Fight Like Apes new album fundraiser

By Fight Like Apes Fundit

description

Soooooooooooooooo..... There's probably very little to explain as you are already on our Fund it page. Needless to say, we're not suffocating in cash. In fact quite the opposite.

Regretfully we've left our label (Model Citizen). There's no bad blood as far as we're concerned, we just wanted different things for the band.
The good news is we have very little work left to do to finish a banger of a third album.

There's no point in dancing around this. We're going in alone so we're gonna need alotta help.

We’ve spent the last year writing and recording a load of bangers. But there’s so much left to do before we can get it out there and get back touring. Ash Workman (Metronomy) has his disgracefully capable hands at the ready to mix the album for us, which would be the first port of call for the money we need.

After that there’s artwork, mastering, PR and countless other things involved in having this ready to go. Other then the album itself getting finished, we need to be able to get back on the road, which we can’t do right now. This means costs for equipment, touring costs (our van is bust), etc.

We have a bunch of rewards (prizes? compo? Things you get in return?) listed below. Please feel free to suggest any other things you think we’ve missed out on!

Fight Like Apes are nowhere near finished. Not even close. If we had any other avenue of financing that didn’t involve outright asking the people that have already done so much for us we’d be taking it. But after countless chats between ourselves we’ve decided to go for this.

I think we’ve said enough. Any questions you guys might have regarding where the money’s going or our plans for the next while please ask and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

Thank you.

MayKay, Pockets, Lee, Conti, our Lord

Make sure you put your address into this form

Apologies for bothering you guys with another email! Hopefully, I won't have to bother you guys again. Just want to make sure everyone gets their rewards Only 222 people so far have put their details into this https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1feoa9EpvGbOYBx2UkYNw4Z1jHFQa1zFWNOBHXXEQzlc/viewform?usp=send_form Please do as soon as possible. I thrashed the original spreadsheet because of privacy concerns. This seems to be the best way to do it as it imports directly into a spreadsheet whereby i can print addresses from. If you have any special requests put them in other and we will try our best to facilitate them. We got so many emails yesterday I would be worried about missing something so if you can please use the google doc link above. It is completely private and safe. Thanks we love you all

New private form

Hey guys I'm really sorry but the recommendation of a few concerned fans we have decided to scrap that public form as it certainly does have a few privacy issues. Here is a new form to fill in which is private. Im deleting the other form. So if you could fill in this private link that would be awesome https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1feoa9EpvGbOYBx2UkYNw4Z1jHFQa1zFWNOBHXXEQzlc/viewform?usp=send_form If you could fill this in it would be great. I will double check just o make sure all the rewards match up ; ) Sorry for all the emails today. This should take care of it. If you have a t-shirt preference or request. Please click other and write the details. UDABES

Emails taken off spreadsheet

Someone just pointed out that emails could get harvested for spam so ive taken your emails off the spreadsheet. Silly mistake on my part. They are gone now!

Addresses for rewards

Hey Guys So a week and half till our albums out! It is finally happening. Thank you so much for your patience. You have been the most incredible fans any band could wish for. It took a lot longer than expected were really looking forward to you guys hearing the record and getting your rewards. I stupidly thought that we got a list of addresses off fund it but unfortunately that is not the case. As there is quite a few of you guys and dealing with individual emails when writing the envelopes could be a nightmare I have created a spreadsheet where you guys can input your addresses beside your names. I hope this is okay. It just makes it that little bit easier and guarantees that I don't actually miss anybody by accident. I know some people will have issues with privacy in relation to this and that is no problem. If you could just email your name and address to funditflapes@gmail.com i can input it myself I have also put a column to the right where you can put your preference for t-shirt size/colour. the link for the spreadsheet is here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1qhXpIoiKWQ_pNHUattYzvaKSKsJKQ_BDGYMkJUfPouk/edit?usp=sharing I'll get posting as soon as the addresses start coming in. Thank you again. You are a wonderful bunch! Hopefully see some of you guys as the escape of the planet of the apes gig! Please come up and say hi. We really enjoy thanking people in person! Also if there is a problem with your reward or a mistake made then change it. we trust you, Again if you have any problems with privacy in relation to this please just email funditflapes@gmail.com with your name and address. Cant wait for you guys to hear the album. We are very proud of it and hope you will love it as much as we love you guys for making it happen. xxx Flapes

Hey Funders!

Hey Funders! Sorry again it's been so long since we've updated you all specifically. We've talked a lot in interviews about the progress of the album but have realised that we haven't kept you guys, the most important ones, directly updated as we should have. The plan is to have the album out this October. I hope you all understand that we can't give it to you any sooner than that. This would all just been in vain if we don't release it properly and make sure we do the best we can with it. There are some rewards we can fulfill before that time, such as the camping trip (anyone on that option will have an email from us this week with exciting plans!) Here are 2 links to live versions we recorded recently with Press Record productions of 2 songs off the album. Hope you enjoy them!

Updates!

A million thanks to everyone who's gotten involved so far. From funding to sharing to telling people, all makes a difference and is hugely appreciated. We're going to put up some videos next week of us doing some live versions of new songs, give you an idea of what we're at with the new album. MK x

Day 1. Me nerves.

What a deadly start. Thank you everyone! You're all so sound and are going to heaven. I was told.
