Typhoon is an 11 Member Band from Portland, OR going on tour in the fall, but...

...they need a new van to get to your city!

***UPDATE #6***WE MADE IT!

Thank you all so so so very much for helping us make this happen. You have no idea how grateful we are. Thank you thank you thank you!!

We are setting a stretch goal of $65,000, and if it is made, EVERY backer will receive a digital "remix pack" of songs from White Lighter. The remix pack will include 5 songs, each remixed by a different member of Typhoon.
As previously detailed we are paying for the conversion to a passenger van out of pocket so any additional help would help us reduce those costs.
We seriously cannot express how excited and thankful we are for this!


***UPDATE #5***

Only $6,000 left to go! Watch the interview with Dave and Camille in the update section to find out what rewards are left. Thanks so much to everyone who has helped so far!

We have been touring for almost a decade in a series of ramshackle, unsafe, uncomfortable, and totally unreliable vans. The business of traveling with 12 people (we have an audio engineer that travels with us as well) and everyone's musical equipment is a logistical nightmare in itself.

How have we managed to travel over 50,000 miles to perform over 200 shows, in 20 states in such destitute conditions? Because we had to.

No obstacle has been too great for us to overcome.

We've welded new roof supports so the roof didn't cave in on our old 1985 Dodge Ram Van, Sigourney.

We've done countless repairs, including working to the last minute on nearly every tour we have embarked on. We have seen more than our share of highway shoulders and auto parts supplies stores across the nation and have done the majority of the work ourselves or with help from our friends and family.

With so many mouths to feed we've always come up under budget to fund a new touring vehicle. Now that we have a national tour on the horizon for our new album "White Lighter", it's time for us to get a new van that can get us to your town promptly, and safely.

In order to go on this fall tour, we would like to purchase a new 15 passenger Sprinter Van. Why do you need $60,000 for a new van you ask? Here a few figures to help explain:

First, after 5% kickstarter fees and 3-5% in processing fees the $60,000 drops down down to around $55,000 received.

Secondly, shipping for each reward is built into the pledge ($4-20) per rewarded pledge, and each reward has its own costs of goods (production costs for each item ranges from $3-15). Depending on the scenario (how many backers choose rewards, and what they choose) the net earned from the campaign drops down to appx: $40-45k.

The cost of the type of new Sprinter van we will be getting, before modification, is approximately $45,000. More information can be found below, in the FAQ section.

Sprinters are very well regarded as one of the top long distance transportation vehicles. This is what we believe makes a Sprinter the ideal van for us. 

- They are safe (with modern safety features this a huge upgrade over our 1985 Dodge Ram Van)

- They are efficient (appx 5+ MPG better than a standard 15 passenger van)

- They are more spacious (which is handy when traveling as a 12 member group for months on end)

Getting a new touring vehicle will make it more economically feasible and environmentally responsible for us to tour more often, and further from the our home in the Pacific Northwest. By touring more often it gives many of our fans in the far reaches of the continental U.S. and Canada an opportunity to experience our live performance in their home town.

Please help make this tour, and further tours possible!

Rewards

We are releasing a new album on August 20th, 2013: "White Lighter" coming out on Roll Call Records, and are touring in the fall to share it live.

This Kickstarter campaign is the ONLY way to pre-order "White Lighter", and all rewards (with a pledge of $20 or more) include a pre-order of "White Lighter". It should be noted that all of the rewards that include a vinyl option will also come with a digital download code, and will be shipped in August 2013.

In addition, there are a number of prizes that correspond directly with the new van or with the tour (late night dinghy rides on the Hudson!, personal video postcards!). Also, each member of our band is offering a special personalized prize -- a day spent doing what he or she does best. Take a long distance bike ride with Alex; go fishing with Dave; hit the town and see a local concert with Devin; get a tarot reading from Shannon. There's also prints designed by Toby, posters designed by our friend and intern Skylar. A custom recorded cover song, and much more!

Risks and challenges

We want to buy a Sprinter 15 passenger van to fulfill tour dates that are already booked. If we can't find one in Portland (and they can be hard to come by) we'll find one somewhere else and go get it. If this turns out to be a challenge, we will rise to it.

Regarding the fulfillment of rewards, as of the beginning of this project we are currently receiving our physical merchandise (CDs, LPs, posters, t-shirts, etc.) and we will be personally shipping all of this out in August. The shipping is one potential challenge that we might have as we are doing that all ourselves, however we have been shipping most of our own merchandise since 2005 and feel we will be able to rise to this new task. We can personally attest to the production quality of the work, as we work with an in-house audio engineer and have received and approved test pressings of the vinyl.

With any tour there are risks beyond our control (weather, unforeseen sickness, personal matters), and as always will do our best to make each date on the tour. In fact, last November we were rendered van-less in Montana only 4 dates into our tour. We managed to get a different van and fix it along the rest of the tour so that we made each scheduled date (albeit sometimes arriving less than an hour before our set, but we made it!).

In conclusion, we are determined to overcome whatever risks and challenges we face in order to bring our music to our current fans and hopefully inspire some new!
