About

$2,387

By popular demand, we're pressing the 3rd Botanist full length, "III: Doom in Bloom," to vinyl. It comes on two disks on either black or black&white swirl colored vinyl in a heavy gatefold sleeve featuring M.S. Waldron's stunning artwork. We will be pressing 500 total copies (350 black, 150 color). The album will be released on Otrebor's own label, Favonian. We'll be doing the "pre-order" of sorts here via kickstarter, offering a couple bucks off the normal price of any of the vinyl records. To help meet the goal, we're also offering the following:

- newly designed logo patches and beanies 

- new shirts 

- package deals with all the physical items at an even deeper discount.

and some exclusive items to this campaign only: 

- a rehearsal/live recording with unique cover art, with the name of every person who buys it during this campaign in the liner notes. The album will be limited to the amount of people who buy it in this Kickstarter.

- drums used on Botanist records, including an entire kit!

- a unique opportunity to meet the band and hang out over the course of a Botanist practice weekend. 

Risks and challenges

The risks are delays at the pressing plant. We want to press the rehearsal recording to CD, but if we have much fewer than 100 pledges we'll have to do CDRs, which we'd still make personalized. Everything should start shipping by June!

    DRUM KIT USED ON "EP1: THE HANGING GARDENS OF HELL" as well as two other songs from the same session to be published in the future.

    The kit is a Tama Starclassic Performer 8-piece double bass birch kit in Red Cherry Fade with only traces of wear (like a chip on a drum hoop). It comes with all the necessary hardware to mount the toms to the kit, as well as a doublekick Gibraltar curved drum rack with 6 clamps to mount toms/cymbals/whatever. You can also mount 2 more cymbals on the end stands. The drum sizes and complete list of gear is:

    - 2x 22x18 kick drums with tom mounts
    - 1x 16x16 floor tom
    - 1x 14x12 rack tom
    - 1x 12x9 rack tom
    - 1x 10x8 rack tom
    - 1x 8x7 rack tom
    - 1x 14x5.5 matching snare
    - all drums come with die-cast hoops and the newer/chrome version of the Star-Cast mounting system
    - Tama clamp to mount 14" tom as a hanging floor tom
    - Gibraltar curved double bass rack with 2 cymbal stands
    - 6 Gibraltar Road Series clamps
    - soft cases for most of the drums (the toms and probably the snare)
    - a copy of all the other items offered on this kickstarter.

    Shipping cost for this will be discouraging. So we are offering to drive the kit as far as 400 miles each way as long as our gas is paid for and a place is offered for 1-2 people to sleep for a night. Free pickup is also fine (you can stay over with us if you drive far). We will also ship anywhere, but be prepared for the costs!
