[Please] Kickstart The Forecast’s New Album

Kickstarter has become a very, very flooded realm of talented people asking for money. We’re sure there are many worthy accounts with great pitch videos, but consider this post our plead that your cash goes to kickstart The Forecast’s next album.

Hailing from Illinois and somehow surviving a deal with Victory Records without imploding, The Forecast have again and again delivered meaningful music to the masses. Now, the group is hoping to raise $8000 by mid-November to record their next release and we hope you’ll find it in your heart (and pocket) to help.

You can view a message and video from the band about this project after the jump. As with any Kickstarter, there’s a ton of cool swag/gifts available depending on the size of your contribution.


Hi! We’re The Forecast! We are a smart, funny, hard-working, and energetic group of honest 20-somethings from Peoria, Illinois. Since 2001, we have taken great pride in releasing 3 full-length albums and 4 EP’s and doing countless tours developing and strengthening a wonderful connection to our fans and listeners.

Though we have been rather quiet as of late, behind the scenes we have been writing and demoing a ton of songs and planning for our 4th LP. Usually in the past we have had a label to help us bring the tunes to tangible fruition. This time we are going it sans-label and need YOUR help. Every dollar you donate to our little project will be 100% put towards the cost of making this album.

But don’t feel like you’re going to only be getting a brand new album out of the deal. Check out the sweet donation-prize packages we have personally put together for you.

So there you have it! We hope you feel as excited and passionate about this as we do, and plan to make our finest album yet, for YOU and all thanks to YOU!!
