Since our formation in 2009 we have played over 200 shows and released one Ep. We are now ready to release our debut album and we need your help!
Having played the material from the album at over 80 gigs this year including seven shows at Glastonbury we need your help to get the album released. Every penny donated will go towards the mastering/duplication of the album. We only need one more recording session to finish the album but financial difficulties will delay the album release significantly. We have spared no expense in recording this album and want to continue this attention to detail in the duplication and mastering of the album. The final product will be in a 4 page Digipack with an 8 page double sided gatefold sleeve. We also want to continue to give our music away for free online and plan to sell the physical copies for as low a price as we can.
So far we released all our music for free and whenever possible had no cover charge at our shows. We have reached a financial wall in the last few months having funded the recording of the album and making of the “White Lightning” music video ourselves.
We hope that you have as much belief in what we're doing as we do and want to help us finalise our dream of creating the best album we can. With this album we have painstakingly aimed to re create our live shows by recording all the tracks live, this has been challenging but has far surpassed the recordings we would have achieved using easier methods.
If our Fund it campaign is successful we hope to release our album in April.
The three of us Christy, Stephen and Gev would like to thank everyone who believes in us and without you this album would not be possible.
Crow Black Chicken began life as a blues band, and have since evolved into some kind of musical Frankenstein, fusing jazz, blues, punk, folk and rock to create something rather special. - BBC Introducing Glastonbury
