Brainspoon is a rock 'n' roll band based in the Los Angeles area. We have recorded 11 new songs which are finally ready for release!
At first we thought we would put out a CD, and maybe a single or EP on vinyl. But the dream of having our own actual "record" took hold, and as we realized the cost of a full-length album would be about the same as an EP, decided we could do the whole album on vinyl. In recent years the demand for records has increased, and making a record with a digital download card has become a logical option. The song tracks are all mixed and mastered, so all that remains for us to do is finish the artwork and send the project to the record manufacturer.
The majority of the music was recorded by Will Shanks at Universal Audio near San Jose, and the process of traveling from Southern California to Northern California to record and mix meant it took a long time to get all the tracks finished. It was a crazy way to do things, but we are so pleased with how they sound, it was worth it.
If we can get our project funded with the help of our beloved supporters, our final steps will be to finish up the graphics and send the package straight over to the record magic makers. We can't wait to be able to send our very own record out to YOU! If we exceed our funding goal, we will make CDs also, which some of you may prefer if you gave away your record player in the '90s.
For our fans who have seen us live, some of the songs you will recognize on this album include "The Saint," "Bang Bang," "Down in Flames," "Tattooed Soul," and many more! There are excerpts of some of the songs in our Kickstarter video, and you will also want to watch our YouTube video for "Down in Flames" to hear a full song.
Thanks for checking out our project, and we hope it is something you would like to support.
Risks and challenges
We have completed 90% of what needs to be done for this project; all that remains on our end is finishing the graphics (which includes the album cover front and back, inner sleeve art, and the sticker in the center of the record). We do this ourselves, and have the skills and technology at hand to do it. The music is finished. So once we receive funding, this project will go to the manufacturer within a couple of weeks. From there, it is a matter of how long it takes the record manufacturer to make the records. If any production delays occur, we will keep you informed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
