What a great time to be a musician!

For anyone who doesn’t know, Five Iron Frenzy is getting back together and making an album! I am excited for lots of reasons, but one of the major reasons is how they did it!

They launched a website, and asked their fans to pay for their studio time by offering various prizes for paying certain amounts... Their goal was 30,000, and hoped to reach it in 60 days.

They reached their goal in 55 minutes... *jaw drop

In less than a week they raised 150,000 dollars! *pissed myself

Relevant magazine interviewed Reese Roper (the lead singer) and he made several references to not being under a label with this album, and how being under a label isn’t necessary. You can read the article by clicking here

This is such wonderful news! The middle man is losing his grasp on the music industry, and the artists are beginning to thrive!
What a great time to be a musician! Unless of course you are a hack, people will see right through that...
