Help us make our new album! We believe in this music, and we couldn't have come this far without all of you.
Help us fund and promote our new (and first full-length!) album! We’re a completely DIY, as-yet-unsigned band that’s been together since 2009. This means we book, promote, manage, write, produce, release and fund everything that we do ourselves. It’s hard work but we believe in this music, and we couldn't have come this far and accomplished what we have without all of you.
In order for us to take this next big step, we’re asking for some much-needed help. Recording, mixing, and promoting an album is a surprisingly expensive process that is often out of reach for independent artists. Anything you can give will help. We promise to make it worth your while- we’re going to promote the hell out of this thing, and we’re really hoping to open some new and exciting doors, and take this train as far as possible!
That's us begging. Here's us giving: we’ve put a lot of thought into giving you some really awesome rewards in return for helping us out. These are so much more than donations! There are all sorts of cool things that you can only get by pledging through this Kickstarter project - private concerts, album pre-releases, music lessons, pastries (did someone say bacon chocolate chip cookies?!), art prints and even some handcrafted beer for those lushes out there - truly a cornucopia of gratitude, from us to you.
THANK YOU in advance. Even if you don't pledge anything, if you could share this with everyone you know, through facebook, e-mail, etc, that will make a huge difference. Here are all the juicy details:
We're recording at Decibelle Studios in San Francisco's Noe Valley and are working with top mixing and mastering engineers to make this album sound full, lush, and rockin’.
We've already been in contact with a PR firm whose current touring clients include:
The Avett Brothers
Birds & Batteries
The true cost of this project is about $10,000. Our Kickstarter goal is a (slightly) more modest $3,000, and if you help us reach that, we'll be thrilled.
Send us a message if you have any questions, and thank you from the very bottom of our hearts.
