You knew this would happen – Bloodshot has generally been praised by all that have heard it (including us), so it was only a matter of time before they caved to the demand for vinyl. From the Kickstarter project: “It is 2019 and we carry on…as always with your involvement. You’ve kept us moving and shaking for decades and fed our souls. It was with your support that we created Bloodshot in which we are very proud. Many folks have reached out to us expressing that they’d like to see Bloodshot set to VINYL. We’d like that too. We hope experiencing Bloodshot on VINYL will be a marvelous moving experience. We also feel it is a fitting gesture in honoring Tim Chandler as it was the last project he played on.
Creatively we will master the audio specifically for VINYL and package it in a specially designed gate-fold jacket with added lyric sheet insert.
But this campaign isn’t just about issuing an album on the vinyl format. It’s our way of working together with you to continue to stay in the game. The goal budget will cover the cost of production, manufacturing and paying fees for mastering, design etc. Anything beyond this goal really help to keep us going personally and professionally as well as help us do more marketing and promotions to find old fans that might not know we’re still going strong as well as win the hearts of new fans.”
