New Protest the Hero album? YOU DECIDE!

Quote:
Short Summary

Can you believe that we've been a band for 13 years and counting? We've finally decided to take matters into our own hands and want to raise money for the album directly from the people who have helped keep this band going all these years. In this time, we've release 3 full length albums, a live DVD/CD, as well as an EP and a 7 inch. We've toured all over the world (but still wanting to check off more destinations and visit more places) and pretty much lived and breathed this band as long as we've been in existence.

We are finally free from all obligations and want to be in control of our “careers”. In general, the record industry is backwards and we'd be stupid to renegotiate with anyone at this time. Crowdfunding seems to be something that's working. Whether or not this is the next thing for the music industry, it's a way that supporters of a band can know exactly where their hard earned dollars are going. No middlemen, no commissions, no bullshit.



What We Need & What You Get

Over the last couple months, we kept our ears to the ground, watched other people use this method and actually succeed. There have been many different approaches and fans of music are starting to understand this format, but it's lacking something. Bands and artists don't show you how the money gets spent.

We however, will account to you to show you how every penny is spent and prove that making a top notch record comes at a price. Who knows, if we exceed our goal we will be able to do things we may have only dreamed about. Essentially, the success of this campaign will determine how amazing this record will become. We are set up for Flex Funding which means if we don't reach our goal, we are still getting the money that is raised. So, if we don't reach our goal, we will have to reevaluate how we are planning to do this record. Regardless, we are ready to deliver this thing however our campaign plays out.

Remember, anything that is available through the perks is exclusive to the campaign. The CD Digipak, Gatefold Vinyl, and Tshirt are all one time offers. None of them will ever be printed again in this way.

I almost did the post-cards from Arif, but decided it'd be better not to wring out my wallet and just do the gatefold vinyl.

This is climbing super fast, the fastest I have seen an indiegogo for a band move yet.

Grabbed the CD digipack, while the listening party would be cool the price is a bit steep for my liking.

So either make a change or shut the fuck up about it already.

I can't decide which is cooler. The pizza party, having Rody write you a song, the band covering any song you want, or being on the album. All cool ideas, but all very costly. If only I had like $10k lying around. I could do them all!

Pretty funny, I saw these guys open for BLS this summer and the singer was complaining about the music industry between songs. Pretty cool idea but you'd obviously have to get to their level before you can go this route. I'm actually surprised with how much they've made so far, good for them.
