10,000 Manaics are attempting something we've never done before. This spring we will record an entire album of Traditional Folk Songs from the British Isles, titled Twice Told Tales. And we're doing it with our old friend and original Maniac, John Lombardo.

Go to this link WWW.PLEDGEMUSIC.COM/PROJECTS/TWICETOLDTALES  and you can become our collaborators, our executive producers. By making a pledge you get exclusive access to a seat at the table where you can listen, observe, comment and interact with the band and our online pledgemusic community as we recreate the music that inspired us and became an essential component of what became the 10,000 Maniacs sound. Along the way we'll provide exclusive songs, videos and cool fun promotional products that only you and fellow pledgers will have access to. You'll see and hear us in our Jamestown rehearsal space, recording basic tracks at Tarbox Road Studios, doing vocal and instrumental overdubs with Producer Armand Petri and generally goofing around. And you'll be the first to receive the new album, TWICE TOLD TALES. The album you helped us create.

We hope you'll join 10,000 Maniacs on Pledgemusic, and spread the word to all your friends on all things social media. In addition to helping us bring great music to listeners around the world you can help us fund the Robert N. Buck Memorial Scholarship. 10% of all the money raised over and above our goal will be donated to a college scholarship fund designed to help a local Jamestown area high school student attend college to study music. You can learn more about the Scholarship at

PLEDGE YOUR HEART, YOUR TREASURES. GET A SEAT AT THE TABLE! See you this summer! Love, 10,000 Maniacs Mary, Dennis, Steven, John, Jerome and Jeffrey.
