Be a part of the long-anticipated 2nd album project by trop-rockers Young Rebel Goombas.
**Notice! Scroll down to download 3 free tunes! AND we've added even more awesome rewards than what we talk about in the video above! Be sure to read everything in the right-hand column!**
Young Rebel Goombas, high energy trop-rockers, are gearing up to record the much-anticipated followup album to their 2007 self-titled debut! Several of the new songs have been audience tested and enthusiastically approved. Some of the new material has been closely guarded and is guaranteed to raise a smile.
The plan is to have the new album available by November, 2012 - just in time for the Meeting of the Minds festival in Key West. Help is needed!
The Goombas need to raise the funds to make the album possible - and have decided to do it as a PRE-SALE (of sorts)... with additional benefits.
Autographed stuff! Personal concerts - in your own living room! What could be better than that?
$25k must be raised to pay for the recording sessions, mixing and mastering, package development, manufacturing and promotion.
Keep in mind: If we do not reach the goal by the cut-off date every pledge is dropped. Nobody's cards will be charged, the Goombas will get no funding, and the album will not be recorded. Don't let that happen!
Be a part of Goomba history! Make a pledge (see pledge levels and rewards to the right of this screen) and spread the word!
