We've got a new record, Slick Machine. We want to release it and tour the US to support it, but we need your help to make it happen.
Hi! We're Seashell Radio. That's us in the video above, singing a nice song from our first album.
We have another collection of nice songs that we've assembled into a second album, called Slick Machine. We plan to manifest this collection into a physical object in the form of a compact disc, and then bring it to America while playing rock shows.
But we need your help.
We need to get these things printed up, along with some new T-shirts and other swag. We also need to give our website an overhaul, and none of us are any good at that so we need to hire a dude/tte. And then, of course, we have to spend money on fuel to get ourselves across the nation (see where we're going, below).
We need just a little boost so we can do all of it without throwing ourselves into debt and potentially stranding ourselves somewhere in America. We love making this music, and with your help, we'll be able to bring it to the huddled masses.
So please, kindly pitch in - and, of course, enjoy the lovely rewards we've assembled for you. You're gonna love 'em, we're sure of it.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of our collective heart.
