Mind Fish is releasing an album early 2012. It is our first full length studio album, and we want you to be a part of it!
Back in the winter of 2011, Mind Fish began recording our first full length studio album with assistance from well respected producer, Eddie Ashworth (Sublime, Dokken, Great White, The High Strung and many more ). As August ended we found the recording process to be completed. The studio process was a fascinating experience, but the next step of our journey is what we hope to be the most amazing part!
We want to professionally master the album either in Nashville, NYC or L.A. After this process we are going to press 1,000 copies of the full length album for physical distribution. As you probably know, this isn't the cheapest step in the recording process, and will run us approximately $1,000 in total. We will be heading out on the road for about fifteen shows over the next two months (September-November) to promote the album and give out two new songs at our shows. The travels will help fund our project to a modest extent, but Kickstarter seemed like the perfect option for us. Not only is it a great forum to gain support for a project such as this, but it is also an incredible tool for us to give back to the people who have supported us for the past three years.
Basically, Ancillary costs refer to LONG distance travel due to high gas prices. We are funding to support the album because we do not have the funds to begin with and driving VERY LONG distances would further put us in the hole. If anyone has any questions regarding this, please feel free to ask.
