patrons

Blackletter is an apocalyptic rock band from the Providence area who as young children dreamed of being vampires, David Bowie and even Lovecraft's musical accompaniment.

A big THANK YOU to our amazingly supportive fans: Your energy and support brought us here to Patreon! Our last show was so successful that we want to keep the momentum going. We have a lot of creative energy and ideas for our new press kit video, single on vinyl and animation video. Be part of the creative process with us as we continue on the journey to create rock music for the apocalypse! Here are our goals with your help, we hope to achieve

$2,000, we'll press our new single on vinyl!
$3,500 we'll make our music video!
$9,000 we can record the full album!
$12,000, we can press the full album on vinyl!

About the band:

Blackletter's first EP, “Station 15” was released in the winter of 2015 to local praise: "Hell Hath Fury is intense like a prog-rock version of Metallica’s 'Unforgiven' with a Nine Inch Nails bridge and a piano outré". --Marc Clarkin of Motif Magazine. Blackletter was a 2015 WBRU Rock Hunt finalist and appeared that year on BRU's Home BRU'd. In 2016, they were featured on WHJY, Boston Rock Radio and internationally on German and Australian radio. Blackletter has shared the stage with the Giraffes of Brooklyn and the Ghost Wolves of Austin, TX --- They regularly play The Met, Jimmy's Saloon in Newport, Ralph's Rock Diner in Worcester and Boston venues such as Charlie's Kitchen. Little known fact: Blackletter's lead vocalist was once likened by a bewildered fan to "a duke proclaiming from a mountaintop."
