The York metallers have left their label and management, and are now doing everything themselves.
Glamour Of The Kill have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their forthcoming 'After Hours' EP.
The York four-piece have parted ways with their label and management, and their crowd-funding campaign marks the beginnings of them doing everything for themselves themselves. Explaining their plans, the band have posted the following message:
"We are taking back control! Get involved in the next chapter of GOTK by becoming part of our After Hours campaign.
Glamour of the Kill - After Hours EP
Welcome to the next chapter for Glamour of the Kill...
After being dictated to by record labels and people who sit in an office, wearing a suit so far in our careers, we thought it was about time we take back control. This allows us to create something on our terms, with only you, the fans, to answer to.
After touring the UK, Europe, Russia, and the US over the last 6 months, the last month and a half has been spent tirelessly writing a new EP, which will be released before the end of this year. The new EP titled "After Hours" will be our chance to show elements of GOTK that have not been seen before, while maintaining the fundamental principles of what makes us what we are. Something that has tested our writing ability, our musicianship, and at times our sanity. It's now time to unleash this animal from its cage.
Recording and releasing something without the help of any record label or outside influence however, comes at a price. The finished product of even an EP costs thousands to get to a stage where you're holding that physical copy in your hands. This is where you guys come in. We're asking you to get involved, and become a part of the next chapter in our careers and invest in what we promise will be the next level of GOTK. This will help pay for recording, mixing, mastering, artwork and every other cost that goes hand in hand with a release.
We have some great packages for you, ranging from the purchase of a physical version of 'After Hours'. and getting your name printed in the artwork of every copy; to signed guitars and an exclusive acoustic performance from the band in YOUR front room at home!
We will be posting updates regularly on the developments of the whole process and giving you insights into the songs, artwork and track listing. We would like to thank everyone in advance for getting involved and spreading the word.
Davey, Chris, Mike, Ben. x "
