Misery Signals Have Raised Almost $50,000 via Indiegogo
In the well-put words of MetalSucks reader Nick T., “Misery Signals have severed ties with whoever swallowed Ferret back in the day and are now trying to fund recording of their fourth studio album by what’s in YOUR wallet right now.” Couldn’t have said it better myself; thanks for doing my job for me, Nick!
Misery Signals have already raised over $41,000 since launching an Indiegogo campaign two days ago. Mighty impressive! Not as much so as the $125,000 Protest the Hero raised in a mere 24 hours (eventually topping out at $341,000 by campaign’s end). But Misery Signals haven’t been nearly as active as Protest the Hero in recent years, and I’m not sure they were ever as popular anyway. Still, that’s a hefty chunk of change they’ve raised already. And with 39 days left to go in the campaign there will surely be plenty more.
Participate in the campaign here, and watch the band’s pledge drive video below. I quite enjoyed Misery Signals’ last album Controller (stream in full on Spotify here) and I look forward to hearing this one. The new record will be the band’s first in five years. It’s worth noting that Misery Signals’ fund-raising goal is a whole lot more reasonable than Protest the Hero’s, and their prizes are also way more commensurate with their true value (i.e. no “pizza party with the band” options for a shitload of money).
Elsewhere in Indiegogo news, Twelve Foot Ninja are attempting to raise $45,000 AUD (roughly $46,659.77 USD) to film a very complex new music video. Crikey! They even recruited members of Periphery to help canvas for money and make guest appearances in the video.
