What are we doing here on Kickstarter?
We already have one album under our belt. Different Lonesome was released in March 2014 to critical acclaim and we are very proud of it. This time round however, we wanted to do more. We wanted to push ourselves to our limits and create the best record we could and we feel we've done that. But now we want as many people to hear and enjoy it as possible. And that’s where you come in.
What will your money contribute towards?
£10,000 sounds like a lot of money, and it is. However when you factor in what is needed to release and market our album, the costs start to add up:
Pressing and Marketing: Now that the record has been finished, we need to press hundreds of copies to sell to people at our gigs or in record stores as well as sending them away to radio stations up and down the country and maybe even further afield. Like we said before, we want as many people to hear and enjoy our work as possible and through the use of pluggers on the radio and an advertising campaign both online and in magazines, we hope to achieve as wide a reach as possible.
Booking a Tour: This is arguably the most crucial step in the whole process. That’s why we want to work with a booking agent to organise and book a 12-date tour spread over 6 weeks. We aim to travel to places we've never been before to promote, sell and share our new album with everyone.
What will you get for your generosity?
All these things combined means we can promote and tour something memorable and lasting for our fans, old and new. And as a thank you for helping us along this journey, we have some exciting rewards to offer no matter how much you pledge. From signed CD’s and exclusive T-Shirts, to hand-written lyrics and a chance to sit in on one of our recording sessions as we finalise the tracks, so you can see first hand the album taking shape, there are rewards to suit everyone. To coincide with the launch of our first single from the new album, 'Hollow Tree', if you pledge any amount of money to the campaign, we will email you a link to download the song for free, instantly!
Every member of this band has a love and passion for writing and performing music. We already can’t thank you enough for taking the time to check out our project and see what we’re trying to achieve. The more that is pledged, the more we can push ourselves to deliver an even better experience for you. Because at the end of the day, it really is all about you, the fans. Please check our video and the rewards on offer and help us reach our goal.
Risks and challenges
There is always a risk with going far and wide that it will cost you more money than you make, which is one of the main reasons for launching this project.
By putting ourselves out there, our original material for new audiences is always going to be a risk. We're confident that people will love the new album though!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
