Austrian Death Machine is an Arnold Schwarzenegger themed metal band by As I Lay Dying vocalist Tim Lambesis. It’s a hilariously cool project that Tim has been doing, and just hearing the Ahnuld impressions (especially the second album) have been great! But Tim needs funding for the next album and there’s all types of things for you to purchase on IndieGoGo: the new album, a workout session with Tim and this is a new one, you can even punch Tim in the stomach (within reason). If I had a lot of money, I’d pay for that one. Who wouldn’t pass up an opportunity to punch someone in the stomach!
As I Lay Dying vocalist Tim Lambesis has launched an Indiegogo.com campaign to crowdfund the third album by his Austrian Death Machine side project.
The official page can be found at http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/triple-brutal-austrian-death-machine-a-makes-new-record-and-tour.
Unique perks being offered are:
– Personal training sessions with Lambesis
– Never before seen ADM T-shirt designs
– The chance to punch Lambesis in the stomach…within reason
Says Lambesis: “Crowdfunding is a direct connection to fans and a way to offer unique things such as getting your name tattooed on my butt. If I raise more money than I need to do a quality recording, then I promise to do an Austrian Death Machine tour. I want us all to unite in the name of the pump.”
Indiegogo.com has been used by artists as varied as OneRepublic, Protest The Hero, Conditions and George Clinton, and it’s fast becoming the go-to website for musicians wanting to raise funds for any number of projects. Indiegogo.com is an open platform and therefore does not curate which artists can launch projects. It also offers flexible funding so artists can opt to keep the funds they raise even if they don’t hit their goal.
