About this project

ATTENTION!!! All the demos you heard at the end of the main video will NOT be on the final album. The sound is yet to be determined but Matt is continuing to write demos in hopes of coming up with an amazing first track. Below is a demo for the actual album! Free download of the first single demo! http://mattromero.bandcamp.com/track/the-last-song-for-the-end-of-the-world-2

Matt Romero founder of the project/band Us Versus Them has been making albums since 1999. First appearing on the website MP3.com Matt has gone on after leaving college out west (western Mass) to explore and find himself both spiritually and musically. After returning to the city of Boston he began a band and produced 4 albums before returning to his solo music to produce 3 more full-length albums.

Now 31 years old and soon to be graduating from college with a BA in Music this Kickstarter is Matt's "final hurrah" to see if anybody out there is still listening.

With his last ounce of energy and motivation Matt completed the first Under The Gun album and was meant to be his last, Matt has resolved to try one more time but this time only with the help of YOU, the listener to see if indie, unsigned artists still have a chance in the current state of music and its respective industry today.

If enough care to hear new music from Matt then he will be energized and motivated to make the album of his career, devoting the time and love necessary to make an amazing, tight and polished album.

The sky is the limit as Matt also has a friend and resource within producer Matt Russell to potentially make a larger budget professional studio album if funding goes above 1,000 and depending how much God willing the funding goes up then a full blown full-length studio album could happen. This would allow Matt to ship the album to execs to shop the music to and perhaps give Matt hope that all his work over the past 12 years was not done in vain.

The question is...is anybody out there? is there still a place for the unsigned indie artist like Matt who has been doing it for over a decade? He has put everything he has into it, and now Kickstarter shows one last glimmer of hope.

Either way, thank you for listening, reading and watching. At least you now have heard some of Matt's music and his story. And that's all he ever wanted. 

Risks and challenges

The risks to this project is minimal, its quality will be determined by the enthusiasm of the people, of the listeners, by YOU. Matt has slowly been losing motivation and reasons to make new music since a few years back. This is the point where a new album is energized by the audience and fans or it falls through the cracks and is never completed. This is the turning point in Matt Romero's music career.
