Instead of Sleeping is excited to record and release their newest EP, "The Reds, The Blacks, The Grays", but needs your help!
Instead of Sleeping is independently funding their newest EP, but are in need of your help.
The truth is, after putting countless hours and resources into this band and the music we love making, we have exhausted our resources. For us to release any of our newest material, we need financial backing to help push us through the studio and touring expenses.
We do not want this request for financial assistance to be a negative indication of Instead of Sleeping's well-being as a band. In fact, we will be making large strides with this album. The EP is sounding exactly how we want it to so far, and we are in the planning and pre-production stages of one or two music videos. The only problem is the financial standings of the individual band members, who have been investing all of their time and money into Instead of Sleeping.
This is not us begging, and you don't owe us anything, but if you are as excited as we are for this new album to be played at our live shows, through your car speakers, or through your headphones, we hope that you will help us by making a contribution.
We are not opposed to traveling farther distances to play for backers who donate $150 or more, but we need to be reasonable. If you are from another state other than PA, we will be able to promise a show eventually whenever we are in that area again. We will even try and book a tour to get to your house/venue! But you need to give us some time and patience! Incidentally, we would love to play Australia, but Woody has a kangaroo phobia. Sorry, mate.
