Hello! We are the Metal band A Piece Of The Action from Los Angeles, CA. We have been together for a little over 2 years now and have come such a long way since our first show. The love we have for the music we create goes hand in hand with the love we have for our families and friends. To be able to jump on stage and share our souls with you is a phenomenal sensation and we cant emphasize enough how much we love doing it.
Have you ever reached a point in your life where you are so close to accomplishing your goal whether it be buying a new car, a new house, or even finishing school, yet you can't quite get there because you don't have the funds to achieve this goal? Then you know exactly how it feels to be in our shoes right now. Since the start of APOTA, we continue to live the D.I.Y. lifestyle solely because we do not have the support of a record label to back us up. We can honestly say that we appreciate every single time someone steps out of their way to help us with anything. At this point in our musical lives, we have ran out of money to complete our second EP for ours fans and are humbly asking you to step up and support us. We need to raise enough money to go back into the studio, record the EP and send it out to the printers to have it packaged all nice like for all of you. Words alone cannot express how much your help means to us and how much it will help us reach a new level in our musical careers.
Reaching this goal will not only be a great accomplishment, but will be a life changing event for all of us in APOTA. It will open doors for us that we have never thought imaginable, one of them being making a ton of new friendships through this event. Think about how great it felt to obtain something you fought so hard for. That is exactly what we are doing now. We are fighting with every oucne of strength to get complete this new EP not just for us, but for every single one of you. With your help, there is no doubt that we can get to the finish line and bring life to our greatest creation as a band.
What We Need & What You Get
With our budgeted goal of $1,700, we will be able to pay for:
* studio time at the up-and-coming quality studio we have found
* cd manufacturing
* producer/engineer fees
* mixing and mastering of the ep
* custom rewards you'll be recieving for your donations
* cd distribution fees to many media outlets
Any and all donations that exceed our goal will go towards other band related necessities such as our trailer fund, marketing fund and our music video fund. Just to name a few. There are many more financially related things we need as a band, but for right now, we are focused on what matters most... OUR MUSIC.
NOW COMES THE GOOD STUFF:
We've thought about these rewards pretty thoroughly to figure out what would be something awesome for you to recieve for your donations. We have rewards such as custom APOTA backer only t-shirts, custom posters, autographed equipment, and many other nifty prizes. You can even have us come to your house and make you dinner!!! Other rewards include a personalized tour of our beloved downtown Los Angeles with us in our tour van followed by dinner and a game of Lazer Tag at an awesome arena. Now if you make the ultimate donation, you will be hanging with us at Disneyland ALL DAY LONG!!! There are plenty of other unique and awesome rewards you can recieve, so make sure to give them a look over and see which one catches your eyes!
If we do not reach our goal, any and all donations made will still go towards the completion of our EP, although it will take A LOT longer for us to complete, which in turn will make our fans wait just that much longer. And the is something we do not wish to do. So why wait! We want to complete this thing as soon as possible so we can get our new music in your ears and in your hearts. With the help of everyone, we will have no problem reaching our goal, getting you some awesome customized APOTA rewards and make a lot of new friends along the way.
Over the past 2 years we've been writing, re-writing, demo-ing, re-writing, and so on. Throughout this process, we have gone through so many ups and downs and it has been an uphill battle to say the least. After the dust settled, we are the ones still standing. We know with your help and financial support, this goal will be reached in no time.
This campaign is so important to us. We really need as much help as we can get so that all the hours, days and months are done justice. All the late nights and determination to make something of this band have brought us to this point in our lives. We have been touring the states since day one, have gotten on many Metal radio stations, been featured in many online sites, and have met so many great people along the way. We have no plans on stopping this train and we want you to be a part of this ride.
