Here's the skinny. We, Mister F, a constantly-touring, constantly-broke American band in the year 2017, were already planning on starting one of these here Kickstarters to help fund an album, and then our tour van died in a mundane, unspectacular, non-blaze-of-glory side-of-the-road sort of way, and we can't even get to our own shows without help now. We're asking for a measly $100 to cover its last, sad tow. 

BUT while we're here, we REALLY still need to make a new album AND purchase a van to tour to support it with! Here's the hopefuls:

$10,000 : VAN - Ford E-350 15-passenger (or comparable)  

$8,000 : NEW ALBUM

      Album cost breakdown:  

           $2500 / Studio Time  

           $2500 / Mixing & Mastering  

           $1000 / Art  

           $2000 / Pressing CDs

Now, we don't want to use this as a platform to tell you what we think we're worth to you, we want to use it for you to show us what you think we're worth. We've put some creative rewards together and would love for you all to work as a team to squeeze more out of it, so at certain total dollar amounts past our $100 goal, we will unlock extra bonuses for backers!

For example: to start, if we hit $5,000, everyone who pledged for the $10 Digital Download reward and up will now *also* receive a limited-edition sticker. Expect more of these Unlockables as the campaign rolls on!

========================================================

THE UNLOCKABLES

TIER 1: $5000 - All pledges $10 and up receive LE sticker

More Unlockables to be announced once Tier 1 is hit!

Risks and challenges

We understand that asking for a small amount like $100 in our time of need is incredibly risky, but we hope that with everyone's help sharing to bring others together, all can squeeze a bit more out of their own rewards with the Unlockables. The more everybody pulls together, the more it will help push us to where we need to be to both create this album and support it on the road, most importantly bringing what you helped create back to YOU.
