The video is long. Below is not:
Fit For Rivals is an unsigned, independent band from Jacksonville, FL.
In 2010, we wrote nearly 60 songs. That same year, we went and recorded only 5 of those songs in a house in Georgia with our great and talented friend Stan. Record labels saw these songs as 'almost there' without the help of a producer. Out of money and out of options, we thought we had no where to turn.
But now a new opportunity arises: Fit For Rivals has the opportunity to go to Nashville, TN to work with the same producers who recorded 30 Seconds to Mars, The Deftones, Korn, Evanescence, and many other MEGA huge rock bands. This will undoubtedly cost money. While it may seem like a lot, this is a VERY modest recording budget in terms of the kind of production we'll be able to accomplish. Most records at this level go from budgets of 100k to much higher. We're shooting low at 9.5k and aiming high in hopes that we can make a major label quality album as an independent band. All the resources are there to make it happen. With your support, it CAN happen.
Where will the money go? Other than food and lodging during the process, it will ALL go towards recording. If a miracle occurs and we exceed our budget, the excess will be allocated to more studio time, the absolute perfecting of our record's sound, final mixing, promotion, marketing, and if we're lucky, distribution to the world.
Our future is in your hands! Thank you!
