5. STRETCH GOALS! We have just under 2 weeks to continue with some stretch goals for this campaign, so here’s what we’re gonna do:

-BRAND NEW Christmas EP at $50,000. 3 newly recorded Christmas songs to be released later this year. Anyone who contributed at least $100 to the campaign (in 1 contribution or multiple contributions) will get this for FREE!

-BRAND NEW Acoustic EP at $55,000. It’s been a while since we kept it soft and light. 3 newly recorded acoustic songs to be released next spring. Anyone who contributed at least $100 to the campaign (in 1 contribution or multiple contributions) will get this for FREE!

-BRAND NEW Punk Rock EP at $60,000. If you know your House of Heroes history, you’ll know that we started as a 3-piece Punk Rock band called No Tagbacks. Well, if we hit $60K it’s time to return to our roots, and make a Punk Rock EP!!! To be released sometime in 2015.Anyone who contributed at least $100 to the campaign (in 1 contribution or multiple contributions) will get this for FREE!

God bless you guys!  Much love from HOH :)
