Now we decided to finish our first full-lenght album titled "Made of Questions". We have everything figured out: the music, the story, the passion... Except the financial part... That's why we need YOU to help us reach our goal so we can share our passion with the world...

Never

If I Had U

WHY KICKSTARTER?

Because we know who we are, how we want to sound and believe that music should be expressed freely without limitations. That's the main reason we want to stay independent so we can share the music the way we create it. But recording an album is very expensive and we tried to do it by ourselves but we got stuck after recording 4 songs. So we're seeking your help to finish the album...

HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU NEED?

The 5000£ we’ve set is the absolute minimum that we need to finish this album. It usually costs a lot more than that to do all of the marketing and distribution requiered to get this album on the shelves and we didn't even mention what it takes to have a promotional concert and/or tour.

That is the reason why most artists rely on a label to support them but we are trying to do our own thing so we can do what we truly believe in the way we believe it should be done. Without someone changing us or our music. Simply put, the more money we raise the more of that stuff we can do ourselves and we get to cut less corners.The more freedom (financially) we have the more we can give back to you.

Instead of asking for a lot of money, we decided to ask for the minimum that we need.... If we surpass our goal, we will unlock more stretch goals and rewards!

OK, BUT ON WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO SPEND THE 5000£?

The initial goal of 5000£ will cover the bare costs of the following on the remaining 6 songs of the album:

-> Studio time - which includes the recording of the songs, mixing and mastering

-> Additional studio musicians - we do record all our songs ourselves but sometimes we need more "voices" to make it sound even better (back vocals, strings, brass section...)

->The costs to digitaly release our album and an initial small run of CD Duplication

WHAT ARE THE SONGS ABOUT?

About love, joy, passion, lust, jelousy, sorrow and understanding. About everything we are and want to be... Simply put - it's a record about the questions we're having and the journey for our own answer (hence the name!).

WHAT WILL I GET?

Well that's up to you... We made a wide offer of awards and packages from which you can choose from. From a digital download of our already released EP "Prelude to THE ANSWER!" (which you get right away) or our upcoming full leinght album "Made of Questions" to various physical CD packages where you can get a CD, merchandise or special features from which some are an Kickstarter exclusive so this is the only way to get your hands (and ears!) on them...

GREAT, BUT WHO ARE YOU?

THE ANSWER! is a band from Europe (Zagreb, Croatia) that started as a studio project in the summer of 2012 and since then it evolved into a full band. We had our live debut on the international INmusic Festival where we presented our music and since then we haven't stop playing. We perform in an electric and acoustic set-up and if we don't find a place to play we play in the streets (there are people too!). We're very passionate at what we do and we don't take no as an answer!

Our first single is already recieving airplay on a number of radios in the USA, UK and South Eastern Europe. THE ANSWER! was also chosen to be a part of the Indie Top 50 mixtape made by Coast2Coast and became a Featured Artist of the Month on Wilder1Radio. A the moment we are 1st on Museboat's Top 25 Chart with our debut single "If I Had U".

Something that makes us different from other bands is that we record each song in English and Croatian because we're trying to get our voice heard nationally and globally.

THE ANSWER! team:

Michael Brown - lead vocals, keyboards, trombone, guitar
Sauvage de Jour - guitar, keyboards
Matt Skoro - guitar, flute
Rob Sugar - drums, percussion
Ines Tancheva - cover art and logo design 
False Prophets - video
Mr. Twenty - Music Producer
Alen Balja - UK/US Management, Internet/Social Marketing, Fundraising

Risks and challenges

There is a chance that the recording and production time we’ve estimated for this album will vary from the dates we've set, and merchandise delivery requires the involvement of 3rd party vendors and manufacturers. There is always the potential for delays in fulfillment times from each vendor.

We have carefully and thoroughly vetted out all of the moving pieces and timeframes that come with making this Kickstarter project happen, and we promise to do our absolute best to meet every date and deliverable.

We’ll leave it at this: We are fully committed to this project, and no matter what comes our way we won’t stop until we’ve delivered every reward!
