Ok, in this case there REALLY is NO way this band needs a Kickstarter. They're freaking HUGE in the Christian market. Most people I know who don't listen to anything outside of radio even know who they are. "Becoming a part of the process" is such a bullshit excuse for "we want your money because its easier this way".

If you pay ten grand you get to name the album? That's amazing, haha.

This is going a bit overboard with using Kickstarter, though; I've always argued that bands can do what they want because that's their right, but I don't want it to become a moneywhoring trickshow.

I wish Kickstarter was around when Acceptance broke up. I would have given all of my money to them to finish their second album. Damn the old days.

Shame they had to include "title must be approved by us". Might've been worth the 10k just to make them call it something like like "Big Gay Al's Fabulous Adventure of Love and Tolerance"
