Malaya's making a full-length album and they want you to be a part of it!

We've written new songs and we're teaming up with a wicked smart producer.  Now all we need is YOU!

For those of you that are just now getting to know us, we're Malaya and we make music!  Music, like this:

It's been a year since we released any new tunes, and we are itching to get back in the studio. We've spent the last year writing songs, playing shows, shooting music videos, and posting embarrassing pictures/memes of each other; like these:

We have a lot of fun, but we take this band very seriously.  We work, hard, to make this band as successful as possible, and despite all of our efforts to save up for a full-length recording, we are falling short of meeting our goal.  

Given the quality of our last recording, we'll be teaming up again with Brooks Paschal.  While we're extremely proud of our last project with Brooks, we're ready to take this full-length album to the next level.  This means stellar album art, new merch and gear, marketing and advertising, digital distribution, at least one music video, and so much more.  The donation you make is only a small part of what we need to make this album a product worthy of the fans we've acquired this past year.  You deserve the best, and we want to give that to you.

Our gratitude knows no bounds.

We're proud to be a growing part of the Tampa music scene, and we have often been surprised and humbled with how welcoming you all have been over the past year.  So much of our success as a band has been a direct result of your support, so we can't imagine doing this without you.  

With that said, we've come up with some pretty awesome perks for supporting this project that we think you will truly enjoy.  Please take a look at all of the perk options on the right, and find something that will work for you.  If you can't give monetarily, we understand.  Just do us the enormous favor of sharing us with your friends, family, coworkers, and anyone else you come across and we will be more than grateful for such a gift.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

With any new album release, there is risk of delay for any number of reasons. We're still writing new songs for the record, have to raise the funds, develop music video ideas, create album art, and we're working with someone who is traveling a long distance to record with us. Having been through the recording process with Brooks before, we're confident we have the right people in place to make this album successful. Plus, we have you. We're ready for anything that comes our way with recording this album and we're excited to share this entire experience with you!

FAQ

  • Yes and no. Kickstarter will not allow you to select more than one reward on the page itself, but we have no problem giving you multiple rewards if you see more than one you'd like. Just donate the total amount for the two rewards and then send us a message or leave us a comment on which rewards you want to receive. We'll make sure you get all of the rewards you wanted to pledge for when the project is fully funded.
