaign page.
Good Saints and Langhorne Slim are really excited to share a 7” vinyl together. We’ve written and recorded the songs, but we need your help to actually press this split. In order to encourage you to back our effort, we’re offering some great rewards we think you’ll enjoy.
For those of you less familiar, Good Saints is a band and collaborative songwriting project from Eastern Kentucky based around the nucleus of Doc Feldman, James Jackson Toth (aka Wooden Wand), Jacob “The Newt” Newsome, Mark Rush, and David Chapman. The boys have spent the year playing dozens of shows, rapidly amassing a localized following in the southeast with their brand of melancholy, cosmic Americana. They recently released their first 7”, a split with Nebraska’s Kill County.
Most of you will recognize the name Langhorne Slim. Langhorne and his band, The Law (Malachi DeLorenzo, Jeff Ratner, and David Moore), have been perfecting their distinctive brand of frenzied country folk for over a decade, releasing albums on a variety of high profile labels and sharing stages with a who’s who of modern music. His contribution to the 7” is an exclusive track unavailable elsewhere, cut at the session for his upcoming album The Way We Move, which you can pre-order on vinyl or CD by clicking here.
We’re asking for your financial support because we believe in the importance of creating real musical artifacts that can last, not just easily fleeting data streamed over the internet. We need your help to pay for some of the costs associated with the manufacturing of this split. We’ve created the songs, practiced them, recorded them, and mixed them; but now we need help to cover the costs of pressing approximately 400 copies. Your contributions will help pay for the vinyl records themselves, the lacquer mastering, plating, labels, sleeves, and jackets. Also, for those of you willing to support us for $25 and above, we will be creating approximately 50 Special Limited Edition colored vinyl and cover art. At $75 and above we are offering customizable Special Limited Edition Good Saints / Langhorne Slim and The Law Split T-shirts available ONLY to Kickstarter backers. There are other great extremely rare rewards as well (see to the right of the screen and repeated down below).
We really can’t say it enough, but thank you so much for your support!
