After many months of writing and recording, The Velveteen Band is in the final mixing & mastering stages for our new much-anticipated album, "What's on the Other Side".

Now, we're asking for your help in making this album the best that it can be, by pre-ordering the CD in the format of your choosing, to help us cover printing and other related costs for the album.

Help us give you the best possible album we can by pre-ordering a cd (or two or three) and, if you're feeling generous, check out the limited edition top tier rewards for the chance to be personally thanked in a lyric video on The Velveteen Band's official YouTube page

But, who is the Velveteen Band?

We're a theatrical rock group, fronted by two puppets and a six foot rabbit.

We usually say that our genre is Steampunk, because of our visual aesthetic, the storytelling bent to our lyrics, and because the juxtaposition of old and new prepares an audience for the kind of genre-hopping that most bands can't get away with.  (You'd be amazed what we get away with.)

Really, we're a party band, playing mostly to cosplayers, and we're having the time of our lives.

Can I hear some music?

We'll be sharing some of that throughout the campaign, as mixes become final.  For now, here's a music video for our first single, "Holiday".

This here is a full album teaser, now that the mixing and mastering is done(!!!):

 And, here's the final mix on "I'm Not Broken".  You can read the song's backstory in Campaign Update 3.

 

What about the first album?

You might have heard it on SoundCloud, Spotify, CD Baby, iHeartRadio, YouTube, iTunes, and Amazon.  But if you haven't heard, this playlist can get you up to speed! 

It's pretty eclectic. The new one is more so.

You mentioned shirts and patches?

Yes!  They're awesome!  Here's some pics:

We're offering shirts now!  They look like this.

Risks and challenges

The risks are minimal! The album is already recorded and on its way to being printed, the only question is how great can we make this album look?

    "Executive Producer" Credit on the CD

    There's a fine tradition of large backers being credited on creative works as the exceptional patrons that they are, by bestowing upon them the honorary title of "Executive Producer". The title comes with no rights, powers, or responsibilities in this production, but it does get your name printed in the CD booklet, right next to the band and production crew.

    Let's go crazy. If somebody buys this one, we'll throw in FIVE of the Signed CD/Patch Bundle, and not sweat the shipping costs. Domestic? International? For this backer, that's not a problem.

    Includes:
    • An honorary title of great importance, but also no meaning.
    • SIGNED physical copy of the CD
    • Limited edition Canvas Patch
    • A surprise!
