Toxic Melons - "Four Play" E.P Release!

£3,279

147

Hi!

So, I've decided to do another Kickstarter, even though the previous one nearly drove me insane!  My new E.P, "Four Play" gave me the chance to work with musicians who have changed my life in every way and I think it deserves to be released in a fitting manner, on vinyl!  

The costs of the E.P were simply overwhelming for me, but I was able to pull it off along with the help of many talented friends who really were life savers for this project.   As with the last Kickstarter, I want to have a physical product which I can then use to further my career as a musician.  

The Kickstarter shouldn't just end when the target has been met, it is about using incredible platforms such as Kickstarter to make yourself stand out in an almost impossible industry, especially for Power Pop.  

I have incredible people with me who I know will be happy to push this campaign on social media and beyond.    This E.P couldn't be more directed at Power Pop and Jellyfish fans if it tried!   It was  created with nothing but love and dedication and I hope you love it just as much :)

Risks and challenges

There are no current issues or potential problems with releasing this project. When I receive the vinyls, the copies which are to be autographed will be sent to Roger Manning and Eric Dover. Some of the Kickstarter fee will be used to pay them to mail autographed copies from where they are.

The E.P is yet to be mastered for vinyl, it can only be done if the Kickstarter is successful. I'm happy to answer any questions.
