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.
MayKay, Pockets, Lee, Conti, our Lord
