About this project

My name is Matt Wilson, and I sing for a band called Set Your Goals. A couple years ago, we regained the pressing rights to our demo recording from Eulogy Recordings, who had maintained exclusive pressing rights for 7 years, beginning when we signed with them back in 2005. I saw this as an opportunity to put money back into the band instead of another label's pockets.

I've always wanted to start a record label, and this was the little "push" I needed to get me going. 2014 marks the 10 year anniversary of our demo's release and our band's career. As a vinyl enthusiast, I thought it only natural to make some really cool vinyl for the occasion, and try my best to get it out in time for Record Store Day 2014. In order to do this, there are some very strict deadlines I must meet (pressing vinyl takes a long time!), which is why this Kickstarter project is only about 2 weeks long. 

The only problem is, even by maxing out all of my credit cards, I still need help to pay for everything up front. Your pledges will not only help fund this release, but they will help the band out, as I am putting all proceeds from this first release back into Set Your Goals. This is a chance for you to be a part of our label's first release, support the band, and have a very special and unique piece of vinyl to show for it.

Risks and challenges

Timing is my biggest challenge with this release, which is why I've set the kickstarter for 2 weeks. I've set a goal for myself (hehe sorry, I couldn't resist!) to get it out in time for Record Store Day (April 19th) in order to help record stores in the process. I've set the delivery month for May to be safe, because all of these orders will be shipped directly to you from my house, and I will need to allow ample time to package and ship them all. If I meet my goal, I am aiming to ship these out in April.

If I don't meet my funding goal, I will take out a personal loan and still release the record, but it may delay the release date. I understand that pressing vinyl is a time-consuming process, and that delays can occur at the plant. For this reason beyond my control, I cannot guarantee a RSD 2014 release date, but I am committed to getting this record out one way or another regardless.
