We're calling this project I Is Another. A badass called Rimbaud wrote that a while back. It fits. Were making music that's trying to express that.
We've known each other for lots of years and bands (Rival Schools, Far, Cardia, onelinedrawing, Burn, Gratitude, New End, etc). We've made some music together in various ways, but we'd never actually written stuff together. Over the past few months, we've been coming up with some stuff we really like, so we want to make some more. That's where you come in.
This isn't a project we're planning to put out on a big label or tour with or anything. It's just friends making stuff and wanting to share it with you (and ask for your help getting it into the homes and ears of other awesome people that want to hear it). We've got a couple things pretty much done. A clip that we like is up there, please share it around. We'll keep in touch as we go, of course. Along with the downloads, depending on how much you chip in, you can get limited edition CDs, vinyl and all sorts of other stuff.
BONUS ROUNDS: If everyone chips in enough that we hit our goal so we can pay for everything, then for every $1800 that gets chipped in beyond that, we'll record and release another song, straight to you. We'll make as many as you want (seriously). Let's make good stuff happen!
Thanks for supporting independent artists. It means a lot.

(For anyone that saw this project on Indiegogo: We had all sorts of technical difficulties there, so we're re-launching here. If you already chipped in there, you're all set and you'll get your stuff as promised. If you'd like to give us a vote of confidence here, it's only a buck and it'll make it easier on everyone to stay in contact. No matter what, though, we'll make sure you stay in the loop and send extra treats for the slight added hassle. Thanks for the support and spreading the word.)
