Night Dive (featuring members of Portugal. The Man, Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground, Wild Orchid Children, Alligators, Time To Fly, Arper, The Divorce, Dawn Solaris, Map Of June, and Ships) have launched a Kickstarter to help fund their new multi-media project.
Night Dive is a collection of friends and musicians that grew up playing music with one another – sometimes in the same band, sometimes as members in the same thriving music scene. The connection shared by this group was unique, but it wasn't until this connection was removed several years back that it was fully realized just how unique it was. After playing music with other people, and replacing the time spent together...

Greg McKillop (Speaker for the Dead) has started up a Kickstarter to fund a "pay what you can" recording studio.
The idea for this project comes from my own personal experience of recording bands for years (and being recorded myself) both in and out of pro audio environments. There is a huge gap between the "we just formed a band and need a demo" level and the "I am an established artist ready to go into a real studio environment with a producer and record a full length album." There are very few options for entry level artists to produce examples of their work to shop around and get gigs, and thus they end up spending thousands of dollars to record a CD when they have not had a chance...

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.

We have ambitious plans for touring in 2013 and beyond. We expect this upcoming album to be our most successful record yet, and we want to be able to play in front of every single person that will to listen to us. This includes all of our fans in the U.S., as well satisfying relentless requests for us to play for our fans overseas. Specifically, we will be supporting Say Anything on their Rarities Tour this Summer (See dates). But, this is going to be more difficult than ever, since we not only have to support ourselves on these tours, but we have four beautiful new mouths to feed, safely transport, and care for. This...

James Dewees has started a Kickstarter campaign to relaunch Reggie and The Full Effect with new album.
i've spent many years touring with my chemical romance as their keyboard player and over those years i realized that i am without a doubt, a silly person, i write silly music, say silly things, i generally have a very absurd look on life. Reggie, is how i share that silliness with all of you. I've always been honest with my music. Whatever goes on in my life i write music about.

Chantry Johnson, guitarist of The Cab, has launched a kickstarter to fund his solo EP. You can listen to his song "Tell Me The Truth" here.
Message2012 was the most earth-shattering, metamorphic, mind-blowing year of my life. It was full of heart-break, depression, success, change, rejection, failure, and triumph. Fortunately, music has been there to help me keep my head through the dramatic ups and downs of the past year. As The Cab takes a short break from touring, I have finally found the time to do what I've been needing to do for a long time: put out an official debut EP as a solo artist. While I am still 100% a part of The Cab, I have greatly enjoyed the opportunity to...

Kevin Devine started today, and then later today finished, a moderately lofty Kickstarter campaign to fund his next two full-length records. According to the description Devine offered up on his project page, he wanted to raise a sum of $50,000 to fund the recording and releasing of one solo and one full-band album. These funds would go toward costs like the recording, producing, manufacturing, publicizing and marketing of the records; furthermore, the funds would help Devine tour and promote the albums following their release.

When I write "moderately lofty," I mean it. Devine pegging the costs here at $50,000 is certainly not ridiculous. He's seen some success as a musician, at...
