Communist Daughter has a new EP, and a re-issue of their debut with a promotional tour in support. Help them come and rock your city!
This Fall we are releasing a NEW EP. Three original songs "Heart Attack," "Ghosts," and "Don't Remember Me," will be included alongside 3 crowd favorite cover's. "Knuckles," by the Hold Steady, Johnny & Molly's haunting rendition of "No Children," by the Mountain Goats and "Golden Slumbers," the classic from the Beatles. The EP is available for pre-sale exclusively here on Kickstarter and will be shipped to you September 19th! (The first 100 will be signed by the band!) This will be a tour-exclusive item (available as a CD at live shows ONLY) you won't be able to download it or order it until it's formal release in November...so get it HERE...NOW!
The critically acclaimed debut album "Soundtrack to the End," has been re-mixed by Brad Kern (Semisonic, Mike Doughty, Dan Wilson) and mastered by Greg Reierson (everyone!) It will be released on Vinyl (first 500 special edition 180 gram white vinyl), and as a deluxe CD (with 12 page booklet, lyrics and additional artwork). Our goal is to take this record out and show indie-music lovers far and wide what the Twin Cities have been raving about.
We're currently in the final stages of planning an ambitious Fall Tour (40+ dates) that will take us across the US and put us in front of many of our kick-ass fans who have never seen us live! As one can imagine, touring is a tremendous undertaking (we've been eating on the cheap, clipping coupons, and tightening our belts at every turn in order to make this happen). Every nickel raised in excess of our goal will go directly into a fund for Tour Support ensuring we get safely and semi-comfortably to your town. Our 3 month travels will require over $15K (gas, hotels, food, the occasional pair of cheap sunglasses) - before any of us even pay a single bill @ home (kinda scary right?) We're trying to be as creative as possible in order to make this a successful endeavor... including taking on sponsors for the tour.
Alongside these release's we'll be crafting a line of new merchandise (along with a couple "Kickstarter EXCLUSIVE" items) that you'll see posted in the Updates section. The upper level rewards will allow you to select (mix and match) the items you want!
What we're creating::
New EP,on CD (only available at live shows until late-November)
Re-Mixed, Re-Mastered, "Soundtrack to the End" on 180 gram white Vinyl, CD, and Digital Download (bonus tracks for CD & vinyl available via download card)
The money will be used to get us out there on tour, to all the fans we have, and give us the opportunity to win new fans and take us as far as the road may go. It's going to be amazing, and you WANT to be involved! See you there!
If I want to give more, but don't need the thank you gift for that amount, can I still pledge and get one of the lower level thank you gifts?
For sure, you can pledge any amount you want, and if you don't want to throw a house show, or just want to donate to the project just let us know and we will send you what you want from the lower level thank you gifts. Any and all donations help! And multiple donations! Cheers
Yep. When you put your info in to "Join" Kickstarter (don't worry they won't email you or anything unless you opt-in) that's where you can enter Anonymous, or Jane D., or whatever you like really...
