Message from The Five One:
After posting the video for our single "Mandatory," we received 25,000 views in less than a week. We feel pretty great, as we have even been approached to have our video on TV, which only means more exposure for your favorite COLORS.
Doing all of this with only the strength of our supporters made us realize that we would love to continue this as much as we can, on our way to achieving something GREAT.
We are thrilled to announce that our full-length studio album, RED BLUE GREEN GOLD, is in final production. We are aiming for an early 2011 release, but we need your HELP!
We manage everything on the creative side ourselves, or have friends who do it for us. Your pledge will not go toward any studio time, rehearsal space rental, equipment rental, mastering & mixing, or design and editing. Releasing a record is a big process and requires a publicist, radio promoters, an internet marketing team, patience, ingenuity, creative ideas, merchandise, tour support, an excellent product, pressing thousands of copies, and, most importantly, we need a BUDGET to make it all happen.
A successful album release campaign is expensive and it's important that fans and contributors understand the kind of money that is involved.
Major record labels spend MILLIONS of dollars releasing a record.
The amount we need is far less than that...
We're asking you for $800,000.
Nah we playing with you...
In the end, we actually need round $15,000, but from all our friends and family we're only asking for $3,500. The reason for this is because Kickstarter will not give us the money if we don't reach our goal! With that being said, please feel free to pledge beyond our goal. Anything you pledge gets you a reward! Please look over the rewards on the right-hand side of this page.
What we ask of YOU, our Supporters, is to continue lifting us in to success. We dont want to wait for the perfect SITUATION before we start making major moves, so we're moving forward! With your support, we can be in the same place as the Major Artists.
