The album is done. Release date is set. Promotion ain't cheap.
Last year the five of us sat down and decided that we could no longer wait for the industry to come to us. After touring relentlessly for years and with the investment of some good friends (now business partners) we were able to fully finance the recording of our new album Falling Objects. Against our better judgment, we spent months in talks with Major and Indie labels shopping the record, but all that did was cement our belief in the DIY approach (label deals these days give them all the decision-making power and revenue, leaving you with an album that may never see the light of day). That did not sit well with us, so instead of joining them we decided to compete with them. These experiences gave us the push we needed to begin the process of starting our own label and releasing the album on that label.
We formed Flying Eye Records early this year, and soon after the new album and label were picked up for distribution by RED, a division of SONY Music Entertainment. Newly empowered, and now fully in charge of our own destiny, we will release Falling Objects internationally on September 28th 2010. Not bad for an Indie band from Virginia Beach, right? So, being as new as we are to the label game, we are finding bits and pieces of our project that are still missing that would lead to us meeting our goals. Basically a label needs to have Distribution/Publicity/Marketing/Radio to put out a CD. As of right now we have recorded, mixed, and mastered our CD. We have major label distribution. We have online publicity and marketing. Where we are lacking is tour support and radio promotion. We are so close to achieving our goal but need an extra push from our friends, fans, and family to get to the big game.
Help us reach our goal of $10,000 over the next few weeks, and in return we will give you some sweet personalized gear and services to commemorate your contribution to the effort! Tell your friends, because the more people we get involved, the more likely it is that we will will reach
