Half Past Two "Camp Slushtone/Mastering Karate" 12" Record

$2,250

81

***UPDATE JULY 20, 2017***

We've hit our third goal of $1,500 and all physical packages will now include a Camp Slushtone pin! For our fourth goal:

- At $2000, we will select a random backer to receive a custom song!  You pick the topic (subject to band approval) and we'll write and record a song about it for you!

Thank you for your continued support!

About Us

Half Past Two has been a staple in the Orange County ska scene for over ten years.  We've released four albums/EPs, toured CA and NV with Reel Big Fish, headlined local venues including House of Blues Anaheim and Chain Reaction, and opened for many of our favorite bands including The Aquabats, The Selecter, Rx Bandits, Bad Manners, The Toasters, and more.

About the Project

We've just finished our fifth record, "Camp Slushtone", and are getting ready to release it online and on CD on July 22nd.  It's been a longtime dream of ours to put out our music on vinyl and we know that time has finally come.  Our very first 12" will include the brand new EP "Camp Slushtone" plus our last EP "Mastering Karate" for a total of twelve tracks. Unfortunately, vinyl is very costly to produce so we need your help to make up the difference we still need to make it a reality.

We've set our funding goal at a bare minimum, but any extra funding we receive will go towards improving the project and adding bonus items to packages.  Stretch goals will be announced if they become a possibility! Whether you can donate a little, a lot, or just share this page with your friends, we're grateful for the support.

Risks and challenges

We can honestly say there is zero risk! The recording is already 100% done including mixing and mastering. All that's left is submit our master and artwork to the CD printer and and vinyl pressing plant. This being our 5th record, we are ready to meet all the demands of fulfillment.
