Hello, we are Robots and Racecars and we would like your help with recording our next full length album. We have been working hard for a while now and have most of the new album written, we just need help funding it. If you haven't heard of us yet, please check out some of the links below to get to better know us. You'll find that we are hard working and enjoy making music and talking to our fans. Also, be sure to check this page often as we will be updating on the project status weekly.

What we want to do: In 2007 we released our first full length album titled We Can't All Be Astronauts. In 2008 we released a follow-up EP titled Fighting Nessie. Since then we have been working hard building a fan base, playing shows and working on new songs. It's time to release another full length album and need help funding it.

The plan: We have some songs written now but still need to write more and fine tune the other ones. From that point we would like to track, mix and master the album with Bruce Wiegner at Overlook Studios. We would then have the CD pressed and made ready for distribution with Ultra Entertainment. Finally, we would distribute ourselves via online stores and at the shows that we play. The biggest part to this plan is the funding from the thoughtful backers, such as you.

What the money is for: $1925.00 - All costs associated with getting a retail ready CD $1325.00 - All expenses associated with backer rewards and fees $3250.00 - Total

Closing: Thank you for taking the time to read about our project. We truly have been working extremely hard and it would mean a great deal if you would help fund this project. To learn more about us please check out the links below:

Thanks again, Robots and Racecars
