About this project

Hi! We're Bloodshot Dawn! An independent Melodic Death Metal band from the UK! We released our debut album in January 2012 and have played tours across the UK, Europe, India & Japan - all self funded and self managed! From the success of our first album we have been voted best independent band 2 years running in Terrorizer magazine, and have able to tour with some incredible bands, in incredible places (pretty much all of them being heroes of ours!!). Bands such as Scar Symmetry, Decapitated, Vader, Aborted, Wintersun, Fleshgod Apocalypse, and more! And on top of all this, we have had the best support from the best fans, all over the world! Without you guys, none of this would have been possible! Thank you! <3

With this in mind, we want to see what we can achieve together, both us and you, the fans, funding the recording of our new album to make something absolutely HUGE!

We are really excited about the new music, and can't wait to share it with you! The songs are almost finished and they are sounding EPIC! We want to make sure that the production of the album sounds just as intense as the songs are, and with your help we know this album will sound crushing! 

We are hoping to record the songs during July this year and then being mixing and mastering of the album at the beginning of August with the planned release date being October 25th 2014!

This is an ALL-OR NOTHING platform, so if we don't reach our target your money will be refunded, but we won't be able to fund the recording or to give you guys all these cool rewards! So please spread the word about this kickstarter to make sure this album becomes a reality!

On the other hand, if we exceed our total we will be able to make this album even bigger, and give you guys more awesome rewards! Our fund target is solely to pay for mixing & mastering (we have the money to make the rewards!), but if we can beat that target we can make the album even better in other ways too!... More epic music videos, more tours to see you guys on the road, a professional press campaign, and more exclusive merchandise items! I'm sure we can think of some other crazy stuff to do too ;)

We have some AMAZING GUESTS lined up for album 2! 

We are so excited about having these guys contribute to the album that we feel all warm and fuzzy inside - Vocals from Sven De Caluwé (ABORTED), and guitar solos from Chris Amott (Ex-ARCH ENEMY), Per Nilsson (SCAR SYMMETRY), Teemu Mäntysaari (WINTERSUN) & Andy James (Previously of Sacred Mother Tongue)!!!

*Album will not come with a change of pants, but we recommend you have some handy.

There's some AMAZING ARTWORK too!

We have already begun funding the album ourselves as well, and have just received the finished album art from Pär Olofsson, who did an amazing job with our first album, and has done it again! Check this beast out!

Pär Olofsson is da bomb!

Delicious Rewards for your funding!

Of course, if you want to invest in the album we have some pretty cool and unique rewards available for you guys, so make sure you check them all out in the reward list at the side of this page! If we beat our target we will be adding more items too! We are already hoping to add Vinyls and Tab books, but we have some other crazy ideas if we exceed our goal! 

The Exclusive T-shirts, Posters & Patches available will only be made for Kickstarter backers and will feature the album art! These will never be printed this way again (as it's mad expensive to make!) but we want to give you guys something really special for your support! The final designs including the Bloodshot Dawn logo and album name will be shown very soon!

All project backers will be thanked in the digital album book, and if your pledge is £25 or more, your name will also go into the physical album thanks list!

Here are some extra details on the more unique rewards we have available:

  • You could be drawn into the album artwork by Par Olofsson!!!

Risks and challenges

We have made sure to set a schedule for the album's recording, promotion, and release, so we are feeling pretty prepared and have deadlines set for each stage of the album's creation.

However, we will be subject to our collaborators schedules too (recording studios, merchandise printers, press/magazines, guest musicians, etc.), so our main challenge is making sure everyone can meet those deadlines. Should we have any delays we will of course update you on the situation and let you know how it is being handled!
