Chakras is heading to Ojai, CA. in December '14 to record a 3 song EP in 311 vocalist SA Martinez's studio, Holy Grailien. Grammy award winning producer Joe Chiccarelli will be producing and mixing the project, with Ryan Siegel assistant producing and engineering.

The 3-song EP is going to be used as both a pre-release to a full length, as well as a "shopping" EP for A&R, investors and other avenues of disbursement.

The budget for the project is over $30k, and, while the band has amassed some of the funding, we're reaching out to fans, music lovers, friends and family for help in getting there.

Our KS campaign goal is $10k. We have put together some great incentives for those generous enough to pledge, and look forward to sharing our new music with everyone!

Please remember that we only receive funding if the project reaches the goal amount, so every little bit helps! Rewards start at $5, but you can donate as little as $1 to the project.

Risks and challenges

An obvious challenge is ensuring that we meet our Kickstarter goal by the 12/12 10am deadline!

This project is the first step in a process. There will be marketing campaigns, touring, photo shoots and video productions that will be required to truly make all of this come together.

However, we're confident that, once we complete this key step in the process, we will be well situated to move forward. Our management team at Psallontes International is prepared and ready to go out and knock on, or knock down, doors to opportunities throughout the music industry.

Our Kickstarter funders are a key element in making all the magic happen.
