So from what I gather... The record is already made, and they're just holding it hostage until their fans collectively cough up 150k? Pretty dickblasty, but I guess that's one way to make sure you recoup expenses from making your shitty record.

yeah, okay...

edit: the touch on the $5000.00 pledge was nice "Album not included, you can clearly afford to buy that shit separately." well played...

Seriously? Fuck these guys.

The only thing is, MSI has always had this act of being "dicks" like that. I don't know why this seems so deplorable and surprising when they pull this shit all the time. I don't think the record will go unreleased if it isn't funded

I actually think that's really cool. If I was super rich, and actually liked this band, I would totally do that. Having a song named after you would be pretty awesome.

LOL.

Isn't Gerard Way married to one of the members?

I think this is a pretty safe assumption. I've never listened to them, but the songs they play at the end sound (if those are new) releasable in their current state - so who knows.

I've never even heard of these guys yet they've already managed to piss me off.

TheRxBandit 10/26/12 12:49 PM

I cannot believe there are people that like this band.

Feenucks 10/26/12 01:00 PM

No MSI record could possibly cost that much to make.

blackmold 10/26/12 01:38 PM

I'm not a huge fan of these guys but I'm sure if they saw these replies, they'd be laughing. They try to be controversial so the fact that their Kickstarter is pissing everybody off probably makes them happy. Especially since they probably know it'll get funded.

For a vinyl that is only available through this and will never be printed again, it doesn't seem that bad to me.

The bassist, who is actually pretty hot.

Loved them when i was 15, cant listen to them now.

Scrawns 10/26/12 02:29 PM

Confide asks for 35,000 and this band wants 150 lol

Freshman15Davey 10/26/12 02:53 PM

150,000?!? Is the studio on fucking Mars?!
