With a bit of unashamed self promotion, I would like to bring your attention to an album that I am releasing with my writing partner Matthew

The link below is a short promo featuring some of the music.
The album will go on pre-sale via Kick-start on Friday.

Kick-start is a funding site that will enable us to press the album on vinyl and CD and give an indicator of how many we need to press to make the project financially viable.
The album has been recorded and ready to go. We hope there is enough interest and sales for the album that the pressing of the album can go ahead.

I will post a link on Friday to the Kick-start page for anyone who is interested in buying a copy.

Supporting this album will also go towards supporting this site, and we hope we have enough people pledge to buy the album to get us over the financial line.

The album is called Afterworld with 10 original songs and will be released on:
12" Vinyl in a gatefold sleeve
CD with 16 page booklet
Limited signed print of the artwork
T-shirt.

The pre-sale for our album can be found here:

https://kck.st/48WrRZm

You can now pledge to buy our album at KickStarter

How this works:
This will run until 1st March. Within that time you pledge to buy which ever of the packages that you want.

No money is taken at the time of purchase and the payment will be deferred until 1st March at 17:00

This will only happen if we reach the target to press the minimum amount of Vinyl CD that the pressing plants will make.

Your account will be debited on that day but if there is not a big enough pledge to reach our minimum target then no money is debited and we can't press the album.

It will take approximately 10 weeks to press the records and we will send everything out approximately mid May. Thank you for your patience.

A couple of things to consider that Kick-start have as a default:

There is a 'Pledge With No Rewards' option.
This is to make a donation to the project with no goods in return.

You can't buy more than one of each Reward from the same account, so for Example you wanted 2 of the Bundles, you would have to sign in with 2 different accounts.

Thank you for pledging to buy our album, something that we have put our heart and soul into creating and we hope that you will be pleased with the results when you receive your copy.

J.O'B.

I ordered MJM's "Afterworld" yesterday and hope that there are enough clients which will do the same - because I really want to have my copy. Watch the teaser video on YouTube, it's a very good piece of music!

Thanks to those of you that have pledged so far.
The pledge time closes at 5PM tomorrow and we are almost there.
We appreciate those of you that have pledged so far and hopefully some more of you could pledge to get us over the line or the album doesn't get released.

J.O'B.

Thank you to those of you who pledged to buy our album.
We reached our target, so 'pledged' is now 'bought'

The vinyl and CD will be ready around mid May.

J.O'B.

Congratulations, John and Matthew, you finally made it 8-) . I'm really looking forward to the album. Would it be possible that you both sign the album ... ? But I'm afraid that is too much effort for you because too many people wish you to do so ;).
