About

We are Broken Things, and we need your help to press our debut release on vinyl!

Broken Things began recording our as of now nameless seven song 12" EP in September of 2016 with Norval Alleman at NorvalSound Recording Studio, in St. Petersburg, FL. We are currently (approximately) 90% done with the recording portion of self-funded project. 

The four of us — Anthony, Stewart, Colin and Mike — are vinyl aficionados, and one thing became abundantly clear about halfway through the recording process: after releasing two EP's via CD and digital download, we would LOVE to commit something to vinyl!

Unfortunately without the support of a label, paired with the inability to tour full-time — as well as the additional exorbitant costs associated with the mastering and pressing of an LP — we are short the funds needed to see the totality of our vision come to fruition. That's where you come in.

We have set up a four tiered reward system, should you choose to help us reach our goal of pressing 300 12" EP's. You can read about those rewards under the "Support This Project" tab.

With this project, we will have 45-days to raise the $2,500 needed to master and press the vinyl release, as well as send you any of the tangible rewards if/when we meet our goal. Check back often for any updates (video or otherwise) on the project. 

Broken Things' eponymous CD/EP — one of the tangible rewards should you choose to support our campaign.

Any leftover funds will be used to recoup any extraneous recording expenses, as well as the creation of our own boutique vinyl only label, Dead Sound Recordings.

Risks and challenges

We have isolated two risks or challenges for you, our potential benefactor, and us:

1. Turn around time for the vinyl release. Because of the recent "vinyl boom," there may be a delay in the time associated with the pressing of a record — something that has been well documented: http://5chicago.com/features/2015-record-pressing-delays/.

In kind, we will be upfront and honest, and maintain communication with you all along the way.

2. If we do not meet our goal, we will find another way to master and put our pending release.
