UPDATE: 6/24/2012 - It happened. We're 117% Successfully Funded - BSA is recording our album at Welcome to 1979 Studio and it's because of YOU! :)
We're NOW Taking Pre-Orders On Our EP, so if you want a copy you can still pledge at the $15 level or above and be one of the first in the world to own a Blue Sky Alert original EP!! -> PRE-ORDER HERE!
UPDATE: 6/23/2012 - WOW, can you believe it?? Five days still to go and we now have 71 backers and $2,481 in pledges... that means with 5 days left, we're just $519 bucks from successfully funding our goal -- we NEED your support right now more than ever... time's running out! Whew, crazy exciting!! :D
UPDATE: 6/16/2012: OMG you guys are soooo awesome... we are 60% funded with only 12 days left to go! Wow, this is exciting! Plus another video is coming real soon (it's being uploaded now!) :D YOU GUYS ROCK!!
We're almost half way there! You guys are so amazing. Thank you!!
To show our gratitude, we've posted a new video of Blue Sky Alert LIVE at the Warehouse in Clarksville, TN... Check it out here!
Our band, Blue Sky Alert is heading to our favorite recording Studio, "Welcome to 1979" and we want to take you along for one crazy ride!
We are independent artists and that means we get to realize our creative vision to the fullest, but it also means we have to shoulder the full financial responsibility.
And that means our fans get to step into the process with us and help us create the kind of music they like, while getting crazy cool rewards!
Our financial goal is $3k in 30 days. 99% of other projects you see on here are anywhere from $15k to $30k and higher... we're confident in our ability to produce great music people of all ages will love, and if we can just get the first EP done, we're golden.
The total cost for recording, mixing and mastering our EP rounds out to about $3,000. So as long as we reach this goal before the deadline of 30 days, we've got the EP and can get it in YOUR hands right away!
Every additional dollar that goes beyond our goal of $3k is going to more studio time to record more songs, plus mixing, mastering and marketing our first independently released full album! (Note: ANY backer who donates $35 or above automatically gets the full Album once it's finished!)
Here's Some Of The Awesome Stuff You Get for Backing Us:
- Digital & Physical Copies of Our EP
- Hand-crafted Necklaces made of Hemp & My Guitar Picks
- Autographed pictures, posters and even band equipment!
- A one-of-a-kind retro authentic Vinyl record of our EP
- Exclusive, unique "larger than life" artwork from the studio walls
- Official Blue Sky Alert T-shirts, Sunglasses And More!
- A Cover of any song you want, uploaded to our Youtube Channel
- An original Song dedicated to you or whomever you want!
- A LIVE Show at your house, lifetime VIP backstage passes and way too much to list here! (see the rewards to the right!)
We want you to feel like you're a part of this recording. Because, without you, none of this would even be possible. We're counting on public support and can't wait to give you an album you'll be proud to tell your friends about!
The goal is just to cover the EP, that's four songs total. That covers recording, mixing and mastering. Once that's done, the marketing and promotion will be up to us, so every little bit helps a LOT! Every bit above and beyond the $3k goal is going to take it to the next level and record our entire Album!
Thank you for being on this adventure with us. This is a great way for us to connect with you, by offering some unique packages exclusive to our music.
We couldn't be more excited about this. We will keep you up to date here as much as we can - everything from the recording, to the artwork for the album, the ideas and everything in between as our dream begins to take shape. And of course... the music!
We'll keep you posted every step of the way.
