About this project

Chasing Static is a local Buffalo, NY band. We have been working, writing, and playing music since the summer of 2009. To date we have self released 100 to 150 copies of small scale demos that have been self recorded in our singer's basement. Our fans are loyal and we appreciate their support by giving our music away, not to mention playing many shows for free.

Last August, we began recording for a full length album, except this time, we put in the hours and did it the right way. We used good microphones, professional instruments, skilled sound people, and did what at sometimes seemed endless takes to get the songs as perfect as we can.

We are still finishing up recording a few more songs for our 12 track full length album but anticipate finishing the recording process in the early weeks of February. We have a loyal sound man who is doing the mixing of our album, and another to do the mastering. We are very grateful for this, as these skills would require a hefty price if we paid a studio engineer.

Our project goal is to professionally release our album to not only our local supporters in Buffalo, NY, but to the world. Working with Eastco Multimedia in Buffalo, NY we are anticipating professionally pressing our album to CD and having it be a professional grade product. The price will be somewhere around $700 to replicate and produce our CD for about 300 copies. We would like to be able to raise more money, to increase our number of distributed copies, and an additional $50 to release the album to iTunes.
