PROTEST THE HERO Redefine "Do It Yourself" With Record Breaking Indiegogo Campaign!
When Canada's PROTEST THE HERO decided to go "Do It Yourself" (DIY) and raise the funds for their NEW record themselves via the crowd-funding website IndieGoGo, little did they know that would redefine DIY. The fundraising campaign reached its goal in less than 24 hours, and the campaign completion date still has 24 days to go.
The band recently fulfilled their contracts with record labels, which is why they turned to the crowd to fund their fourth full-length album. Within hours of launching, the band smashed through it’s $125,000 goal and is on its way to doubling that total (so far they have raised $227,470) — with the help of incredible, exclusive perks that have appeal to fans and haters alike!
The bands incentive: offering many 'perks' on the site that are only available during this time period and are exclusive to the campaign. They plan to go into the studio in March to record their fourth studio album. For information on the PROTEST THE HERO IndieGoGo project, go to www.Indiegogo.com/protestthehero.
Congrats to Protest The Hero and we hope many unsigned bands get inspired by this awesome DIY story!
