Pre-Order Crush: The Sun Lee Sunbeam’s Final EP

July 16, 2010

Good friends The Sun Lee Sunbeam announced recently that they would be calling it quits after their show at the Pill in September (read it here). While this news does make us sad, there is a silver lining – they plan to record and release the material that’s been written since their last album came out in October ’09.

Some bands have taken to services like Kickstarter recently as a source for funding projects, but the ‘Beam kids decided to do it on their own and have set up a page through their blog that outlines their plan for a final EP. Similar to other funding sites, there are rewards for donations at varying levels, but one major difference is that since there is no middle man, 100% of the money donated will go to the band for recording and production.

Just a $5 donation will get you a digital copy of the EP, and the sky is the limit from there. Want dinner with the entire band? How about a special dance at the final show with the band member of your choice (I’m looking at you, Jeff Clarke)? Maybe you’d like a one-of-a-kind song written for you by Jessica Sun Lee? All of these things are possible. Most importantly though, whatever you donate will help a great band send one final group of songs into the world, which we can all agree is much better than just abandoning them.

Take a look at their blog here for all the info.
