Indiana’s, Be My Doppelganger have announced today they they’ll be doing a kickstarter “pre-order” for their upcoming release tentatively titled Artless. Their last album, No Composure, was released via It’s Alive Records but they are taking on this project as a self-release. A full explanation is below.
Our last record, No Composure, as many of you know, was released by our good friend and forever-Panda Bear, Adam Ali via It’s Alive Records. We have nothing but great things to say about It’s Alive and we haven’t officially “parted ways” or anything, but we are proud to announce that we will be self-releasing our new record…with your help, of course!
We’ve set up a Kickstarter campaign, in order to do pre-orders for the record, along with a bunch of extra fancy shit, if that’s what you’re into. For the extremely low price of $1, you can pre-order an exclusive digital download of the record! But the rewards obviously increase along with the dollar amounts…lots of package deals! There’s a supremely awesome, hand-made, deluxe wooden box LP with tons of extras for $50, for instance. We really tried hard to NOT go into the familiar Kickstarter territory that so many bands often do, by refusing to offer anything as a reward that didn’t have a corresponding worth to its dollar amount. Basically, what I’m saying is, you’re gonna get what you pay for. We’re also offering the LPs as exclusive colors, only available to these pre-orders!
The campaign only lasts for 30 days, so act fast! And here’s where we beg you for your help and general good will. We REALLY, REALLY need as many of you as possible to not only pre-order the record in the next 30 days, but to also SPREAD THE WORD!!! Please, if you think even one of your friends might dig the new record, let them know about this! Share the link on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, your blog or wherever else you can think of. If we don’t reach our goal within 30 days, we will receive $0. We’re really going to depend on you guys a LOT for this one. Everyone on this mailing list has done so much to help us over the years and has come through for us in so many different ways and we thank you SO MUCH. Let’s keep it going!
