About

Broken 8 Records is a rising, independent music site dedicated to promoting, reviewing, and supporting some of the most talented independent artists and bands around. Founded in 2016, we've since grown to become one of the best places for new artists to get noticed and build the audience they deserve. Notching up an impressive reputation for high quality work and outstanding customer service, we're constantly looking for new ways to support the bands that major labels seem to ignore.

After building a loyal fanbase online, we've been looking to expand, taking our brand from an online imprint into something more. Our ultimate goal is to become a fully fledged label, somewhere that all artists and bands can be found, be heard, and be appreciated.

While business has been good, we've currently been putting, on average, about 85% of our profits into maintanence and advertising, looking to build a bigger audience for the artists we work with. Using our own money, we've been able to start our Merch Store, a small online imprint where we stock signature drumsticks, guitar picks, stickers, and gift cards.

It's a good start, but now we're looking to expand even further. To do this, we're introducing our first range of signature apparel so that we can raise enough funds to evolve into a fully functioning label that will support the independent artists in bigger and better ways!

This campaign is our first forray into the world of Kickstarter and proper merch. We've done the research, put in the hard yards, and built up a line of designs that we're proud to present. Simple, bold, and timeless, they're designs that we hope you'll like and be proud to wear. Everything will be made using quality As Colour products.

One of the main features of our new merch line is our signatures tees. Made in two different fits, crew neck for men and v neck for women, the tees come in black and white, and in three sizes. Available now with every pledge of $25.

Our signature men's t-shirts in black. From R-L: Classic, Front, Cross.  Available in sizes S to XXL.

Finally, to finish off our first-run range of aparel, we're also looking to produce beanies and snapbacks which will be available with pledges of $20 and $25 respectfully.

Along with the apparel, we are also aiming to produce tote bags and travel bags, perfect accompaniments to finish off your wardrobe. The tote bags will be available in black and white for $20 each, while the travel bags can be yours for just $75.

For those of you looking to help pledge to our goal, but not quite sure you wont to spend $20 or more, we also have a brand new series of Broken 8 Posters, available now as a special thank you for pledges as low as $5.

As with all our online promotion services for artists, we're aiming to keep profits to a minimum so you get the very best value. Because of this, we're looking to get as many backers as possible to make this expansion happen, and anything you can do to help, even just sharing our campaign, will be greatly appreciated!

Risks and challenges

We understand that there are always some risks with expansion, particularly when it comes from taking a digital company to physical merchandise. We've started slow, building bit by bit, and now we're ready to make a big move in 2019!

We've already got designs, costs, and production in place, putting all the hard work in to minimise the risk to you and ensure that we can make this leap into the future together.
