    Rogue Records America will be releasing the first Project Rogue album in the fall of 2014 on digital, digipak CD, limited edition vinyl and even a DVD with studio interviews and more.

    "Raymond and I were talking one night, just throwing ideas around for the label... kinda like we always do," said Dean Martinetti, the owner of Rogue Records America. "He says to me, 'Do you know what would be great? If we got a bunch of people we know and that I've worked with together and made a record for the label, and better yet... made it a crowd-funded campaign to get the fans involved.' I couldn't agree more."

    Martinetti added: "We want the fans to be as connected as they can be on this project, we really want them to be just as excited about this as we are and to connect even closer to the artists they love so much. Besides the mobile app we are thinking of YouTube streams, location visits for fans, etc. Every artist that has come on board has done so because they want to have that connection with their fan base."

    Fuck everything about this. The whole idea of collecting $70,000 from braindead fans for a project with no goal is the exact reason why I hate these campaigns.

    Oh come on. You're not pumped at the prospect of yet another supergroup project that will, in all likelyhood, not deliver? I'm SHOCKED. hahaha. I feel you though, despite my vague interest.

    I don't understand how it affects you...let brain-dead fans be brain-dead.

    Who cares if bands need crowdfunding to pump out new material? If we weren't so lucky as to be able to download a good 99% of the music we want at the click of a mouse at no cost to us, it likely wouldn't have come to this.

    Like LeKiwi said - it's not like this is in any way personally affecting you. It's for fans who want the band to be able to release an album. If you're not a fan, like me, then you just quietly move on and wait for others to donate.

    There's an article that I can't seem to find that sums up my issues with crowd funding (as well as other issues in music) very well, if I find it, I'll post it. It's a good read.

    You mean that expands on your issues? An article implies that it's going to be a lot longer than you summing it up in the form of a comment.

    Isn't crowdfunding just paying for the album(?) anyway, only in advance? Not seeing the issue here. Maybe Willy's trying to imitate a broken record again.

    There are worse ways to spend your money, and even if there were not, it'd still be none of my business. Plus people usually get rewarded in some way or another. As Lit said, it's just putting the money up front.

    I'm not a fan of bands doing crowdfunding, but I guess bands see it as an opportunity to do things the safe/effortless way.

    But if it helps bands getting money from brain-dead downloaders that otherwise wouldn't give them a penny, fine for me.
