Having sold over 10,000 units of their EP “Love On The Outside” Jeremy, Justin, and Jordan of Willet are ready to return to the studio with producer Aaron Gillespie (Underoath, The Almost).

Willet has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund their debut full-length album, featuring on drums and once again to be produced by Aaron Gillespie, and engineered by Allen Salmon (Mute Math, Building 429, Sanctus Real).

Aiming for the goal of raising $25,000 to release the album independently, Willet is looking for the support of their fans, friends, and family to enable them to get back into the studio in Nashville by November 2012. The fund raising campaign ends October 30, 2012.

Within the first two days of its launch the Kickstarter campaign has already raised over $6,000. Willet is also offering a variety of pledge incentives for their backers whether supporters want to donate $1 or $100. Each pledger will automatically be entered into a drawing to win a Walden Acoustic Guitar autographed by the band and Aaron Gillespie.

Being a native of Carroll County, like these guys, and seeing the influence of Christian music on my sons and other youth, I am pleased to offer my support. Their music is what this world needs. It is loud, it is true, and it is bold.” – Daniel Wheeler, Kickstarter pledger

Willet will be hitting the road as part of the Music With A Mission Tour with Family Force 5, Disciple, Icon For Hire and many more this fall. The tour is also sponsored by the Willet brothers’ non-profit organization The Hunger Strike. See Willet perform in a city near you.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
