Preorder The Broadcast's NEW Album "From the Horizon"

$21,626

Hi Everyone!

 

We're The Broadcast, a 5-piece female fronted soul rock band from Asheville, NC. Fresh off the plane from our month long recording session in Los Angeles with multi grammy award winning producer Jim Scott (Tedeschi Trucks Band, Grace Potter, Tom Petty, Johnny Cash), we're so excited to announce that our brand new album "From the Horizon" is now available for preorder! 

We've spent the last three years touring full time performing nearly 600 shows in over 80 cities, all booked independently by us. We've rocked out to audiences ranging from 10 and 10,000, opened for legends like Charles Bradley and George Porter Jr., slept on couches and shared motel rooms more times than we can count...and through it all we LOVE it.

After a series of serendipitous events last year, we connected with our dream producer, Jim Scott. Jim discovered our self-made music videos on YouTube, which led to an invitation for us to record our new album at his private recording studio, Plyrz Studios, in Valencia, CA. What a dream it was.

WHAT IS KICKSTARTER?

Kickstarter is a way for our fans to purchase our album in advance which will in turn help us finance the release to a much wider audience. This website seemed like the easiest and quickest platform for our fans to make an immediate impact on the outcome of our dream. It's also a way for us to keep track of all the awesome people investing in us so that we can send exclusive album teasers leading up to the release! 

WHY ARE WE DOING A KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN?

Point blank: it costs a LOT of money to release an album properly in today's world. Vinyl/CD reproduction and packaging, marketing, distribution, radio promotion, advertising, and publicity, when done right and all at once, are expensive. The money that we've earned from touring has barely covered expenses this year and is totally not enough to finance a large scale record release (which is what we are aiming for this time!)

Your investment in our Kickstarter Campaign will go DIRECTLY toward the following finishing touches on our new album "From the Horizon":

-Mastering (digital, CD & vinyl)
-Art Design
-Reproduction & Packaging
-Merchandising
-Distribution
-Publicity
-Promotion
-Professional Radio Campaign

CAN I JUST WAIT UNTIL THE RECORD IS IN STORES?

This presale is SUPER important because you'll be supporting us in the most direct way possible. Your support shows the world and music industry that The Broadcast are a band worth believing in. To be totally honest, the only thing holding us back from reaching a higher level of musical success is money. We don't have a record label or a marketing budget to get our songs played on the radio, so we need your help NOW versus later to make our dreams come true.

It's very difficult for an unsigned band to be taken seriously by major radio, television and music festivals. This is where you come in. Everything we've done so far has been with your help. Touring bands matter. Good music still matters and it is still being made today. Help us show that to the world. The funding of our Kickstarter means giving five hopeful dreamers who still believe in the spirit of rock & roll a fighting chance of being a worldwide success.

Consider being our record label and in return you'll be the first to receive our album and/or get exclusive thank you gifts! We aren't asking for a handout, but instead asking you to preorder "From the Horizon" so that we can make a timely reinvestment in the release of this record. Its finished, recorded and mixed. Now, we just need your help to get out into the world!

 As independent artists, having your continued support has been critical. There is absolutely NO way we'd be able to survive without fans like you. Throughout the band's existence, we've done almost everything independently, meaning that we've come this far without support from a management company, booking agency, or record label. Consider us the text book definition of a 21st Century DIY band!

For us to be able to continue touring and also recording albums is a dream come true that reflects the outpouring of support we have received from our fans across the Southeast region and beyond throughout the years. SO MANY of you feel like family to us. This Kickstarter campaign is a way we can continue to remain independent, while allowing you to share in the dream to help get our music out into the world in 2016.

                  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

Risks and challenges

We appreciate your patience! :)
