This record sounds awesome. Their Kickstarter campaign hopefully will succeed. $1,600 hardly seems like a longshot, but who knows. 1 month to raise another $1400+.

Hopefully this album will give me a little more than what the latest Long Distance Calling and some other instrumental records have thus far (although the new LDC isn't bad, and better than the previous one).

The video indicates a Summer release.

It is difficult to write songs in 2013. Lots of songs have been written, and yet people expect you to write new ones. Against all odds, we did just that. And then we recorded those songs on our dime. Now the only challenge left to overcome is the financing of the CD's and the Merchandise to support this album. We need your help!
About us:

Shelter Red has been striking terror in Portland, Oregon since 2003. With a sound being described as quite technical and completely original. 2009's "Strike a mortal Terror" was the follow up to 2007’s mind-blowing debut release, “Masters of the Universe,” and "SAMT" was the 2nd release on Sound VS. Silence Records. Shelter Red doesn’t look to fit into any genre or style and doesn’t plan on conforming to any of the masses. While most instrumental albums usually seem to have a bit of a lull in them, SR seems to avoid that pitfall and actually relish in the fact that they don’t need voices to make phenomenal music. They have built a fan base from the ground up, which started in Portland and has worked its way nation wide, through talent, touring, and an astonishing live show. For fans of Don Caballero, ISIS, Tristeza, and Botch.
