Thanks for visiting our Kickstarter page!

Back in 2004, we began writing material for what would become our debut album. It's a sprawling concept, telling our musical interpretation of the book Ethan Frome, by Edith Wharton. It's an album built around and comprised of, emotions. And we are supremely proud of it.

In 2006, we released our Amidst Her Shadows EP, which contained early versions of the songs Foreword and Revelries & Silence, the first two tracks of our album. It's been a long journey, but the time is finally (finally!) right for us to record and release the rest of that album.

Make no mistake, we are not asking for you to completely fund our album. We've seen Kickstarter pages asking for multiple THOUSANDS of dollars and while it may cost us that much in the end, we realize that times are tough and no one has much money to throw around. But that goes for us as well, so we're just asking for a small contribution to our cause.

Where will the money go?

1 - Recording, mixing and mastering of our album. We have between 75 and 80 MINUTES of material written for this project. In order for us to record this album the way we would like (in as high of a quality as we can), it can cost anywhere from $200 to $500 A DAY in studio costs.

2 - Artwork and packaging. We would like to put together as much of the packaging as we can ourselves. We feel this will help create a unique and personalized presentation, that will also cut down on processing costs. But we still have to purchase materials, get CDs pressed, pay an artist to paint (yes, PAINT) our cover and find someone to screen-print the artwork and booklet.

3 - A very small portion goes towards Kickstarter and the perks we are offering for pledging (like shipping costs). 

How does Kickstarter work?

Kickstarter is a unique fundraising platform in that each project (like this one) has an "all-or-nothing" style: we either meet and exceed our $600 goal, or no money changes hands. You choose any donation amount, picking from the list to the right, which has cool rewards for you. We'll post updates along the way so you will be involved in the whole process! 

Could we do this without help? Probably, but it would take more time. We don't want that. So we urge you to become a part of Clad In Darkness history and donate to our cause!
