Ramshackle Redemption – LISTEN TODAY

EVENING OF SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 1ST, 2015: Come celebrate the release of Ramshackle Redemption Vol. 1, the new recording from the Next Church band, made possible with the love and support of the community and in celebration of our gracious loving God.

Pay what you can, suggested donation $5 to $10 sliding scale – though some of you will get in for free as a perk for donating through IndieGoGo!

Mobius (feat. Paul Butler) will be playing an opening set, followed by the Next Band playing songs from the record along with Joel Williams – the guy who brought the whole thing together with his recording/engineering skillz. Other specials guests TBA.

ramshackle redemption: a Nexty recording project

We’re working on a new album of the music of Next, and we’d love your help to get it off the ground… We’ve launched an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds. Check it out for perks and support levels if you’d like to be involved – or just spread the word by sharing the campaign via social media, etc. Pre-purchase the recording now, tickets to the release party, or sign up for high fives for life…

If you want to hear music from the band currently, we’ve got a bunch of rough tracks streaming on SoundCloud – but these new recordings are going to sound way better once they’re done!
