The Walls Announce :fund:it Campaign

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, News with tags , , , , , , on January 30, 2012 by Tickets There

Perhaps a slight touch of Déjà vu  this morning for our readers, but The Walls have announced details of their Stop The Lights album :fund:it campaign. Steve and Joe have set themselves 27 days to raise €10,000 to help complete the mastering, artwork and manufacturing of the record which they hope to release in early March this year. There’s a fair whack of rewards available to fans depending on the size of their contribution including signed copies of the album, t-shirts, downloads, bonus releases, the chance to attend a song writing workshop with Joe and Steve Wall and even a once in a life time opportunity to have The Walls perform a show in your house. Please find the details below,

Our new album “Stop the lights” is almost finished and due to be released in early March 2012. It includes last summers radio hit Bird in a Cage and the just-released single Stop the Lights. This will be our third album (not including the Stunning albums). We’re really excited about it and feel the songs are as strong as anything we’ve released in the past.

Fund it is an ideal way for our fans to be part of the process and contribute whatever they feel is appropriate in a secure way…and you get handsomely rewarded for doing so . You can donate using a debit or credit card and its only debited if we reach the target.

We’ve worked with some great people in the making of this album, including Rob Kirwan who’s worked with U2 and recorded PJ Harvey’s recent Mercury Award winning album. Stop the Lights is being mastered by Geoff Pesche in Abbey Road, London. The artwork looks amazing and is being done by Conor & David, one of Ireland’s best graphic design team.

To pay for the mastering, artwork, manufacturing etc. we’d like to raise some money so we’re starting a Fund it campaign. We’ve set the target at €10,000 but we really hope to raise more as the overall costs far exceed that amount. We really appreciate you coming on board! Joe & Steve

House Of Dolls Announce :fund:it Campaign For Debut Album

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, News with tags , , , , on January 29, 2012 by Tickets There

Dublin band House Of Dolls have announced a :fund:it campaign to help get their début album, Welcome To The Department Of Nuclear Medicine, completed, pressed and distributed by it’s current launch date, February 17th. The band are looking to raise €2,000 and have already amassed €1,395.00 in the few days since the campaign was launched. Anyone’s that’s heard their début single ‘Gimmie Some Glory will know these guys are worth every penny you can invest. Their official speal can be found below along with a breakdown of the rewards available to those who assist.

Since our inception we have been making ears bleed and having a good time doing so. In that time we have evolved, exploring, absorbing and devouring everything weird, wonderful and brain-blistering going on around us. But now it is time for us to put out on record the culmination of 3 years of beautiful chaos. We are on the home
straight….but we need to get by with a little help from our friends on this one.

So, here’s the deal. Over the past 4 months we have been busy recording our 11-track début album “Welcome To The Department Of Nuclear Medicine” with Liam Mulvaney in Bow Lane Studios. This album is a labour of love. This album is a snarling beast. This album has bled us dry. This is the spawn of House Of Dolls. One last push and it’s unleashed….

With time restrictions we need help to cover the cost of the album mixing, mastering and duplication fees. For the kind spirited souls who want to play a part in making this happen we are offering the rewards outlined to your left. These can be posted out to participants or collected from us at our launch gig in the Workmans Club, Dublin, on the 17th of February
