We’re NEXT CItY, a brand new rock band from Los Angeles. 

Thank you so much to those of you who’ve checked out our new single "Blue Star" and watched the music video. We see you and we love you, and we can’t thank you enough for all the support so far.

We’re all really excited about this new musical project. It’s been a dream for each of us to create a band, and here we are. Right from the start, we want our fans to be as involved as possible. We want you to be part of this journey with us every step of the way.

Starting a band is the easy part, but making a great record and touring, especially in this digital age can get pretty expensive for any new band including ourselves.    

As a way to help fund these expenses, we’ve created a Kickstarter Campaign. Supporting us here will directly help us achieve our goals of recording our debut album and going on our first tour. We want to sing with you, and meet every single one of you asap.

By pledging, not only will you be helping ensure that these things happen, but we’re also offering tons of really cool and exclusive items. Items start off at just $10 and the more you decide to pledge, the cooler those items get.

Items include raffle tickets for a chance to win signed masks from our "Blue Star" video, exclusive t-shirts & signed photos, personalized messages and poems from us, a download to an exclusive track "Make You Mine" (unreleased to the public), an advanced preview of our next music video "Tell Me", and so much more! 

We all come from different walks of life, and your support will help us achieve our dreams. We can’t do this without you, it really means everything to us.

We hope you can be a part of our NEXT CItY family, and we hope to see you all very soon!

Risks and challenges

Launching a new band is both one of the most exciting, yet most challenging phases of a music career. It’s exhilarating for us to introduce new music that we’ve created into the world, and see the amazing reactions of new people discovering our music. However, being in a band and getting this project off the ground is really expensive. Making a killer record and being able to bring these songs to fans around the world costs several tens of thousands of dollars, which is a huge expense for bands like us who are just getting their start. In addition, with so much music content being flooded onto streaming and social media platforms, it’s becoming increasingly more difficult for any new band to get their break. We are at the beginning of our journey, and we really do need the help of our community of fans to get this project off the ground.
