We seek funding to record a 12 song collection of our original music.
The band The Lords of Traction was founded years ago as the result of a common interest in British guitar rock. This beginning has evolved over the years to an overall sound that is guitar heavy and complex with positive, cerebral and reflective lyrics
We seek here on Kickstarter $15,000.00 to produce the band’s first studio recorded 12 song collection of our original music. This 12 song collection will be known as, At the Event Horizon. Our goal is to produce a work that is both critically acclaimed as well as commercially successful.
To bring our objective from idea to a fixed form suitable for commerce our plan calls for funds to pay for actually recording and mastering the 12 songs, to produce actual copies in a variety of audio formats and to provide a rewards budget for our generous contributors. Because the band lacks a web presence, funds are also needed to establish a website where our music will be available for sale. Finally, both Kickstarter and Amazon charge fees that must be paid from the money we raise here and this amount is included in our final funding goal.
We would feel that our objective will be reached and responsibility fulfilled to Kickstarter guidelines when all rewards are fulfilled and anyone can merely go to our website and purchase the 12 song collection we would make from the funds derived from this campaign. Our plan is to release At the Event Horizon to the public in September, 2012.
Please do bear in mind at this point that if we fail to meet our funding goal by the end of this campaign, no money will change hands and the endeavor will remain, merely, an idea. Our budget was created to ask for only the minimum required to bring At the Event Horizon to the marketplace. Any contributions in excess of our goal will be spent on higher production values and promotion to drive traffic to the website for commerce.
As an incentive for your contributions we are offering rewards which would be classified largely as band memorabilia and free, pre release copies of At the Event Horizon. The specific details of these rewards are explained on the right side of this page.
Essentially, the smaller contributors will be rewarded with downloads, CDs and cover artwork prints. Middle contributors will be made official “Under Lords” and will additionally receive a limited production gold colored metal medallion which will be referred to as a Lords of Traction MBE. The two patrons who contribute above $2,500.00 will additionally receive, each, one of the two guitars used on At The Event Horizon’s recordings. These two professional instruments actually shape the overall sound of the band and may be historically significant someday.
It is only after careful consideration, preparation and more than ample reflection that we have concluded that At the Event Horizon has a reason for being and would make a worthwhile addition to our established music culture. Please help us reach this goal by generously contributing today toward its existence.
Thank you for your support of our collective arts and culture.
