Why is this happening?
Great question! The past few months we've been organizing a tour around the United States to promote our new album Voyager. It's been wickedly hard, especially because we've booked each show independently. However, with persistence we've locked in majority of the dates and we're so very excited to see you along the way.
Oh cool! But don't you have enough money to tour from that Alt-J thing?
Unfortunately not! In fact, this Kickstarter is the only way we can guarantee to have money for living expenses on tour. Our goal of $8,000 will guarantee us money for food, lodging, gas, and a refund for the Visas ($4,000). Our goal will not only help pay for most expenses on tour, but any extra money will go towards paying some hard-working musicians.
HEY! WAIT A MINUTE! WHERE ARE YOU TOURING?
Yes, yes, let's tell you where we're going. Bold means we're 100% COMING! Non-Bold means we're still in the middle of confirming a show, and are 93% coming there. Click the links for more details on each show.

Risks and challenges
For the most part, we don't think we'll have many difficulties completing our project. Once we have this money we'll be able to confirm a lot more details for the tour in terms of budgeting total expenses for food, gas, and lodging.
Perhaps one challenge we will have is delivering all the rewards on time. We're already prepping majority of the rewards, but we've heard from friends who have made Kickstarter's often it takes some time to fulfill the entire thing. In order to avoid this, we've given some of the more time consuming rewards a longer delivery date, specifically the ones that involve creating songs/sending videos. We're extremely dedicated to our fans and fulfilling tasks for the band, so we doubt that this will become a problem in the end.
