PtH is raising funds for their new album on Indiegogo.
Put in $25. I love their albums and those clips sounded like more awesome. Thanks for the heads up.
Edit: They're over half way already. And someone took the $5k slot. That person must really love some PtH.
Pretty incredible that a band that size is going to continue without a label. I wonder if this is gong to be a trend to come.
This is probably the most popular band I've seen do something like this, and they're probably going to reach the goal in like 3 days.
Many are perks selling out already. good to see
They're only about $20k shy at this point. Looks like they might not need a label after all.
Unbelievable amount of money they've already raised.
This is pretty cool! I have to give them credit for the balls to the wall approach.
THEY DID IT!
This is enough for me to look into their work - I respect folks who think outside the box like this.
Plus, I like pizza, a lot.
Am I reading this right? In under 24 hours, Protest the Hero not only reached their $125K goal, but EXCEEDED it by $12K?
Out-fucking-rageous! I gotta respect that. I bet the band is just floored.
Impressive indeed. Much respect to them. Looking forward to seeing whether or not they took advantage of thousands of people, or if they'll just waste $125k.
I would spend 2500$ just to make them cover Bear Force One.
Respect to the people who forked out the cash.
Man this is going to be incredible.
Well to be fair, Tim Schafer raised 4x that much in 24 hours and then 40 x that in around a month through Kickstarter for his adventure game, and alot of other indie game companies raised millions through their kickstarter pages, PTH's campaign isn't super impressive when you consider the grand scheme of things. However, on the other hand, I guess it is super impressive considering most bands don't really go through crowdfunding so this is kind of a first for a "big" band.
That's what I mean, it's gotta be the biggest strictly fan-funded project campaign thus far. They're at nearly $150K and they've still got like 29 days to go. Just bonkers to me, it's a huge chunk of money, whether a video game kickstarter made more or not!
Amanda Palmer became the talk of the musicoblogosphere last year after her Kickstarter got $300K in 24 hours, eventually ending at $1.2M. So I think she remains the gold standard in music crowd-funding. But I wouldn't expect PTH's fans to be quite as adoring as AP's, so their tally is still pretty impressive too.
D'oh! I completely forgot about that!
Heh that's interesting, I guess she left Roadrunner on her own terms after all the restructuring?
