And it's out! ...and new music video!
Hey there friends,
How are you doing? We hope really, really well.
We’re really excited to let you know that of yesterday, our Crowdfunded album, ’The Something in Nothing’ is officially released! We feel so happy knowing it’s going out there into the world, and somewhat like proud parents sending their kids off to school for the first time.
By now, hopefully all CD orders should be with their respective owners. As we’ve contacted those of you who ordered vinyl individually, we still hope to receive them on May 9th, and will endeavour to get them to you as quickly as we possibly can. Thanks again for your patience!
We also released the second single and music video from the album, ’November Leaves’, a dizzying, arty, beautiful 3:58 of creepiness, produced by the wonderful people at LWZ.
Tickets for our release show are flying out, and we’d love for you to join us! They’re available at www.ntry.at/thesomethinginnothing - come join us and let’s party!
’Til then, thanks again for all your support, and we really hope you’re enjoying listening to the record you helped make a reality!

An update: Pressing and Release Party!
We hope you’re all doing really beautifully, and that the longer days and sunshine are making winter now seem like a long, distant memory.
We’re just writing with another quick update on the progress of the record since our crowdfunding campaign ended back in January. You’ll be happy to know that things are going to plan! The album has been at the pressing plants over the last few months, and we heard yesterday that the CD’s are finished and being delivered to us as we speak, the Vinyl LP’s will be a little longer, but finished soon.
After that, we need a little time to get our postage and package and delivering organisation together, but sooner than later your orders will be arriving at your homes! Thanks so much again for your kindness and patience, it’s really appreciated and we’re so excited for you to hear the finished record.
We’d like to remind you to just check that all your address and contact details you entered when funding the album are still accurate, as we’ll be using that information for the delivery process.
Another thing to mention, is that we have a date for our release party! It will be happening at Flex Cafe, Vienna on Friday 11th May, alongside our friends Philiam Shakesbeat (also launching his new EP), and Alpha Romeo. Tickets are available at www.ntry.at/thesomethinginnothing - we’d really love for you to come join us!
In the meantime, we’ll have our new music video and single released in the next few weeks, so we’ll be sure to let you know when that’s done.
Apart from that, thanks again, and we wish you a lovely rest of your week.

An update! Mixes & Masters...
Hello friends, how do you do?
We very much hope 2018 has been kind to you so far, whether or not you’ve been busy and productive, or otherwise wrapped up in some cosy state of hibernation.
We wanted to write you a quick message to update you on the progress of the record you so kindly and generously supported us with. We’re very happy to say that The Something in Nothing is done, finito, complete! A few weeks ago we finished the mixing process, sent it to be mastered, and I’m listening to its final state as we… write, and soon we’ll be sending it to be pressed! We’re incredibly proud and excited for it to finally reach your record players and ears.
In the meantime, we’re busy putting our heads together to make and organise the other goodies we promised you, and will be writing to update you on that progress again soon.
’Til then, take care, and have a lovely week James Choice & The Bad Decisions
Thank you (so much!)
As of 11am on Saturday 6th January, our Crowdfunding campaign drew to a beautiful close, and it’s been quite the journey… With your help, together we’ve reached an unbelievable total of 7,737€ from 140 wonderful backers, surpassing 119% of the goal we set ourselves one month ago. That is AMAZING! THANK YOU! From the bottom of our hearts, from the deepest depths of our creamy centres, we are immensely grateful and will never forget it.
We are now hard at work putting the final touches to the album together before we can send it to be pressed, and will be contacting our backers in the near future about how and when their special rewards will be made available!
Until then, thank you so much again, have a wonderful New Year, and see you soon!

WE MADE IT!
WE MADE IT!!!
At some point today, an unknown generous soul brought us past our Crowdfunding goal of 6500€, meaning that the campaign is officially a success! From the absolute bottom of our hearts, thank you so, so much to every single one of you who’ve helped us on this journey, we’ll never forget it, and truly can’t wait to share the album with you.
HOWEVER! As they say, it ain’t over til it’s over… We still have 3 whole days remaining until the campaign ends at 11am this coming Saturday, so it’s not too late to support the record. Every cent past our original target will help us hugely with our release and music video production costs. So, please keep sharing!
We want to wish you a wonderful New Year, and thanks again friends. James Choice & The Bad Decisions x
The Something in Crowdfunding, an Update
Well, that escalated quickly! We’re now at the halfway point of our Crowdfunding campaign and about to reach 80% of our goal… That is simply incredible. Thank you so much for your contributions so far, we’ve been really overwhelmed by your kindness.
We wanted to update you that even after reaching our original target, your continued support is hugely appreciated. Our original goal of 6500€ will go directly into paying our studio costs, but wouldn’t cover the release, marketing and all important music video bill we face after that. So, we’re aiming high and stretching our goal to 8500€, and so would once again ask for your help in spreading the word to your generous friends and family, or whoever could help us take this campaign to the next level!
Thanks again, friends, and have a wonderful Christmas time Sebastian, Michael, Bernd, Kathrin & Georg

An early thank you present for an amazing start!
We’ve had a truly beautiful and hopeful start to our album Crowdfunding campaign, and we’ve been absolutely overwhelmed by the kindness and positivity we’ve felt from all our friends who’ve backed us so far. We’ve somehow managed to reach over 60% after 4 short days, which is far and beyond anything we could have hoped for. So, thank you SO MUCH for the help so far!
We’ve decided to thank all our backers even more by offering you a present of a free, advance download of the first single from our album, ’Small Talk’. You can get your copy by e-mailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you a download code.
Have a wonderful weekend, and be sure to wrap up warm, let’s do this! Sebastian, Michael, Kathrin, Georg & Bernd x
