Vinyl sales were up in 2011, and there’s a definite demand for local music on vinyl. But it’s still a costly venture for most local bands. So many are turning to their fans for assistance.
It’s been the collective goal of Me & Mountains to one day release their music on vinyl. So when the band completed recording it’s latest album, Feral, the members decided to create a Kickstarter account to fund Feral’s vinyl release. Kickstarter is one of several websites (Indie GoGo is another popular one)
that allow people all over the internet to fund creative projects like albums, indie films, comic books and more.
“Its been a great way to gauge people’s interest in our band and in vinyl as a viable format as compared to CD. We are extremely grateful to everyone who has donated thus far,” says Burris Dixon, vocalist and bass player for Me & Mountains.
The band launch their Kickstarter page on Monday and is already over halfway to their goal.
“We are excited and surprised by the quick and generous support so far. We thought we MIGHT have a chance and it’s turned out better than we ever expected. Hopefully we can pull this off with more support before the deadline,” says Dixon.
Me & Moutains’ Kickstarter campaign for Feral lasts until February 8th. Click here for more information on how to support the album’s release.
