NEW $50,000 STRETCH GOAL!

Those of you who have seen the band live over the past several years have likely intermittently noted Dick Valentine wearing a cape. There have been a few different versions of this cape. We're not putting any of those up but there will be a BRAND NEW cape made for "Roulette" and once we hit $50,000 we shall once again turn to our old friend the Random Number Generator and determine a winner who shall receive this one of a kind garment. This will be the only "Roulette" cape in captivity, so let's hope we hit the mark.

*****************************************************************************************

EDIT AS OF JUNE 28

$40,000 HAS BEEN REACHED!

OK, so first thing's first...Now that we have reached the stretch goal, it is time for the pledgers to vote. We will film FIVE songs for inclusion on "Roulette" Two of the five slots will be reserved for songs off the new album coming out in October. We can't give you those titles yet but soon enough, soon enough. You, the pledgers, the backers, the CRAZIES, shall decide the other three from a list of the following candidates:  

Night Vision

 Boy Or Girl

Karate Lips  

Horseshit  

Who The Hell Just Call My Phone

 Good View Of The Violence

New Shampoo  

Pledgers may vote by indicating ONE of these songs via Kickstarter message over the next 3 days. Voting will close at 11:59 PM Eastern on Wednesday, July 1. The top three votegetters will be placed in the mix, performed and filmed. Our intention at this point is to film at DIY in Ferndale, Michigan on September 25. This is a show free to the public, so if you want to see a wonderful set and become immortalized on video forevo, join us if you can. Thanky.

*******************************************************************************************

EDIT EFFECTIVE AS OF JUNE 24

We are now offering an "all-in Digital Download" package whereby you will get a digital copy of the film "Roulette Stars of Metro Detroit" PLUS a digital copy of the soundtrack PLUS a  digital copy of the "Dick Valentine Raw" material as well.

Also, ALL PLEDGERS who have pledged for physical disc packages (so that's everyone except for the original $20 digital download package) will get a FREE digital copy of "Roulette" as well as a FREE digital version of "Dick Valentine Raw." That's in addition to the free digital copy of the soundtrack you were already getting.  Keep in mind, the digital version of "Roulette" is a 720P version, so not the same high definition resolution as contained on the Blu Ray version. So again, pledgers in all categories except the Digital Download selection who pledged the additional $20 for the 2 disc set don't have to do anything...you'll get everything digitally as well as physically.

********************************************************************************************

EDIT AS OF JUNE 15 : We have added a "Choose The Cover Plus Live Component" reward package to the offerings on hand. Check the rewards to the right for details.

********************************************************************************************

EDIT AS OF JUNE 9: We've had a few pledgers contact us asking to make "Sexy Trash" available as a bonus add-on in this campaign. We're happy to do so. Unfortunately, Kickstarter limits our ability to change descriptions, pricing, etc. once we've started but the fix for this is similar to the 2 disc bonus set already available.  If you'd like to add "Sexy Trash" to your pledge, simply add $10 to your total and message us via Kickstarter (don't put it in the "Comments" section, please...we won't see it or connect it with your pledge) indicating that you'd like "Sexy Trash" to be added. We'll also get that info from you with survey questions once the campaign closes but hitting us with it a couple of times helps to ensure nothing slips through the cracks when it comes time to fulfill, which believe us is in our best interest as much as it is the pledgers.

********************************************************************************************

The following may be attributed to Dick Valentine:

For over a decade now, fans of Electric Six have been clamoring for a “behind-the-scenes” documentary about the Electric Six. The reasons for never doing one are manifold. There are no scenes. There is nothing to get behind. There is only the cold icy tundra….of reality. And the reality of Electric Six on the road…is six guys sitting there.

Plus, no one watches VH1 Behind The Music anymore. Today’s viewers are interested in opulence, luxury, the caviar and the people, specifically the bitches, that bathe in these things. Bathing in caviar is now known as “reality” and over 70 million viewers have cast their vote. Fantasy is out….reality is in. We no longer want to hear about the heroin needle stuck in Nikki Sixx’s arm. We want to see billionaire housewives drinking too much champagne and stepping on each other’s necks…with 5-inch heels.

Electric Six has taken the hint and is excited to bring you the pilot episode of its new reality television series “Roulette Stars of Metro Detroit”. Now it can be revealed…the boys in Electric Six have spent the last several years at Detroit casinos gambling their way into a life of luxury, and the time has come for you to go behind the scenes to see how they live. You will see dreams realized, money attained, jewels attained, infinity pools attained...bitches tamed.   You will see the rapturous ramparts of reality within which only Electric Six can realistically reside.

"Roulette Stars of Metro Detroit" will be a 45-60 minute near-feature length production, to be embodied on DVD, Blu Ray and digital download. As part of the project, you can bid on fantastic packages, countless opportunities to inject yourself into the reality of Electric Six. Through participating in the making of “Roulette Stars of Metro Detroit” you get exclusivity. You get membership points. And you may even end up at a restaurant, choking on a pork chop, while Percussion World gives you the Heimlich maneuver. It doesn’t get more real than that.

Now, we anticipate the question you're all asking... is this reality…or is this fantasy? The answer…is in the cards….

Electric Six is going all in on you. We need your help this summer to help us help ourselves to some screen time. Help us? We’re Electric Six. We are good at kickstarting ourselves and that’s mostly because of you. We’re all in on you. So sit back, have a cocktail….and watch that ball bounce on the wheel of fate. Dealer goes to the house, house goes to the odds. Everyone’s a winner. Devil gonna get his due….

NOTEWORTHY FEATURES/ELEMENTS/TALKING POINTS

- "Roulette Stars of Metro Detroit" will be a 45-60 minute near-feature length film, written by Dick Valentine and filmed by Tom Lehrer and Tom Nahas,  using the structure of a pilot episode of a series which clearly will never exist. This is a project we've been kicking around in one form or another for several years now, and now is the time. Now is the time to act. Now is the time to make it happen. What you will get as a pledger is that "pilot episode" plus behind the scenes hijinks, outtakes, bloopers, deleted scenes and more as extras. As this is a film project which must be executed when we are available (i.e. not on the road changing your lives one gig at a time), it will take some time to complete. Little bits of this have been done already but the vast majority of filming, all editing and post production work lies ahead. We are anticipating a delivery date of June 2016 of packages to all pledgers. 

- "Roulette" will feature a soundtrack EP by Electric Six. This soundtrack will include at least 5 songs (possibly more by the time we're done) and feature new, original and exclusive material as well as perhaps a remix or two of other Electric Six songs. 

- EVERYONE who pledges will get not only the film in whatever format they choose, but a digital download of the soundtrack included as well, at no additional charge.

- There is a bonus option available on all packages save the "digital download of the film"...this includes a physical two CD set comprised of the soundtrack AND "Dick Valentine Raw." The Dick Valentine disc is a collection of deep demos recorded by the man himself. These are early, embryonic versions of songs you know and cherish, from all of his projects (E6, Evil Cowards, and solo work). They're mostly synth driven and only two include a vocal. The track listing for this one is as follows:

Classon Ave. Robots (Evil Cowards)

Digital Jackass (Became "System Overload" on second EC album) 

Hello! I See You! (with vocals)

I Belong In a Factory 

I Can Translate

I'm Not Scared of Flying Saucers (Evil Cowards) 

Laughing Gas ("Stretching Out The Tunes For Mario" on Here Come The Bags!)

Making Progress 

Miami ("Zombie Zombie Skeleton" from Bite Me songs) 

Rubbin' Me The Wrong Way 

Suitcases (w/ vocals when it was originally intended for a female artist) 

Synth 2 (became Flashy Man) 

Theme from Garage Band 

Tonight Should Have Never Been Tonight 

Waste of Time and Money 

Zora and Nora (Evil Cowards) 

Kickstarter doesn't make it easy on us to deal with options like this, but here there's a pretty simple way to go about it. As indicated in the package verbage, simply add $20 to whatever the pledge amount is for that package if you want the bonus 2 disc set. That will indicate to us that you've requested the CD set. We'll also ask about/confirm it when we send you the post-campaign survey questions. So, it's simple: if you want the bonus CD set, increase your pledge by $20 over whatever the stated price is for the package of your choice and you're all set. Note that for all pledges related to $500 packages and above, the 2 disc set is thrown in for no additional charge, so if you're pledging one of those packages, don't bother with the $20 increase. PLEASE NOTE FOR NON-US PLEDGERS ADDING THE BONUS OPTION: Kickstarter appears to be inconsistently failing to add shipping to these packages when you add in the bonus amount (sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't). In most instances, that shipping charge is $10 so please verify that you are being charged the package amount, the $20 bonus CD set amount and $10 for shipping. If the gliltch gets past you, no worries...we'll contact you directly to adjust. If it's adding the shipping automatically for you the way it should, you're all set. Sorry for the confusion but Kickstarter ain't gonna make it easy on anybody, apparently.

- Many of the packages on offer require travel (either yours or, in most cases, ours). If you're interested in one of these packages but have questions as to whether we can realistically make it happen (due to where you live, where we live, timing, etc) you can email us at electricsixofficial@gmail.com and we'll work through it. We've been fortunate enough in the past to have all similar sorts of packages work out swimmingly for all concerned, so we don't anticipate any issues here. If you have questions, just ask.

- In the past, we've had incredibly generous people who have wished to purchase multiple packages. Kickstarter makes this REALLY difficult, as you've been limited to one package per Kickstarter account. One way around this is to establish multiple accounts with them, using multiple email addresses, but that's unnecessary. Instead, just contact us and let us know what you want to do. We've handled that via the pledger simply increasing the one pledge they've made by enough to cover the cost of the second pledge. It's not ideal but it gets the job done and puts less hassle on your plate. Just contact us first and let us know what you want to do and we'll make it happen.

IMPORTANT NOTE RE: EXCLUSIVITY 

- "Roulette" will be available for purchase only via this Kickstarter campaign. We won't be selling this at merch tables or by mail or via digital downloads (other than those pledged for during the campaign, of course). That goes not only for "Roulette" the film but also ancillary items such as the soundtrack and "Dick Valentine Raw" as well. We do things this way for two reasons. First, it allows us to have a defined set of parameters with which to work...we know our costs, we know our revenue and we know what we have to do in order to complete the project. Second, we like the idea of rewarding those who so graciously opt to support our projects with something which won't be readily available outside of the campaign. We don't cap the number of copies available...if you're interested, you can get it by pledging and we have a number of price points by which to do that. We also run the campaign for 45 days, so there's ample time to get involved if you so choose. Electric Six offers plenty of product which isn't limited in any way. With these projects, we opt to go another route.

Risks and challenges

Risks are virtually nil. We have the resources (or we will if this project is successfully funded). We have the technology. We have the know how, the partners and the old fashioned horse sense to pull this off.

Challenges are the usual ones faced in executing any complicated project. We have great partners (Tom and Tom at Mad Habit Creative) and are confident we can meet our stated timeline for delivery but circumstances can change. On the other hand, we're 2 for 2 in delivering previous Kickstarter campaign products on time, so we believe it to be extremely likely that this one follows suit. Whatever happens, we believe we have a track record of communication between ourselves and fans, so all involved will be aware of progress made and any issues which might unexpectedly pop up in terms of delivery time. At this point, we believe we have built enough into the project's timeline to meet the stated delivery goal.

Our funding goal is slightly higher than in previous projects because the costs involved are higher. Though we're experienced in the art of doing things economically, putting a film together is not inexpensive.

Some may not realize that DaVe is, in addition to being a guitarist and a roulette savant, a bar owner. Long before he owned a drinking establishment, he was a fan of alcohol and all it encompasses. Thus, he has a wide and deep range of knowledge surrounding the art of getting completely destroyed as tastefully as humanly possible and will share that with you as you are squired around the area’s finest bars. You’ll start in Hamtramck at Small’s, the bar DaVe owns, and work your way through an evening you’ll never forget. Leave your worries behind as we’ll provide the designated driver for you and up to THREE of your good time buddies (DaVe will pick up the tab for 1 drink in each establishment you visit). You’ll be responsible for getting to Detroit and your own lodging.

    We'll throw in the bonus 2 disc CD set for free as well on this one.
