Help Us Make A New Album!!!

February 2, 2018

Hello friends. We have some big news! We’re making a new album with our long-time producer/collaborator Eric “Roscoe” Ambel. We have a fantastic batch of new songs that we’re really excited to record for you. We’re planning for a Fall 2018 release through Bloodshot Records (best record label ever!). We tried something different when recording our last album and it worked so well, we’re doing it again. Basically, instead of traveling to Eric’s studio in New York and trying to make an entire record in a single 10-day period, we’re breaking it up into several 4-day sessions at Sawhorse Studios in Saint Louis. This way we can focus more on the music instead of rushing to get it done. But doing it this way costs more versus a single recording session. So we came up with a plan to raise funds for anyone who wants to help us cover the extra costs. You’ll be the first ones to get the new album and also get some very cool limited edition stuff in exchange for your help.

Here’s the deal:

* * Deluxe Executive Producer Package * *

with CD $150 + shipping
with Vinyl $160 + shipping

SOLD OUT!

+ Pre-order of the new album. Autographed CD or Vinyl.
We’ll ship CDs and Vinyl to arrive a few days ahead of the official release date. We don’t know the exact date yet but we’re planning on sometime in the Fall of 2018.

+ Limited Edition “Executive Producer” T-shirt.
This new shirt was designed by Chris Kro and is only available as part of this fundraiser. There will be no re-prints after the sales period is over. This is a dark brown 100% soft cotton shirt. These shirts run a little bit small. So maybe order up a size?

+ Autographed Poster.
This 9.5″ x 17″ poster designed by Chris Kro and signed by the band. Printed on heavyweight uncoated recycled paper. Only available as part of this fundraiser. There will be no re-prints after the sales period is over.

+ Tote Bag.
High quality heavy canvas tote bag. Perfect size for carrying vinyl or any other stuff you wanna tote. Only available as part of this fundraiser. There will be no re-prints after the sales period is over.

+ A handwritten lyric sheet of any Bottle Rockets song of your choice.
You choose your favorite Bottle Rockets song and Brian Henneman will handwrite the lyrics for you on archival paper suitable for framing.

+ Exclusive MP3 download of a demo from the new album. 
Once your order is complete you’ll get a download link. For now, there will be a placeholder there until we have the MP3 from the band sometime in March.

+ Your name in the liner notes of the new album.
That’s right! We’ll put your name in the liner notes of our new album as an executive producer.

That’s right! We’ll put your name in the liner notes of our new album as an executive producer.

=============

The fundraiser will end on February 28.
Shirts, posters, tote bags and lyric sheets will be shipped to you at the end of March.
Demo recording will be delivered via download sometime in March.
CDs and Vinyl will be shipped separately to arrive on or before the official album release date sometime this Fall. Exact date to be determined.

Your support is greatly appreciated! We know this will be your favorite Bottle Rockets album yet.

Thank you!

Hello friends! We’re looking for people to host Bottle Rockets Living Room Shows in January. The band is headed to New Orleans for the Outlaw Country Cruise and we’re looking for a couple of places to play living room shows on the way there and on the way back. These are all acoustic shows with no stage, no sound system. Each one is limited to 45-60 tickets. Please read details below and get in touch right away if you are in or near one of these cities and can host a show.

Deadline for submissions is December 13
Tickets on sale December 20 @ 2pm

Jan 19 : Memphis TN

Jan 20 : Little Rock AR

Jan 26 – New Orleans LA

Jan 27 – Birmingham AL

Jan 28 – Nashville TN

We’ll make this as easy as possible for the hosts. All you have to do is let us borrow your living room for about 3 hours, check names off the list at the door… in return you’ll get 5 additional free tickets for friends and our eternal gratitude.

IMPORTANT!

1. Please read everything below so you know how it works.

2. email bottle-rockets@undertowshows.com this info:
– a. Your address.
– b. A few photos of your living room.
– c. Please put “Bottle Rockets Living Room Show” and the name of your city in the subject line.

3. Sit tight and we’ll get back to as soon as possible if we can book the show at your place.

Here’s how it works.

1. You have a house, loft, small gallery, studio or other intimate space where we can do a private show that can comfortably and safely host 45-60 people. There needs to be street parking, parking garage or public transportation nearby and your neighbors should be cool. It would be a huge bummer if someone called the cops because of all the extra cars and people coming to your house. You probably shouldn’t do this if you live in a small apartment with a bunch of uptight neighbors or a cranky landlord. Be realistic on how many people your place can hold. We need to know how many tickets we can sell in advance. Sorry, we can’t do these shows outside.

2. Ticket price will be $25. Everyone must buy tickets in advance. No tickets will be sold at the door. There will be no reselling or third-party tickets sales. All tickets sales are direct to fans from Undertow. Limit 4 tickets per person. These shows sell out quickly and we want everyone to have a fair opportunity to buy tickets.

3. We’ll provide the host with a list of everyone coming to the show. The host won’t have to deal with any money and will only need to check people off the list as they arrive. We ask guests to arrive between 7:00-7:45pm. The shows start at 8pm and we ask everyone to be out of your space by 10pm.

4. The host gets 5 additional free tickets for the show. If you have other friends beyond your 5 guests who want to come to the show you should direct them buy tickets on-line.

5. Your home address will not be published on the web and will only be given to people who purchase tickets.

6. The shows will promoted on our websites, Facebook and Twitter and word-of-mouth.

7. We’ll need your help to spread the word on your Facebook and Twitter too. We’ll create a Facebook event for each show and make you a host of the event so you can easily invite your friends (Thank you!). Remember, please don’t post your address. The address only goes to people after they buy tickets. We need to keep the location private so random people don’t try to show up and pay at the door.

8. You don’t need any sort of sound system. All you need is 4 armless chairs for the band to sit on and some kind of ambient lighting like a lamp on coffee table, floor lamp, or overhead lights with a dimmer to help create a cozy mood.

9. You don’t need seating for everyone. If you have a bunch of chairs, great! But most shows are floor seating and we let guests know they should bring a cushion, pillow or folding chair to sit on during the show.

10. There will be no opening acts on the living room shows.

That’s it.
THANK YOU!!!

Please join us!

Some living room shows, an opera show, a garden party, a couple festivals, and a cruise to Mexico walk into an itinerary…
Cruise to Mexico says to the garden party, “Hey, what are YOU doin’ here?”
Garden party says, “I don’t know, I just followed the Opera show.”
The festivals and the living room shows all laughed, and they quickly became the best of schedules.

More things are developing as we speak, but this is what’s on the books right now. We always say, “Share ’em if ya got ’em”, so here ya go. Hope to see some of you soon…
