You love Cobalt & the Hired Guns, Cobalt & the Hired Guns love(s) you, Everybody Wins!
About the band:
We made it through college together
Loved each other through rough family times
Transitions, breakups, marriages
Band members leaving for the coast
We restarted, regrouped, rewrote parts and learned new instruments
We’re a re-invigorated crew, pushing a punchy, exciting sound
We’ve been working and reworking and reworking for 8 years so far
We are nearly done with a full-length record that we promised lots of you would be finished more than a year ago. We have pondered carefully, wrote more and better songs, and met new friends and collaborators that have taken our project to a more exciting level than we ever thought it would be. We are so thrilled about the 8 songs we have finished, and have 4 more we are tackling in the studio now. To say it bluntly, it’s really worth the wait. We appreciate your astounding patience and love and support this far, and we need to ask you for some help to finish the job.
The cost of production of the record has well exceeded our personal financial capabilities, and we’re asking your help. We will be using the money we raise to pay for studio time (at the beautiful Waterdog Studios in Chicago- home of Ralph’s World, if you’re familiar), our amazing Engineer/Producer/Fitness Coach Sean O’keefe, Mastering (makes the boom boom pop), and Pressing of the first 1,000 hard copies of the album (looks prettier than MP3s). We are seriously proud of the work we have already finished, and how much we are growing as musicians, songwriters, and collaborators in the process. Sean has worked on some amazing records (Fall Out Boy, Plain White T’s, Company of Thieves) and we are excited to add our full length record to his catalog.
We’ve got some great prizes to offer you in exchange...exclusive Cobalt & the HGs Kickstarter Tshirts, advanced digital releases, mix cds of our favorite songs, and more.
Everyone who donates will get access to fun exclusive updates as the project continues. There will likely be more videos. Perhaps you’ll hear the story of the Great Shake Weight Race....
We have 30 days! Lets do it!!
