Artistic Differences is gearing up to record our first full-length album, “Faded Sticker.”
Artistic Differences is gearing up to record our first full-length album, “Faded Sticker.” We would like to do it up professional style, with a real recording studio and whatnot, no CD-R's with scribbled black sharpie labels here. But recording an album is expensive, and we need to raise some dough to pay for studio time.
Our first thought was to sell cookies in front of the grocery store, but we got chased off by some band called “The Girl Scouts” (terrible band name, by the way, and their cookies are unimaginative (Okay, fine, the cookies are awesome, but those girls will stick you with a shiv if you're not careful (speaking of careful, how many nested parentheses do I have going here now? Gotta be careful with that punctuation too))). Anyway, we're scared of them, so we're doing this via the internet, and using our time and talents to bring you many exciting rewards for backing us on this project, not the least of which is getting many of your favorite AD songs recorded in hi fidelity for decades of listening pleasure. Thanks for your support!
So you have some idea of what you're backing, here's the list of songs we plan to record, straight off the Artistic Differences Rock Chart hanging in our practice space. If you've been to one of our shows in the last year, chances are you've heard us play a bunch of these before. None have been previously recorded by the band, and all are exceedingly awesome.
And here are pictures of a couple of the rewards offered. See the descriptions on the right for full details of all the rewards you can get for supporting us.
