Gwydion - Launch Crowdfunding Campaign For New Album

Three years ago, Gwydion went on an indefinite hiatus. But hope rose earlier this year, when the band announced they would tour again. They are now preparing a new album, expected in July 2018. In order to help financing the recording of this album, a crowdfunding campaign has been launched last week with a fixed goal of 2,500. It has long been known by the fans that Gwydion struggle with money, and this is a chance for those who care for their music to support the project. The campaign started here on Indiegogo on November 28th and it will last for 2 months.

Here is what the band had to say about it: "We are inviting you to support Gwydion and help us finalize our new album! As you know, Gwydion exists since 1995 and the music-industry has changed a lot along these years. But we have always kept our heads held high and moved on with your enduring support!

"We can tell you that our new album is ready to be forged! Yes, we have a full set of new epic folk metal songs for you guys but we need to record them and do all the stuff that evolves a professional CD launch. We want our fans to experience our work in the way they deserve to listen, with quality!

"BUT... we DO need your help: You will understand that recording, mixing and mastering, promotion is a considerable amount of money. As well as making new band pictures, hiring a graphic designer for the new cover-artwork, shooting a video... and lots of other things we want to be on the album, so it can be better and better.

"For this steps, we would like to ask your help. We need funds for the mixing, mastering, artwork,pressing of the CDs, promotion and a new website. Below we are offering the new CD as a pre-order and various other pledges which all can be considered as a 'long distance pre-sale' for the new CD. All your money will be used for the final steps of releasing this CD. The CD has a release date towards the middle of July 2018 and all of you who invest in a pledge-package will receive the new album before the release-date... plus the extras of your choice.

"The Gwydion fans have always overwhelmed us with your support and have always motivated us to keep making music and providing kick-ass shows! Stick with us for this album and join us on this journey! We cannot reveal too much yet about the album, but we can say this: Fans will get a new epic folk metal album! It will sound like Gwydion, we definitely promise you that!"

Nice to see them alive
Destroy all dreams, illusion damned in fire... A hellish need for power, it's my dark desire...
