THE LONG DIVISION

3RDegree's first new studio album in over 3 years will be officially released in September so why are we telling you now?

Well, have you heard of the "crowd funding" sites Kickstarter.com, RocketHub.com and others like it? On those sites, you "crowd fund" a project-usually at the beginning of the writing or recording process-in exchange for unique prizes (house concert, unreleased demos, merch) later on down the road.

Cool idea, but we're finishing our album as we write this, so we intend to use whatever funds we can raise and put it toward the manufacturing of the CD, album cover and promotion. Your donation (open from now until May 30th) via Paypal (or other method-email us for options) will get the album in your hands by late June! In the summer, press outlets will be getting their reviews of the CD ready and we will be getting our live show and a music video ready for the September official release date. Please come to www.3RDegreeONLINE.com and see what we've come up with. Believe it or not, one donation level allows you a speaking part on this album!

To further illustrate what we're doing here, watch this video. We hope you find it very entertaining!

What can we tell you about the album? Well, like Narrow-Caster (our last album from 2008) it will be in an "eco-wallet" which uses no plastic and ships cheaply. It is 10 songs long with over 50 minutes of music. It also has 3 songs longer in length than any we've recorded! While it's not a "concept album", it would be fair to call it a "thematic album". And while not every song fits the mold, roughly half will hit you as being very timely this election year. No, we're not taking sides here, but there's lots to say about divisions-red/blue, black/white, rich/poor, on and on it goes.

SONG TITLES (order subject to change):

THE LONG DIVISION

1. The Socio-Economic Petri Dish

i. Prelude To A Bailout (instrumental)

ii. Give Them What They Want

2. You're Fooling Yourself

3. Exit Strategy

4. Incoherent Ramblings (of a talking head)

5. Televised

6. A Nihilist's Love Song

7. The Millions Of Last Moments (instrumental)

8. The Ones To Follow

9. Memetic Pandemic

10. A Work Of Art
