Dirtfedd Launch $22,000 Kickstarter Campaign For New EP
Dirtfedd, who recently scored an opening slot on this years “Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival“, are attempting to raise $22,000 dollars to record their new six song EP.
Slipknot percussionist M. Shawn Crahan has agreed to produce the outing, which will apparently be recorded in some grand Dethklok-fashion given that budget. Those interested in donating can do so at Kickstarter.
According to the band:
“We are Dirtfedd, a heavy metal/rock n roll band from Lincoln, Nebraska. Dirtfedd was formed in April of 2002, so next month we’ll be celebrating 10 years together. Dirtfedd is a brotherhood made up of 6 friends that absolutely REFUSE to give up on this band or each other.
Being from the midwest, a very strong work ethic is instilled in each member of the band. We’ve learned over the last 10 years that nothing worthwhile is simply handed to you. Hard work, determination, and patience are essential, especially in the rock music world.
We have come to Kickstarter to ask for your assistance in the recording of our 6-song EP which will be produced by M. Shawn Crahan aka clown of Slipknot.
Time is of the essence for this project, because we recently received some exciting and monumental news. Dirtfedd has been chosen to play on this summer’s entire Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival 2012 beginning on June 28th in San Bernardino CA ending August 5th. The main acts on this festival include headliner Slipknot, Slayer, Motorhead, Anthrax, As I Lay Dying, and many many more great acts on several stages.
The goal is to have a 6-song EP recorded, mixed, mastered, and available for purchase before the Mayhem Festival begins also there will be live tracks included along with a remix of each song. We are very loyal people, and are forever grateful to anyone that has helped us out along the way.
Hopefully you can sense how important all of this is to us, and offer your support in any way possible. We want you to know that after each band performance on Mayhem we will be signing with M. Shawn Crahan at the Sopra Evil Tent. Make sure you come and say hello so we can thank you personally, We look forward to meeting all of you.
