If you know a bit about our band, you probably know that we like to stir the pot. We value that our fans have come to expect the unexpected from us. Realistically, we don't even know what to expect anymore. The one thing we do expect though is that no idea is too big or too scary to take on - and this big old idea has been impending for quite some time now.
The original dream was to create a subscription-like platform for our music where "subscribers" could enjoy the scheduled arrival of a new protest the hero tune every month, on the same day, at the same time! While we battled with the logistics of launching such a beast, Bandcamp came along and pretty much nailed it. So here we are!
We believe this to be a sustainable model for what we do and a wonderful and honest way of getting more music made for you all. We hereby decree our collective commitment to releasing a song a month for the next 6 months. Like Rody mentioned in the video, think of it as an EP spread over six months....just way friggin' better.
"How is it friggin' better?" you are undoubtedly asking yourself.
Here's the thing: we have done the full-length album and ensuing record cycle four times now. While they all had their benefits, they all dragged on. Most record cycles are at least 2 years. That's two years of promoting 40-or-so minutes of music. Music that you may have written two years before that! We have never been able to release what we want to release NOW. So that's exactly what this is. These are songs we love now, songs we are proud of now, and songs which are inherently more candid than our other material. Don't get us wrong, this is very much the pth you either know and love or know and hate. If you like what we do, we are pretty sure you are going to dig this crap. I guess we'll let these little lullabies speak for themselves...
Anywho - by subscribing to "Pacific Myth", you will get a brand new PTH song a month as well as access to all the content we've collected along the way. It will include pictures, journals, lyrics, musical transcriptions, samples of music to come and some rookie-edited videos to keep you either entertained or appalled while you wait for the next month's material.
Thanks for reading, listening and watching our careers thus far. Know that absolutely none of these projects would be possible without you. We dig ourselves further in your debt with each signup!
Important Notes About Our Subscription:
-Bandcamp allows only for "monthly" or "yearly” subscriptions, so the wording here sometimes refers to an annual subscription, rather than a 6-month subscription. We chose to run a yearly subscription since we wanted our followers to incur only a one-time payment, instead of getting charged every month. Once you sign up, you are done for the duration of the subscription! Just know that this subscription is for 6 MONTHS, not a full year. Songs will be released in Oct, Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb and March - all on the 15th of each month. After the 6th month has wrapped up, we will be discontinuing the campaign and your credit card won’t be charged again. But don't worry! Everyone who has a paid subscription will have the songs and access to the subscription-only content for the rest of time! Pretty neat eh?

A Bit About Our Tiers:
It's important to note that as you move up the tiers - you get everything quoted in the previous tier(s). Okay?
So, our primary tier - creatively referred to as "Tier 1"is a pretty delicious deal. For the low and ONE-TIME price of $12, you will receive the following instantaneous delicacies once a month, EVERY MONTH for 6 months: **That's Oct 15, Nov 15, Dec 15, Jan 15, Feb 15 and March 15**
"Tier 1" comes with:
-The Monthly Song (unlimited streaming and a variety of audio download formats to choose from)
-An exclusive instrumental mix of the song (w/ same audio options mentioned above)
-The song's dedicated hi-resolution artwork, lyrics, and liner notes.
"Tier 2" is the $25 show stopper. In addition to everything listed in Tier 1, you get unlimited streaming access to our Doc Series called "Of Our Own Volition". Each episode will go up at the same time as the songs each month.
We’ll email you a code to get exclusive access to these high resolution videos through a cool company called VHX, which is geared toward indie filmmakers.
This Tier will put over two hours of brilliantly edited footage at your fingertips when all is said and done. Each episode will be approximately 20 minutes in length and will cover, in unreasonable detail, the entire process that was the making of our album Volition. The series starts with an intimate and embarrassing history lesson on pth and how we came to write, record, and release Volition. We can say with furious honesty, that this is the behind the scenes look at our band we have never given. And we feel we had the right guy to do it in Marc Ricciardelli.
