Ghost of Gloria - Trial + Virtue

Hey everyone! Welcome to our KickStarter page. Hopefully you've watched the video and have been able to begin blocking some of that footage from your mind, but now we can get into some more detail about this project:

Before we went into the studio in the winter of 2008, we decided that a 7 song EP was the best way to go. This meant we had to choose which songs made the cut; never and easy decision for any artist to make, but the result came to be known as our debut release "Voices From the Red Room." Now, after over a year of great regional success and solid national exposure, we are ready to start releasing some of the great songs that had to take a back seat and we are doing so throughout 2011 with a series of three song EP's collectively called "Trial + Virtue."

In total we are hoping to release three volumes, each several months apart giving our friends and fans nine more passion driven songs to add to their Ghost of Gloria collections. We're getting this music mixed, mastered and spit-shined to give you guys the quality of music that you deserve and that you've come to expect from us.

KickStarter Rewards

This KickStarter page is a way for us to offer you some cool, extremely unique ways to help us achieve our goal of finishing this 3 volume release. Here's the thing though: we MUST reach our goal of 3,500 dollars, or else we get none of the funding, and NO ONE gets any rewards.

Making even a small record isn't cheap! Here are just a few costs people may or may not know about:

*Recording: going into the studio and laying all of the instruments down, setting the arrangements, deciding the basic form of the songs

*Mixing: getting all of the elements of the song together and blending them, moving them, sometimes removing them, etc.

*Mastering: getting the volume of the song and the overall level to be compatible with radio, CD audio, etc. Also a last effort to add or remove unwanted frequencies.

*Promotion: it costs money to get the word out! Fliers, artists, PR firms, etc.

This is just the tip of the iceberg.

KickStarter lets us give back to you directly for helping to fund the project. You can see the rewards here on the page. Any amount is absolutely certain to help move this thing along. So please--help us get this done right for you. See what suits you, and please spread the word!

A word to our international supporters: If you donate at a reward level that requires us to ship you something (starting at $10), please add enough additional funds above that reward level to cover our shipping costs to your area. Thanks!

If you have any questions about the rewards, the new music, or why Jeff keeps his toilet paper in the refrigerator, feel free to shoot us an E-Mail or leave a comment here on the page!

Thank you,

John, Jeff, Mark and Mark
