First of all, I just want to start by saying a HUGE “thank you” to everyone who supported, participated and spread the word about our first PledgeMusic campaign. What a blast we had making LUNCH. DRUNK. LOVE. with you guys. It was a lot of work and there were some speed bumps along the way. But that said, we learned SO much about this new and AMAZING revamp of the music industry known as “fan funding.” You guys are the label now! And bands depend on you more than ever. The fact that bands like us know this, is what makes it so special for the fans! You get more inside access and information than ever!!! We think we have any bugs worked out with fulfillment, shipping, and overall timely delivery of a new album project and the exclusives you choose to go with your pledge!
If you are new to the whole PLEDGEMUSIC thing…Read on! I think you will be stoked with what you are about to read!!!
Welcome to the 2nd PledgeMusic campaign for Bowling For Soup. For those of you that do not know, our “little band” turns 20 on June 4, 2014. You heard me. 20 YEARS OLD! We have always dreamed of doing a full on BEST OF BFS project and we feel like this is the time.
A few years ago, we got dropped from our major label. Less than a few weeks after this happened, “The Man” released a BFS GREATEST HITS on their own. They did not consult us OR the fans on song selection, art work…Nothing! In fact, we didn’t even know the album existed until months later.
So we have decided it is time for us to do it right! We started by making a list of any and all singles, obvious fan favorites, and songs that set Bowling For Soup apart from the rest. The list was HUGE!
Especially since this project will include us RE-RECORDING the songs.
Note: We are not REDOING the songs. No rearranging. No lyric changes. But we started recording 20 years ago! We really wanted a chance to bring our older material to life with better recordings (not to mention the fact that we sorta know how to play our instruments now)!
So, we have decided to take on the first 10 years of our career….
Bowling For Soup: Songs People Actually Liked – Volume 1 – The First 10 Years (1994-2003)
We will release a track listing as we go. As of now, the album is 17 classic BFS songs from the first 10 years of our band re-recorded to bring them the glory we think they deserve and 1 brand new original song!
Ok, ok…You know about the album, but now you are asking, “What’s in it for me?!?!”
By pledging, you’ll get the album the second it’s done. Along the way, you’ll be able to access exclusive updates as we record the songs. It will be almost like you are there!
Just $10 gets you a download of the new album as soon as it is done plus the exclusive updates!!
Just $15 gets you that download, plus the new album on cd, PLUS a download of the album commentary!
Have a look to the right -- and see all the other stuff we’ve listed that can be yours. There is everything from pieces of BFS history, to exclusive T-shirts and posters, BFS cooking lessons, and even a round of golf with the band!
Remember, you only HAVE to pledge for the $10 download to get the Exclusive content…And believe me, there will be a LOT!
And the REALLY cool thing about PledgeMusic, is if you decide you want to add something else later, you can!!!
We will again be donating 5% of pledges to Sweet Relief – an organization that provides financial assistance to all types of career musicians who are struggling to make ends meet while facing illness, disability, or age-related problems. In other words, Healing Musicians in Need.
That’s about it! Thank you all SO MUCH for supporting Bowling for Soup…Whether you are a new fan or one that has been with us the whole time, we couldn’t do this without you…And trust me…We know it!!
We love you!
