Now let's keep spreading the word so the world can get to know Alabaster and become apart of this dream! ~ <3 ~

Alabaster, originally from Chicago and now residing in Seattle, has been on a seven year long journey to bring the best music they can create, to anyone and everyone who has a passion for great music.  Through their unique blend of chunky guitar riffs, haunting synth, dance-worthy drums, and melodic vocal harmonies, they are able to reach the hearts of music lovers in all genres.  The start of 2011 brought new goals and throughout the year, and Alabaster has been checking them off one by one.  Their new EP, "Unraveled" is a blend of the raw emotional lyrics and more sophisticated playing and executed pop tendencies. This album reaches deep into the very real struggles of love, addiction, survival, recovery, and leaves you gasping for more. 

Because Alabaster loves their fans so much, they want to make the release of their EP Unraveled the best that they possibly can for everyone involved.  Between recording the entire EP with the very talented producer, Joel Casey Jones, releasing their single, "Overcome", having it all mastered by the untouchable Kris Crummet, and recording a music video for the single with the amazing Garrett Gibbons, they've racked up an impressive resume. Now include all the odds and ends that go into an epic stage set up, touring, and performance.  They need that little help to push them successfully into this release that will drop on December 10th, 2011. 

Alabaster asks that you please watch their video and give whatever you can to help them out.  They have come up with some amazing prizes to offer in return and are so excited to give you an amazing CD, Lyrical Booklet, Poster, and a stage show that will take no mercy, followed by touring, and world domination. But they can't do it with out your HELP!
