MADROST Team Up With SOFA KING VINYL For Record Release Project

Sofa King Vinyl have announced that they have teamed up with Southern California’s Madrost (pronounced “muh-drawst”) for their first vinyl release project as part of the label’s launch. What this means is Sofa King Vinyl will be launching a pre-order campaign with exclusive bundles via Kickstarter. If the goal is met, Sofa King Vinyl will press 500 copies of Madrost’s critically-acclaimed album ‘Into The Aquatic Sector’ on 140 gram audiophile quality vinyl. If Sofa King Vinyl doesn’t hit the goal then nobody pays a dime and the records don’t get pressed while they basically kick rocks.

Regarding questions about the use of Kickstarter to sell records, the label states the following:

Since we are literally starting from nothing, we need to make sure we at least break even on the first few records we put out. Crowdfunding by pre-order is the perfect way to make sure we sell enough records and verify there is enough demand for a specific vinyl release. We don’t want to go seeking investors and having to take on “shareholders” because that just complicates things and gives other people a reason to think they can tell us what to do. We are lucky enough to be able to work with artists who understand our position and are excited to be a part of our label launch; and we are just as excited to work with them.
