About this project
Help Fund the Making of the Music Video and Art for the Upcoming Album
Intro from Josh (Figure)
In between tour and massive work getting DOOM Music ready for the world, been working like a madman to develop what will be a full album for Spring/Summer 2012. "Mission of Destruction" is the Electro prequel to the drumstep monster "Must Destroy," and the perfect track kickstart the development of the art and music video we hope to drop along with the full album release.
I want to keep as much as the music available to everyone for free. But free still comes with a price.
There's a whole team of artists that contribute to every track... everyone from the mastering engineer that perfects the sound to the graphic artist that make everything look badass. Launching a kickstarter to raise money to produce the music video and art for the upcoming album, as well as to keep feeding the gremlins behind the scenes.
If you can't kick in some dough, maybe kick in a second of time to spread the word.
UPDATE- Contributing Artists
We are excited to unveil the stunningly talented visual artists that we have lined up for Figure's first album and music video.
Joyce Su - Graphic Design
For our graphic design, we have requested Joyce Su to provide her killer eye for our art once again. We value Joyce as a member of the team because her work at any level tops everything else we have found. Our biggest problem with Joyce is that she is too humble, and deserves more support and credit than she receives.
Christine Larsen - Illustrations
If we can fund the kickstarter, Christine Larsen will create original illustrations for each song that translate into a complete and 100% original Figure comic strip. Christine's work across the entertainment industry provides an artful perspective for everything from Kung Fu Panda to Figure's Beetlejuice Remix Art.
Mavskegg- Music Video
Edward's style is the perfect way to communicate more about the way that Josh thinks about the release, wrapping a song up in a fuzzy, 1950's action/horror movie. The 3D modeling of the music video is very time consuming, and we are excited to have Edward putting in the effort!
Bleeding Star Clothing- T-Shirt
Bleeding Star has been on the cutting edge of street fashion for over 7 years now, having gotten their start in Nowhere, Idaho and grown from a hometown hero shop into the phenomenon they are today. Sound familiar? We are big fans and so stoked that Bleeding Star has agreed to provide a limited edition Figure tee for this release. The shirt presale is already available at several supporter levels.
And, there you have it folks, a 4 incredibly worthy, and usually almost invisible, artists that we need on the team for Figure's first album. Please check them out and support our work together.
Figure's loyal legions are built on his dedication to providing top-shelf free music and attainable live events to dub- and drum- step addicts around the world. As the universe expands, the music world continues to grow- over the bones of the old music industry, Figure is building a new standard on a foundation of community support.
The Music Should Be Free
If you peek behind the curtains of The Figure Workshop you will find a full team of monsters working to produce the art, visuals, ideas, and sounds behind every Figure release. We want to keep as much of the music as free as possible, but we need your help if you value this work. During the course of this campaign we will be showcasing some of the artists that make the sound look so good.

Yes! When we first put this together, we had no idea what people would want. If you have any ideas or would like to see something not listed, send us a message:
Stay tuned! We're going to be issuing updates as video director, illustrators, and graphic designers deliver sketches. We want to include you in the creation process.
At the end of this Kickstarter thing, we will send out a questionnaire and you will be able to pick whatever size that you want.
Glad you asked! The project will only be funded if the goal is reached. If that doesn't happen, we wont be able to make any of the rewards you see listed and your pledge amount will not be charged. :(
