|| WHO WE ARE ||
We are NIGHT RIOTS a band of close friends that grew up together in a tiny dot on the map town called Templeton in San Luis Obispo County, California. Despite our small town roots we have have accomplished some great things such as having our music videos featured on MTV, FUSE TV, and being hailed in Rolling Stone magazine as "One of the Top Unsigned Bands in the USA".
Recently, we changed our name from PK to NIGHT RIOTS due to legal reasons beyond our control. Over the past few months we have been diligently working on the BEST music of our career and need only to find the funding to release the EP. That is where you come in. We are now turning to crowd funding to facilitate an easy platform where YOU can be directly involved with our next release. We are offering limited edition perks which will be printed EXCLUSIVELY for this campaign and never printed again. Please watch the video above and join us in this campaign.
|| $25 FOR AN EP? ||
Although $25 may seem a bit much for an EP remember, YOU will not only be receiving exciting perks such as an EARLY RELEASE, YOUR NAME IN THE LINER NOTES, and CUSTOM GUITAR PICKS but most importantly YOU WILL BE FUNDING THE RELEASE OF OUR EP.
**FOR THE PERKS THAT INCLUDE SHIRTS AND HOODIES PLEASE WRITE YOUR SIZE NEXT TO YOUR NAME WHEN YOU ENTER IT. IF YOU'VE ALREADY ORDERED AND FORGOT TO INCLUDE YOUR SIZE, WE WILL CONTACT YOU BY EMAIL.
**FOR THE PERKS THAT REQUIRE SHIPPING, PLEASE JUST MAKE A NO PERK CONTRIBUTION FOR $5
(Remember, all perks are LIMITED and EXCLUSIVE to the campaign. T-shirts, Hoodies, Guitar Picks, Physical EP and Vinyl EP Artwork are a one time offer and will never be printed again.)
|| INDEPENDENT BAND ||
Since we are an independent band we have funded our entire music career by ourselves. Most bands start paying the band members at a certain point but to this day not one member of NIGHT RIOTS has been paid even $1. In fact, we have all worked part time jobs and even invested our personal savings to fund the band.
Via INDIEGOGO we can call on our loyal fan base, friends, family and the world to help us fund this first release under NIGHT RIOTS. One of the best parts of crowd funding is that every dollar received goes directly to us, giving us the ability to decide where the money goes and of course MAKE THE MUSIC WE WANT TO MAKE.
For us this is more than just a new EP. Our music is our identity and our future. We have been blessed with the opportunity to experience and learn so much already but we know we are an inch into a mile race and we have no plans of slowing down now.
Here's a projected budget to show you how we plan to allocate the funds.
(Budget is based on reaching our goal of $8000).
|| IT DOESN'T STOP THERE ||
As an independent band there is a constant need for more funding. So anything past the $8,000 mark will allow us to cover other costs such as: TOUR SUPPORT, PUBLICITY CAMPAIGNS, RADIO CAMPAIGNS, MORE MUSIC VIDEOS, A NEW TOUR VAN, VAN MAINTENANCE, GAS, FOOD, HOTELS, NEW MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS, MAKING MORE MUSIC and SO MUCH MORE. It never ends. There are always more ways we can use money to spread our music to the world and take our careers to the next level.
