Hi!  We're Wheatus, a rock band from New York. You probably know us best for our song "Teenage Dirtbag" which came out in 2000 and people have really seemed to like. You might have also heard versions of Dirtbag by Dashboard Confessional, Weezer, All Time Low, Girls Aloud, 5 Seconds of Summer, Tokyo Police Club, and One Direction, who have all covered it in recent years.

What you might not know is that we're still a consistently active & fully independent band. We have no record label or management; everything we make is paid for and released directly by the band. We've recorded six studio albums to date and are currently in the process of recording album seven. We think this is our best collection of songs to date, and every dollar earned here will go directly towards getting them recorded as quickly and professionally as possible.

Wheatus Patrons will be offered tremendous access to the band in a way we have never granted before.  We will be posting previously unheard live versions and demos of songs, arranging private live-stream concerts, hosting Q&A sessions with band members, sharing behind the scenes footage of our recording sessions, and giving our patrons the very first listen to our new album when it's complete.

Your support means the world to us, and we will go above and beyond to make sure everyone who contributes gets more than their money's worth. Thank you!
