Pre-order "The Struggle" -- along with limited edition GL gear -- and support us in the struggle to release this ep! Album out 6/9/12!
We are here to gain support in The Struggle -- which is the title of our debut ep, set for release on June 9th!
The album is recorded and a supporting tour is booked; but, we need one final push to be able to release this record.
Music is more than dollars and cents, but unfortunately it takes money to get music out. The album is already recorded, but printing and packaging the album is very costly -- and after entering the studio as a totally independent act, our funds are dwindling. This is where Kickstarter comes in, and more importantly, you!
We come to you not for a donation, but for your pledge to our victory in the struggle! The struggle isn't just our debut ep, it is our quest to live our love of music. With your support we can release this album the right way!
We are writing music we love for people we hope to meet; and if one line, or one note, empowers, fulfills, moves, just one person -- this whole process has been a success. In order for that to happen the music has to be released.
The album is recorded, the tour is booked, and the van and trailer are ready to go -- with your pledge, your support, we can release this ep on pressed and packaged CDs ALONG WITH digital downloads of the album -- allowing us to share the music that has become our lives with the most people possible.
Whether it be by pre-ordering the album, stocking up on exclusive limited edition Glendale Lights merch, or inviting us to your town for a live show with you and your friends, you are helping us move one step closer to being able to release this album on June 9th.
Thank you for your time and your support in the struggle --
Jo, Dustin, Nate, Scott
Kickstarter is an awesome way to fund creative ideas for developers of independent creative ventures; in our case, a band without label support or any funding outside of our own pockets. Kickstarter fees are next to nothing, so the money raised is money that will 100% go towards the printing and promotion of our album -- HOWEVER, we only recieve the money if our ENTIRE goal amount is met by our date and the funds are only taken out of your account once our goal is met (not immediate, and no money is withdrawn from your account if the goal is not met) Basically, the collective support makes it possible, but you will not be charged if we do not make the goal.
We would love to come play for you! We have dates bookd for the summer, but plan to expand the tour schedule once we return, so don't hesitate to ask if we can come to your town! Where there is a will, there is a way -- and we have the will to play almost anywhere! If a location is just not possible we are flexible and can come to terms that are best for everyone. Here are the dates we have scheduled:
July 19 - Mobile, Alabama
July 20 - Baton Rouge, Louisiana
July 21 - Houston, Texas
July 22 - San Antonio, Texas
July 25 - Austin - Texas
July 26 - Dallas, Texas
July 27 - Ft. Worth, Texas
July 28 - Denton, Texas
August 1 -Shreveport, Louisiana
August 2 - Nola, Louisiana
August 3 - Pensacola, Florida
August 4 - St. Pete, Florida
We are based out of Tampa, Florida; so any state in the southeast is accessible at almost any time.
