After touring the US on our own for the past 3 years, nearly 400 days on the road, we are determined to release our next album with your help!

Hi everyone,

For those you of who don't know us, we're Blameshift, a rock band from Long Island, NY. We returned home late November 2009 after touring for the past 3 years to begin writing a new album. In mid-January of this year the entire band flew out to Anaheim, CA to attend the NAMM show. While we were there we got to meet with some awesome producers. We are trying to raise enough money through kickstarter to move out to LA for the month of May, and record our new album with some of the most talented producers out there. Our goal is to raise at least $5,000. However, if we don't reach our goal we get nothing. So please donate anything you can. Every single dollar gets us closer!

As an additional incentive, if we reach our goal, Blameshift will take 20% of the funded money over $5000 and donate it to the Haiti Relief Fund and Music Saves Lives!

Thank you again for being a part of our next album and please help spread the word about our fundraiser to your friends!!
