Psychostick Makes Unique Marketing Pitch To Raise Money To Record New Album
Comedy/metal band Psychostick has launched a new way to help raise recording money for their next album: in exchange for a $50 donation, Psychostick will use their fans’ names as a lyric in their new and unwritten song, “400 Thank Yous” (working title). The band plans to start recording in August with a spring 2009 release via Rock Ridge Music.
“Our fans have been asking more and more frequently about when we're going to record our next album. The problem has not been a lack of songs - we have enough songs to record two new albums. We simply haven't been able to afford to stop touring and record it. Finally, something had to be done. This was our solution,” says guitarist Josh “The J” Key.
From July 14th through September 30th, Psychostick will be accepting the $50 donations (limited to only 380) through their website, www.psychostick.com. Businesses will have the opportunity to name drop in one of only 20 places for $250.
In addition to the name use, every donor will receive a signed copy of the new album and a signed poster. One lucky individual will win a pair of tickets plus airfare and accommodations to the CD release party.*
The band has also posted a heartfelt promotional video on YouTube.com, also shown below.
“So in a nutshell, drop some cash our way and your name shall be immortalized in a Psychostick song. We'll pronounce it correctly and everything,” promises Key.
Psychostick has created a special page on their website that details exactly where the money goes (studio time, new equipment, software, etc). Visitors to the page can follow the bands progress dollar for dollar. In total, the band hopes to raise $23,000.
