a new form of kickstarter i see...interesting

This record will own.

oh goodness, those rewards.

Love conditions, but those rewards suck. If contributing 10 dollars got me a CD as well I'd do it. That's why I did Confides.

wait, none of them include a copy of the record? not even digital? this was the first donation-style project i was really excited to support, and (at least while these are the same rewards) now i don't think i will. come on, guys.

yeah. Indiegogo allows the artist to keep the money regardless of whether they make their goal. Kickstarter you have to make your goal to get the money

Awesome band, and I'm sure this album will rule.

However, I prefer the Kickstarter platform much more than Indiegogo. Anyone agree or disagree?

Shit, they've taken ages. I thought they were already recording

I wanna help this band out but I would rather hand them 10 dollars then go through this thing. I honestly would of given a good amount if a cd was offered but I just can't justify giving that much when the rewards are just twitter shout outs and stuff I don't care about. I have bought all their eps and albums and will continue to but nothing about this is appealing other than getting their album made. I may give like 5 dollars but its not a priority atm. I hope they release a great album and can afford it but not offering even a digital download just sorta rubs me the wrong way. I know it is greedy to say but I wanna give a lot to the band and get something special from it to remember even if it is something as simple as the cd you could just get anywhere.

I like this band, and that clip sounds good, but $750 for dinner with them? Seriously? They better pay for the meal haha

Well it's 750 for Dinner, two tickets to a show, meet and greet, skype performance, thank you liner note, skype chat, t-shirt/stickers, personalized auto and a personal tweet.

That sounds very strange. Maybe they forgot to include it? I mean at least a digital copy should be included in 10 dollars and up.

I think the assumption they're making, which is the assumption that I would make were I in a band in this position, is that anyone who cares enough to donate money to help them make a record already owns their pre-existing music in some capacity.
