Nasheville, TN at United Record Pressing being pressed on limited addition, glow in the dark vinyl as well as 180 gram black vinyl. It has been a very humbling experience and quite the process putting this album together and we could not have done it without all of the people who have supported us throughout these last three years. First, we would like to thank our families for supporting us in our decision to start a band. You have given us the confidence and courage to follow our dreams. Next we’d like to thank our friend Ben Cochran at Soap Floats Recording Studio for recording us in six days, it was a hell of a learning experience for all involved. We’d also like to thank our good friend Rich Haddad at Handcrafted Sonic Identity for mixing and mastering our album, you really brought this project to life. We’d also like to thank our friend Mike Greenler for lending a hand to the album artwork as well as our friend Josh Brueck for helping put our website together. Last but not least, we would like to thank all of our wonderful friends and fans for coming out and supporting the weird. We love you all.
out an album. We just wanted to update everyone on the status of our debut album. Currently, our album is being mixed and eventually mastered by a true professional as well as good friend, Rich Haddad, somewhere in the lovely state of New Jersey. We have been communicating with Rich via email and conference calls over the past couple of weeks to discuss the overall feel and sound of the album. We are very proud to say that this album is most definitely surpassing our expectations.See more.
The artwork for the album is coming along nicely and should be ready to send to the record pressing company in a couple of weeks. Unfortunately, vinyl is not an easy format in terms of a quick turnover. Whereas CDs take about 6 to 8 days to be pressed, vinyl is more in the category of 6 to 8 weeks, but I assure you that you will have this album in your hands by the very beginning of 2012. We do apologize for pushing back the release date, but we do not want to compromise the overall quality of our very first album. You only get one chance. We will keep you posted as to the exact date that we receive the albums. Until then, please stay tuned in to our website, facebook and youtube pages, as there will be many changes coming.Hide this content.
everyone who has stepped up and believed in us. Pharaoh Loosey would like to send out our sincere thanks for your support and willingness to participate in this creative journey with us. This album would not be possible without each and every one of you. The 35 people who pledged to our Kickstarter campaign may be wondering when you can expect your merchandise. As of right now, our album is being mixed and mastered by a professional engineer and trusted friend.See more.
If everything runs smoothly and keeps with our schedule, we should have product to send to you by the end of January. We will continue to update you as we receive new information on the progress. We will only be pressing 100 copies of the glow in the dark vinyl (the rest will be traditional black). So those of you that selected the vinyl as part of your reward will be getting an extremely rare item. We have also been informed by United Pressing that our album will be the last one they press on glow in the dark. (They are discontinuing glow in the dark). So you will indeed be receiving a very special item. Thanks again to our family, friends, and those who pledged that we do not personally know. You have know idea how much your support means to us. Please feel free to ask if you have any questionsHide this content.
9 days!!!!!!! We would like to thank everyone who has helped us to reach our goal!!!!!!!! We are overwhelmed by the kindness and support we have received from everyone. Last night we spent the night in the recording studio finishing up some of the tracks for the album. The next step will be sending it to be mixed and mastered. There is still lots of hard work to be done, but we assure you that we are working diligently to produce the best product possible. Again, we would like to thank everyone who has pledged so far and have helped make this dream come true. Please pass the word on about our pre-sale incentives as we still have 35 days left. Unfortunately, you can not end a project early, so everyone will still have to wait until the end of November to see the full finished product. The more money we raise, the bigger and better the album will be.
We love you all!!!!!!!!!!!!
Eric, Wayne and Grant
"Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects. Kicstarter believes that a good idea, communicated well, can spread fast and wide and that a large group of people can be a tremendous source of money and encouragement. Kickstarter is powered by a unique all-or-nothing funding method where projects must be fully-funded or no money changes hands." See more.
Our goal is to print our debut album on limited edition, glow-in-the-dark vinyl as well as on CD and also as a digital download. Kickstarter is an incentive based program that enables artists to raise money to fund their creative projects. As an independent band without a record label, it can be very expensive to press an album in any format. So our Kickstarter project is basically setup as a presale for the album with a few other incentives to add to the fun. Incentives range from a copy of the album on any or all formats to a private Pharaoh Loosey show where we provide the keg. Check out our Kickstarter video below and our actual Kickstarter project with incentives at www.kickstarter.com Today we are launching our Kickstarter project as a presale for our new album.
