Boy Meets Robot Make a Chiptune Rock Album

$892

34

After a year of songwriting, Game Boy programming, and recording, the debut Boy Meets Robot album is nearly finished! Titled The Robots Will Kill Us All, it features seven tracks of geeky chiptune rock that explore such subjects as video games, robots, and Benedict Cumberbatch.

UPDATE: Nerdcore rapper Mega Ran makes a guest appearance on one track.

The steps remaining before release are to mix and master the recordings and pay for duplication/distribution and artwork. Mixing and mastering will be by Noam Wallenberg (co-producer of I Fight Dragons' last album) at Rax Trax Recording in Chicago.

Artwork is by Shroom Arts (shroomarts.blogspot.com). UPDATE: Cover art is finished:

Any level of support will buy a digital download of the finished album, but, if you can give a little more, we're also offering pre-release downloads, physical CDs, and t-shirts. If you're feeling especially generous, R.O.B. will make you a ringtone length Game Boy cover of your favorite song!

Raising $500 will make this project a reality, but if we reach $1500, the album will be fully funded and we can announce some mystery stretch goals!

Thanks for your support!

Keep on bleeping. Don't let the bloops get you down!

Risks and challenges

The album is already recorded, so it's definitely happening one way or another. Your support helps ensure that we can release the best possible product.
