you heard that the secret hideout is the best way to support your favorite indie band under the rug. . .
so you follow the instructions to a desolate part of the arizona desert.
as the moon rises over the horizon, it illuminates a bunch of clickable secrets.
you continue forward and are approached by four oddly-familiar aliens.
one of them has a peculiar space mustache.
they speak in a language you have never heard before but for some reason understand.
“the secret hideout is the best way the band could think of to maintain working full time for free while also giving back to their fans in some way.

you can cancel or change your membership amount anytime.
at it’s core, it is a constantly evolving piece of art with access to song demos, early listens, song walkthroughs, a private discord, poems, and more. . .
The Secret Hideout is a website we designed to give you a place off of social media where you could be more connected to us.
This is our first attempt at something like this, so we ABSOLUTELY will be putting more time and resources into making it easier to use as time goes on.
Here is the most simple breakdown…
Here is a description of each page:
The Feed: This is much like a social media feed, although very duct-tape-and-paperclip. Posts are listed in chronological order, and we add new ones at an arbitrary frequency. Because our social media is SO public-facing these days, we hope to make The Hideout Feed a place where we can be a little bit more homey, less polished, and relaxed. We want to treat these posts like we’re writing to close friends, which, if you’re supporting us this way, you might as well be.
The Hideout: The Hideout is a doodle. An animated doodle that you can click on. It’s meant to be a place where we can hide little things for you to find, because it feels magical and cool to us. We will update it from time to time (don’t worry, we will email you when we make big changes) but we want fans to be able to go there, explore, see a new thing, discover it, and share it with other fans. We think that’s cool and fun and SO different from the way the rest of the internet works.
rat chat: The rat chat is a private discord server we set up so that members of the hideout can chat with other members. you’ll need to set up a discord account and download the app in order to participate. there is a lovely, kind, supportive, funny, and awesome community waiting for you should you decide to join!
Acct Info: The Acct Info page allows you to change or cancel your monthly donation at any time. If you cancel, you will lose access to the secret hideout immediately. It also gives you access to all necessary account info (billing, profile details, etc).
We want people to donate what they think is fair, which keeps this a fun, inspired project for us. If you feel that this site is only worth the minimum $5, great! If you want to donate more, and be a bigger patron of our work, wonderful! There’s no pressure. We just hope you enjoy yourself. Really (:
