ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN!

🤗CAN YOU ACTUALLY BELIEVE?

It’s been one year… How much can happen in one year?
◾
We’re talking about our the crowdfunding campaign we concluded one year to date.
◾
At $13,180 it finished in the top 25% of music-related campaigns on Kickstarter that year.
◾
We really just wanted to finally release our album: -Stitched-… but being afforded so much more… and with $3700 in further contributions coming in after the fact… we went for it.
◾
Here’s what we were able to accomplish:

✔️Finished producing the album (and added a fresh Nicky Scarfo track!) in its entirety – 12 songs and a total of 15 tracks – mixed and mastered, pressed into 500 CDs

✔️Released 6 singles from -Stitched- including original artwork: Snake Pond, Boogie, Antisocial, Straight A’s (feat. Aspire), Blunts & Whiskey and Campbell Cup (feat. Inkspill & Junk)

✔️Released music videos for 3 of our singles: Boogie, Antisocial, Blunts & Whiskey and shot a fourth video which may or may not be on its way soon (rubbing hands together)

✔️Pressed fresh merchandise: ILL-Legit hoodies and T-shirts but also new things like ILL-toques and ILL-hats

✔️Covered costs for 2 years of hosting for ill-legitimate.com, online distribution for all of our artists’ music, and 3 strategy/development sessions with a music industry guru

✔️And what we didn’t expect to have happen: Toured through 8 countries across Europe opening for SNAK THE RIPPER
