Short Summary

We are DEAD SEASON, an independent metal/rock band from Maine formed in 2003.  Over the past decade we’ve made a name for ourselves writing songs with meaningful lyrics, top notch musicianship, and playing hundreds of intense live shows for our fans. We've sold 25,000+ cd's and proud to have done it all on our own, completely self-funded.

We decided to launch this campaign because we need your help.  Commercial radio is only playing and supporting national major label artists, people are buying less cd's than ever before, and attendance at shows is down due to the struggling economy.  Over the years we've been able to pay-off recording debts through cd sales and income from live shows but due to the issues mentioned previously we are struggling to afford the costs of recording new music.  Many continue to ask us "when are you guys going to come out with some new music?"…well, this is your chance to make it happen!

What We Need & What You Get

Here's the best part...we are going to give you something in return for helping us.  We are offering our new, unreleased song "Beyond Sympathy" to everyone that contributes $10 to our campaign!  We haven’t put anything out since 2011’s “The Negative NUMBers” ep so here’s how you can finally get a new ass-kicking song to add to your DEAD SEASON collection! There are also other cool perks for those able to contribute more than $10 such as t-shirts, live DEAD SEASON show at your house, and much more!  We are hoping to raise $10,000 which we’ll use to record new songs.  If we are unable to reach the entire goal we'll still be able to receive whatever funds have been raised.  Obviously the more funding we get, the more music we'll be able to put out.  Who knows, maybe we can surpass this goal if we get an overwhelming amount of support.  Depending on how much money is raised, we may be able to put together a small recording studio allowing us to record an unlimited amount of new music in the future!

The Impact

Many fans have contacted us over the years to tell us how much our music means to them and how it’s helped them through hard times in their lives (loss of loved ones, suicide, drug addiction, depression, etc).  These songs that we write and record are timeless, they will outlive us all.  Your contributions will allow us to keep putting new music into the world for everyone to enjoy for years to come.

Other Ways You Can Help

We completely understand if you are unable to contribute to our campaign at this time.  You can still help by spreading the word about and making a lot of noise about it on Facebook, etc.  If you can get others to contribute, that is a huge help to us and we greatly appreciate it!  Indiegogo has some great “share” tools to use on Facebook as well that we hope you will use to promote this campaign to all your friends and family.

We can't thank you enough for all your support over the years and for helping us out with this campaign!!!

Matt, Ian, Andy, and Steve
