About this project

Attention Zombie Nation! It's time to make 2014 the year of The Nearly Deads!

We are finally releasing our long-awaited debut album 'Invisible Tonight,' on June 24! We put a lot of hard work into making the album and are really proud of it! In conjunction, we are also releasing an epic new video for our single "I Said" (on May 27) and want to continue to tour from coast to coast to play all these new songs for you and meet each and every one of you. We do everything we do because of YOU and, now, more than ever, we need your generous donations to help us!

Being a newly independent band, we are now able to have full control, and get the music directly to you guys, the best fans in the world. That said, being 100% independent is a very expensive endeavor and this Kickstarter campaign gives you the opportunity to contribute directly.

To show you how much we appreciate all your dedication and belief in us, we conjured up 35 offers, for your generous support, that include the opportunity to be rewarded with one-of-a-kind custom items as well as super rad experiences to spend one-on-one time with the band. And with every donation placed, you'll get a link to immediately download "I Said".

Some of the money we receive from you will go towards the production, manufacturing and release of the new album & video and provide support for all of the marketing, publicity and promotion it's gonna take to help us break through. Some of the money will be used to help cover expenses (including rad new merch!)  for our May 'Paper Dolls' tour and June 'Invisible Tonight' tour. Final details for all dates are still being confirmed but here is the routing (subject to change):

Thank you again for being the BEST fans in the world!

Zombies Unite!

Risks and challenges

We are just as dedicated to our zombies as you are to us! You are the reason we can continue to be a band and do what we love. Our album, Invisible Tonight, has been a long time coming. We have been working on these songs, and the production of this album, for over a year. We can't wait to share it with you! We can't wait to stay on the road and meet each and every one of you! As a group of incredibly true and chill individuals, we can't wait to spend time hand drawing and signing and making these prizes for you! We guarantee 100% fulfillment even if it means we have to hitchhike to get to you! After 4 years as a band, we don't plan on stopping until we reach the top! With your help, we will get there in no time!

Love, The Nearly Deads
