Q: Who are we?
A: We are SWAG TOOF: indie artists following our dreams & creating LIFE CHANGING music. We have released a few self developed music videos (with zero budget & no promotion) that brought our youtube views to 23,852 from word-a-mouth alone. The songs in these videos were from our completely free mixtape, Earwigs Vol. 1: which has already caught the attention of world famous recording artist "GARY GO" & the staff of "The All Out Show w/ Rude Jude & Lord Sear" on "SHADE 45" Serius/XM Radio. Hearing our song "FOOLS GOLD" on the radio sent us into inspirational over-drive in the creation of the album "DREAM KILLERS" dedicated to everyone pursuing their dreams despite the countless people who want to bring them down. ABOVE ALL: We have been fully supporting this music with the scraps left over after paying rent/bills and more or less imprisoned in a realm of working at less fulfilling jobs & doing whatever we can to keep making the music we truly love.
Q: What do we need?
A: $5000 (but we set the goal minimum for $1000 to make sure your funds reach us.) is that a lot? IN THIS INDUSTRY? HELL NO! We need everyone get behind the underdog on this one & help us in our quest to DEFEAT THE DREAM KILLERS!
Q: What exactly does the money go to?
A: We would expect the majority of you to ask this very question. OUR ANSWER is simple: to give this album to a FRACTION of the push it deserves. ALL moneys collected will be invested in the promotion/ development & LAUNCH of the album itself. In order to get our music into the right ears we need the help of those whose ears can hear us now.
Q: Will the pre-release version of the album be the same as the official release? And won't the shirts be available in your store?
A: NO! it will contain all the bonus material & songs that didn't make the final cut as well as the CLEAN VERSION of the album & some top secret MP4 & MP3 goodness you'll never have access to again! The shirt design being offered in this kickstarter is 100% exclusive. NO ONE WILL EVER GET THIS SHIRT BUT YOU!! (they are named and numbered for authenticity)
Q: How can we make this happen?
A: Pledge even a dollar toward this amazing album & the rewards far surpass the donations asked. Sleep well knowing you supported a pair of kids who followed their dreams far beyond all the turn-back nows, beyond all the doubts & naysayers and are finally on the cusp of a fair chance.
