After playing numerous gigs, practicing for hundreds of hours in the band room and gaining a 3rd = placing at the 2017 NZ Battle of the Bands from 90 odd bands it's now time for us to record and release some material, reward our current fans, friends and family, plus build our audience by reaching out with this material to promoters of gigs and festivals
We're totally committed to recording, releasing and sharing our songs and have already managed to put some funds aside but we'll need some help to make this a reality.
We've booked recording sessions on the 17th and 18th of May with Lee Prebble at The Surgery studios in Newtown. Lee will record and mix our songs for us as we trust his ear, has an impressive line up of Tui awards in the kitchen plus he's worked with the likes of The Blackseeds, Dave Dobbyn, Phoenix foundation, The Nudge, Trinity Roots and many other solid bands and soloists.
We'll have Mike Gibson from Munki master the recordings for us as he comes highly recommended and has worked with the likes of, Flight of the Concords, Stereogram, Fat Freddies, Trinity roots, Rhombus and many others
Initially we have four songs tight fully rehearsed and ready to go, so will get those down first
Crazy town, Walk of Shame, Closer, and Blackyard.
There's another two songs close to ready which we'll get up to speed before recording these are "You Go" and "Think" which we've performed live at lovelands and Valhalla already, with some others like "Vigilante Panda", "Fire Flower" , and "Blood Moon" that may end up turning our EP into an Album as there's a few more in the background bubbling away.
Thanks for your time.
100% of the pledged funds will be spent on this, with any extra going to produce more songs.
Here's a breakdown of what we'll spend the money on
$2,500.00 Recording and Mixing
$1,500.00 Production, design and printing
$1,000.00 Distrubution, Marketing and new website
