Brissos e os Conselheiros de Estrada are launching this crowdfunding campaign with the aim of supporting the release of their debut album "After the end of the world". A project of Blues/Rock sung entirely in Portuguese.
Brissos e os Conselheiros de Estrada is a project that wants to bring back the sound of the 70s, wrapped in current influences; blues, rock and hip-hop hold hands with social criticism, caricature and satire, in a dynamic and funny way, a conceptual framework that addresses divisive issues of our society, fully interpreted in Portuguese.
2015 marked the beginning of the promotion campaign of the new album; "Magenta" was the first single to be presented live throughout the country, preceding the release of the second issue of the same disc, entitled "It's Cold as Hell", which has the special participation of the rapper Raffa Noise.
Recorded and mixed by Pedro Vidal at Vale de Lobos studios, this disc also features the participation of some friends: Ruben El Pavoni (A. J. & the Rock' in Trio); Pedro Vidal (Jorge Palma); Luis Ferreira (Nobody's Bizness); Alexandre Frazão (Ala dos Namorados, Resistência) and Rui Veloso.
BCE are: Paulo Brissos (vocals, guitar); Hugo Ganhão (bass); Gonçalo Santuns (drums); Pedro Soares (guitar and vocals) and Diogo Santos (keyboards).

About the author
Hello, my name is Paul Brissos, I'm a singer, guitarist, songwriter and producer, with a long career and five albums released on Polygram/Universal, Movieplay, Farol and more recently Espacial.
I took this initiative in order to ensure the publication of my latest album, which I intend to present in two different formats: CD and Vinyl.
I had a couple of friends helping me with the creation of this new work: Hugo Ganhão, who has played with Ritchie Campbell and Freddy Locks; Gonçalo Santuns, who currently plays with Rita Guerra; Diogo Santos, who currently plays with Miguel Araujo, and Pedro Soares, who recently accompanied Paula Teixeira, among many others.
The recording were achieved through my own initial investment, but I still need to edit and promote this new album, and for that, I need some support.
I joined this platform, because I believe that here we can find justice and loyalty with the creative ones, who want to realize their projects, and also with the people who wish to help in this aim.
Therefore, I ask the cooperation of everyone, so you can also give voice to my project. You're support and your contribution are welcome, however small it is, believe me, is welcome and precious.
Budget and due dates
I have confidence in Crowdfunding because it has proven its ways, helping many creatives, who like me, have requested support for their projects.
Despite the effort employed in the production of this work, along with the musicians who helped record the songs, I have to cope with the cost of editing and promotion, although the first creative phase, recording and printing is already donne. I wish that the final edition may be ready within two months so that the disc can be available in stores in April.
The process of Crowdfunding will run for two months from now and the funds will be employed in a limited editions on CD and Vinyl, and some procedural expenses related to the issue. By reaching the amount requested or even a little bit more, hopefully, I can also invest in promotion.
I believe this support is a just and fair way to reward fans and all those who like my music, because they can acquire this new work in advance, in the format they want, firsthand.
