here's what irks me:

they were already planning to make a dvd, then got their camera stolen. that certainly sucks, but turning that into a "we need 11 grand to film a dvd" kickstarter feels a bit suspicious/greedy.

that, and generally how this band treats their fans- dropping off tours, canceling shows, never explaining anything that's going on with their band and having an attitude when people want to know what's going on with their favorite band. anytime a band who disrespects their fans that much asks for 11 grand to make a dvd, I call foul.

Look at other bands in the scene, who has released DVD's in the last couple years? The only one I can think of is All Time Low and the bonus DVD that came with Senses Fail's "The Fire"

Labels aren't throwing money at DVD releases.
If they had more lyrics about basements, pretzels, and turning on fountains today, I think the situation might be slightly different.

Don't forget about metaphorically being a pigeon.

I don't think the band is trying to "Jonny Craig" anyone. They want to put out something nice, the label probably isn't going to pay anything to make it happen, so they're left to their own devices. Would it be possible to make it happen in a cheaper way or in a way that the Kickstarter model isn't needed? Maybe, but it would operate differently and they'd be making concessions and giving up some creative control. If this works out, then great. If not, hopefully they figure out something that does work and people keep the bitching to a minimum.

I wanted to get the $30 one but I don't have a credit card, only paypal. :\
And I don't even want to imagine what the conversation would be like if I tried to explain this to my dad so he'd let me use his credit card.

In the next week or so I'll probably treat myself to the 30 dollar package. Is there two different versions of the dvd? I want the longer one obvs

Talking it over with the bride to be. I spun Reach for the Sun last night for her and crossing my fingers she's into it.
My parents want to do something for us for the wedding so I'm going to throw the idea at them this weekend when they come out to visit.

Would definitely make it a memorable reception.

Youre wrong. Im working with epitaph on a dvd now, and Razor and tie has offered me money to shoot a dvd for them last month. The money is there, not always great, but labels back them even if its not a physical release.

Just another reason why you are one of my favorite posters on this website.

"HD DVD"? Is that possible. Surely they mean a blu-ray?

Sucks that the camera was stolen. Would be good if it gets funded.
