DORENABy: Dorena Music Sweden
As some of you may know, we have big plans for our future. But for those of you who don´t, here is what you can expect from us in the upcoming year:
• We will start recording our third full-length album on September 17th, which is set for release in early 2013. We will put all of our energy in this album to make it the very best it could possibly be. This includes putting a lot of time and effort in the process of writing songs, preproduction, more hours in the studio, more time spent on mixing and mastering, and more promotion.
• Touring Europe in March/April 2013, which hopefully will be twice as long and more extensive than any previous tour. This time around we will try our hardest to visit all the countries we’ve previously visited, along with new territory for us, such as Greece, France, Spain, Portugal, Netherlands, and the UK.
But to make our plans and dreams come true we have to overcome some financial obstacles. We aren’t really at the point where we can do things concerning Dorena as good and big as we like, and being independent musicians and students at the same time means that we sometimes will have to deny opportunities just because we can’t afford to take them.
This is where you could help us and have an impact on the outcome of all this. You would basically be part of the sound of the album and the length of the tour (which might increase the chance of us coming to your hometown). And as you can see to the right, you can get some sweet stuff by helping us. Any amount is helpful and your support is greatly appreciated!
Oh, and SHIPPING IS INCLUDED in all prizes!

Our project is now fully funded! Our £500 will help finance our 10 days in Nacksving Studios, Gothenburg. As mentioned in the previous update the recording has been postponed, but days are closing in now. October 29th is the date, people! Preproduction is done and the album is turning out to be quite spectacular.

We passed the halfway mark a few days ago!
At the moment we have raised £275 for our project, which means that we have £225 left to go! September 30th is the last day to pledge, so time is running out! Please take a look at our rewards, and see if you find something interesting. Every contribution, big or small, makes big difference in helping us acheiving our goal!
As far as the recording process goes, we have been forced to postpone the album recording from September 16th to October 29th. We are very sorry about this, and to make it up to you, we decided to make our remix of “Let Us Live” available for free download through Soundcloud! Make sure to download before the slots run out!
