MIYHI is headed into the studio to work with producer Mark Lewis and needs help from the fans to fund the initial recording costs!!
We are Maybe If You Hit It (An Independent, Orlando Based, Party-Rock Band) and we are about to head into the studio with Producer Mark Lewis at Audio Hammer Studios to record a what we hope to be a full-length album. What we mean by that is that recording is expensive, especially when you are recording with a producer of this caliber. We are asking for help with the start up costs of this project, which is estimated to be around $1,500. The scope of this project depends on you (our fans and supporters)! The more money we receive in pledged donations, the more songs we will be able to record! Mark Lewis has a very impressive resume which includes bands such as The Black Dahlia Murder, Bury Your Dead, Trivium, Chimaira, Demon Hunter, Devil Driver, All That Remains, God Forbid, Six Feet Under, Unearth, and Whitechapel, to name a few. You might ask yourself, "Why does a band like MIYHI want to work with a producer that has done nothing but awesome metal albums?" The answer is simple, we believe after talking with Mark many times, over many beers, that he is the guy that can bring a giant sound to MIYHI. He has a great understanding of where we want to go musically and loves doing rock music as well. Also, because he has done heavier music he can help give us a little heavier of an edge, or as Mark said; "You guys are all c**k and no balls, I can give you the balls!" Audio Hammer Studios is an amazing facility and we expect a great product! The finished recordings will also be used as a demo, that through Mark's management, will be shopped to major and indie record labels. So help us KICKSTART this Project!!!
Thanks for the Support!!! - MIYHI
Short Explanation and How to Pledge -
Like we've said before our minimum goal for this is $1,500. We have 25 days to do it! When you pledge you will ONLY be charged if and when we have met our minimum goal of $1,500 at the end of the 25 day period. If we do not reach our minimum goal, then we do not receive any of the money you have pledged and you will not be charged... Lets say you guys go crazy and we reach our goal in 5 days... That means we have 20 days to keep it going, it doesn't stop there! Like we said in the video the more money you guys pledge the more songs we can and will record!!! So let's aim to beat our $1,500 goal. Keep it going!
Now, to make a pledge, select one of the pledge levels on the right side of the screen, that will take you to a screen where you can either type in any amount (if you just want to donate and are not interested in any of the pledge levels) or you can select one of the packages by clicking the appropriate button for the pledge level you wish to have! Its that simple! Don't forget, YOU WILL NOT BE CHARGED UNTIL THE 25 DAY PERIOD IS OVER AND ONLY IF WE HAVE REACHED OUR MINIMUM GOAL OF $1,500!

The only way you will get charged is if we meet our goal of $1,500 at the end of the time limit, which is slated for July 15th at 7:19p.m. If we don't meet our goal, you guys won't get your prizes and no one's cards will get charged. We can go over our goal, (would be awesome) just not under it.
