Everyone is really hopping on the bandwagon with these crowdfunding campaigns. The latest is by Providence doom metal duo The Body who have started a campaign to fund not a new record or tour, but a vehicle. The band states on their campaign page:
“If you follow us, you know we tour a ton but we’ve never owned a van that wasn’t at least 12 years old and had over 200,000 miles upon us buying it from some freak on Craigslist. Honestly, we feel weird about crowd funding so we tried to offer stuff that we would be selling anyways in some other format. We would buy it with our own money but we’re borderline animals with no careers because we’ve thrown our lives in the toilet to tour 6 months a year and surprisingly, yelling to people doesn’t pay like it did in the 80′s.”
Below you have the video found on the campaign and a sample of what The Body sound like in case you’ve never heard them.
