In today’s day and age, crowdfunding has become the go-to solution for a lot of bands. When you factor in that even the biggest names in the horrorpunk genre aren’t exactly diving into a vault full of coins like Scrooge McDuck, it becomes inevitable that bands and artists are going to need some help along the way at one point or another.
Many bands have successfully used the crowdfunding options to help fund new albums and tours, and that is what brings us to my friends in Black Cat Attack today.
Having relentlessly toured over the past three years, and this touring has unfortunately taken its toll on their beloved tour van, Van Akroyd. Given their situation and their never ending desire to keep touring and bringing horrorpunk to as many people as they can, the band has turned to the community to help fund a new touring vehicle.
Head over to the Black Cat Attack Needs A Van IndieGoGo to lend your support if you can. The band is (as of this writing) about 15% of the way, and are currently in the midst of setting up some fundraising shows to help get to their goal, so stay tuned to the Black Cat Attack Facebook page for further updates!
Switching gears, I also wanted to shine a spotlight on the IndieGoGo campaign for Colour Correct My Cock 2, the sequel to the amazing original CCMC, which is something that I can’t highly recommend for any fans of horror, exploitation, grindhouse and all that shit. I had the privilege of viewing the original CCMC in its theatrical debut, and I can safely say it was one of the greatest viewing experiences of my 30 years on this planet.
As of this writing, the campaign for CCMC2 has already surpassed its goal, but given that the campaign is operating as a pre-order for the film, I still wanted to spread the word to the masses. Head over to the Official Colour Correct My Cock 2 IndieGoGo page to pre-order your copy and help support some good ol’ grindhouse in 2016. And of course, keep an eye on the Colour Correct My Cock 2 Facebook page for further updates.
