i love misery signals and havent listened to them in years. but all these campaigns are getting out of hand. it does not cost $50 to write, record, mix, master, and press an album. i am definitely interested in one or two of those packages, but....i dont know. things have changed a lot since i used to do this stuff 10 years ago.
hard to believe they can't get picked up by a label like Sumerian or Rise or something similar. I suppose they could just want to do a record by themselves, but making fans pay an arm and a leg for something like a cd is kind of selfish I think.
that said, I'll probably donate. I love this band. the website is down for me though so I can't peep the packages
With all of the shit talking I do on these things, I can say comfortably this is the one band out of the 50 of these things started in the last few months i'd donate to.
These guys worked their asses off from the start and have always loved what they do. From what I know, this album is almost fully written already and they are looking to, from now on, do things without a label. All the of band members live in separate states, some married, some with kids I think even. Signing to a label would more than likely mean multiple LP's and extensive touring they can't commit to. Yet, they still want to keep this band going. THAT my friends, is worth donating to.
I actually really like this crowd funding trend. I like getting thanked in the liner notes for buying something that I would want to buy anyways. And 30$ isn't so bad considering its also sort of a donation. Definitely will be picking up one of those.
