Hey there. Ten Past Seven want to make a new recording and we need your help!
We are an independent experimental/math rock band from Co. Kerry Ireland. In our 9 years of existence we have released 2 EPs, an album and a split 7 inch. Touring has taken us all over Ireland and the UK and included support slots for bands such as Lightning Bolt, Dj Scotch Egg, Pelican, Deerhoof and Zu.
As a band we have never asked for more than what our records cost to make. Due to the fact that each member of the band now lives in a different part of the country we have been concentrating more on writing new material than playing gigs. So, in order to create a record that surpasses all that we've done before, we're going to need your help.
This summer we aim to record a new EP. We’ve got around a half an hour of new music and want to do something special with it. We plan on recording at Black Box Studios, France with Spud (Guerrilla Sounds) and Dave Odlum. The hard-copy release will be an enhanced CD EP with the standard tracks as well as binaural and surround sound audio and video works. On top of all this we are going to be making a limited number of unique art pieces to accompany the disc only available to those who fund the project.
The idea behind funding the project in this way is to make it a non-profit release for Outonalimb Records. Also, embracing the nature of the digital age we live in, we want to be able to make our tracks available at no charge. We have decided to place the new recordings under the creative commons license allowing other artists to use our material for their own remixes, visual projects or other, without any red tape.
Digital copies of the EP will be advanced to all funders before they go public. Also as a funder you will get exclusive emails with updates and other perks such as live tracks, videos, full notation of many of our songs, information about the recording techniques and much more.
The €5000 we need will go towards studio rental, house engineer, additional mixing and mastering as well as the artwork and enhanced CDs.
You can help us by letting people know about what we’re up to and of course by funding our campaign.
It’s going to be legendary and we would love for you to be a part of it!
so so nearly there. This is a final shout out to all who have funded to help get us over the line. It will mean so much to us and our band will be forever in your debt.
If you think you can add even another 5 euro on to your current pledge it would make all the difference. Or maybe get one other person each to pledge (even though i know you probably have).
Thank's so much to you all and fingers crossed.

Thanks a million to everyone who'd got involved so far. We are really going to do something special for everyone who'd help us out.
We're going to do some demo recordings and film us having a jam at the weekend to give you a taste of what we're up to.
I haven't been hounding folks about this but seeing as we've got 20 days left we're going to up our game and make sure anyone who'd be interested can lend a hand.
PLEASE send us an email if there's anything puzzling you about the project. It took me a month to get my head around the crowdfunding idea alone.
