With the upcoming release of the 3-Track ‘Sanguine Sunset’ in 2019, Town of Cats are in need of new media, merch and equipment to see us into a new year, and hopefully the most successful one yet!
At the beginning of 2018, we began to pay money from gigs to the band members that played each show (prior to this all money went towards rehearsing, music videos and recording). This fee from each gig is split amongst 8-10 players, averaging out between £20-40 a head. With a band full of bar-supervisors, carers, students,music teachers and more, the money is a little compensation for the time that they are unable to fulfil these other roles in life due to being sweaty on a stage somewhere. We pay for our own rehearsals, in many cases our own travel and have still managed to save enough money for the bulk of our recording time.
We all absolutely love this band, we love our audiences and we love the venues we play and the things we get to see and do. However, it’s gotten to the point now where it’s so difficult for a ten piece band to earn enough money to eat whilst on tour (and at home when we’ve been touring a while) and also create promotional tools, recordings and merchandise to help support us along the way.
We are now asking for your help with this. We would like to make the following:
-Printed copies of the upcoming E.P ‘Sanguine Sunset’ along with more copies of our original album for hard copy sale.
-Merchandise to support the band on tour (T-Shirts, Tote Bags and Stickers).
-A concept Music Video for the E.P single release ‘Walls’.
-A professional live video recording of new material.
With all this produced, we believe we will be able to a) sufficiently support ourselves over the coming year, giving us the money we need to be able to rehearse and record new material, and b) use the promotional tools at hand to help us continue to expand our musical map and play to more people on both a national and international level.
So we’ve made this store, so you can help us without being empty handed!
Have a look at some of the goodies we have on offer and help make 2019 the YEAR OF THE CAT!
