We're in the last few hours of the Kickstarter! If you haven't pledged yet, head over to https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1801575573/district-97s-3rd-studio-album ASAP so you don't miss out on the rewards that will not be available after today. Here's a little message from Leslie (featuring an absurd dance) about the end of the campaign:
When we launched the Kickstarter, we never would have guessed we'd have reached our $12,000 goal in less than a week! It's very inspiring to know that people really want to hear new music from us. Just because we've reached the goal doesn't mean the campaign is over, however.
We're so excited to unveil the Kickstarter for our 3rd studio album! It is now live at: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1801575573/district-97s-3rd-studio-album . We only have until September 30th to raise the $12,000 needed to make this album!!
We're delighted to give you a sneak peak at a track from our upcoming 3rd studio album. The song is called Takeover, and was filmed on June 12, 2014 at Martyrs': Please share!
If you'd like to hear this and the rest of our new music on a new album, please consider contributing to our Kickstarter, which launches August 25th!
