Help Fund Auditory Armory's New EP!

$972 of $2,600 goal

Raised by 25 people in 22 months

Hello friends!

We need help funding our new EP!  The new EP is entitled "Dark Matter" and will have 7 tracks total -- 5 new original songs and 2 special cover tunes.  We have finished the tracking process, thanks both to Alex Spradling and Alpaca Ranch Recording and David Medairos and 8Arms Audio.  

Our next steps are to mix and master the album, commission artwork for the album, and release the CD for digital and physical distribution.  We would also like to film at least 2 music videos for this album as well.  
We are super honored and excited to have the new EP mixed and mastered by engineer Rob Caldwell, who has worked on some amazing heavy metal projects and with bands such as Mindscar, Six Feet Under, and Cannibal Corpse.  You can check out some of his catalog here:

We really need your help to make all of this a reality!  We have a variety of rewards in store for you for your generous contribution.  Thank you all so much for anything you can contribute -- the sooner we receive the funding, the sooner we can share this new music with you!

Thank you so much and much love,

Auditory Armory

Good afternoon friends!

Just wanted to update you on our campaign. Thanks to you, we have started the mixing phase of our newest EP "Dark Matter." We are super excited and honored to be working with Rob Caldwell, who has engineered and mixed bands such as Iron Reagan, Goatwhore, Devil Gone Public, Cannibal Corpse, and our very good friends in Mindscar -- to name a few.

We will begin filming video for one (maybe even two!) tracks at the end of January with our dear friend Eric McGrath. Stay tuned for more details on that, because we might recruit some of our friends to be in the video(s) ;-)

We still need your help to reach our ultimate goal of $2,600 which will help with album distribution (printing, online, artwork) so if you are feeling in the spirit of giving this season, we would truly appreciate it! In return, we have rewards for your contribution. Your gift in any amount will help us release this EP and get this project out globally.

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Much love,
Auditory Armory

Hey there! We are 28 days into the campaign and we've made some progress toward our goal. Thank you to all who have donated so far! We have lowered the campaign goal because we really need to meet the minimum goal of $2600 to complete mixing/mastering and distribution of the album as soon as possible. Thank you guys so much for sharing our GoFundMe page. We know money is tight, but even a $5 or $10 contribution can go a long way. We have over 5,000 fans on Facebook; I alone have over 2,000 FB friends! Think if just even a quarter of that amount donated $5 each - we would already reach our goal! We have funded all the tracking of this album ourselves and really need your help completing the process so that we can get this new music out there! Don't forget, there are rewards for every contribution you make! Thank you so much for your support of us and independent musicians!!!

Much love,

Thank you to Danny Templegod for his generous contribution to our campaign today and to everyone who has donated so far! We have a variety of pretty cool rewards for those who contribute. We are just $940 short of our Nov.11 mini-goal of $1500 so we can start the mixing/mastering process. Any amount helps and we love and thank you guys for supporting us and helping to release this new music out into the world. Stay tuned for more updates and news! <3. With your help, it will be possible! ;)

Welcome to our GoFundMe campaign!

Thank you all so much for following our music and for your continued support. Please watch the video we made for this campaign as it explains the rewards we have to offer for your generous contributions (plus, we think it's pretty funny =] ).
The video is attached but the link just in case is:

I'd like to also note that you are free to donate as many times to this campaign as you like (you're the best!) and also that you are not obligated to take the rewards that come with each contribution level if you so choose (Fine! Be that way!).
You can also choose to donate any amount, so if you feel like being really unique, you can donate $27, lol.

*Reward levels that include private lessons, admission into our CD release show, and dinner with the band do not include travel accommodations. (Meaning, if you live in Chicago and reallly want to come to our CD release show, you can totally come but we just can't pay for your plane ticket, lol).

Please share with your friends -- we couldn't do this without all of your support and generosity!!!

As we reach each funding goal for this campaign, we will update this page so you can keep track of our progress.

While I was watching my friends band set up on the main stage at kinkfest I heard y'all performing and got drawn over to the other stage. I definitely became a fan. Good luck! :)
