The Tourniquet Ark - a project from Tourniquet's Ted Kirkpatrick - has launched a Kickstarter campaign to crowd fund a new album.
You can check out full details on the campaign, including available perks for backers, at this location. The Tourniquet Ark also issued this statement:
"My name is Ted Kirkpatrick. I am the drummer and main songwriter in the band Tourniquet. I love animals and I despise animal abuse. I have been so blessed by all of you who have joined me at The Tourniquet Ark – where animal welfare meets Tourniquet - thank you! We have had some great comments and discussions here. I’m asking you now to take a new step and join me in making a cool - and I believe, worthwhile album. If my goal is reached, I promise to get this album in as many hands and to as many ears as possible.
"After a very successful Tourniquet Kickstarter campaign in early 2011 (thank you Tourniquet fans) I hopefully have a good idea of some really cool rewards to give out. I hope you’ll agree there is some great rewards on this one!
"If funded, the money will go for studio time, production costs, mixing, guest musicians (should be cool), artwork, merchandise, advertising, manufacturing – wow – I may be missing a thing or three, but you get the idea!
"Your pledge will allow us to make this possible together: – to encourage people to develop a 'compassion for creation,' connecting it to their daily lives. I believe this is the perfect time to do an album for musicians, fans, and anyone else who is willing to look at the plight of animals. The momentum has never been stronger and it’s not going away. American journalist and two time Pulitzer prize winner Nicholas Kristof speaks about animal protection as a critical moral question in today's society. 'Society will indeed look back on this time and wonder how humanity could have been so callous and cruel in its treatment of innocent and vulnerable creatures.' I think he’s right. Thank you all."
