The group, which was found in 1999, has had its songs featured on Guitar Hero, Rock Band, and recently, the reboot to the Harmonix classic Amplitude, along with television series The L Word and PBS’ Arthur. The bandmates include Liz Enthusiasm, Sean T. Drinkwater, Marie Sagan, Robert John Foster, Kasson Crooker.
The band shared:
“We have been working on our fifth full-length album, and we’re turning to you folks to help bring it into the world (and of course you’ll get a lot of really cool rewards in return). We’re very excited about the music, and want to give this album a proper release. With past albums, we’ve done the being-signed-to-a-label thing, and we’ve also done the taking-on-massive-amounts-of-debt-to-release-it-ourselves thing. Neither of those options are really ideal, so this time around, we’re happy that we can work directly with our fans to make this project happen.”
“Not to burst your bubble or anything, but we’re not actually *that* famous. And that $3 check featured in our video? That’s real, and actually less than $3. We have day jobs and stuff. I’m not saying this to make you feel guilty because you listened to us on Spotify or whatever, just saying that this is how the music biz works now. Freezepop is a labor of love, and we do LOVE it. But we need your help too.”
Funds from the campaign will be used to create the album along with CD manufacturing and PR. Besides the album, other backer rewards range include t-shirts, posters, signed lyrics, and even dinner with the band. The album will be available as early as February 2017.
The campaign is set to close on May 26th.
