About this project

******Update******

First off, thank you to everyone who has donated so far!! We are beyond grateful for all of your support! 

Second, we wanted to explain a bit more in depth about where the money is going; here is a little outline that we made:

  • Publicist (estimated $5,000)
  • Mastering (estimated $2,000)
  • Promotional & marketing materials including Lux merch, press kits, music videos, etc. (estimated $3,000)
  • Pressing & packaging CD's & vinyl (estimated $5,000)
  • Full scale U.S. tour ($2,000)

As you can see, this adds up to well over $15,000 but if we can raise the 10K we can make this all happen!!!

Thanks so much for all the support! There's no way we could do this without you guys!!

What We Are Doing

We are currently putting our entire life into recording our debut full length album in our DIY studio!

Unfortunately, putting everything into our music comes with a price...that price is that we are now officially starving artists. This is where you come in.  We need as much help as we can get to release our album so all of our hard work does not go to waste!

What We Need Help Funding

-PUBLICITY! Getting our album heard by the right people is definitely one of the most important things we can do to succeed.  As a new band though, it can be difficult to actually get the right people people to listen.  This is why publicity is the most crucial (and unfortunately most expensive) thing that we need to fund.  We have already signed a contract with an AWESOME publicist.  We just need to pay him.  Our publicist will be sending our album to all the important college radio stations, national press magazines and blogs! He will also make sure that they actually listen to our music. 

-Mastering: This is what will make our album sound in-your-face awesome!

-Pressing: We need to print a couple thousand copies of our CD.  Half of them will be sent to college radio & national press.  The other half we will sell at our shows, on tour and at awesome online sites like insound.com.

-Vinyl: We've been getting a ton of requests for Lux on vinyl.  Pressing vinyl is very expensive, but luckily with the help of Kickstarter we can make it happen for you!

What's In It For You?
