We're hard at work on the third Stripmall Architecture album and we need your help to fund its release.
UPDATE: We've passed our goal, thank you! Please watch the update video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzBfKQ_3tGk&feature=youtu.be. In addition to all the rewards listed to the right, we will add the following if we hit $10,000:
» Vinyl pressing of the new album to every backer at the $50 level or higher
» CD EP of covers of the Cure's "Disintegration" album for every back at the $25 level or higher
We're hard at work on our third Stripmall Architecture album and we're thrilled to announce that today we're launching our most elaborate Kickstarter campaign yet to fund the release. We made a short video explaining the whole thing (and includes some of the new music). You can watch that right here, right now.
This will be the 10th album overall that we (Rebecca and Ryan) have made together and we plan on doing some things differently. For the first time ever, we're using an outside mix engineer - John Fryer (This Mortal Coil, Cocteau Twins, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails), and we're returning to our roots using primarily analog synthesizers this time around.
In addition to the intro video above, we'll be releasing further videos in the coming days that will go into more detail about various aspects of the project.
We look forward to your participation. We cannot do this without you!
If you need any help or have any questions about any of the backer rewards, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you and also, thank you.
Rebecca & Ryan
(All of the backer rewards say that they'll be delivered in June because that's about when we expect to be done with the album. Most of the rewards will ship right after the Kickstarter ends at the beginning of March.)
A test pressing is the first copy of a record used to test the quality of the pressing before the entire run of records is manufactured. A limited number of unmarked test pressings is produced.
The Mystery Box is a ONE-TIME shipment of a box full of curiosities that may include music, video, documents, edibles, photos and many other things. Each box will be unique.
The rarities box is a ONE-TIME shipment of a box full of rare music from the various projects of Rebecca and Ryan Coseboom of Stripmall Architecture. This will include demos, old bands and music done for commercials and films that has never been officially released.
The SMA Subscription is a year-long set of shipments (one per month) curated by Stripmall Architecture. These shipments will include random surprises that may include music, video, textiles, edibles, documents, photos and many other things.
The Feathersongs Box is a limited edition wooden box (only 25 produced) that was made to house the full collection of releases related to the Feathersongs for Factory Girls album. The box comfortably holds all of the various CD's/records/DVD's/books/etc that were released along with the Feathersongs album. We will include all currently available Feathersongs-related items with the box.
While in Halou, Rebecca wore many different gowns/dresses onstage. She still has many of these and will provide a choice to those who select this reward.
