We've been working on our second album "Shelf Life" for over a year and we're almost there. But we need a little help from you to make it amazing. All the songs are almost tracked and ready to mix, but the expenses of mixing, mastering and getting vinyl pressed and packaged has become a difficult obstacle for us.
I'm sure you know that CDs are a dime and dozen. But along with the convenience and low cost of CDs, Hearts of Darkness has always been committed to producing quality recordings on archival formats in exceptional packaging. If you're one of over 300 people who purchased our debut album "Hearts of Darkness" on 180g vinyl in a premium gatefold jacket, then you already know we put out a really nice, collectable product. For the rest of you, if you can help us out today, we promise you an album every bit as unique and exciting as our live show.
We're trying to raise $7,500 to cover the remaining expenses of putting out the album. This Kickstarter is an attempt to "pre-sell" copies of this album at a fair price as well offer you an opportunity to pick up all sorts of other bonus rewards. For instance, you can have your name included on the thank-you credits in the liner notes, take a trip to Chicago with some of us to see the vinyl being cut, or even sponsor your own private party or concert with the band.
Many of the sponsorship levels include tickets to our scheduled "Shelf Life" Album Release Party to be held Saturday August 25 at Knuckleheads, one of our favorite outdoor venues. This show will also feature our good friends, The Good Foot, so you can bet it's going to be a great time.
We hope you'll consider making a pledge now to help us get this album finished, especially if you think you'll purchase the album any time in the future. We promise that you won't be disappointed with the finished product.
Thank you for your time and attention,
Alex, Andrew, Bob, Brad, Brandy, Chris, Erica, Hermon, Jolan, Josh, Ken, Les, Mark, Miko, Pete, Phil, Rachel, Richard, Sam, Sean, Shawn
