We need your BRAINS!!!

Islanders! We need you!

Our next IGG campaign will be launching soon (for our upcoming full-length album & other stuff) & we need your ideas & suggestions!

We anticipate our campaign will need a goal of about $18,000 (possibly more). Here's a list of what we will apply these funds to:

*Hiring a professional producer, professional recording studios, mixing & mastering engineers (no more DIY)
*CD artwork & full booklet design, professional photo shoot for photos to use in CD booklet, posters & online promo
*CD duplication/packaging/distribution & related copyright fees
*New album merch (t-shirts, posters, etc)
*A potential short Scandinavian tour (round-trip airfare, lodging, petrol, transportation & a small food budget)

We can offer up to 20 perks. Here are some of our most successful from our previous campaign & some extras we've already received as suggestions. We need your feedback & ideas for additional perks, or any modifications you think should be made.

*NOTE* Prices include estimated international shipping, however, if Indiegogo has a shipping calculator tool (which I think it does now) we may reduce these current quotes to show actual perk price.
