We need your help to partner with us as we record our Third Studio Album. We finally have no boundaries to make a label happy because you are the label! Our time at Tooth and Nail has come to an end. Instead of signing with another label and starting the machine up again, we need your help. The fans.

Have no doubt, this will be the heaviest Letter Black record to date. We have no boundaries on this record.

We are shooting for a financial goal of $25,000. This will cover the recording, mixing and mastering of our Third Studio Album. Anything over that set goal will be used for videos, publicity or anything else we can do to continue reaching the world and giving you, the fans special access to everything The Letter Black. 

It's been a long journey so far and we thank all of you for your continued support over the past 9 years. Thank you for checking this out and we cannot wait to partner with you!

Risks and challenges

Clear communication with backers is key. The most obvious challenge we could face would be producer schedules. If the producer we have chosen is not available during the time we have allotted, we will seek alternatives from our list. If we have no choice but to wait and be delayed, we will make sure the backers are well aware of the situation and new delivery schedules.
