We put a lot of work, time, and money into this, and it may be a very long time(if ever) until we see any profit. We enjoy making music, which is why we keep pressing on, and we hope that you enjoy it as much as we do. There’s no better way to say “keep on doing what you’re doing” than to help fund the product of our blood, sweat, and tears! Here are some ways you can help:

 

1. Preorder Merch
Withered Away, along with some limited time offers, is now available for preorder on our online store. We have packages that include T-shirts, stickers, posters, music videos, and some real crazy bonus material, including a recording of our very first song!

2. Book Us!
This is what we’re all about! Whether you’re a booking agent, church leader, or just a die-hard fan: If you know of anywhere that we can transform into a sick rock show, e-mail us!

Please use our contact form for any booking inquiries.

P.S. Don’t be afraid to be creative, we’ve played coffee houses, churches, bars, back yards, front yards, kid’s clubs, garages, colleges, youth groups, stages, floors, and decks. You name it!

3. Donate
Although it is possible to bring a full metal band onto the New York City streets, open a guitar case, and set up a cardboard box reading “donayshunz”, we find PayPal to be easier. Click on the “donate” button below if you’re interested!




What will we do with the money?
We think that it’s important for our fans to know exactly what our plans are for our album fundraiser. While I truly wish that we could say we’re donating all profits to a trustworthy charity, it’s become very clear to me that we need to take care of ourselves before having the ability to meet the needs of others. Every penny will be going into the album, we will not keep anything for ourselves. We have three separate goals, in order of priority:

1. Produce the album
2. Start our Merch store
3. Stand out from other bands

We need $550 to actually print out the album and give it to everyone that preorders. This is the absolute minimum needed for this to work.

That being said, here is a list of items we are planning on purchasing according to how much we can raise for the album, these are all estimates based on previous purchases.

Fundraiser Goals - Part 1
Total Needed Item Individual Item Cost
$0 unveiling EP and leftover merch -
$250 100 Withered Away album jackets $250
$500 Limited edition Withered Shirt $250
$550 Bonus discs $50

This is technically enough for our album, but if we actually want to make even a small dent of an impact, we have to push on further. This next section is aimed toward making profit. It won’t start out as a large profit, but we hope it’ll be enough of a steady income to keep us a band. (It’s becoming a struggle to stay a band without a strong merch table)

Fundraiser Goals - Part 2
Total Needed Item Individual Item Cost
$750 iTunes/Amazon/etc. $200
$1000 t-shirts and other merch $250
$1500 Improve headline show(Lights/etc.) $500
$1750 more t-shirts and other merch $250
$2500 1000 Withered Away CD's in jewel cases(instead of 100 jackets) $750

This is enough to make a small impact, have our merch store running strong(finally bringing us a small income, so that we don’t have to keep pouring as much money into the band), and slightly improve our live performance. If we want to stand out from the crazy amount of the other very talented local bands on the east coast, we have to do something BIG. Which we believe is where this next section would bring us.
