About

Hey everyone,

First of all, THANK YOU for even being here on our page!  Most of you are probably familiar with Kickstarter and how it works, but here's a quick rundown just in case you don't know. Kickstarter is not a platform for people to simply ask for money. But rather, a place where artists and creators of all kinds can offer their goods and services in advance for payment.  In our case, we offer you a chance to purchase our music, t-shirts, and other goodies before anyone else, as well as get some Kickstarter exclusive items. 

We are so excited to announce that we have a new record with all brand new songs that is almost completely finished!  We plan to release it in April 2018. The money pledged on this Kickstarter campaign will be used to properly package, promote, and market the record. There is a list below of how every dime will be spent.  As you will see the original $15,000 goal falls just short of covering these. We have a PUSH GOAL that will allow us to cover all of the costs, plus be able to do further promotion. If we reach our push goal, everyone in tier 6 or higher is going to get a vinyl copy of the new record and a limited edition We Are The Monks tote bag

  • $6,000 - Aggressive publicity campaign                                              
  • $1,600 - Mixing the record                                                                     
  • $1,000 - Mastering the record
