STRETCH GOALS ADDED!!! We're thrilled and very grateful that because of all of you - we've reached our initial goal. But with one week left, we want to make the most of the valuable remaining time. So, we've set up a few "stretch goals":
If we reach $18,000 - FREE STICKER of the album artwork for all pledgers.
If we reach $22,000 - FREE TOURNIQUET LOGO SUNGLASSES for all pledgers. We have never released logo sunglasses - and they will be cool.
If we reach $30,000 - WE WILL RECORD A FULL LENGTH ACOUSTIC ALBUM featuring songs from the new album and past albums. Our last - and only - acoustic album was released in 1997 - almost 20 years ago. If we hit this mark, all pledgers will be the first to receive a free download of the full album. In addition, all pledgers will be able to buy the CD for only $5 plus shipping. We have had a ton of requests for this. We'd love to make it happen! Estimated release if we hit the goal: September 2017
What can you do? If you're already a pledger, you can choose to increase your pledge, or - select a higher reward. If you're not a pledger yet, you can get involved and choose a reward. Thank you! - Ted
A new Tourniquet album is on the horizon. The music is written. It's heavy and progressive. The lyrics, some of the most personal to date, explore the universal themes of triumph and tragedy we struggle with in life. We think you're really going to want to hear this one! Recording will take place in Florida over the next weeks and months. We're aiming for very high production value. Some of the music is quite involved - layered vocals, guitar harmonies, counter melodies, and some crazy drumming.
In order to keep the budget in check, we'll be tracking and recording it ourselves, (as I did with Onward to Freedom) then bringing in the big guns (the pros) to mix and master it. We want to be sure the final result is truly awesome.
We worked hard to structure the rewards to give you things and experiences - value - that you can feel good about pledging. Seriously, we have been so blessed (and hopefully you have been too!) to have you help us achieve three successful Kickstarter campaigns in the past, and we are truly hoping you will join us for this exciting one! The tunes, lyrics, and of course - the vocals - will be top notch. Remember - Kickstarter is wisely set up as "all or nothing" - none of this happens without you. Now go check out the rewards - and thank you! - Ted
Risks and challenges
Since we are offering vinyl on this one, the finished product on vinyl may be slightly delayed as we must bow to the manufacturing plant's schedule. We will do our best to keep it on track. The mixing/mastering is always dependent on the schedule of the person doing it, so again, we will try our best to plan ahead so as not to fall behind...Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
