Hey everyone! Thank you so much for visiting our Kickstarter page!

Who we are:

Sleepwalker is--Brian Blevins, Joe Gerhard, Michael Gessert, and Matt Horn--a group of passionate and talented musicians who have been writing songs and playing shows in the Tempe area for the past 3 years now.  With influences such as Muse, Thrice, The Receiving End of Sirens, and many more, Sleepwalker pumps out a powerful yet sometimes sweet sound that is sure to please a broad spectrum of music listeners. Despite everything this band has accomplished thus far, we've only scratched the surface of our capabilities.

What we're doing:

We've spent the last year writing and recording our album that we're all very proud of, and now we're finally ready to release it! Unfortunately, CD manufacturing is kind of expensive, and we still need a few more things before it's a finished product--like album artwork, and professional photos.

We've always been big proponents of the whole DIY philosophy, which is why we've built our own trailer, spent weeks getting greasy under the van changing fluids and putting in new parts, and why we do all of our own merch designs.

But now we need a little bit of extra help to get the album printed, and to get the van into shape for heavy touring outside of Arizona.

Where the money goes:

  • CD pressing/manufacturing - $1200
  • New Tires - $700
  • CD Artwork - $300
  • Materials to build a bed in the back of the van - $100
  • A tune-up for the van - $200
  • Professional photography - $500

How Kickstarter works:

If our $3000 goal isn't 100% funded in 45 days:

  • we don't receive any of the money
  • your pledged donations are refunded
  • none of the donation rewards will be distributed
