Leeches of Lore Finish Recording New LP Motel of Infinity; Kickstarter Launched

leeches of lore

Albuquerque’s favorite sons  Leeches of Lore have completed recording their new album, Motel of Infinity, with the venerable Toshi Kasai (Melvins, etc.) at the helm. A joyous occasion, to be sure. All that remains is to actually have the thing come out, and to that end, them Leeches boys have set up a Kickstarter in order to cover mastering and pressing costs for Motel of Infinity and do it right. If you’ve got a spare five or 10 grand laying around, they’ll apparently travel to wherever you are and play your house — my living room would never be the same, and neither would yours; think of the blown fuses! — but they’re also including stuff like advance downloads, their vinyl catalog and exclusive artwork as incentives.

They’ve also posted an unmastered and edited version of the song “Jeep Marmalade” as a sampler of the kind of chicanery you’d be supporting with your contribution. Word came down the PR wire and it looked a little something like this:

Leeches of Lore New Album Recorded by Toshi Kasai! Kickstarter up now!

Recently we had the pleasure to record our new album with the one and only Toshi Kasai (Melvins, Big Business, Robert Fripp, Tool, The Ventures, Foo Fighters, Willie Nelson, Helmet, Bette Midler, etc., etc.) at his Sound of Sirens studio in Los Angeles.

The mixes sound great and we don’t want to cut any corners on this album, so we need your help to finish it in the best way possible.

We are running a Kickstarter to help with costs: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/993936332/leeches-of-lores-new-album-recorded-by-toshi-kasai

We need to raise money to have it mastered for both vinyl and digital release by Golden Mastering (from Heart to Black Flag to Sonic Youth to Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, John Golden and Co. have over 40 years of mastering experience), and to have the best vinyl pressing and packaging we can get. We are also doing a limited run of cassettes.

Here’s the cost breakdown:
$1000 for the vinyl mastering
$1000 for the digital mastering
$3000 for vinyl pressing and packaging

Asking for donations has never been our thing and we have taken a DIY approach to all our recordings since the beginning, but we think this album deserves to sound the best we can make it.

To sweeten the deal, we are recording a 5 song EP of all new music that will only be available to those who pledge $25 or more.

Please check out our pledge levels for more exclusive goodies! Including: limited edition t-shirts, one of a kind album covers, a Kickstarter only live and rare compilation, our entire discography, a song written and recorded just for you, and the band playing at your house anywhere in the world!

We really appreciate all the support we’ve had throughout the earth in our almost 8 years of existence, and we want to give you the best sounding album that we can.
