Third aim reached!!!
We are very happy and deeply grateful: due to you all we've obtained our third aim! We'll be able to edit the disc, and in addition we'll be able to make an acoustic exclusive concert for all the patrons and to record the concert of presentation of the disc (December 19th, Tarragona). We have no words...
... Well, yes, we've four words: THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!
AppleSmellColour is a Progressive Rock band founded in Tarragona in 2012. The band is composed of Lluís Barceló (guitar), Àngel Arroyo 'Loti' (bass), Marc Claramunt (drums), Pep Espasa (guitar, saxophone and flute), Mo Espasa (keyboard) and Uri Mas (vocals and guitar). After three years of composing, we have recorded our first album: Unscrupulousness. The name of the band is inspired by a poem written by Gabriel Ferrater.
the light is dying on us
that was honey-colored, and that now
has the apple smell colour"*
The album is a piece of conceptual work which addresses the lack of scruples in its broadest sense: the origins and the development of the universe, the evolution of life on Earth, the massive exploitation of natural resources, current social conflicts and the class struggle in pursuit of a new social paradigm, the emotions and contradictions arising from falling in love and love relationships, the contemplation and the relentless passage of time and finally, the inevitable death which leads us to a universe not governed by scruples or human morality.
Listen to three songs from the album here:
What are we going to spend the money on?
The album has already been recorded and mixed, but we need your help to launch it under the best possible conditions. The money raised through verkami will be used to master and edit the album in physical format. Part of the money is set to go to special rewards in exchange for your precious contribution!
About special rewards
The main goal of this verkami project is to make possible for the album Unscrupulousness to be released as a small and humble piece of artwork. That's why we are putting so much effort into the design and conceptualization of the album. If you want to, you can also be a part of the album. To do so, we have prepared a set of special rewards that can be yours by becoming a patron.
Besides the physical album and a t-shirt that will be sent to you by mail (Carriage paid within Spain) or handed over to you at the concert, a special edition of the album can also be yours. It includes an unreleased acoustic track and it will be delivered in a special hand-made packaging (limited to 100 units). But we want to take it one step further: that's why we are going to create a graphic novel with text and illustrations based on our music.
We also offer the opportunity both for institutions and individuals to pick your favorite song (probably it's one of our favorites too!) from a progressive rock list to be played at the release concert. Or you can get a song specifically composed for your special one!
Finally, with great pleasure we will give an acoustic or electric concert (sound expenses included) for the most generous patrons.
You will find out more details on each reward during the campaign. Stay tuned!
The album is ready and the design in progress - this means once the verkami project is over, it's time for getting down to work and prepare the packaging and rewards. It will take us about two or three months to get everything ready. We will start shipping the rewards by the end of the year!
