We need to pay for mixing, mastering and pressing a full-length album we care about.
We are a band from Madison, Wisconsin working hard to wrap up the end of a two year recording project. This is the first album we've done outside a proper studio setting which has allowed us the luxury of reworking songs as we go. After a full day at work, coming home to fit in a few hours of listening, arranging and tracking has allowed us perspective between sessions. With this dynamic, though, came a slower process and more time for our band-fund to drain.
Having fronted all other expenses out of pocket, and this being the first album we refuse to cut corners on, we're swallowing our pride and asking for help to pay for things we can't do ourselves. These are the main expenses yet to come:
Pressing vinyl: $1200
We would also like money to thank those who have generously donated time in other ways such as editing video, album art and web design.
We hope you find a reward that suits you. Purchasing an advance copy of the album may be the most popular option but we have a thousand thank yous reserved for all who donate in any way! We really can't do this without your support so if we meet our goal, the utmost love and gratitude will be poured into the packages that arrive on your doorstep. Please bear in mind that we only include shipping to states in the lower 48.
A SPECIAL THANKS goes to William Seale for digging through our April Base footage, shooting our Sh*tty Barn Session, and facilitating a Kickstarter interview. Oceans of patience, my friend.
Jentri, Phil, and Tony
