Figure is brewing his Debut Album and first Music Video- liberate the music & launch the mission in one fell swoop.

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.

If you've seen the Figure art, you're already familiar with her work.

____________

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.

Why Kickstart?

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.

The Gremlins Gotta Eat

Pledge to support the creation of the music video and art for the upcoming album release so we can keep feeding the spooks behind the scenes.
We are shooting for a goal of 14,950.00 USD, the estimated amount needed to compensate the supporting artists for the filming, production, and distribution of the music video, the creation of album art and graphics, and the manufacturing of the various rewards for pledges.

The Goodies For Those with Two Shoes

Every package includes an advance screening of the music video and all support over $15 will receive the full digital album before the release date.

Huge thanks to everyone reading this, we made our package levels fun browsing regardless of whether you are in a position to pledge. You are more than just fans- you are the family that is making all of this happen.

Without you, we are nothing.
Without liberated art, we are all doomed.

We will keep you posted every step of the way.
