Dear Friends!

We want you to be among the first to know that we are working on a great musical project! The upcoming album Amoris Orbita (love orbit), scheduled for release on 08/23rd. On that date, Suns of Orpheus is being honored by the City of Austin, as it will be declared Suns of Orpheus'  day.  We are totally humbled and excited about the whole thing and want to share this excitement with you while also asking for your crucial participation in this campaign.

Needless to say, we are on a tight deadline. We have all the tracks recorded and now we are mixing and mastering the album. We have been saving diligently from our concert funds and invested from our personal savings.  We have a vision and a strategy in place to share our positive blend of International Psychedelic Pop with a growing number of friends all over the world.

But first, we must share it with you! Simply put, it would be cool if you bought the album in advance directly from us, at any level (EP, Digital Download, Autographed copy, official t-shirt, etc.), so that we can fund the costly and crucial post-production phase of Amoris Orbita.

We chose to run a Kickstarter campaign because it is a perfect venue for creative projects to reach and build a community. That is why we ask that you help us by doing 3 things:

1. Choose an incentive on the right side of the screen. You can pay with any major credit card, anywhere in the world. Outside US: Please note that there are additional shipping charges for mailing autographed Cd's, Posters and t-shirts abroad.

Choose S,M,L,XL - Mens or Ladies - 100% Cotton
Choose S,M,L,XL - Mens or Ladies - 100% Cotton

2. Share our Kickstarter campaign with other friends!

3. Visit www.sunsoforpheus.com and sign our email list! We'll keep communication to a minimum, but we would like to communicate with you on special occasions.

While costs to release a record have decreased over the years due to more accessible technologies, the costs for a professional product are still prohibitive for most independent acts. Take a look at the budget example below. These figures are on the 'cheap budget' end:

Recording Sessions:  $ 2000

Mixing and Mastering: $1800

Total (on the cheap): $11,500.00

Your contribution today will be helping us to achieve very important goals, such as  CD Manufacturing, Merchandise, Legal fees, Marketing-Promotion and Tour support.

We truly believe in what we are doing and we are excited that you are participating in this process with us! May all of your positive vibes and investment come back to you tenfold! Thank you! Muito Obrigado! Muchas Gracias! Grazie Mille! Merci! Arigatô, Dankeshoen, Xièxiè, Shukran, Todah, Namaste!
