Friends,
We’ve had an amazing summer of touring, recording, touring while recording and meeting lots of new people along the way. Our experiences have left us with lots of stories to tell–many of which can be found here and here in video, photo and blog forms.

As many of you know, we have been itching to release some new music to follow up our first full-length, “20,000 Ghosts”. We decided on an EP–to be released in November (date TBA), and we want your help to put it out!

We wanted to do something different, something that allowed us creative and financial freedom but didn’t fit into the traditional mold of producing a record. With no record label, no heavy-hitting corporate folks behind us, we decided to ask our friends to purchase our new EP before it comes out (and receive lots of other sweet incentives, too) to help us with the cost of engineering, mixing, mastering and duplicating–and that’s what we’re requesting of you!

So we signed up for Kickstarter, a website that allows artists to raise money for creative endeavors to alleviate some of the cost of being an artist. The basic idea is that if you donate $10 or more now, we’ll send you the EP before it comes out, along with several other Rocketboys rewards. You can donate as little as $5 or as much as you want–and every single penny will go toward releasing the new EP in November. So you’re basically serving as our record label because, with a donation now, comes a free EP later. It all evens out, more or less.

We want to reach our goal of $3,500 by October 4–48 days from now. We are right at about $420 and we need your help to reach our goal. If we don’t reach our goal, no money will be exchanged. We don’t want that to happen, so we encourage you to visit our Kickstarter page and see what it’s all about.

Again, we love the idea of community involvement in creative projects and this is our way of involving our friends and fans in what we live to do–create new music. Get involved in helping us fund our new EP by pleding some money–basically pre-buying your new EP.

We’re forever grateful for your support and we can’t wait to see you on one of our upcoming tours! Click the logo below to visit our Kickstarter page, and watch this sweet video to see our recording on the road!

Love,

The Rocketboys
