This project will enable us to finish recording, mix, master, and manufacture the long awaited second Morpheus Rising album.

We’re a British twin guitar based rock band, currently working on our second album. We've been busy writing, arranging and recording a new batch of songs for this release, and we're ready to mix, produce, master and manufacture it ready for you!

We recently signed with an independent label in the US, but the days of massive advances to pay for albums are long gone. So we need to fund this ourselves – and we’re well on the way! The new songs sound fantastic so far and we’re very excited!

There’s a lot we need to do between where we are now - and the finished album, and that’s where we need your help. 

If you went to our website www.morpheusrising.co.uk or our facebook page and ordered a CD from us, you’d pay and we’d send you the CD straight away. But what we’re asking this time is that you take a little leap of faith, and give us some time between paying for it in advance… and getting it!

If enough people back this project, we can do all the magic that needs to be done; mixing it; filming the next video, manufacturing it and then sending it to you.

So we’ve put together some amazing and fun packages which start with in effect, pre-ordering the album!

But you could get even more involved – there will be a Deluxe Limited Edition release – which will also get your name in the booklet, a limited edition T shirt, an invitation to the album launch, dinner with the band, a half day’s guitar tuition with Pete and Daymo… a part in the next video, all sorts of things. We think there’ll be something for everyone!

If you really get behind this project and back it beyond our original target, additional funds will allow us to expand our tour planning to include places which would otherwise have been impractical.

Obviously, we’ll keep everyone who backs us fully up to date about how it’s going and when exactly we will be releasing the CD.

So you have a brilliant opportunity to produce a Great British rock album. Be a part of this with us. We need your help to make it a reality.  

Thank you!

Si, Pete, Daymo, Andy and Nige

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

As an established band (we go back to 2008) with one album already under our belt, we are relatively familiar with the challenges involved in getting a new album completed and out to the fans. We learned a lot from some mistakes last time but inevitably things don't always go quite according to plan.

We're already well underway with this new album and with your support, we hope to get the whole project completed and ready to go this year, but the one thing we don't want to do is rush anything. We want to produce an outstanding album which stands up among it's peers, reflects our musical passion and ambition and is as good as we can possibly make it for you.

The most important thing we can do is to be transparent with you and keep you posted about how things are progressing. We will keep you updated through a dedicated page on our website http://www.morpheusrising.co.uk/kickstarter, updates here on Kickstarter, and regular updates via email, so you will always know what's going on, and when you can expect to receive what you're backing.

FAQ

  • Of course you can!

    Just send us a message and tell us what you want. There's a "Contact me" link in the blue box above the rewards column on the right. We'll work out the price, get back to you and put the package together for you.

    Please don't everyone leave it till the last moment though, or we'll try to rush to look after everyone and make a mistake and miss someone out. So, if you do want a custom package of rewards, please get in touch BEFORE FRIDAY OCTOBER 4th, and we'll sort out the last ones over that weekend.
