Whitechapel Crowdfunding New DVD


Whitechapel are the latest band to take to Indiegogo to crowdsource a project — in this case, a DVD. Explains the band:

“To our fans, friends, and family. We are coming to you today to ask for your help in funding a full-scale Whitechapel DVD release through Indiegogo, which we have been hard at work on since January 2013. We’ve been filming non-stop, documenting our lives on the road as we have been touring the world and have a great amount of live performance and backstage footage.

“Our DVD will consist of a behind the scenes/documentary portion about the band as well as a portion with professional live video and audio. We decided to make a DVD after the well-received attention of our Spring Tour Documentary in 2013, and what better way than to get our amazing fans involved with this task directly via crowd funding. This campaign is not our way of asking for a hand out, simply asking for help from our fans to create a special DVD that will make memories for us all. Please join us in our campaign to make the best Whitechapel DVD possible!”

The band launched the sixty-day campaign yesterday, January 14, with a goal of $35,000; I’m writing this at 9:41 AM on January 15 and they’ve already hit $10, 824. So unless something goes horribly awry, they should just totally curb stomp that $35K goal.

Here’s a trailer for the campaign…

…and here’s the previous tour documentary they mentioned, in case you’ve never seen it:

You can contribute to the campaign here. There are, as always, cool goodies available, depending on how much you’re willing to spend; I think the best one is a screening of the DVD with the band, which will cost you $1,000. Hope you saved that bar mitzvah money…
