Introduction!

We are Fighting Evil is Cool! A ska/punk band based around Nottingham. We formed around nine and a half years ago and since then have played to all manner of crowds ranging from punk festivals to anime conventions.  

Sadly, we're going on hiatus at the end of the year but before we go we want to put together a great album for you guys, something bigger and better than we've ever done before. However, between the various costs associated with both the recording and production of the album that's something we really need help with achieving, hence Kickstarter!

The Plan!

The album is planned to be at least 11 tracks long with around half of it new, never before recorded stuff, and half songs you'll have heard previously on our EPs (recorded at a higher quality).

We're aiming for a release around Autumn of this year where we'll also do a big album release/goodbye for now gig (date will be announced closer to the time).

Rewards!

If you choose to contribute there are various rewards available, including digital/physical versions of the album, t-shirts and sketches drawn by the band's resident artists.

Add ons!

A few people have asked about getting multiple items, for example a sketch and a t-shirt. This is possible! Kickstarter don't make it easy however. In order to do it you select a pledge level, and add the additional money shown below to your pledge amount.

Debut album: +£5

T-shirt: +£8

Sketch: +£10

An example: You would like a sketch and a T-shirt. You could choose the sketch pledge level, which is £20. Kickstarter automatically adds the relevant postage cost (e.g. £2 in UK). You would then add on the £8 for the T-shirt bring the total to £30. Alternatively you could select the T-shirt pledge level (£18), Kickstarter will add postage (again, e.g £2 in uk), and then you add £10 to this for the sketch bringing the total to £30. Either way round is fine!. If you want all 3, choose one pledge level and add the cost of both other add-ons (so £35 in UK or £38 elsewhere including postage). After the campaign is finished we'll send a message to those who paid extra and ensure you get your add-on. We appreciate it's unnecessarily complicated! Message us if you're not sure.

Anything else?

Yes, although we hope that after a much-needed break the band will get back together there is a chance that this album will be the last thing the band ever records.  This is why we're committed to making it a great one and why your support would mean so much to us.

So, if you do choose to contribute, thank you!

Note on Custom Song pledge level

We've added a new pledge level! You can select a topic and we will write and record a song based around it. Please note the following however:

- The song may only be a chorus in length, and will most likely be done on acoustic intruments,

- The song will be filmed and recorded using a camcorder / PC microphone so it won't be 'studio' quality,

- As many of us as possible will be involved, however it might not be all 6 of us.

- We reserve the right to not sing about overly offensive topics

Message us if unsure!

Risks and challenges

Although the band are going on a hiatus, it's all amicable so there's no worries with us falling out and not getting this recorded.

We're booked in the studio in July, and are hoping to have the album ready for launch in Autumn (hopefully September). However, these things take time so there's a chance it could be delayed a bit. This goes for the production of the other physical rewards too, though hopefully they'll be ready and shipped with the album.
