Tom Shear in Assemblage 23 has decided to try out crowdfunding for his new album. It’s up on Indiegogo now.
At the time of writing this the campaign has been up for a day, and it’s already at 175%, which is pretty awesome. An interesting twist on the campaign is that the album would have been released anyway, regardless of how the crowdfunding went. Instead, the money from the campaign is more of a way to connect with fans, offering cool stuff and experiences. And perhaps to get some lights for the new live show.
Tom’s made a video where he explains everything, so check it out on Indiegogo.
