The New Album:
I'm Jon Hardy and I'd like to thank you for taking a look at our Indiegogo campaign. As the promo video explained, we're hard at work on our new record. We've been making and performing music for quite some time now and this is the most excitement we've had over a batch of songs. We can't wait to get them out into the world.
Here's what the Indiegogo campaign means:
Without a record label, we have to come up with all the money necessary to record and produce our albums. We've always found a way to pay for them ourselves. This is our most ambitious project to date and so we have a bit of a budget shortfall. We're asking you to buy in to the music early and help us get this thing finished. There are plenty of online fundraising projects out there and so we spent a lot of time thinking about how to reward contributors. We've come up with options that have real value: new music and live performance. Every contribution level has a meat and bones perk on the other end; an honest-to-goodness capitalist transaction. And you can be sure your money is being put to good use. Here's how the $10,000 breaks down
- ~$4,000 for tracking and mixing
- ~$2,500-3,000 for mastering
- ~$3,000 for physical album production
We hope you'll partner with us to get this record finished. Order your copy today, or go in for some of the bigger items like show tickets, thanks in the liner notes, or even a private show of your own! Make sure to pass this on as well. I can tell you that I've met plenty of fans who know us because a friend gave them our music and said, "you've gotta listen." So please, pass this on. If you don't have the money to buy anything right now, just help us get the word out; every little bit helps. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this far. Stay tuned for more music.
