Abel has been a band now for almost 3 years, and in that time we've been privileged to record and release two albums; tour across the United States; and meet and share our music with thousands of amazing people.

Last September, Abel partnered with Come&Live! to give away our first full-length album, Lesser Men, and since then we've given away over 12,000 copies to people all over the world. Being part of Come&Live! has been an amazing experience learning to be a band that puts generosity first in all we do.

In January 2012 we will be travelling to Atlanta, Georgia, to record a brand new full-length record. Through Kickstarter we are asking for your help in raising $10,000 needed to track and mix the album. Any additional giving will help pay for the mastering, printing, and publicity for the record, as well as living and travel expenses for the month of January.

For those who donate we have created give-aways and incentives that will include you in every part of the album making process.

We are very passionate about the new music we have written and its potential to reach people on a very personal level. Thank you for your generosity and consideration in helping us make that music a reality.

FAQ

  • Unfortunately, we won't be able to provide airfare for travel, but if you live close to the New York or Atlanta metro areas, we'd be glad to come pick you up!

  • You will not be charged unless we reach our goal of $10,000. Once this milestone is reached and the campaign has ended, your credit card will be charged for the amount of your pledge. We ask that you sign up using an e-mail that you check often, in case your card bounces at the time of charge.

    Last updated:
  • If we don't reach our goal of $10,000, we will not receive any money and no one will be charged for their pledge. Unfortunately, we will also not be able to record our new record in January.

  • We will do our best to deliver any and all incentives once the album has been completed in January. For personal performances and hang-outs with the band, we will deliver these at the time most convenient to all parties involved.

  • If you feel the need to donate outside of Kickstarter, for whatever reason, you may PayPal a donation to abeltheband@gmail.com with the word "Kickstarter" as the subject-line. Otherwise, just encourage everyone you know to sign-up and donate!

  • If for some reason you would like to reduce or increase your pledge amount, you can do so by simply logging into your Kickstarter account. If you do need to give less, please be considerate and do not reduce your donation right before the campaign ends. We will gladly refund any money after the fact.
