About this project
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?
It's pretty eclectic. The new one is more so.
You mentioned shirts and patches?
Yes! They're awesome! Here's some pics:
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?Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
