To those who may pledge,
The premise of Obnox Onward is to raise money to improve the condition of our instruments, studio environment, and touring vehicle, and to purchase plane tickets to Europe by producing a vinyl seven inch record and an exclusive live extended play for those who have donated to the cause. These products will be delivered before the end of the year 2015 just in time for Christmas. There will be three weeks for pledging and we encourage everyone to spread the word, so that we may continue to bring you the best records and shows possible. Things really were never quite the same after our van and equipment were destroyed by fire on I90 a couple of years ago. So we reach out to the community for support as we prepare to tour to as many places as we can, all while making some of the hottest rock and roll on the street.
Our goal is to raise $9,000 dollars, five thousand of which, would go to refurbishing or replacing our tour van. This will enable us to tour more frequently while traveling safely, as I've toured in more deathtraps than I'd care to remember. One thousand dollars will be used toward studio improvements (too many to list here), and the subsequent recording of an lp entitled, Obnox "Skywalker OG". An additional one thousand dollars will be used for instrument concerns, such as drum heads, cymbals (our cymbals look like Swiss cheese), mic stands, guitar set ups, amp wiring, etc. And the final two thousand dollars will go to the purchase of plane tickets for an already booked European tour and completion of our website which will make it easier to communicate with everyone regarding booking, merchandise, and anything Nox related. Any extra income will be used to ship premium goods to those who have donated.
So spread the word friends, fans, and supporters, as we attempt to make the best records we can, and play as hard, and as often as possible! We've been able to do great things with very little. Now we turn to you for a little help as we try to create something even better than our previous efforts. Thank you all for your consideration.
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge regarding this project is production of the physical single. We are confident that we will be able to deliver our products in a timely fashion, and we have a wealth of material to choose from. These records/rewards will be recorded and produced in our home studio to keep cost down, and manufactured in our hometown, Cleveland, Ohio, to insure quick expediting to those who have pledged.
The band, in addition, will be playing plenty of shows, local and otherwise, in an attempt to raise money on our own, simultaneously, with the Kickstarter campaign.
