We made the choice of independence to keep total artistic freedom, preferring an alternative approach, out of time, codes and commercial pressures. Which means self-production (we finance ourselves this record) and tight economy. The album is recorded and mixed, it remains to be manufactured and promoted. Purpose of our campaign : collect 6000 € for pressing the CDs and vinyls, printing posters and stickers, promoting the album and making a video. Our crowdfunding campaign started on the 1st of October at 6pm on KissKissBankBank and will run until the 15th of November.
