Weโ€™re talking about our the crowdfunding campaign we concluded one year to date.
โ—พ
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-โ€ฆ but being afforded so much moreโ€ฆ and with $3700 in further contributions coming in after the factโ€ฆ we went for it.
โ—พ
Hereโ€™s what we were able to accomplish:

โœ”๏ธ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

โœ”๏ธReleased 6 singles from -Stitched- including original artwork: Snake Pond, Boogie, Antisocial, Straight Aโ€™s (feat. Aspire), Blunts & Whiskey and Campbell Cup (feat. Inkspill & Junk)

โœ”๏ธ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)

โœ”๏ธPressed fresh merchandise: ILL-Legit hoodies and T-shirts but also new things like ILL-toques and ILL-hats

โœ”๏ธCovered costs for 2 years of hosting for ill-legitimate.com, online distribution for all of our artistsโ€™ music, and 3 strategy/development sessions with a music industry guru

โœ”๏ธAnd what we didnโ€™t expect to have happen: Toured through 8 countries across Europe opening for SNAK THE RIPPER
