Pathetic. Kickstarter has been more of a bad thing than good thing when it comes to musicians.

I'll fully admit I'm a moron and don't understand most things, but I don't get why these Kickstarter things are deemed so poorly? Isn't this a chance for fans of the band to help them do what they love while also getting something in return? I fully admit that I love this band and I'll probably end up supporting this because I believe strongly in their music and am happy to help them get to places they otherwise might not to tour their new record.

I realize this discussion has probably been had a million times on here, I'm still just confused why it's even an issue.

One of the stupidest Kickstarters I've seen yet. You want to be able to afford to tour?

1)Put out good music.
2)Draw crowds at your shows
3)Get good guarantees from promoters
4)??????
5)Profit.

I don't understand how 90% of musicians can't figure out how to use kickstarter without coming off as greedy and lazy. Pro-tip, 15 bucks for a 3 song EP is a bad start.

What the FUCK?? Using Kickstarter to get fans to give them money to take care of their babies? Are they fucking serious?

PS- I hope no one from this site donated or has plans to donate.

Chances are if you need $100 000 for a tour and you don't have $100 000, you shouldn't be touring.

Don't care if somehow having a child means you're entitled to ride around in a tour bus you not only need, but can't afford and won't pay for.
Yep, all of this

My main criticism is this: why even sign up for a tour if you know ahead of time that you can't fund it? Basic self budgeting.

If JohnLennon could quit touring, Eisley could quit touring.

This is completely ridiculous, but if fans fund it... More power to them.

$100,000 in a month? Yeahhh, good luck with that. I really like this band, but this is just a bit much.
