Who Are We?
We are a ska/punk/rock/party band from Orange County, CA, formed over drinks about 9 years ago. Over time we've honed our sound into a special blend of music that has been described as "sloppy, but in a good way".
What Are We Doing?
We're used to doing pretty much everything ourselves, but we decided it's finally time for a professionally recorded album, so we turned to our friend David Irish at Pot O'Gold Studio for help producing something that sounds great. He was able to help us sound better than ever, and we're really excited to share it with our friends.
When Is This Happening?
After we wrap up this (hopefully) successful kickstarter, we plan to immediately manufacture CDs and set up digital distribution for the album. Our recordings are already mixed and mastered, and we're just about done with the artwork (a preview of the cover is up here already!). We should have everything in hand to distribute by April, and a party to celebrate the release is in the works.
What Does This Cost?
Our rough budget for this project:
Artwork: $0 (We're doing it ourselves)
Band funds/individual contributions: -$2100
Kickstarter Fees: $100
Initial Fundraising Goal: $1000
If you are awesome and we end up raising more (especially if we recoup our initial costs), we have some fantastic stretch goals in mind (Vinyl! A van! Touring!), and we'll lay out the budget for that when that seems reasonable.
Risks and challenges
We have already recorded, mixed and mastered the music and created most of the album artwork ourselves, and now we're looking for help releasing it. We're going to scale our manufacturing of physical copies based on how much money we raise, so this album is coming out whether you like it or not!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
