In order to self release this record on our terms, we share this process and we’re asking for help. Our main funding goal is $50,000. With this money, the bulk of it is going to be spent on prep and marketing. We intend to self release this record all around the world, not just North America, and to do that, we’re gonna need to advertise. We also have costs of hiring an engineer to record and mix our record, as well as the costs in fulfilling the perks in this here campaign. We haven’t been this excited to work on music in years. Our ultimate goal is to write and record the best record of our career, and share it with as many people as possible, all over the globe.
We intend to be highly interactive with this campaign from the launch through the finish. If we sell out of perks, we will get creative and add new ones. Have any ideas? Email us, firstname.lastname@example.org — lets do this!

Risks and challenges
We’re a small do-it-yourself team and the biggest challenge we face is getting the word out about whatever we do. How does a band in America, market their music in Japan? A country we have done very well in over the course of the last 20 years. Thats just one example of what we’re trying to do. At the same time, because our team is small, we will be all hands on deck to fulfill these perks/pledges. Time is valuable— but we will deliver. We’ve run our own webstore for the last five years, and have experience in organizing and shipping out the perks/pledges in this campaign. However, it’s one thing to say it, it’s another to do it and we will need our full team on hand to not leave people hanging that help us. The main risk involved is the cost of this whole endeavor. There are costs from everything to recording, design, vinyl pressing, t-shirt printing, shipping, personnel, and marketing the record once it is complete. These bills add up quick. We have to make a real budget and allocate it correctly to our needs. The priority will be to delivering what we promise, and the remainder will be used for marketing upon release.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
