*UPDATE: Stretch Incentive #2*
Everyone's support throughout this project has been astounding. Because of the extra funding, we've decided to step it up a level and go into a studio to record our new album rather than record it ourselves. That means a lot less stress for us and the utmost quality for you.
I'm excited to announce our second stretch goal! If we can reach $1,500 in the remaining 15 days of our project, we will give backer-exclusive Ustream access to a show just for you guys. That means that for everyone who has backed our Kickstarter project, we will play a show for you and you can watch it online LIVE wherever around the world you may be! Front row seats, baby!
*UPDATE: Stretch Incentive #1*
Thanks so much for helping us reach our goal in a ridiculous 8 days!! We're still blown away by the support. I'm happy to announce our first stretch goal: If we can reach $1,000 before the time runs out on our project, we'll record and release two BRAND-NEW songs. Never before heard. Free download. If you want to hear the ongoing vision of Hope[rising] Project, here's your chance...
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
We are recording our first album over the month of January, to be tracked by Jack Vondrachek of Roosevelt Recordings, mixed/mastered by Patrick Kiloran of PSK Sound in February, and then released publicly on March 1.
Hope[rising] Project - [EP]
- I'll Take My Chances
- Hello, Snowflake
- Forest for the Trees
- Alive (BRAND NEW!)
We're excited for this album, and we hope you are too! Feel free to check out any of the links below to hear some of our current demos.
WHAT WILL MY MONEY DO?
We are 100% financially invested in this album. It's happening one way or another. In February. We're inviting you to help us out with 50% of the total costs through Kickstarter 1) To allow us to give you something special in return for your support and 2) To allow us the opportunity to give back to the people who made this album happen so cheaply in the first place. Our studio guys, album art designers, etc.
- Album studio production: $750
- Album cover art design: $250
HOW CAN I HELP?
Two equal goals for this project are funding and promotion. We hope we've put up some fun and special incentives for everyone offering their support to us through pledges. Feel free to message us if you want to pledge more and combine pledge rewards.
We would love your support in spreading the word too! Sharing our project with your friends through social media and word-of-mouth is huge. After all, 500 mouths all shouting "HEY- CHECK THIS OUT!" are far more effective than just five mouths! We're a new band and need your help to reach out to everyone who hasn't heard our music. Thank you!!
Risks and challenges
There are no risks associated with this project's completion. We are 100% financially invested in making this album a reality (in the same timeframe too), whether or not we meet our Kickstarter goal.
That said, your pledges are extremely valuable to us AND they're vital to our success as an emerging band. What do your pledges do? They help take some pressure off the financial stresses of producing an album. They also help us give back to the people who are making our budget work in the first place! That includes our studio guys, our album art designers, etc. And your pledges make the future possible. Merchandise goodies and much more. Perhaps most excitingly, your pledges also help us spread the word.
We're committed to our investment and to you. Your support means the world to us!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
