True to the DIY ethic, our band hopes to buck the system and self-release Transmissions from the Grand Strand. You can help.
Our band, King of Prussia, has finished recording its second full-length album, Transmissions from the Grand Strand, but we need your help to give it a proper release...without a record label. The album is about things like love, death, the means of creating and maintaining Transatlantic power structures, the Tropics, graduation, gradual ascendance, love, and various otras cosas.
We started the recording process in Myrtle Beach, SC (hence "the Grand Strand") way back in August, 2009. It took us a (really, really) long time to make, but we are thrilled with the way it turned out. We hope to collect donations throughout the month of December to help us repay recording costs, master the album, press CDs, make T-shirts, buttons and stickers, self-promote our album to press and radio, and ship advance copies of the albums to fans.
The band has relocated to Chicago and we now live and practice in an old church (the band's second) which has been converted into a house. We love it here, but it's cold....damn cold. Nathan never even gets out of his robe. We need to release the album and hit the road. Head south for the winter, if you will. Will you?
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
