Electronic Dance Music pioneers Lords of Acid have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their upcoming, to-be independently released album, Pretty In Kink. Originally conceived by die-hard fan Rocco Corsari, the driving force behind the Lords of Acid Backstage Group, the fundraising campaign places ‘ownership’ of the release with fans rather than a label.
“We’ve always had an amazing relationship with our fans. Thanks to our fans, we’ve been able to do so many outrageous things we never expected to do. They made all of this possible. Our Kickstarter campaign allows us to take this one step further. Our fans will help us to create, fund and promote the new Lords of Acid album. I cannoit wait to make Lords of Acid history with our fans!” – Praga Khan
Fans have always been at the forefront of LOA’s success, and the current fundraising campaign and album reflect the band’s appreciation for the more than two decades of support. Not only was the crowdfunding initiated by a fan, but the name of the album, as well as the rewards, were selected by their broad, international fan-base.
The initial goal of $32,000, which has already been realized, will cover everything involving the album release, however they have several stretch goals which will be tied to additional bonuses. Fans can make donations to receive rewards (below) and do additional ‘add-ons’ to personalize their reward packages. The campaign runs through January 7, 2017, and cards will not be charged until the project reaches the funding deadline.
