About this project

We, The Bloodroots Barter, are producing our second CD! We are almost done recording the album, and we are looking straight into the beady little eyes of CD production (if it had eyes). There are a multitude of costs that are involved in such a process, such as:

CD Mastering— a must to enhance the overall sound quality of the individual songs and overall CD.

Blank CDs— We are buying premium CDs that are extremely scratch resistant.

Cases— We've decided to get recycled chip board cases from an awesome Portland, OR printer-- Stumptown Printers

CD Inserts— We're getting these from Stumptown also. They use 100% recycled paper. We are getting a 16 page booklet with all the song lyrics and our original artwork printed! 

Printing on Case— Woo! We aren't stamping a thousand CDs ourself this time! Actually, we are stamping the CD. BUT Stumptown is printing our cases full with our songlist, original artwork and the debut cover art by the one and only TURNSTYLE!

Of course, we will be doing a lot ourselves as we are crazy about DIY and to bring down the costs. We are doing our own recording & mixing songs, burning the CDs, printing the CD face with a handmade stamp, art for the case and insert, trading for graphic design, etc. As many of you know, we produced our first CD 100% on our own, but this time we are too busy playing shows to do it all! 

If we can raise $1000 we can produce our second CD without going into debt! Our overall costs are more than $1000, but if we don't make our Kickstarter goal, we don't get any of the pledged amount which is an awesome-no-risk incentive for our friends! By donating, you can get our second CD before it is off the presses as well as other awesome Bloodroots Barter schwag (including some KICKSTARTER ONLY items!). Just view it as a presale... you know you want our new CD anyway! Plus it'll make us feel really stinking happy and special that you would be so generous to such crazy bunch people like us! 

NOTE: If we don't make our $1000 goal, nobody loses any money! Only if we reach our goal does your donation go through. Our costs are definitely greater than $1000, but this is our minimum to make the project a reality. No risk Bloodroots Barter presale!!!

The release date is planned for May 1, 2011. Then we are off on tour to promote our new album. Start looking for us rolling in the mini with the popup camper in your town! Heck, if you donate $1000 dollars we will be rolling up to your door! Let's get busy people! Y'all are going to freak out with this new album. It is a seriously amazing thing for your ears. We are so proud to share it with all our friends! 

OH YEAH!! Kickstarter only allows payments through Amazon! Sorry if you don't already have an account. Don't let it deter you, it is easy to set up!
