Hello, everyone. Thanks again for the outpouring of support in the first week of our Kickstarter campaign. It was humbling to see it and we look forward to getting those records in your hands. That being said, we could always use more help from those inclined to give.
Honestly, we were a bit hesitant at first to launch a internet fund raising campaign, having raised the money to record and produce the record on our own. We weren't sure how it would work out. The $2,500 goal was the bare minimum amount needed to press vinyl and CDs, and pay for artwork. We did ultimately hope to exceed this goal to begin to save money for other band expenses, including putting money aside for future recordings. The money could also be used to print t-shirts, stickers, and other merchandise. We also will begin to think about the purchase of a van soon, if we are able to begin spreading our wings a bit with the release our record.
Once again, we have been blown away by your generosity. For those of you that didn't give but were considering it, a pledge is still a great way to pre-order merch (a maybe even a FG house party) and help us out in the process.
We hope to see you all out next week at Bottletree for a release show with The Banditos. Thanks!
