Who we are

Gran Turismo Veloce is an Italian progressive rock band. We have been playing across Europe and in Mexico for the past two years after the release of our acclaimed debut album "Di Carne, di Anima". For our second album we prepared something special, and we need your help for it to become a reality.

How the music business went wrong

The hard truth is that if you are not distributed by a Major it is virtually impossible to grow a solid fan base. And today, without a wide fan base, the record labels don't take you into consideration. Rather a vicious circle, isn't it? And yes, this is the truth, because it is exactly what the chairmen of the two most important progressive labels in the world told us when we spoke with them during our 2012 tour.

An offer they can't refuse

We and you are partner in this adventure.

On our part, we are ready to record a new album at Sphere Studio in London with TesseracT producer Francesco Cameli on the mix; orchestral parts will be played live, by real musicians, and we'll have stunning session men from all over the world as well.

On your part, by showing how much you care about our second album, you will convince the record labels there is still a strong interest in new music.

What we need...

As we said, we are partners: the budget for our next album is around 25.000 €. We gathered around 10.000 € by ourselves and we hope the rest will come with your help. Don't worry: we will make the album no matter what, so you don't waste your money in any case.

Here is the detailed budget breakthrough:

FAQ's

When will the album come out?

We have not announced a release date as of yet but will communicate that to you as soon as we get the deal with the label. Early 2014 is our best guess.

What if you don't reach the 20.000€ goal?

We'll find some way to gather what's missing to at least make a quality album. If no record label would greenlight our product, we will auto-produce the album. So, in any case, you won't loose your money and you'll get the perks you picked.

When will my stuff ship?

Just prior to release of the album (see above). Digital perks will be emailed to everyone at least 15 days prior to official release.

How do I pay for the shipping outside Italy?

After clicking "Contribute Now" and selecting your package, you can increase the contribution amount by € 6, 7, or 10 (please see perk description).

I forgot to pay for the international shipping!

No problem, just click "Contribute Now" again and make a contribution that is not for any specific package. Please make sure you make this contribution under the same email address as the original.
