Why We Are Doing ThisSky Road Fly has been playing around Madison, WI since 2009. We're a high energy rock band that combines the best of the 70's and the 90's to create a unique sound that demands to be heard. We released our first full length album last year and supported it with a Midwest tour.
As lifelong musicians, we've fully appreciated and relished each milestone we've reached as a band. The first song. The first show. The first radio interview. The first album. The first van. The first tour. All of these kinds of special moments will always stand out as great times in our lives.
We want you to be a part of our next "first." The idea of releasing a full length album on vinyl is a dream come true for the band. Not only are we excited to store our copies alongside the classics in our collections, but we feel like we've got the songs to back it up. We've spent a lot of time on preproduction to ensure that the album will be fluid, sound great, and have the high energy that we're known for live.
The timing feels so right to invite you a little deeper into the band. Join us!
What We Need & What You GetThere are a lot of costs involved in recording a non-live album. We tried to cut out as many of those costs as possible. Instead of paying for studio time, we invested in some professional gear to upgrade our practice space to a recording studio. This will allow us to put the time needed into recording and mixing without having a clock in our face. This was a great investment, but it ate up all of our band savings.
There's still some gear and microphones that we're going to need to rent to pull this off in our new little studio. We will still need to pay for proper mastering and artwork before we even get to the vinyl part. At a price tag of over $1600, the actual record pressing is going to be the bulk of the expense. We've decided to do a high-quality small first run of the album to make it special.
Basically, pre-ordering the album is going to allow for us to pay for it.
Just $5 will get you a digital copy of the album that will be available for download as soon as we're done. The vinyl record is obviously the crown jewel of our campaign. We've decided to do it right and press our copies at United in Nashville, TN. If you grab a record to support us, you'll be melting in no time.
If you only have a little bit to spend, you can still get your name in the liner notes of the record for just $2! Even if your name is Mike Rotch!
This campaign is set up in a way that we will receive anything you give us. It's not a "raise all the money or get nothing" situation. However, our fee to Indiegogo gets reduced from 9% to 4% if we do meet our goal. Help us get there!
