Project update 10.0
Hello, Everyone.Less than a week to go for our Kickstarter campaign.
So far we've raised over $200k from a little less than 5000 supporters. That's enough to manufacture and fulfill the orders, pay our wonderful team, cover recording costs, and we have a little left over for promotion and marketing. A few years ago it would have been so much more difficult to get a project like this off the ground, and there would have been a mountain of debt, but here we are - it's amazing to be able to start the release process free and clear. Thank you all so much.
We are nearly done with the package design and will send out manufacturing orders as soon as the campaign closes. Vinyl will likely take a bit longer than CDs and posters, but we'll keep updating you with the progress until we can get your orders into your hands.
We're so happy we were able to get the music out to you early. Kickstarter isn't actually built for early rewards, but they were generous in allowing us to go ahead and find a workaround to provide you with downloads before the campaign was over. Once we've finished the campaign, artwork will be reworked and we will provide updated download links for you.
Perhaps we'll reach the stretch goal of $250k, perhaps we won't. It's been exciting to see the campaign become so active again in the last week (We're back on the front page of Kickstarter!). However it goes, it's been a great ride. It took a while for us to get this record made, and just seeing the early reaction to the music has already made it worth the time and effort.
Once again - word of mouth is just about our only way of spreading the news. Thanks for all you've done, and we'd still appreciate it if you shouted out once more through Twitter or Facebook, or if you happen to run a giant media conglomerate and want to stick it on the evening news or a stadium jumbotron that's ok too.
Thank you all.
P.S. We thought you might want a sneak peak of the New Constellation Album cover. We hope you like it!
P.S.S. Annnnnd an acoustic version of "California Wasted"
