That's Outrageous Releases New Song and Asks for...

Posted by: Thomas Nassiff (05/13/12)
That's Outrageous has been dropped from Rise Records but is still going to be a band. The group has started an IndieGoGo page for people to donate toward their second full-length record, and there is a new song streaming in the replies.
From the Project PageNormally, recording a full length costs anywhere from 15-25,000 dollars and that's just for the recording itself. There's also travel, food, mastering, getting CDs made, marketing and promotion money, strings, deodorant (we smell terrible), drum heads, sticks, and much more. After much thought and many cut corners we figured we would need around $7,500 to make this happen on our own.

im sorry. but you're just not talking to the right people if you dont think that you can make a full length record for less than 7,500 dollars these days.

they have to be fucking high to even throw out the 25,000 dollar mark.

Good luck to them.

Edit: Ok, their top prize sucks!

$1,500 Perk 12
You will be a featured guest vocalist on a song off of our 2nd album. This also includes a day with the band in studio (Travel Paid for by you), a listening party to all of the songs, and dinner on us ;) You also get rewards 1-6, 9 and 10!

Ok, they're from the NY area and with their budget, I doubt they'll be traveling to the west coast to work on an album. Now, if there was a kid out in Cali who really dug this band, he'd have to pay for flight to the east coast to record guest vocals. Also, with their budget, you'll probably be treated to half off appetizers at Applebees for "dinner". I respect any band that goes through a kickstarter type of website to raise money but the incentives have to be good.

16 year olds who like this shit will just move on to other blandcore. No way they make the money. That breakdown is fucking awful. Nearly a minute of the song is just space.

Right, this is that Kickstarter ripoff site...

Actually, very curious if they have the fanbase to pull this off.

Edit: Wait, according to Perk 9, they have fifty bass guitars? What?

25,000 dollars for salad dressing? I'd rather kickstart the millionaires. Song is terrible by the way.

Why bother selling your bass guitars to make your shitty music when you can get a bunch of 12 year olds to steal their parents credit cards

Wasn't this band started as a joke? thought they would let it go pretty easily in a situation like this.
