Early Summer, SIR will be releasing two EP's. The funding of this project will determine if they get professional pressings or cdr's
SIR is more or less the result of my distrust of other musicians. I started an industrial project in 2006 which turned into a metal band. The vocalist and I still wanted to pursue Industrial music so Unit13 was born. He slowly pulled away so I teamed up with another artist and Project 237 arose from the ashes. However, P237 burned just as fast, so we both went for solo projects. Self Implied Restrictions was created simply so these songs could see the light of day.
Over the years I have amassed a large number of instrumental tracks which only recently have been fitted with lyrics. I have decided that these songs would be best released as two separate EP's simply for the preservation of their stories.
The two EP's will be:
Lovers & Lunatics
Letters from the Lost
Each of these EP's will feature 6-8 songs each, all of which were written by myself with a few influences from the former vocalist for Unit13 or the other half of P237.
If this project gets fully funded, these two EP's will get a professional pressing and mastering. If funding exceeds the $1000 mark, extras will be thrown in to the pressings. I am looking to make NO MONEY off of these two EP's. Every cent that comes in will be pushed into their production and pressing. I'm not in music to make money, I'm here for the art and the process of turning out an awesome product!
New to Kickstarter?
No worries -- it's easy. Here's the official explanation from Kickstarter or we'll just let you know how it works here:
- PLEDGE -- for a limited time, make a pledge toward the release of these albums. Take a look at the far upper right corner of this page -- that's how many days we have left to accept pledges. Click the green button that says, 'Back This Project.'
- HOW MUCH? -- that's up to you. Any amount over $10 gets you both albums. The more you pledge, the more rewards (t-shirts, lyric sheets, DVD, etc) plus you'll be helping us make better music.
- YOUR CARD ISN'T CHARGED -- when you pledge, your credit card isn't charged. You'll make your pledge (via the green 'Back This Project' button above) through Amazon payments; you'll be authorizing a payment for your pledge and your card isn't charged.
- YOUR CARD IS CHARGED ONLY IF WE REACH OUR GOAL -- if we reach our fundraising goal by the deadline (also listed in the top right corner), then your card is charged. If we don't reach our goal by this deadline, your card is not charged and your pledge is discarded, and we can't release these albums.
EP COVER ART:
NOOOOOOOOO!! I mean, you are more than welcomed to just give me money any time you want but to actually help with getting these CD's pressed up it HAS TO GO THROUGH THIS PAGE!
The project deadline is April 7th so you will be charged on or soon after April 7th.
Right now the planned date is July 2012. This allows time for the albums and shirts to be printed up as I can't order them until after this project ends (April 7th)
You mean other than me crying myself to sleep for at least a week?!
If the project fails to raise the goal amount, you will not be charged. I will receive nothing and the project will be dropped for the time being.
