I Fight Dragons Reach $50k, Announce Additional Rewards

Posted by - 10:46 AM on 05/01/13
I Fight Dragons have raised $50,000 in 36 hours to fund their new album/vinyl release via Kickstarter. As a result, they have added additional "stretch goals" - whenever the campaign reaches a new milestone, backers will receive additional rewards for their original contributions. For example, the $20/double gatefold w/ companion graphic novel has become a triple gatefold w/ companion graphic novel, fold-out poster, fluorescent blue vinyl, a 7" picture disc shaped like an 8-bit fireball, and an exclusive flexi-disc with a thank you and secret music.

That's awesome and some great publicity for the band. They're solid dudes. This is like a reverse Amanda Palmer.

Even though I'm not a fan of the band, this is the best kickstarter I have ever seen.

This is so much vinyl for $20, I'm surprised they aren't losing money.
