ABOUT US

We call ourselves The Shoubiñas Experience and we are a band based in Vigo, Galicia, Spain. We are six crazy music lovers: Rock & Roll, Blues, southern rock, hard rock, metal, and eclecticism.

Our journey began about five years ago when several members of the band got together just to have fun and play covers of groups we admired. Over time and after several lineup changes, we began composing out our songs and defining our personality.

Spurred by the welcoming response from our audience at live events, we took it a step further and, in the summer of 2013, we decided to record a demo live at Metropolis Studios in Vigo, a rehearsal venue, with four of our songs... At the time we could not foresee what the future was holding...

WHY DO WE ASK FOR YOUR HELP?

We recorded this demo just as a keepsake of our adventures and to be able to demo our band at some venues. However, at one point it reached Philip R. Newell (co-founder of Virgin, and producer and sound engineer who worked with Led Zeppelin, Queen, Mike Oldfield, The Who, Pink Floyd, Sex Pistols, Jethro Tull, Duke Ellington, and many others).

We could not believe our ears when heard Newell's response to our work. So one day we finally muster the courage to meet with him and ask him to produce one song. Before we could realize it, we had recorded an entire album with him... What an awesome experience it was!!!

It was a unique opportunity for a band like ours, and now we must deal with the expenses involved in producing our first album in the most professional way. Despite the importance of the project, we're a humble little group and all expenses come out of our own pockets.

That is why we need your generosity. To carry it out in full.

Just to give you a rough estimate: the cost of renting the Metropolis Studios, soundman Fran Alvarez, the fees of the producer, the voices in the chorus of Broken Peach, cinematographer Alberto Lora, and Charlie Casado illustrator, responsible for the album artwork, already exceed 7,000 euros.

If we add the disc mastering and manufacturing of CDs and vinyl discs, T-shirts, badges, stickers, promotion... It will most likely reach 10,000 euros ... And we, as a band, cannot stretch our money that far.

WHAT POINT HAVE WE REACHED SO FAR?

The title of the album will be "A Home Called Metropolis". At the minute it is fully recorded, and we are just awaiting the final mixing and mastering.

Once completed, the first batch will be manufactured and hopefully released sometime in January 2015. However, if our Verkami crowdfunding effort is successful, we may be ready for a full release before the end of 2014.

This is where we need your support.

The main reason why we are launching this crowfunding and asking for your help is because the costs have got out of hand. To be able to achieve an optimum final result, we have spent many ours working in the studio and we have employed resources that were not available to us at the beginning of the project. Even in the face of such a big investment in every sense of the word, we are very proud of our work and want to share it with everyone to enjoy. Even right now we can tell you the result is worth the effort.

From the beginning we knew that embarking on such a project without any planning it could get very difficult, but it is worth every effort... Who would say No to such an opportunity?

**WHY VERKAMI? **

Because it is the most important and respected crowdfunding platform in Spain.

Because friends from other great bands have used it successfully before and have recommended it.

Because to make our dream come true we feel we should resort to all available means.

Because we believe in our record, we're proud of it, and we're honoured to had the opportunity to record with such a giant figure from the music industry.

Because we are excited that all of you can be part of this.

In short, we believe that you will support us and that with your help we will be able to complete our project.

!!!BE SHOUBA MY FRIEND!!!

    Muchísimas gracias!!! Es imposible no sentirse como en casa allí!!

#01 / Se ha terminado aquí?

Hace unos pocos días, a 15 días de finalizar el proyecto, superamos el objetivo. Las palabras de agradecimiento se nos atropellan en la cabeza locas por salir.
Es muy especial, poder hacer realidad un proyecto así contando con el apoyo de tu gente, y con el apoyo de quienes, aún sin conocerte, creen en tu trabajo y quieren oírlo.
Poder conseguir esta campaña ha sido crucial, puesto que a pesar de ser una buena cantidad de dinero, ni siquiera cubre todos los gastos que estamos teniendo. Querer sacar un producto con la mejor calidad posible y sin un apoyo externo es complicado, muy complicado, pero posible, y es en ese punto en el que estamos los Shoubiñas en el de fabricar la mejor carta de presentación que nunca pudimos imaginar...
Pero esto no se ha terminado todavía, nos quedan nueve días y todavía podemos mejorar el resultado... Así que lanzamos una pregunta...
¿LLegaremos a los 6000?
