we've done it! our goal has been reached, but you can still donate until late night Sunday May 1st. any money raised above our goal will be used to further promote the album to radio, blogs and magazines - so please give if you haven't already.
the 'Mericans are Chris Daltry, Michael Moore, Pete Lima and Paul Williamson. We've spent the past 2 years writing, recording and mixing our New Album 'So Late It Hurts' and now we're reaching out to you - our friends, families and fans - to help us fund the manufacturing of the new album on Vinyl LP Records, CDs and mp3 Digital Download.
Anyone contributing $10 or more will receive an mp3 Digital Download of the new album. Please pledge whatever amount you are willing to give. While our goal for this project is $5000, any amount above and beyond will be used for additional promotion.
There are also many other "Rewards" for donating larger amounts. On Kickstarter you can only choose one reward from our list of options. If you want multiple rewards, just choose the one you are most interested in (especially if it is a "limited reward") but pledge the total $ of the combined rewards you would like. To claim the additional rewards from your pledge, contact us to let us know what to set aside for you. All premiums can be autographed for you upon request.
Along with the LP + CD and MP3 of our New Album 'So Late It Hurts' we're also making our previous two albums ('Merican Recordings + Where All Dead Leaves Go) available digitally for the first time ever. We've also come up with many other rewards, some one-of-a-kind or Limited Edition (almost out-of-print CDs, Posters, Etc. There are also unique experiences with the band like going to a Baseball Game in Pawtucket, Bowling, a Cookout, going Golfing, private Guitar Lessons with Mike, a Karaoke Dance Party, or a Private House Concert with the 'Mericans. All levels of rewards also come with an mp3 Digital Download of our new album 'So Late It Hurts.'
All contributors will also receive special updates which will include Videos, access to advance streaming of the album, and Free Downloads of Rare, Remixed and Unreleased 'Mericans songs.
Your financial contributions are necessary for us to make this all happen. We've spent countless hours and money getting these recordings written, recorded, mixed and mastered. We're really proud of how it all turned out - so much so that we want to do this right. If you're interested in contributing financially, you can look at it in several ways - as being part of and helping fund our project, or as 'pre-ordering' the format of your choice and getting it well before it is sold online or in stores.
