Earlier this year we told you about Northern Kentucky Roots band The Kentucky Struts' creative new album project, The Year of the Horse, which has gradually been released since January, with the band putting out one song a month online. As if that wasn't unique enough, the horse-themed album (with some proceeds being donated to a horse rescue organization) also includes another cool feature — each song has a corresponding piece of visual art, commissioned by the group. The Struts' intention was to release the album after 12 months of delivering single tracks and the release date is fast approaching — the Struts host a release party Dec. 17 at the Southgate House with support from The Sundresses. The Kentucky Struts are currently working to release Year of the Horse on vinyl, but it ain't cheap and they could use your help. The band has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds and are offering various perks (including some of the original artwork) for those who donate. Check out the video commercial for the project below.

The various offers for different pledge amounts (and more on the project) can be found here (or use the portal below). Click here to download October's song, "Mercury," and get a look at the photographic artwork acclaimed Nashville singer/songwriter/photographer Joshua Black Wilkins created to accompany it. 

The Kickstarter pledge drive ends Nov. 30.
