About this project

Young Orchids is an independent rock n' roll band from Atlanta, GA. We started recording our full-length debut CD, entitled Afterglow, over a year and a half ago, and we are excited to finally release it to the public next month on 3/25. We've successfully funded the entire cost of the album ourselves (including recording, mixing, mastering, artwork, pressing, etc.), which was no easy task. We've played pretty much everywhere there is to play in Atlanta, as well as many neighboring cities, but we really need to take our show on the road to properly promote this album. We are ready to go on tour, but lacking funds to purchase a van.

We have started this Kickstarter project as a way to raise money to buy a van. If you decide to donate, not only will you have the satisfaction of knowing you have directly helped with our cause, but you will also receive some cool rewards as well, many of which are exclusive and limited. We should mention that Kickstarter is "all or nothing," as in if we don't make our target, we won't see a penny. So please look over the rewards and make a donation if you are feeling generous. Every little bit helps. You can also help by spreading the word about our Kickstarter campaign. Just use the links under the video, or share the link "theyoungorchids.com/donate".

To learn more about Young Orchids, check out a recent episode of Comcast's Bands on Demand series spotlighting the band.
