Man Woman Machine formed back in January 2013, and what a crazy 4 years it has been! After releasing a debut record FROM DARKNESS in 2013, the band fought their way through a lineup change, solidifying the lineup of Tracey (vocals) and Joe (synths/programming/vocals) in July 2014 and embarked on a quest to create the definitive album of their collective music careers.
Rather than attempting to create a FROM DARKNESS II, the band opted to reinvent the band from the ground up....veering sharply off course into the world of modular synthesis.....
Three and a half years later.......
Man Woman Machine are beyond ecstatic to announce their brand new full length record, entitled ULTRA-XENOSONIC !!!!!
Clocking in at 50 minutes, the record showcases a brand new prototype for industrial/electronic music. Hyper-experimental. Unique in design. Jam-packed full of infectious dance grooves. Moody, but fun. And it contains more hooks than your grandfather's tackle box.
This is where you come in......
Everyone knows that making music is not cheap.....especially when you have fallen down the rabbit hole known as modular synthesis. And at the end of the day, it isn't always possible to save up the funds to launch a new album when you still have your own bills to pay.
In our case, we are only asking for $2,500.
This will cover the costs of mastering the record (being handled by Sebastian Komor of Icon Of Coil fame), professionally replicating CDs through Discmakers, t-shirt printing, and shipping costs/Indiegogo fees. Any additional funds raised will go towards BONUS LEVELS, then filming a music video or two for this record.
We also want to thank you for helping us make this possible. And we will show that by keeping your costs down. We want to give you more bang for your buck, so we are keeping our reward tier amounts low. Price-wise, this should feel more like a pre-order....rather than an attempt to unload a pile of merch at inflated prices. Rewards/perks will include downloads, physical CDs, exclusive t-shirts, remixes (of your band, by us), collaborations, and more!!!!
And did we mention the BONUS LEVELS?!?!?!?! If you help us make this a success, we want to return the favor! We have plans laid out for a few bonus levels, where contributors at most tiers will receive extra goodies just for being a part of this! We will spill the details on those levels as they approach!
By contributing to this campaign, you will help us reach the super awesome destination at the end of a 4 year trek. As artists, there is nothing more exciting than releasing your new record out into the world after several years of pouring everything you are into it. This record far exceeded our own expectations, and we are DYING to get it out!!!!!
As we mentioned previously, the album is completely recorded and ready to be shipped off to mastering....so there really isn't any risk. It'll take about a month to get through the mastering/pressing process, and we will ship out rewards as soon as we have the items for your order together.....we know that waiting SUCKS!!!! In the meantime, the downloads will become available shortly after the record returns from mastering... so at least you can bump to the new record while you wait for your super awesome physical copies and t-shirts to arrive! As for the remix/collaboration rewards, the sooner you send us your stems/tracks, the sooner we can get started!
We get it that sometimes people get a little strapped for cash. But you can still help make this a successfully funded campaign that will allow us to press this album..... therein making it possible for you to obtain a copy later.
SHARE this campaign with your friends!!! Do they like electronic music? Do they like female vocalists? Are they sick of hearing the same boring music again and again and are looking for something new and fresh for their ear-orifices? TELL THEM ABOUT THIS PROJECT!!!!!!
We will love you forever for doing so!!!!!
Thank you very much for reading this! Now join us in making this happen!
