Set Your Goals vocalist Matt Wilson is starting a record label, dubbed Calaveras Records, and is seeking assistance from fans via Kickstarter. The label’s first release will be a special 10th anniversary pressing of Set Your Goals’ “Reset” demo on 10″ vinyl.
My name is Matt Wilson, and I sing for a band called Set Your Goals. A couple years ago, we regained the pressing rights to our demo recording from Eulogy Recordings, who had maintained exclusive pressing rights for 7 years, beginning when we signed with them back in 2005. I saw this as an opportunity to put money back into the band instead of another label’s pockets.I’ve always wanted to start a record label, and this was the little “push” I needed to get me going. 2014 marks the 10 year anniversary of our demo’s release and our band’s career. As a vinyl enthusiast, I thought it only natural to make some really cool vinyl for the occasion, and try my best to get it out in time for Record Store Day 2014. In order to do this, there are some very strict deadlines I must meet (pressing vinyl takes a long time!), which is why this Kickstarter project is only about 2 weeks long.The only problem is, even by maxing out all of my credit cards, I still need help to pay for everything up front. Your pledges will not only help fund this release, but they will help the band out, as I am putting all proceeds from this first release back into Set Your Goals. This is a chance for you to be a part of our label’s first release, support the band, and have a very special and unique piece of vinyl to show for it.
