Morpheus Rising has launched a 30 day Kickstarter Project to raise funds to complete their long awaited second album.
The as yet untitled release, affectionately known by the Morpheus Rising faithful as “MR2” is scheduled to feature around 10 songs, some of which have already been aired live by the band, and all written by Si Wright and Pete Harwood.
The Kickstarter project will raise funds to complete the mixing, production and mastering and manufacturing of the new CD, and backers are offered a wide choice of items as a reward for getting involved, from pre-ordering the disc in standard form; a deluxe version including their name in the artwork; a prop that the band have used live; a part in the next video; guitar tuition with the band’s axemen… and more.
Guitarist Pete Harwood explains, “Kickstarter allows fans to back the project and pledge money towards the projects target figure. If enough people support us and we reach the target in the 30 days, we can push on and get this album finished and out to the fans in a matter of months. An album costs a lot of money to create and manufacture, so we really need the fans get involved and be part of it with us to make it a reality.”
The band are aiming for an official release early in 2014, with the intention that backers of the Kickstarter project would receive their copies of the album and any other rewards a month earlier, in time for Christmas.
