I know they are ready to share it with you. Check out this song from the upcoming album, “Keep an Open Gallery,” and then make a donation so it can get printed and in our hands already!
“Hey there friends of Common Rotation!
It’s been a few months since we started our fundraising campaign for our two new albums and we couldn’t be more thrilled with our progress. We are happy to report that we’ve raised a little over $5000. All of us here would like to express our gratitude to those that have donated so far. Your generosity won’t be forgotten. Every step further along in the production of our records we’re reminded of how we couldn’t do this without you.
As we stand now the first of the two albums has been recorded. With the help of our good friends Brian Speiser and Julie Wolf we are proud to say we managed to track 13 songs in seven days. This means we have all of the vocals, guitars, banjos, bass, assorted stringed things, metal things you blow into, things with piano keys, and other things you bang on recorded for these songs.
Now comes the intensely boring and irritatingly long process of mixing and mastering. Not only is it time consuming, but it’s also quite expensive. This is why it’s essential we keep the contributions coming. There’s a lot more to be done before we get to picking out artwork and deciding whether or not we should press on clear vinyl…y’all have turntables right?
Though there’s a lot more funds to be raised to reach our goal of releasing two separate albums in the same year, we are on our way and it’s all because of supportive fans like you. By donating it not only helps us get our new music to you faster but it reminds us that Common Rotation has a place in your daily playlist. We do, right?”
Don’t forget there are perks to donating. A donation in the amounts listed gets you … :
