The songs have been written, the tracks have been chosen, and the producer is ready to roll. All we need is $2,000 to print the thing!
Hello, everyone, and welcome to The Reflectacles’ Kickstarter project.
As some of you may know, we’ve been traveling for the last several months spreading our debut release (The Wiley Post E.P.) across America. Thanks to Rock-and-Roll fans everywhere, we were able to keep our gas tank filled and make it home to L.A. Perhaps more importantly, being on the road with you all sharpened our musical chops, and of course, inspired tons of new material. Now we’re finally ready to begin our much-awaited full-length record.
The album will consist of ten to twelve tracks, ranging from rootsy crowd favorites like “My Soul” and “900 Miles” to brand-spanking-new songs like the psychy death-epic “Feels Like Rain” and “Phaedo,” an adaptation of the like-named Plato dialogue.
We sincerely appreciate all the help and support you’ve given us thus far. We truly, truly would not be anywhere if it weren’t for our fans. Thanks to you, we feel that we’ve finally discovered our “sound,” and we’re terribly excited to share it with you.
However, recording is an extremely slow (and therefore extremely expensive) process. We’re putting everything we’ve got into this record, and we’ll be left with barely enough to get back out on the road and bring it to you. It costs about a buck a piece to print CDs, and $100 per song to have it mastered. That’s where we need your help.
We know the economy sucks and everyone is broke. But traditionally, it’s the hardest times that have produced the greatest music, so please help fund our first thousand copies, any way you can.
Logan, Lincoln, Gerry, Chris, Devin and Anthony
