Thanks to the amazing fans, friends, and family of WEINLAND we have achieved our Kickstarter goal and are now in a position to positively take over the world. Or should I say, in slightly more realistic wording, release our music in whatever way we see fit!
Your generosity helped us pre-sell over $13,000.00 worth of units!
What now? Now we make plans for release. We’re discussing a few offers and arrangements with record labels.. but mostly we’re looking for the best way. Thanks to you we don’t have to compromise and can maintain the ownership of our music no matter what. We hope to announce our plans for release by the end of July. As soon as we announce our plans we’ll start leaking more songs and what not. Don’t forget you can always get our first single, LOS PROCESSAUR, for free right here: Los Download
Also, we’re getting ready to announce a few limited tour dates in July! Our fingers are crossed that we will find ourselves near you.
This song is so new that the album it will first appear on isn’t even done yet!
The song is called Los Processaur and plans for the album release will be announced sometime later this spring.
When you’re done, please share the link on your facebook or twitter to help spread the word!
WEINLAND is running a fundraising campaign to cover the costs associated with making our new record. We’ve got to pay off some old studio bills, some new studio bills just racked up, and a few future bills coming! Please check out our Kickstarter campaign and consider supporting this project in one way or another. All donations $10 and up are rewarded with at minimum an advanced copy of our new record when it comes out!
Here’s an excerpt from our project page:
The Portland, Oregon quintet WEINLAND is making a new record. We need your help! Obviously money has been in short supply over the last few years and with less and less people purchasing music, more and more bands are turning to the generosity and support of their fans to support their artistic endeavors. Us too!
WEINLAND is currently in an amazing position of artistic freedom and excitement. Between labels and looking for love in all the wrong places! We have new songs written, we’ve started recording them, and the momentum is building (recent features on NPR and MTV ain’t no joke!). We’re asking you to join the team …read more!
Thanks again to everyone who came out for WEINLAND’s New Years Eve Supergroup. It was a super rad night by all accounts. You can watch loads of video from the night on our facebook page. Click here to view and, if you haven’t already, “like” the page to make sure are in the loop.
A special thanks to all of the amazing Portland artists who jumped on stage to sing a song, shred a guitar, etc. These are the folks who made the night amazing!
We’re packing up and heading out! We’ve even got roadies this time!!
