Our San Jose indie rock/folk trio, Cartoon Bar Fight, plans to release a five-song EP titled "Tell All the Children" by the beginning of November 2011. Recordings are underway, but professional CD mastering, replication, album art/design, and packaging will be pricey.
We have raised some funds for this EP through tips at our shows (a hearty THANK YOU!!!!! to all the sweethearts around San Jose who have tipped us for this album), but what we have made thus far will cover only a fraction of the production and design costs. We need this album to be the real deal--snazzy, professional and ready to send to indie labels and local radio stations so we can increase our odds of "making it" as a band. A special thanks to the fantastically talented and creative Terry Fan for contributing some of his work as album art! Check out some of his stuff here! We love it!
The EP is about childhood, fairytales-turned-nightmares, wishing stars, disillusionment, and best friends.
Any funds raised over the pledge amount will simply go to printing more copies of the EP, or they will be reserved specifically for our full-length album (also in the works).
Thank you for helping fund one of our many dreams. :) We hope you'll love what you hear--and don't forget to tell your friends, family members, and anyone you know who supports independent music!
