Hey Guys,

Tom from Ghosts of Eden here. First off, thank you very much for taking the time to check out our Kickstarter page. I'd like to take a few moments to tell you a little bit about our project.

For the past year, the 4 of us have been working very hard touring and writing songs that can help take us to the next level. Luckily we're in an age where the "Do It Yourself" attitude can take you a long way. Unfortunately for us, we don't have the right recording equipment or studio experience to capture the sound we're looking for on our own.

With that said, we're going back to the amazing Big Blue Meenie studios (Taking Back Sunday, Thursday, INXS, Rage Against the Machine, Local H, Bouncing Souls, Misfits, etc.) to make our new record. We made our first album there which came out amazing but it was only 4 songs due to our budget. This time we want to make a 6-7 song EP because we feel that we have a lot of great songs that should be heard.

On our own, we have been able to raise enough money to pay for the tracking of 6-7 songs and the mixing of 3 songs for this new album but that still leaves us about $3,500 in the hole, hence our project goal.

We'd like to share with you exactly where your money will be going. We consider you all investors and like any investment, you should know exactly what you're helping us to accomplish:

Total Project Goal: $3,500

Mixing of 4 songs: $2,000

Mastering of 7 songs: $500

Pressing, Manufacturing and Artwork for 1,000 copies of the album: $1,000

What if we go over our goal?

This is a great question because 100% will be going towards this album even if we surpass our goal of $3,500.  We will not be pocketing 1 cent. We do not want to be greedy and set our goal too high because we really want to be able to make this record for you guys so falling short of our goal would delay this project by a lot of time.  We appreciate your generosity though so some of the things we would be using your investments towards if we surpass our goal are:

Merchandise (T-shirts, girl tank-tops, bracelets, stickers, wrist bands, banners, pins): $1,000 - $1,500

Music Video: $500 - $1,000

Touring costs (gas for the cars, tolls, etc.): $500 +

We really hope you check out our video, our bio and most important our music so you not only see but HEAR what we are all about. Music is not just our hobby. It's our passion. We're just 4 regular guys with irregular dreams. We hope you choose to not  "help" us but to "believe" in us.

...do you believe in ghosts?
