Dear lovely Animals!

We are so lucky to have fan-animals like you and thanks to your support we have already made 2 albums and many music videos without any major backing from a record label ... We have been able to do everything on our own family run label and YOU have big a big part of that and we are eternally grateful for it.

But now...

WE NEED YOU AGAIN!

We want to make our third album and unfortunately recording, mixing and mastering do not come cheap, even with our DIY ethics... so we need to raise funds and I wanted to give you all the opportunity to get involved.

And...

We're not just asking for money... we will, of course, be giving you exclusive rewards in return with the aim of getting you as involved as possible and LOTS of love!

As always; backing us also gets you a backstage pass to private blogs, updates and goodies so it really is the best way to get to know us and vice versa... We hope you know that backing us will automatically mean you are part of the family and if there is anything we can do for you - please ask!

The fact that you are reading this means we like you already so come on in and join the zoo!

Just so you know...

*It's an "all or nothing" campaign- if we don't reach the goal none of it happens :(

BUT if it does...

*We have gone with a goal that we think is realistic but still lower than what we need for making the album so lets try and push it way above 100% so we can make the album we really want to make for you.

UPDATE STRETCH GOAL:

We are so happy to have reached the original goal of £5000 which means we will definitely be making the album and have 10days in the studio to do so

BUT

We REALLY want to use the same mixing engineer from our 2nd album because he is amazing and although he has very generously given us great 'mates rates' we still need a lot more to afford it.

OUR NEW STRETCH GOAL IS £7000

*Even if you can't pledge just sharing this and telling your friends will do us the world of good.

We love you all very much and are forever grateful for your kindness!

Risks and challenges

I want to be totally honest with everyone...
With our last campaign most things were fulfilled on time especially the sending of the albums and any merchandise. Writing out personal lyrics books took a bit of time as we were busy on tour but there was one thing that, regrettably, took me ages and that was writing songs with some of you- we all met quickly and started our songs and most were also done there and then but I am still working on a few, I have been in touch with these people and it has been so hard to juggle with touring, my own song writing and of course, life.
I have learnt from this...

That is why this campaign only has rewards in it that I can 100% keep to on time.

The only thing that may be delayed is the actual releasing of the album as sometimes these things happen but I can't see any reason why it would at the moment - if anything does happen of that sort I will let you know.
