Help Idiot Stare press their next album to CD. Over 40 minutes of intense industrial rock that you're going to want to own!
Idiot Stare's next album, Unknown to Millions is done and we really want you to hear it at its best, so we've set up this Kickstarter project. If we reach our funding goal we'll press this thing to CD, at least 300 of them as real replicated CDs with color artwork and everything.
We're offering lots of cool stuff for rewards, check them all out over there on the right --->
If you don't find what you want, let us know and we'll try to make it available. We're flexible, we just want some of your $$.
About the album: This is our best work ever. STG was nice. Insight 23 was nice. Heck, even Blinded was nice. But. This is our best work. Ever. We took our time tracking the album and it shows. The live drums took months, the vocals took months. The guitars like 5 minutes cause Bruce is like that. But the tracks are perfect. We're really proud of our work.
In the past we've had maybe some sonic issues with our mixes, so for this album we got professionals to mix our songs. Seibold from Hate Dept mixed some tracks. prophei from Annondalleb mixed some tracks. Magic Moreno who has produced some serious player's albums mixed a bunch of tracks. Dan Levey of REwire mastered it all. It sounds great. It'll sound really great on CD! You want one!
About the CD: The plan is to do a full color eco-friendly multi-panel sleeve with a full color book. How many pages depends largely on how much funding comes in. More $$ = more pages!

Enough already! How do I help!? Easy, just click the "back this project" button up there on the top right. You'll then go through Amazon.com's checkout process. So it's just like buying something from Amazon, but now it sounds better. You won't be charged until after the Kickstarter closes, but it's important to finish the Amazon check process now. More info about pledging here.
After you pledge, we'll keep you posted on the CD's progress as it comes together. You'll get to see the artwork as it's being completed and sent to press. If we reach our fund goal early, we might even send some download links out. Sneaky!
Thanks for checking out our Kickstarter and thanks for your support!
