Hey Fartface, is to be the second full-length CD by Ohio nerdcore rappers 2d6.
2d6 is a two-piece nerdcore hip-hop group. If you're unfamiliar with nerdcore, it's a genre based on lyrical tenets of nerdiness. Our songs, for example, run the gamut of geek-inspired stuff: we sing about fictional doctors, our frustration at awful grammar, the life of being a non-playable character, and lots of other topics. We've been around for about a year and a half now, and we're on the verge of releasing our second CD, "Hey Fartface,".
This is where you come in! See, up until this point, 2d6 has been entirely steeped in DIY ethics. We've burned all of our own CDs, bought the jewel cases, and made them ourselves. Both of the members of the band have other day jobs, and the prospect of packing hundreds of new CDs is becoming more than a headache--with as much as the both of us have been working lately and as little as we each make, it's going to be nigh impossible. For this CD, we'd like things to be a little more professional. We want to actually order the CDs from a legitimate company who can make them for us...and make them quality! For the $600 we're asking for this project, we can get 200 professionally made CDs. That's bunches.
And check this: for as little as a dollar, you'll get our new CD, and for as little as fifteen we can send you a physical copy.
This will help us on our way to becoming a real band who can perform on a bigger scale. We'll be able to work on our craft more, keep our day jobs and our night jobs, and still travel around to gigs, while at the same time increasing exposure and giving ourselves a bigger name as a band.
Also, we'd love you, so there's that.
I get it, I get it. You wanna hear some of our music before you invest. Fair! Check us out at http://www.sonicbids.com/2/EPK/?epk_id=319878, why don't you?
