Premier EP pour Duckhunters
Premier EP pour Duckhunters
Last year we have recorded on our own a 3 songs demo untitled "Drop Dead". This first shot was a successful experiment to express the spirit of Duckhunters.
Today we want to strike again with a more audacious project. We plan to record an EP in a professional studio in order to exploit all of our potential. This EP will be available in CD.
This EP (35 min) represents a dramatic step in the life of the band. It's the sum of the work started just after the release of our demo and acting a musical turn as well as a more pronounced identity.
Here: our demo released in Aug 2014. http://duckhunters.bandcamp.com/
Indeed, since few months, Duckhunters is morphing and mutating from an artistic point of view. After eighteen months of composition and scenic improvements we have found a good balance between Man-new (Singer), Guy-home (Guitar), Easy-door (Bass) and Alone (Drum) through a pachydermic stoner, dense and cutting edge. After several match-tests with our public we feel it's time to record.
Here there is a live of "Thunderdome" (from the demo) recorded at l'espace Léo Ferré, December the 6th 2014.
The realization of this EP is not an idea in the air. This project is a way to reach a frontier, to make a portrait of what the band "Duckhunters" means for us and to share it with our public. Finally, this record is a fundamental prerequisite to growth up and increase our credibility in the stoner family.
Proud of our work, we truly think we have reach a step in our development. This is why we are reloading the shotgun, ready to spit fire with your truth and your help!
To be sure to obtain a hi-fi record we have decided to collaborate with a professional studio. The only way to get a sound near of stages.
Confidently we have entrusted our souls and our guts to Y production, a Britton Studio from Plougastel-Daoulas lead by Nuts. In the Duckhunters philosophy, it's always an obligation to play with the local talents.
Nuts is a long time sound-master with a lot of local collaborations on his table hunting (Valse noot, Silent down, Stangala, Firefrost).

His skills and his philosophy of the mix allow him to work with several different styles to obtain a sound expected by the most intransigent musicians. It's not a coincidence if we choose him...
Desert themes, life in the post apocalyptic world are characterizing the atmosphere of Duckhunters through the text of Man-new and our riffs. For this new disk, we have chosen to work with a graphical artist. Regarding his human and technical skills, Jo Riou was The Man of the situation.

In few months Jo was contacted by several big names of the stoner to realize artworks, notably for famous festivals e.g. Freak Valley, Desert Fest, Blizzard Mountain's Fest.
Waar dient de collecte voor
BUDGET Here we are, the hard part, about the "M" word.
In a concern of clarity, we will accurately detail all the financials aspects. However, to respect the work of all collaborators, you may understand we can't give you all the information. Nevertheless, our budget is a minimal budget, we don't want to artificially pull up the final amount. We want to work at a local scale, we know where we belong.
Total Budget: 3000 Euros
Here, the mains costs (by decreasing order):
- Studio: recording, mix, mastering
- Pressing of the CD (500 copies)
- KISSKISSBANKBANK compensation (poster, EP, demo, badges, Tshirt)
- Postal fees
- KISSKISSBANKBANK fees (5% of the collected funds)
Here, our other sources of funding:
- Drop Dead Records (Our organization which funds a big part of the project, with the entries of the concerts or the cd sales).
- Personal contributions (we have all sold one of our organs for that)
- Helps from other sources (grants)
- Crowfunding (that's your part!)
Now you know all our secrets.
It's with a big pleasure but also with a great excitation we ask you your help to collect the amount of 800 Euros. This crowfunding represents 25% average of the total budget. We really need you to succeed. But a question remains: What will happen, if, thanks to your generosity, the total amount exceeds 800 Euros? We will be able to record a supplementary song and, thereof, make a LP instead an EP. This way, our development would increase more rapidly. Many ideas are following to reinforce our project (more copies, or why not a vinyl record!).
We hope we have succeed to convince you of our sincerity and that we give you the wish to take the opportunity to participate at this adventure.
With all our love,
Man-new, Guy-Home, Easy-Door and Alone for Duckhunters
