Ten years into our tenure as a band, Vary Lumar is on the cusp of our sixth release. Our upcoming album, title TBA, is our strongest work to date and we could not be more proud.
As we listened to the ebb and flow of the demos, it became clearer and clearer that our intent to create an album, as opposed to a collection of songs, had been realized. We would like to present this album in a manner that encourages the listener to sit and enjoy it as intended: vinyl.
The challenge that we're running into is that making a record alone is an expensive endeavor. When you factor in studio time, mixing, and mastering, the cost of the project is already in the thousands. Adding a vinyl pressing to the bill is pushing us beyond what we can reasonably do out of our own pockets.
Our goal is to raise $2500 for vinyl reproduction with artwork and sleeves in order to present the album the best manner we possibly can. The best part of all of this is we have some great rewards and add-ons in exchange for your generosity! Check out the list below to see what we have to offer:
In addition to our standard rewards, we have an extensive list of add-on offerings. Please add the cost of the desired add-on to your pledge.
Once the campaign is over, you'll receive a followup survey. Please let us know which add-on you'd like so we can make sure we get you the right reward.
Note: For international shipping outside of the US, please add $15 to all non-digital orders.
Risks and challenges
The greatest risk we run with this Kickstarter is the reason we are doing it; if we fail we will not be able to press this album on vinyl. Making an album is expensive business, and it's taking everything we have to afford that on its own. Given the nature of our music and this album-in-progress in particular, we feel strongly that now more than ever is the time for us to make our mark in the true album format and that we are making an album that can truly benefit from the vinyl medium.
In terms of delivery, we are confident that we can meet our estimated goals without a problem.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
