Capture The Crown Hoping To Crowdfund New EP Following Departure From Sumerian Records

Capture The Crown are looking to crowdfund their next release after having recently been dropped by Sumerian Records. The band aim to raise $10,000 USD for the release of an already recorded new EP titled “All Hype All Night“. The campaign itself can be found over at Indiegogo with the group stating:

“We are CAPTURE THE CROWN, and this is our IndieGoGo. We need you to help retrieve the rights to our EP, manufacture our EP, release the EP and help us get back on the road, touring full time! It’s time to give you guys a bigger, better and louder CAPTURE THE CROWN and of course NEW MUSIC!! Capture The Crown has toured over the world and played countless shows but nothing will be as EXCITING as finally releasing our new EP to you, the fans!

We love our fans! Everything we do is because of you, the fans. That’s the beauty of you the fans: your loyalty, contribution, sacrifice and positivity. We couldn’t be happier having you on this journey with us. In saying that, sometimes there are some speed bumps on the road; in this situation we need your help to get through this one. We recorded our EP back in April of this year. We experimented and wrote this EP for you guys.

We listened to what you guys wanted and we tried our best to give you that in five very different songs. The issue we encountered with this EP was it lacked a promised deadline, sort of like our debut album, which took three years to release. We were supposed to release this EP twice, before two different tours. Once in the middle of the year and another in September.

Then the real shit storm hit, our RV died in the middle of the Scream It Like You Mean It tour and our label told us they would no longer release our music. There was nothing more we could do, we had to drop off the tour and fly to our respective homes. Fortunately there is an upside to this, we are now in control of what we give to our fans. You guys are always there no matter what, we wrote this EP for you!!

Thank you so much for your endless dedication and support, we will not roll over, we will not die, we will not go away. This is just the beginning of a bigger, better and louder CAPTURE THE CROWN!!”

          That’s not what I’m getting at. This band is nothing. It does not have the fanbase to warrant a physical distribution of an EP that has already been recorded. Release it digitally. They’re just trying to ensure that they get some money back from this already recorded product that no one is obviously missing.

          Also, getting on the road? What the fuck? Get that shit outta here. With the crowdfunding of a record, at least you get THE RECORD minimum in return. You’re basically paying for the same show, if you see it, twice. No thanks.

          I’m assuming Sumerian Records has the rights to the unreleased EP and they need to purchase it from them. I could see Sumerian charging a lot for it too. That being said this band blows and they were a terrible 25 minutes at All-Stars this year. I was actually glad when Iwrestledabearonce took the stage after them.

    • This crowd funding shit is getting a little out of hand. How bout we wait till people actually know who the fuck you are before you start asking for money from them. Am I wrong? Homeless people on the sidewalk in NYC might as well start a crowd funding campaign.

        Hobo DeathGrind is gonna be fucking huge man. I already got them booked opening for Origin, Aborted, Exhumed, Jungle Rot, Cattle Decapitation, Nile and Gorguts tours. I just need $10,000 for travel expenses.
