How it started.

When we started writing songs for this new album, we talked a lot about how rock music was consumed in the past, how you might sit in a poorly lit room full of smoke with your headphones on and trip out on the music while staring at some cool artwork. That's how we wanted people to be able to enjoy this record...not only a collection of songs, but our contribution to an experience.

What's the plan?

To fund the release of Bloodcow's 4th full length entitled 'Crystals & Lasers' on multiple formats including vinyl, cd, and digital download.

Where we are right now.

We were fortunate enough to record at ARC in Omaha, NE with uber engineer Jim Homan and also in the science lair of uber producer Aaron Gum. All the music is in the can (that's music business lingo) and we have since mixed 3 songs. We have album and CD artwork finished and are coming up with the sticker and T-shirt art as you read this.

What are you funding?

Remainder of mixing with Jim Homan.
Mastering at TurtleTone Studio with Mike Fossenkemper.
180 gram Vinyl Records.
CD Digipaks.
Digital download cards.
Stickers
Kickstarter only T-shirts.
The Kickstarter/Amazon fees that have to be paid in order to run this campaign.

What if the goal is surpassed?

We have ideas in place to record a music video with Aaron Gum involving drag queens in an awesome club setting...and yes that was totally serious.

Risks and challenges

All the songs for the album are recorded and some of the songs are mixed. If we aren't successful in funding this project not only will it delay the release of the album but it will limit us being able to release it on vinyl as well as CD and download and Xenu will be angry with us.
