Motograter’s Crowdfunding Campaign is a Rousing Success


motograter fund raising thermometerIf you were one of the five people in the world who was excited about the possibility of Motograter playing Knotfest in October, you are most likely a member of Motograter. However, if you are that sixth person who doesn’t really care but doesn’t not care, you may now be mildly disappointed to learn that the band’s chances are playing the fest are now roughly on par with the chances of Maria Brink marrying Rob Halford.

As you may recall, the nu-metallers launched a crowdfunding campaign last month to raise $800 so they could play a battle of the bands, the winners of which will get to “to perform [at] the legendary, Knotfest!” Well, while there are, as of this writing, still thirty-seven days before that campaign ends, as it stands right now, the band is still $720 shy of their goal. Which, in case you’re bad at math, means that they’ve only raised eighty bucks to date. 

Keep in mind that the campaign launched three weeks ago. And that those eighty dollars come from three contributors. And that most recent donation was made twenty days ago. Meaning a few people donated the first week the campaign was live, and that’s it.

Holy shit, that’s pathetic. Corey Taylor probably makes $800 just for waking up in the morning.

Half the time I make fun of some terrible band and then their supporters come crawling out of the woodwork and it turns out that, despite all the hard work Mother Nature does to weed out the morons, the band is still at least semi-popular.

Something tells me I ain’t gettin’ no angry e-mails about Motograter, though. I guess when Ivan Moody left the band, he took all of their juju with him.

Meanwhile, Knotfest has just added a bunch of more bands to the line-up, including Napalm Death, Immolation, Satyricon, Fear Factory, Prong, and Exmortus. Get more details here.
