In 2016 we spent two months in and out of the studio recording our new album. Taking weeks on and off to busk on Grafton St, selling copies of our first album and working hard to pay for more studio time.
Our album is fully recorded :) but it still has to be mixed, mastered, printed and promoted.
We are an independent band so it will just be the four members of the band with help from some of our close friends and family (and you!!) to spread the word of this Fund it campaign.
In September, Dublin City Council introduced new regulations that made it more difficult for us to busk on Grafton Street and raise the necessary funds for our second album. So we're now looking for the help of our fans to get the this album over the finish line. Many of who may have discovered the band through us busking. We are basically just asking for our fans to buy their album download, vinyl or gig ticket in advance! Not sure a big deal to you but if we get enough people on board this is huge for us! If people have a few extra quid to spend we have plenty more adventurous rewards on offer as well!
Album mixing - €1900
Album mastering - €600
Album design and first vinyl print run - €2500
Album and first single PR including music video - €3000
We are really proud of the songs we have written and delighted with how the album is sounding. However we worry that without the right promotion behind it we will not be able to get our music out to the all those that will enjoy it. That's why a significant portion of the funds raised here will go towards our first music video and promotion of the album.
To anyone who has helped fund our second album we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We're forever grateful and super excited for you all to hear it. Thank you :)
Love, The FitzaFrenic
