Experimental art-punk outfit, Dérive is releasing their debut full length. Pre-order, donate, and get more info here!
Northampton, MA based experimental art punk outfit, Dérive is ready to release our first full length album. All the songs are written, a lot of them have been road tested on our two summer tours, but we need some help getting everything done.
Here's what your donations will go to:
Recording time at Project Sound in Haverhill, MA .(projectsoundrecording.com)
Mixing and mastering
Packaging, printing, and duplication.
The physical package includes a fold out poster including the lyrics/script and credits, as well as additional material to supplement the story. The CD comes in a shrink-wrapped cardboard sleeve.
The soon to be titled album is a two act musical set in a small isolated community in the midwest of America. The album tells the story of a town of self obsessed and decaying adults. Act 1 introduces a number of characters who all slowly destroy themselves and each other by way of their own vices. Act 2 focuses on one character who discovers God after a near death experience and redeems himself of his previous actions in the midst of a dying town.
After we finish up in the studio, we'll be taking some time to self record guest musicians before the tracks get sent off for mixing and mastering. Extra tracks will include strings, horns, and a number of guest vocalists.
The band is:
Paul Schmelz - Guitar, saxophone, percussion, vocals
Justin Belden - Bass, percussion, vocals
Greg Nahabedian - Keyboard, accordion, acoustic guitar, percussion, vocals
Lucy Hollier - Viola, trombone, percussion, vocals
Paul DeGrandpre - Drums, percussion, vocals

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The only foreseeable risk involved with the project lies around the availability of guest musicians after we record in the studio. However, we've already been in touch with a number of these people, and discussed potential dates to record their parts, so there should really be few issues in that regard.
