What is this project all about?

We proved last year that with our KPFamily and our small independent record company killerpilzerecords we can turn the music world upside down . Now all of us will take the trip


What does that mean?
We are just starting to produce our new album and as we produce and manage everything ourselves with a small team and do not have the financial resources of a major record company , we need the support of YOU , our KPFamily , our listeners and fans.

Only together we can manage the trip ZUM KP DER GUTEN HOFFNUNG successfully and release the album . Every journey is more exciting the more people participate in it , get on board and accompany us to the destination. You are our driving force and we would like to have you here .

What do we need?
So we need money to produce, promote and distribute the album, as well as make videos. (You can read below where the money flows exactly!) But we don’t want this money just like that. NO!
Since we are on a journey, we will send you handwritten and personal postcards from all the places we will travel to in the coming months. This can be greetings from the studio, a HELLO from tour or notes of songs. But in addition to normal postcards and many other specials that you can buy (see on the right! ), we will send you also very special postcards ...


This means: if you and all of us together achieve our goal in 75 days, there will be the POSTKARTEN EP with new music completely for free to download for everybody who wants to have it. You can copy the songs , burn them, give them to your friends and you get this POSTKARTEN EP completely for free from us.

We also offer you EXCLUSIVE crowdfunding thank yous (see on the right) and limited packages of the album , which you can’t buy anywhere else. Only here, only now , only at startnext!
100 % of us for you!

With every purchase of our startnext – thank yous, you are helping us break the magic mark of 55,000 euros in 75 days .. Once we have reached the 100% mark , we can produce the album and yet publish it this year. In addition the EP will be released in late spring. If we don’t crack the said 100% , contrary to expectations, there certainly will be no costs for you and the money will be refunded , but you also won’t get any of the items offered and the EP can not be released.

All shipping costs are included in the prices, please keep that in mind! This can mean sometimes that people who live in Berlin for example , might pay a little more than people in, say, China. Each for everyone!

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

This goes out to YOU, member of the KPFamily .
This goes out to YOU, music lover and supporter of true indie work.
This goes out to YOU, because you like to get things that otherwise wouldn’t be available.
This goes out to YOU, because you want to hear hear hear the POSTKARTEN EP with new songs.
This goes out to YOU, because you believe in this journey ZUM KP DER GUTEN HOFFNUNG and like to be part of it.
This goes out to YOU, because you believe in a music business , in which you can hear music without a big label , without rules , without limit and in poor quality music. A business in which we can also set signs . Only US, YOU and MUSIC .

The goal is

55,000 EURO fifty-five thousand EURO!

For this money we can finance the entire ZUM KP DER GUTEN HOFFNUNG album campaign and therefore give you in return the POSTKARTEN EP, our music for free for downloading and free to spread and many more Thanks exclusive.
