The unreleased new album from the Nocturnes comes out on vinyl, cd and on tour.
We would like to offer you advance copies of Aokigahara (on MILKY WHITE VINYL--YUM or on CD) in exchange for help in sending us on tour and to promote this release.
This kickstarter is like a pre-order but with more opportunities for people to obtain handmade artwork (http://resentthatdiscontent.blogspot.com/) , personal items, limited first edition copies as well as a chance to build a relationship with the band in the sense that you will always be first on the list when it comes to free songs and promo stuff. Among the rewards you will see some limited prints of the original artworks from "Year of Spring," these are just for this Kickstarter and will not be sold on my blog or anywhere else. By contributing to this kickstarter you will be sent free downloads to singles and remixes as they come out in relation to this record. We are sitting on a few b-sides and have plans to release those later in the year. When they come out you will be the first to know and will get them for free.
I'm resurrecting the Nocturnes with a new healthy line up, and a new album recorded and produced by the Nocturnes and the marvelous Marty Rifkin. We are officially putting this album out on August 30th but are offering it, as well as some limited items, to you guys ahead of time in order to raise funds for us to tour and funds to help us promote and repress the record.
We already have the first edition of 250 fresh copies of this album on white vinyl and on regular cd ready to hit your mailbox. The packaging for both the cd and the vinyl is simple: a record/cd in a full color sleeve or jacket.
There will be no waiting time while the record gets made or anything like that- all the rewards are here and ready to go once the project gets funded which means records and art ship the day after the project clears. If you pledge, you get sent the download right away- so you get the digital copy whether or not the project gets funded.
Contribute to this kickstarter at any level and you will be sent a link to a sendspace where you can download the full album THE NEXT DAY... not after the kickstarter ends - but the day after you pledge. This means no waiting to hear the whole album. Once this kickstarter ends the album will not be available again until after the release date in August.
$2000 will cover the cost of having pressed this record and will be a start to getting us on the road but we are hoping to far surpass the funding goal so that we can pay for proper merch and repressing.

Please visit the galleries of pieces by ERR that are being listed as rewards. You can access the galleries via her blog:
The Nocturnes are:
Emma Ruth Rundle/Paris Patt/Julian Rifkin/Dave Clifford
We will be announcing tour dates in early August.
(HAVE YOU ALREADY DOWNLOADED THE ROAD + REMIXES FOR FREE? if not go to out bandcamp HERE: http://thenocturnes.bandcamp.com/album/the-road-single-and-remixes )
Simply pledge for both and we can sort out shipping it all to you.
Most of the prints and original pieces come framed and with a download of the album. The U.S. price is what is listed- there is a note at the bottom of each gallery that will ask you to contribute an additional amount to have things shipped outside the U.S.
We mark off which pieces are spoken for but not all pledges are set in stone. If you see a piece you want that looks taken, send me an email and if it becomes free you will be the first in line for it.
Navigate to the piece you want, copy its title and send it in a message to us through kickstarter with your pledge. This way we can mark them off as they are spoken for. Please note that the prices listed are for within the U.S. There will instructions at the bottom of each gallery as to how much you should add to the pledge price should you want to have a piece shipped outside the U.S.
Also- please read the note about pledge flexibility. If you can pick a piece up or want it unframed- you can have it for less!
Shipping costs are exponentially greater when it comes to sending things outside the U.S., which happens to be where we are located.
They come with a download.
