Dick Jr. and the Volunteers are back at it again!

Fans of Richard Speight, Jr. have been waiting with bated breath for more updates on the progress of his forthcoming album. News has been a bit quiet outside of Jason Manns’ two project update emails for Kickstarter supporters and a photo Manns shared from Speight’s first day in the studio.

In pure Speight fashion — because he is well aware of how very excited his fans are — he has shared not just one but a handful of updates this week on Instagram, as he has seemingly reconvened with the “Volunteers” in the studio once more!

After years of encouragement (see also: begging) from friends and fans alike, Speight’s debut album is finally becoming a reality. If the results of the album’s Kickstarter are anything to go by — it raised over $36,000 with 407 backers! — everyone is incredibly excited to hear what magic Speight, Manns, and co. will come up with in the recording studio.

Stay tuned for more updates!
