House of Heroes Launch IndieGoGo For Full Length

Posted by - 03:05 PM on 07/30/14
House of Heroes have started and IndieGoGo for their next full-length album.
We want to make a true concept album. A story.
Often times we'd discuss how fun it would be to do this, but we never followed through for several reasons. Fear of total commercial failure, the grandiose scope of the whole thing, the fact that it's not the 70's anymore and it's hard enough to hold someones attention for one song, let alone an entire album. But we believe that we've found a group of fans that are craving this very thing from us, and we are now inviting you to join us as we move forward into the next chapter of House of Heroes.

The End is Not The End wasn't a true concept album?

Rewards seem pricey. $100 to get vinyl that might not actually get made? Wish they used the kickstarter "only take my money if it actually gets enough funding" approach.

Why wouldn't it get made?

I'd assume that if they come up well short of the funding goal they wouldn't be able to make the record, otherwise why have the goal?

This is an awesome idea. They've already proven with songs like By Your Side that they can handle stories/concepts very well so to have that across an album would be fantastic.

Can the story be about a group of superheroes renting a house together?

Pretty sure you have to have *a* goal to do this kind of thing -- seems like they would take the # of things you can 'buy' and multiple it by the dollar amounts or something. I didn't read anything that led me to believe if you pledged for a reward you wouldn't get it. And I can personally vouch for the character of the band and say I don't see anyone they'd go full Payne on any fans.

Hrm okay. Yeah, I have no worries about them blowing the money, I just assumed they'd need to reach the goal to get the record made.

Also speaking of Payne, these guys have already raised as much as the Floodlove project

I backed the physical cd. Wanted to do the vinyl but $100 is out of my price range unfortunately. Don't quite understand how they have the vinyl only for $100 and then the vinyl, cd, tshirt, and sweatshirt for $125

The $100 package includes the cd and the shirt.

I don't use Snapchat, but that "SnapChat every day from the studio" is a pretty cool option for them that's easy to do
