Allegaeon Launch Patreon Campaign To Avoid Having To Break Up


Allegaeon have launched this Patreon campaign to keep them out on the road and avoid having to call it quits. The band commented:

“Hey y’all. As many of you may have heard, Corey handed in his walking papers earlier this week. This was partly due to his desire to pursue a career in law, but largely because of the financial instability that comes with being in a touring band.

For some time now Allegaeon has been in a huge amount of debt and, with our new album cycle just beginning, we’ve had to begin assessing the costs of continuing to do what we do. We are looking at the very scary reality of Allegaeon‘s lifespan coming to an end.

Calling it quits is the last thing we want to do so, after much thought and contemplation, we have decided to launch a subscription based service through the Patreon platform. This is decidedly the best way for you, our fans, to be able to directly contribute to the well-being of Allegaeon and thus guarantee that we will be able to keep making music for a long time to come.

All of you have been incredibly supportive of everything Allegaeon has done leading up to this point and for that we are grateful beyond words; we couldn’t ask for a better group of people to call our fans. At this juncture, we need your support more than ever and are looking forward to working with each of you to make sure that your contribution to our success is rewarded in the best ways we can possibly offer.”

The band further explain their situation in the below video as well as on the Patreon page. As they put it:

“We want to make Allegaeon the center of our little musical universes, and to do that we need for it to be our full-time job. Just like any other full-time job, whether it be working at a gas station, at a tech-company, or as that one factory worker who dips the ends of dildos into paint to make them look super real (you da real MVPs), we need to see some sort of compensation for our work.

Ultimately, our goal is to meet the average U.S income of $51,939/yr. for each member, which totals to $21,637/mo. With 105k+ followers on Facebook alone, if a mere 4.77% of that audience donated a meager $5.00/mo. to Allegaeon, we would exceed that goal by about $3,405 per month, giving us more than enough left over to throw right back at you in the form of exclusive content, face-to-face hangouts, pizza deliveries, and so much more…”
