Air Traffic Controller and Bleu have been dreaming about album #2 since before The One was even released. We're so excited about making this record and releasing it on a larger scale than was ever possible before anyone knew about ATC. This could be ... kind of a big deal!
Cranking out an album independently has its benefits, but it's still a tall order for any artist. After spending it all (and then some) to make, release, and promote The One, doing another album now is just beyond our means. ... BUT then came the Kickstarter idea!
Please don't consider this a charity case, honestly it would be difficult to just accept donations (difficult.. not impossible!). You could consider this a Pre-sale, Tee-sale, or a fun way to get involved with a band you love (c'mon .. admit it.).
Involved.. you ask? Look on the right side of this page and you'll see the list of rewards for backing this project. These are unique opportunities to do things like: receive personalized merchandise, have your name or a picture in the album artwork; be a part of the recording process; star in an ATC music video, host a party in which some or all of ATC performs, ... stuff like that.
If we can meet or exceed our goal, every penny raised here will be used in the production, manufacturing, distribution, and promotion for Air Traffic Controller's 2nd album. I started a little indie label, Sugarpop Records, to keep everything organized and utilize this entire resource to make this new album release a success. As you can see below, ATC is no slouch, we've been racking up some nice creds, but we've got a long way to go. We need this next album to keep moving forward!
-- Best Rock/Alternative/Indie Act 2010 - Boston Music Conference
-- "One of Boston's finest independent bands" - WERS
-- Nominated by MTV for Best Breakout Boston Artist Award
-- "One of the Top 10 Boston bands to watch in 2010" - Boston Music Spotlight
-- "The One is the best rock debut of 2010 - no questions asked" - Amplifier Magazine
-- "..this act seems so poised for a mainstream breakthrough." - Adequacy.net
The more we raise, the bigger the release! If the goal is not met, the project will not be funded at all, and you will not be charged a dime. So you've got nothing to lose by pledging ... and these rewards are pretty cool right? You know I will continue making music no matter what, but getting it done right and getting it out there, well.. that's going to make all the difference.
With all my heart.. thanks for checking this out. Now please have some fun and choose your reward!
