We The Kings Indiegogo

Posted by: Joe DeAndrea (09/27/13)
We the Kings launched an indiegogo to fund their fourth album. It was fully funded in less than 24 hours but you can still give money to the project.

When did they start this? It didn't expect to see that they've passed their goal already. Clearly they have more fans still than I thought they did. Now hopefully they'll make another album like the first one, I really doubt that will happen though.

I didn't know they were relevant still! I remember seeing them on my mini wheats box not too long ago. That was weird.

For $12,000 you get the privilege to open for We the Kings for a week.

I don't have words.

Paying to get on tours isn't a new thing...but 12k for a week? Thaaaaaaat's a stretch.

I felt like 35k wasn't too unreasonable for a full length, especially compared to Jonny Craig. However I don't like it indie gogo just because they keep the money if they don't reach their goal.

Oh I know. Just seems like a lot of money for a small amount of time opening up for a band that has (aside from a dedicated yet small fanbase) fallen off considerably.

Yea I wish labels stayed around so bands could spend their lives trying to repay their advances. So much better.

It's not like they're some local band that needs jobs at mcdonalds and guitar center... Their job IS the band.

They obviously have tons of fans that can support them just as they should.
Why do fans of music expect everything for nothing now? There are perks to contributing, fans know what they're spending their money on and that's their choice to make.
Go ahead and wait for the free leaked download if that's how you roll... It'll be there waiting for you.

a part of me feels like they are such an established band(top 40 hits, sold out tours, main stage warped) that they shouldnt do this. but a part of me sees it as a future for bands, idk.

edit: $61,000 in day. they will be rolling in a lot of dough with this. please make an album good enough to justify that amount. havent been into them since the debut and a handful of songs on the second record.
