Our Project Has Launched!!
Today marks the first day of our epic thirty day journey here on Kickstarter to raise money for the Gravity Mission debut album Before The Spoken Word.
With your help, and the help of other generous individuals much like yourself, our band will have the funds necessary to print 1,000 beautiful copies of the final album design to distribute to listeners around the globe. This final product will include a full color CD and 12 page booklet, filled with conceptual photography and hand-written album lyrics, meticulously designed by Gravity Mission's Director of Visual Arts and Lyrics, Scott Werley.
We have made a considerable effort on our first day to get the word out to our immediate networks on Facebook, Google +, LinkedIn, Twitter and via direct emailing. However, our initial words can only travel so far. Every share through our project's shortlink (http://kck.st/H2Y7Y4) via your networks will help expand our reach to thousands of people who are also interested in reclaiming their reality through the power of music!
At this time, our voices are echoing across the lands, and we are calling out in need of our fellow cosmic brothers and sisters. Please help us to spread the word about Gravity Mission's goal. We have three sample tracks available on our SoundCloud page (http://soundcloud.com/gravity-mission), one of which is currently a free download from our website (http://www.gravitymission.com). We invite you to check them out!
Our plan is to post a new Kickstarter update every Sunday until April 24th, starting with today's post as the first of five planned updates. In the meantime, if you have any questions for us we welcome you to contact us directly at our email addresses listed below.
THANK YOU for helping Gravity Mission launch into outer space!! <3 <3 <3
