Ever wonder what it's like?

On the inside, behind the scenes, what does it take to shoot for success in the music world? From the artistic and visionary, to the harsh realities of running a business; this blog is about the path of Ghost of Gloria. This is not where we'll be promoting shows or sending blasts to our fan base. This is about the real deal. The good, the bad, and the funny.

Our new music is out!  What a relief for all of us.  Between getting the music together, setting up the distribution and that Kickstarter campaign, we've kept really busy over the past two weeks!  We want to say a heartfelt THANKS to everyone who supported our campaign on Kickstarter.com!  It really came down to the last 24 hours but we met and exceeded our goal.  It means the world to us that so many people truly want to see our band succeed.

Now we find ourselves in a new position.  We actually have the funds to do some of the things that we always talked about doing.  We can follow through with our goal of three new releases this year.  We can pursue publicity outlets that were closed to us before.  We're planning on a whole new line of merchandise too!  Wooohoooo!  We're a REAL band!!!

Of course, the moment we reached our goals and released the EP, it meant we had a whole new to-do list.  We're working now to fulfill every single reward that people signed up for on the Kickstarter site.  That means signing a whole lot of photos, planning a BBQ that will have around 60 people in attendance, planning some open rehearsals, a golf outing, a lesson or two and a private party!  I'm tired just typing that stuff.  Not to mention how stressful it was to make sure we sent the EP out to our supporters on the day of its release.  Inevitably, there were a few quirks and we're trying to make sure that absolutely everyone who pre-paid for the EP has received it.  We're NOT ok with screwing anyone over!
Side note: if you supported our Kickstarter campaign and you haven't gotten the "Trial + Virtue, Volume One" link in your email box yet, PLEASE email the band at ghostofgloria (at) gmail.com.  Don't wait another minute!

Well, for the rest of the world, GO BUY THE NEW MUSIC!  Its on iTunes, CDBaby, Amazon mp3... everywhere!  Not trying to sound like an advertisement, but hey, it is what it is.

Check back again soon!
