Who:

We are The Autumn Film and we're a completely independent 3-piece indie-rock/pop band from Boulder, Colorado. We make our living as a touring band, entertaining folks old and new all across the U.S. 

We had a humble beginning forming in 2006 playing seedy, poorly lit bars, eventually moving to slightly less seedy, better lit bars to finally and most recently playing a more acoustic set in people's living rooms all across the country You can check out an example here (ultra exclusive kickstarter youtube video)

We have 2 full length albums already out, and 4 EP's that are free to download here. 

There's also live show videos and illegal uploads of our last album on youtube that you can check out here! 

Here's a soundcloud link if you just want to play one of our songs.

What:

"8-Track Tape" is our latest release that we've been working on for the past year-ish. Originally it was supposed to be released during the beginning of the summer of 2010. Alas. That deadline has passed, and funding is the main reason why. We want to release this album as soon as possible because we think it's our best work yet. We wrote this album with the intent to create beautiful, story-based music that is deeply moving and inspiring to other people and artists. We think Kickstarter is the perfect platform to help get the word out about this album. We want to get 8-Track into your hands as quickly as possible.

In no particular order, here's the track titles that will be on the album.

  • Leave The Light On
  • Save Me
  • Row
  • I'm Going In
  • Love Is An Avalanche
  • Looking For A Sign
  • Slow Down
  • The Giving Tree

Why Kickstarter?

Kickstarter is a great platform for all types of creative projects to get funded, where artists, like such as...ourselves, are able to put it all on the line, and get their projects to move forward. Kickstarter's model means that if we don't raise $8,008 by the time the project ends, everyone who pledged money gets all their money back. Also, we're able to give you something in return for your loyal support and patronage. Here's where it gets really fun:

Paintings!

On the right, you'll see the tiers from $248 and up include a painting! This is where it gets really special. If you're awesome enough to support us at or above that level, we'll paint you a painting based on the content and story of one of the tracks. Here's a couple of examples of the painting's we've created in the past:

When?

44 days from now is when our project expires, and assuming we are able to raise just over $8K, our album should be released within a few weeks of funding completion.  

Why $8,008?

We thought adding an extra 8 at the end would be clever because of the name of the album, but the other $8000 will be used specifically to finish mixing the songs, send them off to mastering, and then design and duplicate physical copies to distribute to our wonderful fans. We've already spent around $9K, and we'd love to get the last $8K to finish everything up.

If you like what we're up to, please tell everyone you know about it! Tweet, facebook, blog, shout from your rooftop! Thanks so much for reading all the way to the end! You are awesome.
