So...here we are. 

Not as a band, but as three men (well...basically.) looking to our fans, not for a plea or begging, but for honest help. We need to be able to go on tour. We also really need to prepare for recording our next album. Finally, we REALLY want to release our sophomore EP, "Faith, Fear, and Hope" early. And physically, at that. 

Being in a band isn't as glamorous as MTV and YouTube makes it out to be. (Are bands even on MTV anymore?) 

It costs a LOT of money to deliver the music we want to deliver to our fans. We have spent, and I literally tallied this, ~$21,000 out of our own pockets to fund the band from 2010 until this day, in the year 2013. That is a lot of money for broke musicians. We have pulled a lot of sacrifices to make this band reach incredibly far heights, places we never dreamed of reaching. We have played on the Vans Warped Tour. Twice. We are very close to being able to play for a third time! This is something we dreamed about as 14 year olds writing music and singing together. We never thought we'd have the chance. 

We've booked our own tours. Filmed our own music videos (to great fan response, might I add. (Our last video got 21,000 views in, like, THREE days!!) We have played music with some of our idols, and gotten to share a song with one of the best vocalists out there today. AJ, we're looking at you my friend! 

I could continue, but you understand by now. This is a dream that has been realized in a way that just wasn't fathomable to us. Ever. Even now, we thank everyone daily, via texting, Twitter, Facebook, or whatever else, for the incredible opportunity it is to play in this band for all of our fans. But now, we are coming to you with the need for help. We don't want to ask you to fund our tour and our next recording project for nothing, so we are including awesome perks for every backer. From $1 to $3000, you'll be getting something we have put a lot of thought into. 


We are feverishly and viciously taking the next step to making Dear You the next big thing. We love the amount of fans we have now, but we want to be on your TV, your iPods, your computer screens, and on that weird billboard the city installed thats really big and fancy. Basically, we need to grow bigger. 

We really need your help here. If you can find the time to throw anything down for this band, you will be greatly rewarded. Drop your cell number in when you pay for your perk, we will send you a text message and personally thank you. This is really THAT important. Thank you so much for reading this, you are all beautiful. Just by taking a look, you've already helped.

Love always,

Chris, Mason, and Louis

    No, seriously! Get THE microphone Chris and Mason have used at all of their shows! (We trade off. Sometimes we do awesome 80's-style vocals on the same mic. It depends on the mood.)
