SO HERES THE STORY:

In 2009,We started a Pop/Rock band called Sound the City. (www.purevolume.com/soundthecity) We toured a lot and played a lot of shows. We also recorded 3 EP's in that short year and a half time frame. From help from parents, relatives, friends etc., we were able to fund the records. We were lucky enough even to travel a full month on Warped Tour, play on South by South West, and open for the Motel 6 Rock Your Self to Sleep Tour in 2010. We were doing pretty well, but something just wasn't right. We then all sat down and talked about our options. We could either continue in Sound the City and not feel right about what we were doing, or break it off. So, we decided to break it off and take a little breather from music. Well, that didn't last long because before we knew it, Ryan and I (Michael) were writing music again. We wrote until we felt happy about our songs again. We felt that we had lost that in Sound the City and after a few months break we found it once again. But, the new style of music was a lot different than Sound the City and after talk about reforming the band, we decided new members were needed for a new project. We asked some friends of ours from a local band to help us out and they worked out perfectly. After 6 months of writing, recording, and starting from scratch, here we are. This is our music, this is who we really are. We're Reactions.

WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO:
What we need to do is raise $2500 dollars in 40 days to record a new EP with Max Coane (www.midcitysound.com). We are planning on heading to Hollywood, CA to record a 5 song EP scheduled to release sometime in March. We will posting videos, pictures and demos of our songs to keep you informed on the progress. As soon as it is finished and completed, we will be sending them out to you guys. Then we will submit it to the digital outlets (iTunes, Amazon, etc). Then come March and April, after our Ep has launched, we will be hitting the road and touring all over the U.S.

WHAT THE MONEY IS FOR :
$1000 - Studio Time
$1000 - Engineer/Producer/Mixing
$500 - Mastering

$2500 is the MINIMUM amount we need to record this EP. When releasing a new record, the correct amount is close to $15,000. This includes advertising and promoting the new cd, music video, touring etc. But, all we are asking for is $2500. ALSO, IF WE DON'T MAKE OUR GOAL, WE DON'T GET A PENNY OF IT. IF WE DO MAKE IT OR GO OVER, IT GOES STRAIGHT TO US! We are putting our heart and soul into these new songs and it is all for you guys! Please help us further our musical adventure and HELP US FUND OUR NEW EP! :)
