We are in the final stages of getting ready to release our latest recording titled Welcome to the Sinkhole. It was recorded right here in Richmond, VA by local producer /engineer Kevin Willoughby. We are having it mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music in New York at the end of March. He has done a mass amount of fantastic bands over the years, and will make our new Album sound incredible !
. As anyone knows, record companies are few and far between. Most bands release their own material now, which is very expensive. CDs are dead. The digital platform reigns supreme, but Vinyl has made a huge resurgence. By having people pledge a certain amount, it in essence becomes almost like a pre-order for the Album. It helps us have it made and become available for our fans. We also are including with this Album a full regular CD. So if you want to preserve your album copy, you can just pop it in you CD player in you car or home, or just rip it onto you computer and load it on your IPhone, Android, MP3 player, etc.
We are offering this as a limited run Green Vinyl.. They will be signed and numbered 1 through 300. The first 11 are reserved for the highest pledges with number 1 solely for the super pledge. In the case that the largest pledge amount doesn't occur, we will still award it to the highest pledge of the campaign,.We will distribute the lowest hand number signed copies to anyone who pledges on this campaign.
We are fans of Vinyl, and could think of nothing else cooler than a Picture Disk or Gate-fold. The sound of Vinyl has no comparison, and is why it is still around and sold at shows. We will press our EP on 180 gram weight audiophile Vinyl. Its gonna sound HUGE!
This also allows us to speed up the process and not wait for an indie label to have it printed at their leisure a year from now. IIt puts the power into our hands. Gearing up for another regional tour, takes merch, and we want to be able to have this available at our shows as well. We love Kickstarter and what it helps artists like ourselves achieve. With yalls help, WE CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN! :)
Risks and challenges
Setbacks that we can think of, could be the Pressing plant having too many orders ahead of us to get it released by the target date. Worst case scenario would just be a little delay until the Pressing is complete. But rest assured, it will be completed and pressed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
