Eric and I, Mike TV, are turning to the fans and friends of Get Set Go for a little help funding a new recording project called Television & Summer. It's sorta like a professionally recorded version of our Ustream/JTV shows but with 11 completely brand-new songs. Alas, we're not independently wealthy otherwise we'd just finance this ourselves. This money will go towards the mixing and mastering of the album, Internet distribution, and limited promotion. Should we raise more than our requisite $2,200 then we'll try to leverage that money to get out on the road and tour on these songs.
That's about it. We love all the support we've received in the past. We hope you're as excited as we are about this project. In a few weeks I will post rough mixes of some of the songs. We're going ahead with the recording process, seeing as I can use my personal studio to complete the recording. But in order to get a professional mix I'd like to use the fellow that mixed Fury and all the subsequent ep's. He's not cheap but he's spectacular. As fans of Fury should be able to attest. We're not going to be able to use the fellow that mastered the album however, as that would break our budget, but I have a friend who can do it for us a little bit cheaper and we're planning to use him. All we ask is that you pre-buy the record for 10 dollars. If we get 220 pre-sales we'll have hit our goal and the record will be available via Internet stores by September.
Thanks again! Lots of love,
Mike TV and Eric Summer
