After four years, three EPs and several DIY tours, American Standards is turning to our awesome friends, fans and family to help fund our next big adventure.
The Plan.Travel 400+ Miles to Los Angeles, California to record a 4 - 5 song EP. The EP will be the first time we've pressed in three formats including CD, vinyl and cassette. There will also be multiple full production music videos for the songs. Upon release, we've planned touring across the US to support the new EP. Along with this, we'll be releasing a whole new slew of merch designs including t-shirts, pins, stickers, guitar picks and beer koozies.
The Goal. Unfortunately, it costs money to follow your dreams and we in fact were unable to pay for it on our good looks alone (although we've tried). The band will be self-funding much of the expense but raising this remaining $1,750 through KickStarter will make this dream become a reality. Anything raised in addition to the goal will be put towards purchasing a tour van/trailer so we can stop traveling with mom's minivan.
GET INVOLVED. We've created a ridiculous amount of prizes at various pledge amounts for you to show your support. Several of these prizes are very unique, individualized and in limited quantities. Please donate what you can and encourage your friends and family to do the same by sharing on your Facebook and twitter.
Success. If successful in raising $1,750 through KickStarter, American Standards will be able to release the EP, new merch and start touring as soon as April 2014.
Donate today and please share with your friends/family.
