Hi everyone

As some of you might have already heard I am just about to embark on making my first solo record while Fightstar take a well earned break!

I am incredibly grateful for all the support I have been given from the fans over the past few years and now I have a great opportunity to involve you in the process of making my record, with the help of Pledge Music.

Not only are these ideas designed to bring us together, they will also give you the chance to get and do some really cool stuff along the way. I’m making available things such as signed CDs, the chance to get your name in the album credits, personalised lyric sheets printed on parchment, signed guitars that I will be using to make the record & some pledgers-only gigs. I will also be doing some personal private shows and giving you the chance to come and hang out at rehearsals.

Your Pledge will also gain you exclusive access to my “pledgers only" updates page on which I will be posting demos, live tracks, rough mixes, videos, and all things that I can think of to keep you as involved as possible, whilst I am in the studio.

Lastly, as it’s something that has directly affected my family, I’ve decided to donate a percentage of the profits from this Pledge to Breast Cancer Research. If you’d like to find out more, please go to www.cancerresearchuk.org/breastcancer.

I’m very excited about this new way to connect with you guys – giving you creative ways to get involved in a way that really helps me as an artist and gives you, the fan, something special and something different.

Thanks for being part of this.

Charlie
