Today, we begin the process of unveiling our most adventurous album launch yet for the upcoming release of my 4th record, "13 Satellites" - coming October 25, 2011.
We have a very bold schedule planned for the fall, including a CD release party in Los Angeles, shows in Austin and Nashville and throughout the South West (TBA), 4 music videos in development, various photo shoots in the works (including one for the front cover this weekend), and most importantly - for the first time in my career - the hiring of a PR firm to handle all local and national press for the record, all of which leading up to the release of my most playful and ambitious record to date.
But in order to achieve all the above, and push this record harder than I've ever pushed an album release, I'm humbly and graciously asking for your help.
We've launched a fundraising website at IndieGoGo, and have put together some incentives and donation packages we think are fun and hopefully enticing enough to be worth of your well earned dollar!
In addition to your MUCH appreciated donation, we'd truly appreciate you spreading the word - sharing our efforts and campaign via Facebook / Twitter / email etc. The further we can cast this net, the better this fundraiser and by extension this record will fare.
There's also a considerable amount of additional information on "13 Satellites" at the IndieGoGo site, including an EPK and samples of songs from the record. You can also stream the first single, "SATELLITE", in full NOW right here at www.brandonschott.com
There will be quite a bit of news and many more exciting announcements to come in the next few weeks as we unveil the record further, so stay tuned to this site for all the updates.
I truly believe that this is the best record of my career - thank you all SO much for being a part of it's past, present and future.
All my love to you!! See you soon...
