GOALS FOR THE COMING YEAR (June 2019 - June 2020)
1. Continue strongly with our webcomic The Touring Test, putting out 2 strips a week, throughout its second year in existence
2. Release a Touring Test physical book, featuring additional comics and long form strips not found online - COMPLETED!!!!
3. Make a choreographed dance music video for our song "Pretending To Be Angry At The One You Love For Reasons You Can't Quite Discern"
4. Make 12 "painting videos" for several songs from throughout our discography
5. Finish work on a new Legacy-style board game Eric has been designing for 3+ years and try to find a manufacturer for it
6. Consistently work on and update you all on the graphic novel we're working on, written by Eric and illustrated by Elizabeth, called "Amy"
7. Make 5 "album videos" where Elizabeth paints in real time a painting for each album, with perhaps some riff on the cover. This is for if anyone wants to listen to our album on youtube for whatever reason.
8. Make another MP (which is short for "mini-play", which means when you put a bunch of very short 1 minute-ish songs on a 7" record)
9. Make a secret album that we won't mention again
10. Make the next proper full length album based on the voting results of the polls from the previous year, which included themes about "Defiant Hope"
11. Play at least 80 shows nation-wide
As of June 2018, we're starting year 2 of our Patreon campaign. Here's what we completed with our supporters help in year 1:
-Made a single-shot music video for our song "Sexuality And My Decisions Concerning Sexuality (Both Good And Bad)" Watch it here
-Set the world record for "Fastest to Play a Concert in Each of the 50 States". We completed it in 44 days, 13 hours, and 50 minutes
-Performed over 90 shows all over the USA (in literally every state)
-Released over 40 pages of our graphic novel "Amy"
-Released over 100 Touring Test comics online
-Had people vote on what kind of album we should make next
We hope you'll be able to come along for this adventure.
Now let's make something great together.
-Eric & Elizabeth
