About this project

* For news and updates, please click the "Updates" tab above*

Thank you for checking out our Kickstarter project.

THE BELLWETHER SYNDICATE is the new musical project of William Faith (of Faith and the Muse, formerly of Christian Death, Shadow Project, Mephisto Walz, Sex Gang Children, etc.) and Sarah Rose (aka DJ Scary Lady Sarah).

We are currently hard at work recording our debut EP, titled The Night Watch, and a video for the title track "The Night Watch." We have launched this Kickstarter campaign to help us raise the funds we need to have the EP mixed and mastered by the best people we can find, as well as produce an amazing video that will provide stunning visuals to complement the powerful sonic/lyrical landscape of the EP. 

This an amazing moment for us; we are incredibly excited about this project, and can't wait to share it with you. The short video above explains our goals in further detail, but we are hoping we can count on *you*, our friends and fans, to lend your support to this project and help make it possible.

If you have any questions about any of the rewards, please contact us at info@thebellwethersyndicate.com.

Our deepest thanks to you for your support -- we can't do it without you!

All the love,

William & Sarah
