This is Dany, Pau, and Ale from THE WARNING. We are super excited that we completed writing music and lyrics of all the songs for our first full album. We have been working very hard on them every day since last December, and we have put our heart and soul into them and we think you guys are going to be proud of them. Last week we started recording drums for the album with the help of some of our musician friends who have loaned us the gear and the place to do it, and of course with the support of our parents. We are so happy with the progress, of course with ups and downs with sweat, blisters, eye bags and even sacrificing school hours, yet feeling proud of our work after spending long hours in the studio.
To take the next step on recording an independent LP (because we decided to not sign with any label) we need your help and support. We decided to go independent because we believe in and love what we do and we wouldn't settle for what some labels thought would sell more, like radio friendly time songs or changing lyrics, changing our image to a tougher one (all dress in black with painted hair), or even making our songs more commercial and danceable. So, we had some offers (and we are grateful for them, we feel blessed) but we are who we are and we do what we do, and that is what we want to transmit with our music, even if it's not considered a good business for the labels. We want to stay true to ourselves and respect what we do, not selling ourselves to that.
Thanks to your generosity we got to study last summer at the Berklee College of Music. We learned a lot, we had a wonderful time and it was the opportunity of a lifetime. Now we ask once again for your support. We need your help to finish this album because it costs a lot doing it independently and we don’t want to settle for a low quality recording. We want to do a great album, well produced and an album that sounds amazing, that is why we are reaching again for your help so we can make this a reality.
Our dear friend Nick Warring from Austin, TX is offering his free time (he is a great Fireman) to help us with this campaign so we can concentrate in doing a great album for all of you. We are grateful to having him on board making sure you get the latest updates on how things are going with us at the studio.
Thanks for all your support and God bless you all.
Dany, Pau, and Ale I'm very happy to help. Everyone, my name is Nick Warring. Like you I'm a fan of the Warning Band, and I'm a friend of the Villarreal family. I wanted to help this fundraising effort because of how exceptional these girls are. If you're here reading this you've undoubtedly been entertained by the great talents of Dany, Pau, and Ale either by a video or live performance which they do expertly and very powerfully. Equally as impressive to me is just how hard these girls work, and how they along with their parents are such genuinely good people. With the work ethic and character they possess in addition to their talents they deserve a chance to record their first album. I'm very proud of them for staying true to themselves and recording independently. For such young girls they have a very strong sense of who they are and what they want their music to be. The only way to maintain their creative freedom was to record independently. That comes at a high price though as studio time, producer time, and other production and post production costs are great. The Villarreal family is sacrificing greatly to try to accomplish this but it is very difficult. So, let's help the Warning Band make their first album the way it should be made, by them!
The girls and the family are so busy I'll be helping them by posting occasional updates here to keep you all up to date on the album's progress. We should also get to see some photos and hopefully short videos of the girls at work. I'm looking forward to the progress and to a great album!
