Last summer we were lucky enough to receive funds to record our debut album “On Our Side.” It was enough money to record and mix a full length record, 11 songs all together. With your generosity we will be able to ensure a proper release of our record! We will use all funds within our initial goal to pay for the following:
Mastering (mastering equalizes all mixes on an album to maintain continuity)
CD Printing & Pressing
Official Erland T-shirt Production
Music Video Production for One Song
Our initial goal will give us an amazing head start but it is only the beginning. Our producer and friend Andrew McMahon will be taking us on the road as an opening act for his next tour. This is such an incredible opportunity for us to promote our debut album. Unless we pick up tour support from a record label we will need to pay our own way. All funds raised beyond our initial goal will go towards the following:
Much Needed Gear
Website & Social Network Design & Development
Additional Merchandise Production
Additional Music Video Production
Print & Web P.R.
We’ve teamed up with PledgeMusic to bring you into our world as the album is released. Here’s how it works – you can pledge for any of the items listed on the right side of the screen. We’ve made every item as fun as it could be, as well as totally exclusive to this campaign. Everyone who pledges will get a digital download of the new album on January 15th, 2013.
Once you pledge, the doors open wide and you get instant access to the ‘pledger-only’ part of the site. Here, we bring you into our world where you’ll get campaign exclusive videos & pictures, sneak peaks at final mixes from the album, and updates on our progress.
Best of all, a portion of the pledges after our initial goal is met will go to our producer Andrew McMahon’s charity – The Dear Jack Foundation -- an organization dedicated to the advocacy and initiatives that benefit the lives of those fighting young adult cancer. Andrew started this organization after his own battle with cancer and continues this very important work.
Join us in this exciting new adventure!!!
