Rough Shop is completing the recording, mixing, mastering and production of our long-awaited fourth album, "Beneath the South Side Bridge."
With one week left in our first Kickstarter, we have hit our goal of $2500.
We thank each and every one of you who has backed us so far!
We didn't know what to expect when we began this project. We set a modest goal and we are thrilled to have reached it.
But, to tell the truth, our goal of $2500 will cover less than a third of the costs to make "Beneath the South Side Bridge."
We believe it's our best record to date. It sounds and looks amazing -- and it's worth every penny. But those pennies add up.
Here are the numbers. This is what it takes to make a beautiful, self-produced record:
$4000 Recording, mixing and mastering
$700 Artwork and graphic design
$2000 Vinyl LP pressing
$1500 CD pressing
So while we have met our goal, we still need you.
With your support we know we can go far, far over that initial goal of $2500. With your help this album will be a truly fan-funded release, start to finish.
P.S. As a band, we believe in the power of music. We frequently do benefits in our hometown of St. Louis, and we want this new album to make a difference in our community. So, we'll be donating half the profits from the first pressing of the new record to the St. Louis Area Foodbank, a 501c3 non-profit organization in St. Louis that does amazing work.
