Meka Nism to Record and Release "The Shift" EP in 12/2014

The band Meka Nism, of Orlando, Florida, is getting ready to record their second EP entitled "The Shift"! The writing has already begun and will be going into the recording process later this summer. We want to invite you to be a part of the journey. All of the support that we have received since our debut EP "The Dance at the End of the World" has made it possible for our growth as musicians and as a band. We have spent the past several months writing new material and perfecting our stage set to be ready for the road next year. To bring this new project to life, we are fortunate enough to be working with some of the most talented musicians, engineers, and producers in the area. 

 THE GOAL:

In December 2014, we want to independently release our second EP entitled "The Shift"; 5 original songs. But in order to make sure this happens we need your help!

Donating is your way to directly contribute to the creation of this EP, as we are releasing it on our own. Your pledge makes you the most important aspect to the creation of this album.

We need your help to reach our goal of $11,111. We ask that you please share this on social media with friends, family, coworkers, and any one that you can. Every dollar helps. This Kickstarter will be your portal into the experience of creating the new EP. Exclusive video from the studio, backer-only updates, unreleased tracks, rough mixes—you will be able to see and hear it all first!

 Reaching our Goal will make it Possible to:

 - Record/Produce the EP 

 - Commission Album Artwork / Photography 

 - Make Physical Copies of "The Shift" 

 - Promote the New Album 

 - Host an Album Release

 - Prepare for Tour and come to a city near you!

Without you, none of this is possible. We know that this EP is BECAUSE OF YOU!!! Make sure to check our rewards for donating and see what we have in store. We are very grateful for all of the love and support and cannot wait to unleash the new music to the world! It will be revolutionary and the journey begins now!
