Help Kickstart Ghost Ship Octavius
The latest band to turn to crowdfunding for the, um, funds to make an album is Ghost Ship Octavius, the new band featuring drummer Van Williams (ex-Nevermore), guitarist Matt Wicklund (ex-God Forbid, ex-Himsa), bassist Sara Claudius, and vocalist Adon Fanion, who was born roughly around the time Williams was recording drums for the first Nevermore album. As is always the case with these sorts of affairs, the band are offering an array of goodies to anyone who pledges, the best of which, far and away, is the chance to be drawn onto the album’s cover art by Williams and Fanion for a thousand dollars. Sure, it’s a lot of money… but you’ll be immortalized on tiny mp3 player screens and computer monitors for all of eternity or until the next evolution in home listening formats, whichever comes first!
All kidding aside, I’ve really dug the material GSO have released thus far, so I’m hoping this works out for them! You can watch a video about the campaign below, and contribute to the campaign here.
