AMANDA'S NEW ALBUM FINANCED BY CROWDFUNDING
"i think Kickstarter and other crowdfunding platforms like this are the BEST way to put out music right now - no label, no rules, no fuss, no muss. just us, the music, and the art."by Amanda Fucking Palmer
after controversies with Roadrunner Records Amanda Palmer resigned from her major label and instead turned to her fans, new-age patrons, who finance and support her latest album with The Grand Theft Orchestra.
in september is coming out maybe the biggest Amanda's project until now or to put it in her own words: "we made what I believe is my best fucking album to date. it sounds...BEYOND EPIC."
she started a crowdfunding project on Kickstarter and pledged for 100.000 USD and received 1.2 MILLION $!! depending on how much you donate, you can get from a digital download of the new album to a crazy private party with Amanda and the band. you can meet with Amanda in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London… and BERLIN!
