Cult indie band Sparrow have recently completed the recording & mixing of their long-awaited third album 'Post-Truth'.
So far Sparrow have done all of the work themselves behind the scenes. The album is ready, along with a series of music videos which will be released throughout the Summer. Sparrow will be playing live shows later this year in support of the album release in Autumn 2017.
This is where you come in!
Sparrow are now crowdfunding through Kickstarter in order to finance the production of 12" vinyl and CD versions of the album to go alongside a full digital release.
Please check out the backing options available. There’s lots to choose between, from the album pre-order pack of your choice, to small numbers of limited edition earlier releases.
The band will put any extra money over the Kickstarter target towards reaching a wider audience through videos, media and any other creative things they can think of!
Risks and challenges
We released two albums and a full-length EP from 2011-2013 and had a really great response. We're hoping that some of those fans will be excited (and maybe surprised) to hear that we're returning with a new album.
We're very proud of it!
The biggest challenge with any self-release is getting the maximum number possible of people to hear it! That's one of the reasons we wanted to crowdfund the physical release, to help let as many people as possible know that it's out there. Plus, anyone who wants to help can share the Kickstarter and help us get the word around.
We're also really keen to release the album on 12" vinyl, which is loads more expensive than just a CD or digital release. But we think with your help we can raise enough money to make it happen!
We think the album is worthy of as large a release as we can muster and we're going to work hard over the coming months to make sure there's as much promotion as possible.
Thanks loads for your support, it's so good to be back.
