Daniel has been bit by a zombie. Please help us raise money for the cure, recording our full length album and summer tour!
We are Nashville based indie folk band Paper Lantern. We've been playing around Nashville and surrounding areas since June of 2011 and are about to embark on a two month long summer tour. Before we leave we are going into the studio to record our first full length album. The record is going to have 13 tracks and our plan is to press it on vinyl. There will also be two special bonus tracks that we ideally would like to press on a 7".
We've had a few setbacks in this process. The first being the most obvious - the Zombie Apocalypse. As I'm sure you are aware, this has made everything generally more difficult. The worst part is, Daniel has been bit by a Zombie. We've managed to tame him a bit, and since zombies respond well to music he can at least still manage to play his instruments, but it's been hard.
We also recently damaged our upright bass and getting it fixed was another unexpected expense.
Finally, recording an album and then touring for two months is not cheap and this band is comprised of minimum wage earners who struggle just to make rent.
With your help, all our dreams are possible. It's going to take at least $5000 to record and press our album and then go on tour this summer. Ideally, we would like to raise more than that, but 5k is the minimum we need to make this possible. With twice that we could create merchandise, press the record on cds, and pay for marketing and PR for our tour. And if we make more than that the possibilities are endless.
Please donate whatever you can. Every dollar helps. We want to make this record for you. We want to tour so that we can come to you! Everything we do is for you because we love you.
Plus you'll get more than just a good feeling for helping us out. We have a series of rewards set up for you that vary depending on the amount you give. --->
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and to watch our video. You make our music possible. The fate of our tour, our record, and the world is up to you.
