Crowdfunding since 2010
After two years of playing a lot of show, we want to give something to all of you, who have always strongly supported us. Our very first full length album. Some songs will be included which are allready real live hits, such as Halo Lights or Bushido, but we are also going to record many, many brand new, never before heard tracks. It will be a blast! However the production of an album is expensive and we still need €3,500. Without your help we can not do it!

Das Crowdfunding ist abgeschlossen/The crowd funding is finished

(ENGLISH BELOW) Hallo alle zusammen,
Das Crowdfunding ist jetzt beendet und mit einer ordentlichen Spritze am letzten Tag haben wir auch unser Ziel erreicht. GANZ, GANZ, GANZ, GANZ HERZLICHEN DANK, DAS IST SO MEGA!
Ihr fragt euch natürlich wie es jetzt weiter geht. Nun zuallererst müssen wir abwarten bis Startnext das Geld ausschüttet und die Kontaktdaten raus gibt und dann bekommen alle Unterstützer*innen eine ganz persönliche Mail und angehängt werden die Download-Dankeschöns sein, das komplette Album, nur ein Song… je nach dem was du bestellt hast ;). Außerdem werden wir uns dann auch dran setzen alle Post-Dankeschöns, die nicht im direkten Zusammenhang mit dem Album stehen (T-Shirts, die Ikarus-Ep, Hut oder Gasmaske usw…) ein zu packen und zu verschicken. Das Album selber, also die physikalische CD wird noch ein bisschen brauchen, da wir versuchen wollen ob wir für den Druck und die Promo Unterstützung von einem Label, einer Stiftung o.Ä. bekommen können. Außerdem wollen wir die Veröffentlichung dann auch gebührend feiern! Es stehen ein paar Ideen im Raum und wir garantieren euch, das Endergebnis in einer wunderschönen Verpackung mit einer ordentlichen Party wird das warten Wert sein!
Den Song VISIONS FADE den die Unterstützer*innen schon gehört haben, werden wir demnächst mit einem Lyrics-Video für die Öffentlichkeit auf YouTube bereitstellen. Ob und wie, vielleicht mal mit nem richtigen Musikvideo, wir noch weitere Songs vorab veröffentlichen, steht noch in den Sternen. Wir könnten es uns gut vorstellen aber das ist finanziell immer so ne Sache^^
Hi people!
Our crowd funding campaign is finally done and with a big shot in the arm at the last day, we actually made it. THANKS TO ALL OF YOU, SO, SO MUCH!
Of course you want to know, how we will proceed. Well first of all, we have to wait until Startnext sends us the Money and we receive the contact data of all the supporters. Afterwarts we send a personal e-mail to you with your ordered download give-away, if it's the whole album or just one song. Besides we will work to bring you very soon all postal orders except the physical CD (t-shirts, Ikarus-Ep, hat or gas mask etc…). The physical CD itself will take a bit longer because we are looking if we could work together with a label or foundation for promotion and print. Furthermore, of-course we want to celebrate the release with a big party. There are a few ideas floating around and we guarantee, it will be a blast and will be worth the wait!
We will release the Song VISIONS FADE as a lyrics-video on youtube very soon. Whether we release another song beforehand, maybe as a real music-video, still lies in the stars but piece by piece we are getting there^^
