Because of YOU we get to release this album!!!  Thanks to 42 generous backers, we were able to raise the $4,000 needed to release this new album, "This is goodnight, this is goodbye"!  But why stop now?!

We want to invite all of you who have considered backing the project to still check out the rewards because these reward levels are limited and exclusive to this Kickstarter project. We've built in some added value to each level to ensure that you get more for your money since you are pledging ahead of time. 

If we are able to continue and raise more funds on this Kickstarter campaign, we will get a head start on purchasing an In-Ear Monitoring System (which is much needed) and also hopefully put a dent into our touring van savings fund!!

************************

Original Post:

We are a band called theKey from Atlanta, GA. We have invested several hours and many many dollars into the recording of our upcoming album entitled "This is goodnight, this is goodbye".

However, we need a little help in sending the tracks to mixing, mastering, and printing. This is where you come in! We are looking to raise $4,000 in 30 days to fund the completion of our album and release it to the world! We thank you so much for considering to support us and we promise to return to you the best product we can for your audible enjoyment! 

So take a look at some of the cool rewards on this project page and snag some of them that you think you'd like! We're so excited about this album and even more excited that you get to be a part of it!

Track Listing for the new album:

What I Want

Waiting
Don't Give Up on Me
No Better Than the Rest
Hey
No One
Out of the Blue
There She Goes
Without You
The Only Thing That's Right
Higher
Talk About You
For My King

You may recognize a few songs from previous recordings, but the final tracks on this album have been completely re-recorded, mixed, mastered, etc for fully professional quality.  Also, for some of the songs on the EP, we've added some delicious new arrangements/parts for your pleasure!  

The music video you see at various places in the video above was produced by our friends at Duct Tape Productions and has finally been released!  For your viewing pleasure:

We do not yet have an official release date for the album, but as soon as this Kickstarter project is finished (assuming it's successful), we will begin to nail down a release date!

If you haven't already done so, please go "like" us at facebook.com/theKeyBand so we can keep you updated on exciting things to come!
