We are Hail Your Highness. This will be our 8th year as a band and we couldn’t be more excited to share our new vision and line up with you! How do we do that? By playing shows. Festivals and summer tours are platforms that help launch Indie bands, like ourselves, directly into the lives of the listener, you. We had such great success with our Indiegogo campaign last year that we thought we’d try it again and with a completely different vision in mind for this band. New music, new vibe, new presentation. Very Rock&Roll, drums and a guitar set up side by side and 2 powerful lead vocals overtop of it all. By donating to our campaign, you are taking a direct hand in investing in a band you believe in and want to see succeed which is a beautiful thing. You get to help us take a step forward in furthering our musical exposure.
What We Need & What You Get
Festivals and tours don’t come cheap. An average festival slot these days can run a band like us anywhere between $200 and $500 per time slot. That fee does not include food to eat, a place to sleep, gas to get there and sometimes not even a wrist band or event pass to get into the festival which we sometimes have to buy separately for each band member and the road crew. Venues aren’t really paying bands these days either, so if we have the money to get back and forth, we can play those shows as well ergo tour dates sandwiched between festival slots.
We’ve beefed up our perks section this year in our unique, d.i.y. fashion and we’re super excited to share them with you! Everything you get for donating is either made by us or ours personally. So think of them as our gifts to you for giving and generously investing in our band! We’re recording an exclusive acoustic EP just for this campaign, creating a limited edition DVD with behind the scenes footage of shows, life on the road, studio time and all the goofiness in between and much, much more. Our larger perks this year are going to be private shows this summer anywhere you want it (in the Midwest area ONLY). Whether it’s in your house, backyard or venue, we’ll come play! Make sure you check out all the awesome perks we’re making for you this year! There are lots of rad goodies to choose from!
All funds raised will go directly to paying for festival slots and the expenses to get there and back and in between.
The music business is a tricky industry these days. To get people’s attention, you have to present yourself and your band in a new and interesting way and that’s exactly what we’re trying to do with HYH. It’s been a challenge and obstacle to overcome and your support is crucial in not only keeping our band moving forward, but all Indie bands that you strongly believe in moving forward. By taking a leap of faith with us, and directly taking an active hand in the future of Hail Your Highness, we believe you’re keeping music alive. You helped us beat our goal last year and we believe you can help us again by doubling our final goal amount! Your support over the past few years has meant the world to us and has helped us to keep going in this crazy endeavor that is music and we’re asking you to jump aboard this crazy ride and see what we can accomplish together!
