NEW MONSOON - TIME WON'T WAIT - HELP KICKSTART OUR NEXT STUDIO ALBUM!
San Francisco's free-flying rock quintet New Monsoon is heading back into the studio and we want you along for the ride!
New Monsoon is using Kickstarter to record, produce, distribute and promote a brand new studio album of material "never before played live" and some tracks that have been played but never recorded in the studio. Best known for exciting live performances, New Monsoon has released many live recordings over the past several years. Most of these recordings have been provided for free online on sites such as archive.org, for fans to enjoy. There is certainly something special about capturing a good live performance and over the years New Monsoon has delivered. Now we'd like to deliver a fantastic studio album. Since our last studio release in 2007, "New Monsoon V", the band has been through many ups and downs... hard touring, line-up changes, growing families, etc..
WE HAVE A LOT TO SAY MUSICALLY...
And the best way to capture what this band has to say in 2013, after a decade of touring and going strong, is to GET IN THE STUDIO! We grew up on great albums... Dark Side of the Moon, Abbey Road, Led Zeppelin III, etc. Studio recording allows the details to come to light. Capturing the sound of the instruments and the ability to mold and create the overall sound of the music with quality recording gear is simply a different level of intimacy with the art and the musicians themselves.
WE WANT TO REWARD YOU...
For being such a supportive and musically sophisticated audience. Over the years we have met some of the kindest, generous folks on the planet. We've worked incredibly hard to survive and thrive since the band's birth in the late 90's and touring since 2003.
YOU'VE TAKEN CARE OF US ON THE ROAD...
and now we ask you to donate to our Kickstarter campaign. The Money we are asking for will be used for recording costs, production and mixing, duplication and promotion. As we all know the days of "record deals" are only for those already at the top of the heap. For those of us in bands who continue to make music without big label support, WE NEED YOU!
FOR YOUR DONATION...
you'll receive quality products...the CD and Digital Download of the new album but also a host of offerings ranging from a New Monsoon live performance in your living room, to a bbq at a band members house, to a lesson with a member of the band.
Once again for your support. We can't do this without you!
Bo, Jeff, Phil, Marshall and Michael
