UPDATE - We are less than $1,000 away from our ultimate goal of $7,500! We can't thank everyone enough for their overwhelming support. Once we hit $7,500, we will send all Kickstarter Backers an out-takes video from the above Kickstarter video.
Whether you're a fan, friend, family, or you just luckily stumbled upon this, we're glad you could make it! It's gonna be a kicksasstarter party! (see what we did there?)
As many of you know, The Narrative has been an unsigned/DIY band since its inception. The trend continues! Don't fret, there are numerous benefits to being on our own. We get to make ALL the creative decisions. We get to decide how we spend our resources and time. We get to form personal relationships with our fans without some label guy/gal breathing down our necks to be doing something else. We get to choose who we want to tour with and when.
However, not everything involves walking through a field of singing lollipops and dancing cranberries whilst riding majestic unicorn/sea-lion half breeds (which may or may not have the ability to speak to you). It's a great deal of hard work being in a band, and often it can cost quite a bit of money.
We're not complaining - we love creating and playing music, and we have gained so much from watching many of you form a connection with us and our music. In fact, over the years we've felt more like we're all part of some sort of team or [very strange] family as opposed to a traditional artist/fan relationship. This sounds kind of sappy, but it's really true. Those of you who have become familiar faces at shows know this already, and we appreciate every last person who has supported us in one way or another in the same regard.
That's why we hope it's alright that we come to you now and ask for your HELP!!!!
You see, we got these great opportunities to do this sweet tour with Eisley as well as to play Warped Tour in the Summer, and we just couldn't turn them down. The thing is, being a small band in a gigantic small-band-swallowing monstrous ocean doesn't always create cost-effective opportunities.
That's where you come in! We need help producing merchandise (t-shirts and CDs), paying for gas, food, the sometimes motel when it's too creepy to sleep in the van, and everything else that comes along with touring.
However, beggars we're NOT! In an effort to maintain some sort of self-respect, we're going to do our best to offer you some totally sweet prizes for donating to our cause. These are viewable to the right. You can donate as little or as much as you want, and we'll be thankful for anything and everything.
One of the prizes (at $300) is a living room show - please make sure to check our UPDATES page to see when and where those are possible. We are hoping to fill in some shows on our days off.
Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions, comments, etc.!
Do I have to donate an amount equal to one of the prize qualifications?
No way, José (or whoever you are)! You may donate as little or as much as you want. Any number you can think of is fair game, and we'll love you for it GUARANTEED.
Can I request the prizes be gifted to a friend/girlfriend/boyfriend/ominous lover/family member/nemesis?
Yup, go ahead and make the donation. We'll likely reach out to you, but feel free to e-mail email@example.com with any special instructions.
Can I increase my pledge once it has been made?
You better believe it, all-star! If you decide you want to adjust your contribution for whatever reason (totally drooling over that sweet prize one level above yours, or you just plain had a good day and want to throw us some loose change), this is how you do it:
1 - You cut a hole in a box. No wait, sorry... You sign on to Kickstarter!
2 - Click the BLUE button that reads "Manage Your Donation". From here you can change it to whatever you'd like.
3 - ?????
4 - Profit.
I am an international fan and am having difficulty donating through Kickstarter. Is there any other way I can help?
Absolutely. You can donate a gift of any amount to firstname.lastname@example.org through paypal - you can also indicate which prize you would like and we'll make sure to get that to you.
What do I get if I donate over ONE MILLION DOLLARS?!!!!!!
Haha... hopefully some sort of satisfaction knowing you made us pee ourselves.
