The Classic Crime vocalist Matt McDonald has posted a blog regarding the negative reactions that his band has received from their recent kickstarter campaign.
From The BlogI want to say that part of me finds this pretty funny. Why would someone hate us for having fans that love us? If a fan sees a package and wants it, then purchases it, why would somebody hate that? It's ridiculous. This isn't charity, nobody is giving us anything. People are purchasing products.

In an overwhelming show of support from fans, The Classic Crime's $30,000 Kickstarter for their new album has already been funded and then some in less than a day. Any money beyond the goal will be used to support the upcoming tour and on the marketing of their new album.
Message from the BandEarlier today I filmed a video at the studio. In the video I thanked everyone for the overwhelming support of our project, and shared that we were more hopeful than ever that we would reach our goal.

I'm not posting that video right now because it's completely irrelevant. We have to make another, better video, in order for us to properly thank you profusely for giving us the ability to make...
