I remember reading in the Butch Walker autobiography that these guys got bummed out of a lot of royalties by their label and publishing company so the fact that they can't afford to finance themselves and the families that they all now have is no real surprise :(
They all live in my area. They do alright, they're an independent band now though

I mean, they didn't even write their biggest song... There guys certainly aren't making the big bucks, it's expensive to self release an album. People seem to think if you have a ixolld

I will always enjoy this band, no matter how childish and stupid their songs actually are. A Hangover You Don't Deserve is one of my favorite pop punk albums ever. I also enjoyed their latest album Fishin For Woos. They're always fun and I bet they're a blast live (too bad they never come to Europe except the UK).

People who are anti kickstarter, pledgemusic etc. are clearly those who illegally download music, as you obviously do not realise how little money bands have. The "go get a job" argument is pathetic, being in a band is their job. Anyway, it's exciting news to hear about the October UK tour, even if it is to be expected by now.

Nice to see they already got 70% of their goal. BFS is a hard working band and it's definitely ok to start a pledge like this. They could use some help, and sure deserve it way better than that Johnny Craig guy.

I mean at least part of the money you are giving up to fund this project goes to a charity

I'm curious what these guys made in radio royalties when they had a radio hit for what seemed like every month in 2003-2006...

But kudos for having some interesting pledge ideas-- reading through them was entertaining.

Bands barely make anything from radio royalties..

And am I the only one that finds it kind of interesting that they're doing this before any songs on the album are even written?

I think they think that no one is going to actually shell out $200k for it.
