Ancient Sun Records "In The Fold"

Ancient Sun is ready to record our first full-length album! As we write and record, we would like to invite you to be a part of this sonic document. All of the support shown to us over the years has made it possible for our growth as musicians and as a band. We have spent the past year writing new music and perfecting some familiar tunes. To bring this new project to life, we are fortunate enough to be working with some of the most talented musicians, engineers, and producers in the area. In conjunction with Jason Woods at TruSound Studios and Craig Holets at BassFuzz Mastering, we are excited to begin working on "In The Fold." 

THE GOAL: 

In September we want to independently release our first full-length album; 14 original songs. But in order to make sure this happens we need your help! 

Donating is your way to directly contribute to the creation of this record, as we are releasing it on our own. Your pledge makes you the most important aspect of the creation of this album. 

We need your help to reach our goal of $6000. We ask that you please share this on social media with friends, family and coworkers, and that you donate anything you can—every dollar helps. This Kickstarter will be your portal into the experience of creating this record. Exclusive video from the studio, backer-only updates, unreleased tracks, rough mixes—you will be able to see and hear it all first! 

 Reaching our goal will make it possible to:

 - Record at TruSound Studios in Orlando, FL 
 - Commission Album Artwork / Photography
 - Make Physical Copies of "In The Fold"
 - Promote the New Album 
 - Host an Album Release 

 Without you, none of this is possible. We have created awesome rewards to give you in return for your support. Check out the side panel to see what we have in store. We are grateful for all of the love and support and cannot wait for you to hear what we have planned. The musical journey begins now!

Risks and challenges

The Risks:

Our main concern is making sure we can release the album on time. Without reaching our goal, the album will not exist. With your help, we assure you that we will meet our deadline in September.

The Facts:
-We have scheduled our studio time.
-We've spoken with Craig Holets to deliver him our tracks quickly and in the format he needs to work his magic and master the record.
-We have lined up a printer that will be able to press the records as soon as we have the final product.

In the weeks leading up to recording we are rehearsing diligently and working hand in hand with our producer to guarantee we deliver a top-notch album.

Our biggest and only risk is making sure we reach our goal. We can make this happen with your support. We have an active fan base and need you to share our music and our Kickstarter as much as you can. We have also appointed a few brand managers to help us promote this more effectively.

We know that this is going to take a great deal of work but we know that we can do this if we all work together.

We would like to say thank you in advance for all of your support, enthusiasm, and patience in helping us make this happen!
