a limited European tour only 7" of brand new Blood Beach recordings and a cassette of Portland artists to give out FREE in Europe

Dead Maester's Tongue b/w Factory Dream European Only 7" and Keep Portland Normal Cassette Compilation

Blood Beach is going on a two week European tour in September.  See itinerary here: http://www.facebook.com/events/100549283420804/

We are trying to raise money to produce a limited European only 7" of two of our new recordings (as heard in the video and on the PDX Pop Now Compilation) to sell in Europe to raise money for gas.  Hear one of the recordings in full here: http://bloodbeach.bandcamp.com/album/dead-maesters-tongue-2012-new-unreleased

We would also like to spread the word of the exciting Portland music community overseas; so we would like to produce a cassette that we will give away FREE in Europe highlighting music made here that we think is interesting and unique.  We will call this compilation Keep Portland Normal and will feature bands like Big Black Cloud, Psychic Feline, Dragging an Ox through Water, Formica Man, Jason Urick, Nucular Aminals, Plankton Wat, Swahili, Grape God, Polyps, Tunnels + an exclusive Blood Beach track

Our fundraising target of $1500 USD will cover the manufacturing—vinyl mastering, pressing, printing and packaging—of a limited edition, European tour seven inch single as well as the mastering, duplication and packaging of a similarly limited edition cassette compilation, given away by the band for free. The remainder of the funds collected will be allocated to the cost of transportation and distribution of the aforementioned products across the Atlantic and across the European continent.

We are offering some very exciting rewards!  The only way for Americans to get the 7" will be to donate to our Kickstarter and we will send a copy of the cassette compilation along as well.  For a little extra, You will be able to purchase handmade art from the band!  

Camella makes intricate pins from polymer that are handdrawn and colored.  You will be able to choose the subject matter for your pin!  See her work here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/80045108@N04/

Shane makes watercolor paintings and comics and you will be able to choose your theme or subject matter for a unique piece of framable 5" x 7" artwork.  see his work here: AlteredBeasts.tumblr.com

Finally, for one hundred dollars, our hirsute rhythm section, your choice of Ethan or Cody, will cut their filthy hippie hair, fashion a small doll out of it, and send it to your door. Any remaining hair will be donated to the chairity of your choice.
