As I am writing this, I am sitting in my air conditioned rehearsal studio which also happens to be the coolest place in LA on this hot, HOT Wed afternoon in October. Cool not only in temperature, but also in hipness because in the studio down the hall from me The Black Rebel Motorcycle Club are recording their new album. The actual guys are tracking right now and I can tell you that the track I am listening to is gorgeous. Sometimes, when I am not suffering from low blood sugar as a result of not eating regular meals, I really love this musician life of mine.
I’ve been on self induced lockdown in my studio filming pick up shots and editing together a promotional video for the new Brian Travis Band CD, The Coyote & The Crow. The video has taken 3 days of constant editing, but it is finished and I would like to share it with you all. It is basically a commercial to generate pre-order sales in an effort to stockpile a promotional budget to help us shoot music videos, hire publicists, and launch a marketing campaign to increase the awareness of this album.I’ll post pre-order info below the vid -but first- without further adieu, here is the video:
The Brian Travis Band are currently offering a limited amount of advance special edition CD of the forthcoming BTB release, “”The Coyote & The Crow” to friends and fans who would like to pre-order the disk.
All pre-orders will be signed by the entire band and will be shipped 2 weeks before the official release date, which should be sometime between the end of October and Christmas 2012.
You can pre-order your special edition copy of the new album via paypal by making a payment of $15 (includes shipping) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do not have a Paypal account you can send a check made out to Brian Travis to: 674 Cypress St Newbury Park, CA 91320
If you make a pre-order either by snail mail or via paypal, be sure to include your current address where you would like us to send the CD when it is all finished.
If you can, spreading the word about our upcoming release in a grassroots way is very important. There is nothing more powerful a marketing tool than word of mouth. If you are so inclined we would be very thankful if you re-post the video link onto your FB wall, your twitter, tumbler, wordpress or social network of your choice. If you like, say something encouraging and positive about our music and upcoming CD in your own words too! That would do a lot to get the word out about this new release!
Keep the faith
