Greetings friends, family, and fellow wanderers!
Welcome to the Kickstarter page for our up coming album, "Death Letter Jubilee".
This coming winter, we will begin recording our debut full length album with an anticipated Spring 2012 release. We've been writing these songs for the past year and a half, and through long nights at the writing table, rigorous road testing (in the U.S. and Europe), and a steady stream of bourbon, we have finally pieced together the songs that will create Death Letter Jubilee.
Now that the songs are together, we have to shift our focus onto how we are going to fund this project. We don't have the means to complete it on our own, and we're not looking for donations. What we are proposing to you, is your investment in this record. The songs we play are just as much yours as they are ours, and that's how we want to approach this new record. We want you to be a part of Death Letter Jubilee. We are faced with a daunting task, which we are doing without any financial backing, and only the support of our wonderful families, and you, our incredible fans.
We have put together the team that we know can build this album. This project will be spearheaded by our producer, J. Hall, who also produced “A Bird Called Angola”, and we are searching for the right place to do this record. Whether it’s a haunted house down in New Orleans, a vibey studio in Nashville, or an old warehouse in Chicago, we’re going to do this record in a space that allows us to capture the raw, live sound that these songs deserve.
Over the last few months, we have sat down and mapped out a budget for this project. We feel that we can do this album as we want it done with $25,000. What we are looking for from this campaign is $15,000 to help us meet that goal. That being said, $15,000 is a lot to ask, and some of you may be wondering, “Why do you need that much money to create this record?”
Creating a professional record is expensive. Between the studio time, a producer, engineers, mixing, mastering, and manufacturing; it can cost anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000 on a record label budget. We’re going to be doing this record for a fraction of that budget, but feel that it is going to be just as good, if not better, because of it.
Whether you choose to donate $10 or $10,000, EVERY little bit helps. With each dollar raised, it moves us one step forward in creating an incredible record.
Thank you so much for your support over the past 3.5 years, and thank you for being a part of Death Letter Jubilee!
