Psychostick Call On Fans To Fund New Album
(Rock Ridge) Psychostick have launched a fan funding campaign with Indiegogo.com to raise money to record a new album and complete construction on their recording studio.
The campaign kicked off on Tuesday, November 5, 2013, and will run for a month here. As part of the kick-off, the band is premiering a video for their brand new song, "Obey The Beard," on the IndieGoGo campaign page. Fans who contribute to the fund raising efforts will score a free MP3 of the song and other cool stuff for helping the band finance their next album and the completion of their recording studio.
Says Psychostick guitarist Josh Key: "This fundraiser is not just for a new album, but so much more! We're building a sweet studio; we want to put out new music and videos on a regular basis, so that fans don't have to wait through long dry spells between albums to hear something new from us. This fundraiser will enable us to make that happen." Vocalist Rob Kersey concurs, saying, "Having our own studio and the ability to record songs right away will be a huge dream come true for us. We literally have around a hundred or so song ideas that often get put on the back burner, but with this sweet setup we can finally become that recording machine we've always wanted to be. This fundraiser along with our amazing fans can help us fuel this machine for more brutal laughs in the years to come."
Psychostick also plans to release several promotional videos during the course of the Indiegogo campaign, and contributors will also be privy to additional private videos once the album recording process gets underway. Like other fan funding efforts, Psychostick is planning a number of incentive tiers as part of the campaign. Among the items being offered are things such as: a signed CD, custom ringtone recorded by the band, exclusive t-shirt, custom kick drum head, guest list for life, cameo in a Psychostick video, and everything and the (literal) kitchen sink.
