Hi.  We're Afore Notation, and we want to record our EP titled "A Story Of Skies, A Voyage Of Stars".  This is a concept EP, consisting of stories written by the band and our vocalist Garrett about a boy with super-natural powers.  Every song will tell a part of the boy's journey;  from his hardships, triumphs, defeats, to battling his inner demons.  The overall goal with this first EP is to be the start of a series.  We not only love music, but we appreciate the wonders of art, and fictional story-telling.  You might think we're geeks, nerds, dorks, whatever.  But we think we're bad-ass, and we want to share our bad-assery with more bad-asses who do bad-ass stuff.

     But we're trying to do so much more.  We serve as the catalyst of a new wave of rock music, and we want you to be a part of it.  You're not only funding the EP, but our destiny!  We've been training really hard, but villains hinder us at every path!  We need more heroes (you!!!) to pave the way for victory.  If we succeed, you get the spoils!  Tales of your exploits will spread across the land to every town, village, and kingdom!  Afore Notation is more than a band, it's an epic to unfold, and we want you to be there every step of the way.  So what do you say?  Will you join our party, level up, and defeat the bad guys?  Or will you succumb to fear, and leave our heroes to their doom?!  Our fate is in your hands!
