Always wondering how much of this money goes to the pockets of the artists themselves... I mean, there is only so much costs a band can make (the size of I Fight Dragons), and +$95,000 is a big chunk of money.

They took a unique approach, and basically re-invested the additional money into better rewards. Originally, I donated $20 for a gatefold 2xLP. Because they made so much, I'm getting a triple gatefold, custom 7", booklets, a bunch of digital versions, and a TON of other stuff - really great approach to this.

Best fucking kickstarter campaign I've ever seen.

Also, Marc McClusky is producing the record. Going to be a great record!

They can't be making much money off people in the $20 group. So much stuff for $20, plus they have to ship a bunch of it
