Five Mile Town Studio Album Pre-Order
The full cost of recording our dream, 12-song album is $12,200. However, we're hoping to raise $7,000 for the album through this Kickstarter Pre-Order Campaign. Here is the full cost breakdown:
- $11,000 for recording and producing at Zion Studios in Santa Ana, CA.
- $1,200 for the mixing and mastering in Nashville, TN.
- Anything given over and above our goal will be used strictly for band expenses like CD production, album art, and a band photo shoot.
Our producer and the mixer are so impressed with what we've showed them that they've already given us discounted prices (most notably covering half of our mixing and mastering costs - originally $2,400)! This is where you come in: we are confident our new album will undoubtedly tickle your musical fancies and we need your pre-order purchase to put this ear candy "on the shelves"!
We have the skill, we have the passion, we have the music, and you can complete us by pre-ordering our album on Kickstarter! We've teamed up with "iCarly" star, Nathan Kress, to create a Kickstarter campaign to help make our dream of recording a full-length album a reality. Kress, the lovable "Freddie" on Nickelodeon's hit show "iCarly" and star in the upcoming New Line Cinema film "Category Six" has helped us put together pre-order packages sure to make any friend or fan of Five Mile Town and "iCarly" happy. Check them out and make us even happier by pre-ordering our new album!

About Five Mile Town
2002 was a dark year in our history. The dot-com bubble burst, cruel dictators were roaming around the globe scot-free, and Whoopi Goldberg had to be called in to host the Academy Awards for the 47th time. It was chaos.
But often it is in times like these – times which try men’s souls – that something special will rise from the ashes. And in 2002, that “something special” was a ragtag band of musical misfits from the sprawling suburbs of Los Angeles. They couldn’t know it yet, but their brand of clean-cut, straight-up pop-and-punk would show the world a side of rock-and-roll it had never seen before.
Like most things worthwhile, their venture didn’t begin with fame or fanfare, but with hard work. Weeks became months, months became years, and what started as a cacophony of clangs and chords soon became real music. By 2006, the quartet known as Five Mile Town had left their mark on the local scene and released their first E.P. – “Hurray For the Hometown Heroes.” The next year saw a change in lineup, swapping drummers and incorporating a new dynamic of synth.
Poised to ascend to new heights, the group won the acclaim and attention of industry insiders and outsiders alike. Fans watched them conquer multiple “battle of the bands” competitions in the musical hotbed of LA, heard them spun on the radio (KROQ), and even pushed their single “Flavor O-E” to the #1 most downloaded song from an unsigned artist on PureVolume.
The band forged onward and released their sophomore album “Fifteen Minutes of Fame” in the summer of 2008. Despite the warm reception to the record, distractions of “real life” slowly tore the boys of FMT away from their common passion for rock.
But only for a time.
Because much like a decade ago, 2012 is a year of deep fear and uncertainty. The world is desperate for something special to happen. And just like a decade ago, Five Mile Town is answering the call. This is more than just an album. This is more than just music. This summer, FMT is giving the world something it can believe in.
