Hi folks - we're here to tell you about our new album in the works, titled "Soul Mine," and we need your help to bring it to fruition. This will be the Gasoline Lollipops' most ambitious project thus far.
As many of you know from the title of our debut album, released earlier this year, Clay Rose and Gasoline Lollipops have "resurrected." But now what? Well, after the Phoenix rises from the flames, all that's left besides itself is ashes. That's not a lot to work with. Clay has spent the last year sifting through ashes and coal, digging in the Soul Mine, as it were, throwing out what's no longer of value, polishing the gems, and occasionally striking a brand new vein of gold.
This year has been one of hope, remorse, dark inventories, and the building of an unshakable foundation. "Soul Mine" will be an album that reflects all of these trials and tribulations with an intensity usually reserved for the angst of youth and heartbroken lovers. "Soul Mine" is an urgent call to grow while staunchly refusing to ever grow up.
The album will be available on CD, all the digital platforms and - a first for Gasoline Lollipops - vinyl.
If you’d like to help make the recording and releasing of this new record possible, take a look at the right-hand side of this page and check out the different levels where you can help fund the new campaign and receive exclusives that range from copies of "Soul Mine" to Red Rocks tickets, tattoos with the band and a trip to see Gasoline Lollipops perform in Belize.
100% of the proceeds we raise will go to the release of "Soul Mine."
If you’re not in the position to help financially, you can still be a part of the project by spreading the word and sharing our Kickstarter campaign with friends and family.
As you can imagine, we’re all very excited to be working directly with you on this project, and can't wait to share the new music with you in concert as well as on the album.
Thanks for checking out the campaign, and thank you so much for all of your support of Gasoline Lollipops. Without our fans we wouldn’t be able to do what we love - performing music for you!
Risks and challenges
The recording and manufacturing process has many expenses and we need help offsetting those costs. From studio time, to engineering, mixing, mastering and manufacturing, the bill adds up quick!
Recording / mixing / mastering: $5,000
Graphic designs / album art / photos: $1,000
Initial pressing of vinyl album: $2,500
Initial pressing of Compact Disc album: $1,500
Kickstarter rewards: $3,000
Kickstarter Fees: $1,000
Initial total = $14,000
This is our best estimate and we will likely exceed our budget. We're asking for $10,000 to help offset the bulk of the cost, and to ensure we can complete this and send it out into the world.
In the event that we exceed our goal, we will be using the money to hire a PR company to launch a press and radio campaign to promote Soul Mine and it's release at the Fox Theatre in December. The going rate for a small PR company to run a three month campaign on an album release is $3,500. As you can see, we are ready to put every penny to good use.
We cannot wait to share our music with you! Thank you!!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
