Skyharbor have successfully completed their crowd-funding campaign in a record breaking time with 125 days still remaining! What started out as a simple bedroom studio project, has quickly evolved into one of India’s hottest metal prospects, with huge admiration coming in from some of the biggest names in metal worldwide.
SKYHARBOR released their debut album ‘Blinding White Noise : Illusion & Chaos’ on April 23rd, 2012 worldwide via Basick Records to glowing praise from fans and press alike. The band followed up the launch with an epic live performance in support of LAMB OF GOD on their 2012 world tour, where they were joined by vocalist Dan Tompkins and played to nearly 10,000 people. SKYHARBOR made their debut European appearance with an exclusive show at EUROBLAST Festival in Germany alongside AFTER THE BURIAL, SCAR SYMMETRY, TESSERACT and many more renowned modern progressive bands. The band capped off a highly successful year with two headlining performances in India in December, before taking time off to focus on their second album.
They’re in the process of recording a new album working with the legendary Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus, The Butterfly Effect) who will be mixing the album making the album sound as good as it possibly could be. The band said ” We’re incredibly proud of what we’re working on and want to make the best possible product we can put out. This includes the production, presentation, packaging, videos, artwork, and all of the things which greatly depend not on our own creative prowess but unfortunately on that troublesome thing called money”, and the crowd-funding campaign was launched. It received a great response from their fans from all across the world, and with over 800 pledgers to the campaign it has come to a successful completion!
What did Pledgers get out of crowd-funding?
Pledgers get access to weekly interviews, studio footage, and a behind the scenes look at what’s going into creating this album. You may ask what’s more, they’re offering bonus tracks, handwritten lyric sheets, Skype vocal and guitar lessons, signed CDs and merchandise, online PS3 gaming sessions with Dan, your name in the album credits, and heaps more stuff. But perhaps the most fun of all, are the really special rewards for really special Pledgers – They are willing to do guest vocal and guitar spots for your band/project, and will produce and mix your band’s song, and also will record a cover song of your choosing in their style, and the very best of all – they’ll write and record an exclusive song dedicated and personalised just for you! 🙂 Each Pledger who picks a CD or physical item will also receive a personalised handwritten thank you message.
All exclusives came with a free digital download of the album along with the exclusive bonus songs which won’t appear on the finished album!
The band also put out their First Single off the album called “Evolution” for FREE DOWNLOAD along with the Music Video which was brilliantly done by Jess Cope (Steven Wilson, Devin Townsend, Storm Corrosion).
