No labels... No investors... We want the next Ra record to be for the fans, by the fans!

Hello World... Sahaj from Ra here. We are going to do a new Ra record this summer and I've been in talks with several labels all of which have made offers to fund our newest effort. The problem hasn't been the offers but the atmosphere of fear that each meeting has shown me. Having been on Universal/ Republic records for 5 yrs we are very aware that this fear has affected both small and large labels. Ra is an entity that exists somewhat outside of the record industry although we have sold 400,000cds over our career. We feel the best way to succeed with a new record would be to make it ourselves, with the help of our fans and then to partner with a label for promotion and marketing. That said, we are trying to keep the album cost to a minimum and get it done as quickly as possible. If we can reach our goal it will cover the studio and travel cost associated with bringing out the guys to LA to work with me. I've tried to come up with exciting offers for those willing to pay $20 or more! Check it out and don't forget to say hi to us on the Ra Official facebook page! Thank you all so much and let's get to it!!
