Our band religious girls, an Oakland, CA based, experimental pop band formed in 2008, has been DIY or Die up until this point and are having a hard time maintaining the costs of being a productive touring band without the support of a major label, so we are asking for your support! Over the years we have gone through tons of trials and tribulations. We’ve toured the U.S. 3 times prior to this, have released an ep on vinyl called MIDNIGHT REALMS, and are currently in the final stages of putting out our first full length called I WANT TO BELIEVE. We have been finished with this record for over a year, and actually have another full length ready to be recorded! Our good friend Daniel Schlett at strangeweather studios in NY has offered us a great deal to record while we are out there! He's a cool a guy, has worked with a bunch of amazing musicians and we are super stoked! Deals are awesome but the recording process, mixing, and mastering is tedious and takes money. ($3000 :/)
Enroute to this, we plan on doing a 45 day tour of the entire country and this includes SXSW~ We played it 2 years ago, managed to play 6 shows in 24 hours as well as a bunch more. We even managed to help coin the awesome unofficial SXSWENDYS showcase. We cant wait to rage sxsw and due to our wonderful friends around the country, most of our show guarantees will pay for gas, but our van, sadly, has been having a few problems. We love everything about SHRED VAN: its beautifully hand painted exterior, modified interior (shag carpets), and even it's gas guzzling V8. It has taken us around the country 2.5 times, and it's definitely going to need some repairs to withstand another 13,000 mile trip before we retire our baby($500 :/). If we can not manage to get the van in proper shape before the tour we are going to use these funds to help purchase a van that will!
