The time has come! Our 4th full-length studio album has been recorded and all the final mixes are done! Now we need the funds to pay for mastering, manufacturing, and distribution of this release. 

It has always been a goal of the band to one day release one of our albums on vinyl LP. What better time than now! Along with many other fans of classic Jamaican music we are happy with the comeback vinyl records are making and are celebrating their resurgence in popularity.  But pressing vinyl isn't cheap! For this to happen, we have to ask for a bit more to cover those costs.

The Georgetown Orbits are so grateful for the continued support of all the fans over the years, and we work hard to make sure our music is always reaching new ears. We all feel strongly that this album is our best work to date.

We need your contribution to make this album a reality! Quite frankly, The Georgetown Orbits would not exist without you! We want to give a deep, heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone for your support!

<3 GTO's

Risks and challenges

We are confident that if we collect the necessary funds to release this album that risks and obstacles will be few. We have a good relationship with our mastering and CD manufacturing contacts as we have done business with them before.

It is possible the vinyl LP's may take a little longer than expected. Because of the growing demand for vinyl records and the limited amount of pressing plants in the country, there are usually long wait lines to get your order pressed at all plants. Rest assured though, we will expedite as much of this process as possible, and get this LP into your hands as soon as we can.
