Hey Hey Hey
The time has come: we are about to release the most amazing album The Hip Abduction has ever created! We’ve been working on this record for the past 18 months (coincidentally the craziest and hardest year to date) and it pretty much contains every ounce of our blood, sweat and tears. We can’t wait to release this precious goodness into the world! And that’s where YOU come in… the album won’t officially release until spring 2016, so we’ll be using the Kickstarter platform as an opportunity to celebrate with you guys first. After all, without the love tribe there would be no THA -And we can’t thank you guys enough for the love and support.
Our last record was released in winter 2013 and it became a game changer for us. Not only did we win some 'album of the year' awards by The Pier Magazine and HGNW, but we also landed on the Billboard charts for the first time. And ya know what... we had $0 dollars in marketing / radio budget. Zip, nada, nothing - we just couldn't afford it. So it got us thinking... what if we could release an album with the same driving force that supports a Bruno Mars or Taylor Swift record? Haha - nevermind that would cost $43-bazilion dollars. But, what if we could release an album record label-style but without the actual record label? Where our fans would support us and help us push our new album to the world? Grass roots to the full effect! That's why we’re here. That's why we want to connect with our people. We want the world to hear this album and we want you guys to be a part of the team.
How can we reward you for your support?
We’re offering the album for pre-order here in different forms, plus many of the packages include exclusive items that you can’t get anywhere in the world but here on Kickstarter. (Warning: some of these items are VERY special). Check them all out below, see if any strike your fancy, and come on board with us as we launch this little bird out of the nest and into the WORLD! With any PRE-ORDER, you’ll get:
- An immediate download of the new single "Come Alive" with the single artwork.
- An advance download of our new album before anyone else.
- Access to exclusive updates on the latest happenings for this release plus behind the scenes info.
We’ll also be adding surprise items as we go, as well as providing our supporters with exclusive behind-the-scenes content and early updates on tour announcements and more.
What happens if we meet our goal?
We anticipate, that in order to make a truly wonderful record and get it to the world, it’s gonna cost $48,950. That includes recording the album, engineering and mastering, manufacturing costs, artwork, radio promotions and album publicity, etc etc. If we reach our goal, YOU will have helped us offset these costs and will have played a major role in the success of our album.
What happens if we exceed our goal?
Whoa! If this happens it means that you have given us some incredible love and support and we can't thank you enough! As stated above, our goal is set to much less than our anticipated need, so any additional funds will go to further support the creation and release of our album. If we are so super fortunate to exceed even that, we want you to know that we do have a plan in place: All funds raised during this Kickstarter campaign will go towards album content creation including music videos, artwork/posters, apparel, assorted merch, etc. Funds will NOT be used for personal use, tour expenditures, vehicle maintenance, band equipment, practice space rental costs, etc. Our goal is to create tangible materials and promotional content aimed at getting our music heard by the world and thanking the wonderful people who have contributed to our campaign.
The biggest of Love
- David, Chris, PK, Paul, DJ, and Matty.
Risks and challenges
With all Kickstarter projects comes the risk that we do not make our goal. In that event, no donations will be collected, and rewards will not be sent.
We have worked hard to lay out recording milestones, budgets, and timelines. However, there is still a risk that the album does not get finished when expected.
If we make our goal, we promise to keep all backers up-to-date with our progress well after the Kickstarter campaign is finished. By becoming a backer, you are also becoming part of the process and deserve to know what's up.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
