About this project

UPDATE: We just crossed the 100% goal threshold for the campaign which means it will be funded. We are running out of superlatives to describe just how thankful we are, so we will put all of that energy into making the best record that we can over the coming months. 

The campaign will remain open for the next 12 hours so there is still time to pledge if you haven't had a chance. The funding goal we set was to help offset the costs of this process but doesn't cover everything. Every dollar above the goal will go straight to the recording budget. There are still some exclusive rewards that won't ever be available again so take a look!

--------------------------------------------

We are Hidden Hospitals and we have big dreams.  When we started this band nearly three years ago, we started with the goal to be 100% self contained and financed to ensure our creative vision and collective goals wouldn't be compromised by bottom line profitability from outside investors.  We've been fortunate enough to have released two 5-song EP's independent (EP 001 and EP 002), toured nationally, produced two music videos and most recently a vinyl record.  We've been blessed to partner with like-minded artists, engineers, photographers and videographers throughout our short history, which has allowed us to never compromise on quality.

Our next goal is to produce our first full length record.  We've spent the past year holed up in Chicago, writing, crafting and whittling down a collection of songs that we feel is the first full realization of why we started this band.  As you might assume, our biggest endeavor to date also comes with the biggest financial constraint.  We refuse to sacrifice this dream because of budget, so we are turning to you - our supporters - to help us get to the finish line.  Importantly, we aren't looking for donations, we want to give you exclusive access and rewards so you can own a piece of this process and be a true partner with Hidden Hospitals.

We are booked to return to Nashville in early July to begin production on the album in earnest.  Our production schedule includes 5 weeks of studio time to complete a collection of songs.  Our goal for this Kickstarter campaign is to help offset the costs of studio rental, engineering, and production.  But it doesn't end there, all additional funds beyond our goal raised will go to the costs of mixing, mastering and physical production of the record.

Thanks for taking a part in this very special project.  We are absolutely honored to be able to continue sharing our music with our fans.

 

Risks and challenges

We already have a collection of songs written, have gone through a round of pre-production and are now ready to head to the studio. The studio and production staff we are partnering with are all people we've worked with in the past and we have absolute faith in their ability to help us execute on our ambitious vision for this record. We don't foresee any setbacks, but we are resolved to make this dream come true whatever it takes.
