THE FINAL STRETCH
Again, we can't thank you guys enough for all you've done for us thus far! To show our gratitude, we've decided to add just one more incentive to keep you guys itching for more. So, what's this final incentive? Well, how do these five prizes sound?
1) Exclusive Sic Vita Hoodie
2) Hang out and sit in on a Sic Vita practice
3) Voucher for free entrance to any one Sic Vita show
4) Pick a song for us to make an acoustic cover of
5) BE IN A SIC VITA MUSIC VIDEO
Not too shabby? Well, how about if you had the chance to win ALL of them as one GRAND PRIZE? Here's how you can!
For every $10 you have graciously donated, one raffle ticket will be entered in your name. So, if you donated $25, you will have two raffle tickets and two chances to win this grand prize. Everyone who has donated $100 or more will be limited to 10 raffle tickets. When this Kickstarter project has ended, we will hold a raffle and pick THREE WINNERS! See you guys on the other side!
First off, we would like to thank all of you for helping us reach our goal so quickly! We truly appreciate what you guys are doing for us and we're enthralled by the support we've gotten thus far. In order to pay you back, we've put together THREE STRETCH GOALS, just as we promised! Below are three more goals tied with three more incentives you might want to keep your eye on.
$1500 - Free Entrance to our 2nd Annual Halloween Show!
If we reach our first stretch goal of $1500, all backers who pledged an amount of $5 or more will gain free entrance to our 2nd Halloween show this fall. But of course, the fun doesn't end there. Not only will you be deciding what you will dress up as, but you will also get a chance to pick what we'll be wearing that night! Whether you want us all to dress up as Power Rangers or Rugrats, you decide! All eligible pledgers may submit a themed costume idea and we will reveal the best ideas to the public to allow everyone to vote! The costume idea with the most votes will be our attire for the night! Oh, and don't forget; be creative!
$1700 - Barbecue Listening Extravaganza!
For bringing us to our second stretch goal, we will host a barbecue (wait, free food?!) where all eligible pledgers (those who pledged $10 or more) will get to listen to History in its entirety while enjoying great food and company. Expect some live acoustic music from some of your favorite local acts. So, what's better than chowing down on some free burgers and getting to listen to the new album before it's released? Being able to take home the CD with you! That's right, you'll be receiving the physical CD early!
$2000 - 4 Track Single Including a Brand New Song!
Reaching our third stretch goal will not only bring tears of joy to our faces, but allow all backers who pledged $20 or more to download our Single! This will include the single off of History, a brand new song (never before played!), and two live recordings. One single; four songs! The compiling of this four track single will take some time and will not be distributed until after the release of History.
What Has Sic Vita Been Up To? (It's all History)
A lot has happened for us over the past year. After two rock hunts, a plethora of shows, a ton of writing, and 357 Arizona Tea products, the time has come for Sic Vita (www.facebook.com/sicvitaband) to begin recording their 2nd EP. The new record, titled History, is going to consist of 5 brand new songs never before recorded and a new recording of our song Atlas!
After much consideration, we've decided to produce this effort with recording engineer, Scott Riebling, who has worked with national acts such as Fall Out Boy, Cobra Starship, We the Kings, Secondhand Serenade and other great bands. We're beyond thrilled to be working with such a talented and overall awesome fellow! The EP will then be mixed by Jim Keaney of The Appreciation Post (https://www.facebook.com/theappreeshpost) and Devotion Recording (https://www.facebook.com/devotionrecording), which is equally as exciting. We will start the process in late Spring, work through the summer and hopefully release the final product in late Summer or early Fall.
Our excitement is beyond measure right now as we can't wait to get these songs out to all of you for your listening pleasure! We've been working on perfecting these songs for several months now and we are confident they are ready for the presses. However, we're looking to put out the best recordings and packaging that we financially can. For what we have planned right now, the estimated cost of getting the tracks ready will be around 4 thousand dollars to complete. THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN!
HELP US MAKE "HISTORY"! (What is Kickstarter?)
The page that you are currently on is our Kickstarter page. Essentially, this page is a means for you to help fund our EP so that the financial blow on us is significantly lifted when paying back Scott Riebling and Jim Keaney. We aren't expecting kickstarter to fully fund the album, but again this will help us in a huge way.
You won't go unrewarded though! As you can see on the right side of the page, by putting money towards this, you are directly preordering our album! The more you donate to us, the more you get! We have rewards such as downloading the album when it's ready, getting the physical CD, T-shirts, wristbands, exclusive acoustic demos, and so much more! Check it out and see what you'd like to get from us! Also, If there is something you'd like to see on the rewards section that is not currently there, LET US KNOW and if demand is popular enough, maybe we'll put it there! Then you can upgrade/add that reward to your current preorder!
We decided to set our goal to $1200. This means that in order for us to receive any of this money we MUST reach that amount raised by 30 days. If we don't get to that amount, WE GET NOTHING and you keep your money. Let's try and make sure your wallets are a little lighter, but your CD racks, drawers, and hard drives have a little more space taken up. Also, once we hit the goal, we're going to be setting up secondary goals. These will be extra incentives that we will do for you guys if we can reach a certain amount above our main goal! What will these extras be? DONATE TO FIND OUT!
Risks and challenges
The #1 risk behind just about any project is money. We are going to have to keep up with our debts and deadlines according to these financial constraints. But that's where you guys come in! We have been working extremely hard and we're very diligent about the new music we want to record. As we press through pre-production of the EP, we will ensure that we are fully prepared to record, and all money backed from this project will go towards time spent actually recording the final product we're so passionate about.
Also, reward delivery dates are estimated, meaning that if we run into unforeseeable issues that delay the process, the rewards may get to you a little later than expected. YOU WILL GET THEM THOUGH! GUARANTEED! We'll keep everyone updated with our progress!
Thank you for taking the time to read this and helping us make "History"! We'll see you guys on the other side!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
