We're writing a record from start to finish in two weeks!! yep

January 11 - 26th 2015.

Join us. It's going to be a lot of fun :)

We'll be posting regular updates on our YouTube channel if you want to follow the fun and get involved.

So who are We Came As Strangers?

Ellem, Justin Sandercoe, Owen Thomas, Tim Harries

Just have a look at the fun and games we got up to on the first record in the video below!

10k Goal
So the initial goal of 10,000 will cover the basic recording & manufacturing, which include:

• Hire of the studio for 2 weeks

• Mixing / Mastering the album

• Artwork & Design

• Manufacture of the CD, Vinyl and other rewards

• Shipping of rewards

15k Goal
After the basic costs are covered it would be great to be able to polish it nicely.

• Hire of additional session musicians (strings)

• Mixing and Mastering upgrade

15k+ Goal
We'd like as many people as possible to hear our art at work, unfortunately this again comes with a price tag. So if you help get us beyond 15k we'll be able to invest in:

• Marketing and PR
• Radio plugger
• Videos // Lyric & Official Music Videos

here's a little live recording this past summer... unfortunately Tim was unable to make it down :(

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges?

Well I can't imagine what would run us into a ditch... we're on the 3rd album so we know we can do it...

So we'll be putting out our recording in May come rain or shine!

:)
