UPDATE: There’s 23 days of campaign left and not only have we achieved our first goal, but we have also surpassed the other two phases that we set just in case some insane person had the crazy idea of changing the band’s name. Of course we could not have even imagined it! These days we have been discussing about what to do with the extra money that you are entrusting us and we concluded that, in addition to recording as many songs as possible, we want to invest this extra money in a video-clip for which we will count on the help a wonderful team. For that, we now set a new goal of 3000€, which will allow us to finance the work of this fantastic team, who like many other brilliant professionals of the audio-visual scene, are used to being slaves of non remunerated friendship. We have no doubt that the result will be fantastic! Thank you very much to all of you for believing in us! Cheers and music!


The band was founded in 2011 and since then has performed in numerous venues and bars in Barcelona. Over time, the band has grown to reach its current formation of six members who have found a very characteristic style inspired by Anglo-Saxon folk, indie music and Balkan sounds.

After two years of concerts, Cassandra 's Sons is now entering a new phase where we intend to record our first EP. This will give us the possibility to offer more concerts in different venues and locals around Catalonia.

THE PROJECT

The EP has an estimated cost of at least € 1,500, an amount that will allow us to record three or four songs. That´s why all your contributions are more than welcome!

However, with this initiative we aim to reach 1300 € because we think it is a significant enough amount that will allow us to start recording thanks to your help. For this reason, we have identified three distinct phases that we can achieve as the amount increases:

1 . First phase: € 1,300. With this amount we will be able to record at least 3 songs at the Aurha Studios.

2. Second phase: € 1,700. With this amount we will be able to record 3 or 4 songs, prepare merchandising and our website.

3. Third phase: € 2,000. Finally, if we get this amount we will be able to record 4 to 5 songs, prepare merchandising, our website and be very, very happy !

The rewards will be delivered during the presentation concert of the EP in mid-2014. Do not worry, those of you who cannot come will get their rewards at home!

SCHEDULE

We are currently working on music production and estimate that recording will start in mid-March. We are also currently designing the CD artwork, t-shirts and preparing the website.

The date of the concert of presentation will depend on the number of songs we end up recording thanks to your help. We will keep you informed as we move into the recording phase.

#05 / Pròxima parada: Videoclip!

Queden 23 dies de campanya i no només hem assolit l’objectiu inicial, sinó que ja hem superat les dos fases posteriors que havíem posat per si de cas a algun tarat se li acudia canviar el nom del grup. Òbviament ni ens ho imaginàvem. Estem al·lucinats!

Aquests dies hem estat discutint què fer amb el superàvit que ens esteu confiant i hem arribat a la conclusió que, a banda de gravar el màxim de cançons possibles, volem invertir la resta en un videoclip amb l’ajuda d’un equip que ja està en marxa.

Per això, ara ens fixem un nou objectiu de 3000€, que ens permetria finançar la feina d’aquest gran equip acostumat, com tants altres grans professionals de l’audiovisual, a ser esclaus de l’amiguisme no remunerat. No tenim cap dubte de que serà una feina excel·lent. Moltes gràcies a tots i totes per seguir confiant en nosaltres.

Salut i música!

#04 / 3ª fase aconseguida!

En 13 dies hem aconseguit arribar a la 3ª fase del nostre projecte i Verkami ens ha seleccionat com un dels tres projectes destacats en el seu Newsletter setmanal en anglès! Check it out: http://www.verkami.com/newsletters/211

Estem contentíssims i il·lusionats! Aviat actualitzarem el nostre nou objectiu... però mentrestant podeu seguir fent aportacions o difonent el nostre projecte entre amics i coneguts que puguin estar-hi interessats, que encara queden 27 dies de campanya!

Recordeu que el 13 de febrer tocarem a la Sala Eldorado de Gràcia (Pl. del Sol, 4), a les 22h. Esperem oferir-vos un bon concert per agraïr-vos a tots per la vostra empenta i el vostre suport!

MOLTES GRÀCIES!!!

#03 / Primer objectiu assolit!!!

Hem aconseguit arribar als 1.300€ amb què havíem fixat el primer objectiu en menys d'una setmana! No cabem en nosaltres de l'alegria!!! Ja podem dir que Cassandra's Sons & The Bastards Band tindrà el seu primer EP. Moltes gràcies als 44 mecenes que ho heu fet possible!

Així de contents estàvem aquesta tarda a l'assaig (menys el nostre 'serious man', clar, que ja va gastar el somriure en l'anterior fotografia)! GRÀCIES!!!

#02 / Ja hem superat els 1.000€!

Encara no ens ho creiem, però en només un cap de setmana de campanya ja hem aconseguit 1.030€! Gràcies a vosaltres, ens queda ja molt poquet per a que el projecte es pugui convertir en realitat, tot i que l'objectiu final són els 2.000€. FELIÇOS!

Fins i tot heu aconseguit posar content a en Willy, the serious man!!

#01 / Primer dia i 335€!

En menys de 8 hores hem aconseguit 335€! Estem molt contents i il·lusionats, i sobretot plens de gratitud cap aquests primers mecenes! Però encara ens queda un llarg camí per arribar a la suma mínima de 1.300€ i encara més llarg per arribar a l'objectiu de 2.000€. Confiem en que segueixin apareixent mecenes que ens recolzin en aquest periple.

MOLTES GRÀCIES!!!!

Aixì de contents ens hem quedat!
