For the better part of the last year, Esbern Snare has been hard at work recording debut album, "A Violent Peace," in the studio with Jonathan Anderson at Whalehead Records. The record is all but completed, but we need your help with the last few items that need to be paid for. The goal of this fundraising campaign is essentially to cover three essential things: mastering, album artwork,and CD replication

We've agonized over this record, and we are ecstatic about how close to the finish line we actually are. Everything up to this point has been financed out of pocket, but we've simply run out of money. If we do wind up reaching and surpassing our goal of $2,200, the extra money will go towards touring behind and promoting "A Violent Peace." 

We can't wait to share this album with everyone who has helped make it a reality, and we are incredibly grateful for all of the support we've already been shown. Thanks for listening.

The wonderfully talented, Norfolk-based artist, Jonathan Aumen, is creating the album artwork. Do yourself a favor and go check out his website. He's fantastic. http://www.jonathanaumen.com/

Risks and challenges

The biggest potential risk we have with this project comes from the CD replication or album artwork taking longer than expected, as that could push the release date (and in turn the rewards) back further than January, which is what we are currently aiming for. If this happens, it won't affect any of the rewards themselves, just whether or not they are received within the estimated timeframe. We tried to only offer rewards that we KNOW we can follow through on, and we will be sure that we make good on any promises.
