I Am Abomination to crowdfund new album

Detroit, Michigan progressive metal/post-hardcore outfit I Am Abomination has resurfaced to inform fans that they intend to crowdfund a new album. Here's the official word:
"First off, we would like to apologize for keeping you in the dark for so long on social media. A few years back we had plans of doing another full length album. We were extremely excited to get the ball rolling but due to unforeseen circumstances, unfortunately we could not go through with it at that time. "As time went on, we were ready to chalk it up and let IAA be a thing of the past. That realization hurt because we truly love creating music for our fans and also to push ourselves as musicians to create something amazing. Flash forward a few years later and we can see that our fans clearly still have an interest in a new album. With that being said, here we are in 2018 where music is consumed in a completely different way and we feel that albums have lost a lot of what makes them so special. "We have an idea... we don't just want to release a new album for you all. We want to provide you with an experience. We want you all to connect with the story we are trying to convey in a way that we feel will invoke the best emotional reaction. We are still brainstorming ways to do this but one thing is for sure, it will need to be funded. "We will need to pay software developers, studio musicians, recording costs, visual media designers, etc to chase this dream of providing a truly unique listening experience for the fans who deserve it so much for sticking with us even through this long period of inactivity. "It's do or die for this album at this point so in order for us to release the album the way we want we have chosen crowd-funding as a means to make it happen. We don't have a specific goal in mind yet because we are still figuring out the costs of everything involved but we absolutely need the support of everyone who wants this to happen. "This post will serve as a gauge for us to see how much actual interest there is in our fans participating in a crowd-funding campaign. If we determine there isn't enough interest left we are sadly going to have to pull the curtain closed for good. "If you have ever showed IAA to a friend that enjoyed us, please tag them. "If you feel passionate about IAA doing another full length album, please share this post. "Let's get the word out and see how much support we can rally behind this!"

I think relying on your fans to crowdfund you're supposed "creative outlet", is a joke. It's a joke that any band not be willing to invest in their brand, business. Bands and artists aren't owed a salary or money to create their vision. The bands owe it to themselves to create, and let hard work, dedication, and a belief in ones ability to be driven to make your band work, on any level. fck any bands that Crowdfund.

Maybe they should get this thing called a 'job' I hear when you work at a job they give you 'money'

The guitarist in this band produced albums for a living... Translation: We have run out of money for drugs, please pay us to record an album in Pod Farm.

That was... that was just awful.

Guys this shit is legit. I heard one idea IAA was tossing around was if they meet their goal they were going to touch your boyfriend's wieners.

this is trash if you can't produce an album while being a band which can draw more than 50 people a show, then you should stop being a band. You guys just want new shit and want fans to pay for it. Scum bags wouldn't of last back in the day and seemingly can't last even now. That said, I will donate $50.

lets note that the singer is the same dude that launched a website to the effect of gimme5bucks.com to cyber pan-handle. Saying the music industry 'chewed him up and spit him out'. He also had to stop touring because he was being sued for not paying child support but told everyone it was because his band mates were drunks. all around quality human.

A band who had 1-2 years of mediocre success touring at a national level crowdfunding an album nearly a decade after they were relevant. Just give it up already.


anonymous 9/6/2018 3:23:10 PM

Wintersun is stoked for these guys


anonymous 9/8/2018 7:03:56 PM

Heard the band of three people now weigh a combined 2,000 pounds. They're going to use the money for more food guys. #feedafrica #39centsaday #thepriceofacupofcoffee
