We're at the final stages of production for our first studio release and need your help to wrap it up and get it on the shelf!
First and foremost we'd like to THANK YOU sincerely for even taking the time to follow the link in that email we sent you, that post we shared on your wall, text message you might have received, or that drunk-dial we may have made. It really means a lot to us that you have found your way to our Kickstarter page.
Before we get into the nitty-gritty of the project details, let us just quickly explain what Kickstarter is for those of you that might not be familiar with it. Kickstarter is an incentive based fundraiser that allows struggling artists to fund their creativity. However, the catch to Kickstarter is that if we do not raise the full amount of our goal, the band, or artist does NOT receive any of the funds, therefore, making the likelihood of the project's production slim-to-none. With that said, every little bit counts and we greatly appreciate it!
THE NITTY-GRITTY: The guys behind PARADE GROUNDS are finally ready to bring you their first studio recording. They have been working long and hard for the past year writing and recording the music that will make up their self-titled debut. All the music has been recorded, the artwork is designed, and now it's come down to raising this last chunk of change to wrap it up and get it out to the world. Up to this point the project has been completely self-funded, but the time has come that we humbly look to you, our friends and family, to help us put the finishing touches on what promises to be a great record.
What are the finishing touches? Funny you should ask! We'll be more than happy to tell you. The money that we raise here on Kickstarter will go to mastering the record, printing the artwork and pressing the vinyl. We've decided to go old school with this one and only press vinyls; of course, there will be a digital download available so you can put it on all your mobile devices, computers and tablets and where ever else you would like to put it, which is totally your business. But we've decided to press only vinyl because it is a special way to listen to a record. We want you to be a part of this process and the final step is taking it out of its jacket, sliding it out of its sleeve, walking over to your turn table and dropping the needle...
Last, but definitely not least, we would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you again and thank our extremely talented friends that have lent us their creative minds, their studio time and their cameras to really help us turn these songs that Jared wrote in his bedroom into something real!
