CUSSES LP 2 BAZAAR
A 'cuss' is defined as "a rascal, a tormented animal or person." We want to embrace the rascal within all of us. We want to learn how to grow through life together with a movement of music to help guide and console! We love our community and enjoy bringing magic to it. We feel that this is a great way for us to be apart of something we believe in. We want to touch the world with Cusses. We want the whole world to know it's okay to be a 'cuss.' That it is okay to love rock-n-roll and embrace each other through these moments. We are all CUSSES!
We are a DIY, three-piece rock band rising out of Savannah, Georgia. Since day one we have done everything ourselves. For our debut album we had no help from any record label. The three of us worked hard in the daily grind, knocking down doors, and getting our music out to some of you and into any independent record stores that would have us. It has been hard and our pockets are now dry but with that being said, we still want to move forward and get our music to the world. This is your chance to experience the band and have individualized memories to go with this chapter. Become a part of the band and our record label.
We have a goal of $35,000. This will just cover the recording costs, tracking, mixing, producing, printing, making our next videos for LP2, and the rewards that come with this. We definitely hope to raise more than this!
Anything we make beyond will go into promotions, and getting our music to the rest of the world. It will take our music on the road and cover all of touring costs! We are limitless!
We love being involved in our community and love bringing music and art to this area as much as possible. We have been lucky enough to help locals in Savannah facilitate successful festivals. We love to focus on the children, the artists, musicians, and anyone willing to do something for someone else. If we are successful in our fundraising, we will be putting on another one of these festivals for our album release show! Something you will be able to attend! :)
THIS IS WHERE THE MONEY WILL GO ///Producer//Studio Time//Mixing//Mastering//License Fees//Duplication & Artwork//Printing & Pressing //Press//Travel//Video production//Artists Fees//Prize Supplies//
We love the old rock-n-roll tradition of going into the studio and coming out weeks later with a honest record, true to us as a band. So many bands record at home (which is great) but we want to revel in the ritual of rock-n-roll. Nothing loaded with protools and post edit tricks. We plan on carrying that tradition on with our new LP2.
The first video from our debut album is a good look at us in the studio and on stage. This is "WORST ENEMY"
We have a heavy hand in all aspects of our creations especially our videos. Here is our second video off our debut album "DON'T GIVE IN". For LP2 we want to carry this tradition on but we need your help. One of our prizes allows a couple individuals to be along side of us while we make the new video for "VISITOR" off LP2. You can learn everything that you would like to know and be as involved as you'd like to be!

Risks and challenges
No risks, just challenges!! Though Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing medium after all, so if we can't reach $35,000 then we are back to square one. But we will keep working hard, keep making music, and hope to raise the money at a later date or another way (not a bank robbing way, don't worry:)!
The project schedule is already charted out, the budget is calculated, the studio awaits, and the record presses are ready and willing for when the record is recorded. Provided we meet our goal we'll be on track to finish the recording and deliver vinyl records and all the other wonderful gifts to backers right at the start of 2014.
