This week, I found another way to get involved. Madison, WI metal band Seven Signs is trying to get their album off the ground. For anyone who knows anything about the industry, they know that it is very time consuming and costly to record a studio album. Many bands can't afford it and many more go broke as individuals paying for it, so Seven Signs reached out for help. Through their Kickstarter page, they are offering awesome reasons to donate toward their new album.
They aren't asking for something for nothing. Instead, they are offering incentive rewards. The rewards are based on the level at which a backer pledges.
$15 - Receive a copy of the debut album (so, basically you are just pre-ordering the album and helping them reach their goal).
$30 - Receive a signed copy of the debut album and a sticker pack.
$55 - Receive a signed copy of the debut album and an exclusive T-Shirt
$100 - Receive a signed copy of the debut album, an exclusive T-Shirt and a special mention in the album and on the band's website.
$175 - Receive a signed copy of the debut album, an exclusive T-Shirt, a special mention in the album and on the band's website and a limited Dickies-style shirt (10 available).
So, its easy enough - click this link, pledge whatever you are comfortable pledging and pass it on to everyone who may want to help an amazing local band. Like I said, the lowest level of $15 is just pre-ordering the album essentially. Get out there and do it!
