Psych Army needs your help to start releasing records from The Difference Machine, deadCAT, The NEC, Soft Opening, Al Lover & more.

The Psych Army collective is an outlet for psychedelic culture in the form of recurring cult like rituals that advance underexposed psychedelic music and art. The ritual of Free Acid gives deejays, musicians and other artistic visionaries a place to create and experience an art form born out of abstract thought and the desire to communicate the unknown. Bands and artists, from psych rock to psych hip hop, have performed since its inception and will continue to do so. The ritual is free, so anyone can join the loosely organized army and create new works of art. Another ritual known as The Left Field Experiment, was created for producers, deejays, and emcees to gather and create live psychedelic hip hop and electronic music. Resident members are located in and around the Atlanta area and many play on a regular basis. 

 As our movement continues to progress, we would like to present this art form to the world through digital recordings, vinyl records, tapes, and CDs, as well as continue to build Free Acid and The Left Field Experiment with larger events and more national and international talent. 

 In order for us to to grow as a record label and artistic ritual series we must enlarge our numbers and amplify our resources. Although the Psych Army was born out of an already thriving psychedelic art scene, we are always trying to induct new members to help spread the gospel. In addition to new members (you), we also need your resources in the form of printed monetary exchange coupons, sometimes referred to as money. With these resources we will release The Difference Machine LP, the deadCAT LP, a split 7" from Soft Opening and The N.E.C., and an Al Lover 7". We will also hire a PR company to help promote the records and print t-shirts, buttons, patches, stickers, and posters to advance the cause. 

 You might be wondering, can I join the Psych Army? Or, how can I support this amazing cause? Well, lucky for you friend, you can do both. If you donate, you not only support our cause, you get rewards like records, stickers, posters, patches, buttons, mp3s, concert tickets, t-shirts, gourmet feasts, concerts in your town, visual art, and more stuff to be added as the campaign goes on. The more you give, the more you get. Also, if you would rather support with your time and effort, please contact our website for a list of opportunities. 

 Thanks in advance for your support. We cannot do this without the whole army from throughout the galaxies across the universe.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Risks and challenges for this project include finding the right PR firm to help get the word out about our record label. Finding the right distribution companies to help will be tough as well. We have enough supporters that have experience with PR and distribution that I think we will be able to make it happen somewhat quickly.
