Dear glamorous friends and beloved ones,

I am Chris Corner. This is my solo project IAMX.
We, me and you, hand in hand, mouth to mouth, intertwined for the survival of art and for the future of meaningful music, are creating history together.

I am already deep in the ocean of the fifth IAMX album. And I know it must become as explosive as my imagination imagines it and as touching as you need it to be. I want it to move you and fuck you and to dictate the psychology of your offspring.
I will reveal its title to you pledgers during this campaign.

Many of you have been asking how you can get involved in supporting IAMX, that is why I am here at PledgeMusic. You can give, I can create and also offer you ridiculously exclusive items and experiences that are available only here and now.
Take a look at the menu and choose what you desire. (If you are new to PledgeMusic, you can read more about how it works at the bottom of this page).

For years I have produced the IAMX records myself from scratch, alone, the solitary studio soldier. But I am going around in circles, eating myself away from the inside out. This is not good. 
Therefore I have chosen to invite others in to help me. This costs money but I feel it will create a more powerful product.

The incredible Grammy award winning über producer Jim Abbiss has already committed his master mind and focus on the album.
You can expect a new kind of IAMX sound, full of acoustic warmth, electronic sex and an emotional strength that can only come from collaboration.

The album release will be accompanied by a professional ‘Making Of’ documentary.
The documentary will give you a first time ever insight into how and why I obsessively slave over my music and will also show the dirty details of IAMX life in the studio and on the road. Planned to be created by renowned US indie documentary and music video maker Danny Drysdale (Killers, Cursive, Compact Space, Crispin Glover).

To make this possible in the indie universe I ask for your help.
Your pledge will support IAMX in doing the following:

-completing the album, i.e. finalising the recording and production, creating wonderful artwork and manufacturing CD, DVD and vinyl.
-promotion and distribution of a world wide release (this will include photo shoots, music videos, remixes, press and radio promotion)
-extensive tour throughout Europe and the long awaited US tour (the number of North American cities included in the tour will depend on the amount of money we raise).

As a grand finale, I introduce to you ‘pledge head’. He will guide us through this untested process and ease our minds if it all goes tits up and we are left in debt, naked with nothing but our eternal love for each other.

Love, Chris


How Pledge works:
The minimum pledge amount is 10€. For this, every pledger gets an mp3 download of the new IAMX album and exclusive updates for pledgers only (news, pics and videos). For example, pledgers will be the first to know the album name and song list.
If you buy any other product, you will always get the download + updates with it (without paying the extra 10€ for it).
We have set a minimum target amount that we think is needed to make this release a success.
After 100% of our target is reached, the money paid for the items will be withdrawn from your account. If we do not reach our target, you will not be charged and not receive the items.
5% of any money we raise after reaching 100% of our target will be donated to The Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science (RDFRS).
Shipping is included in all prices, unless: a “+” means 2-3€ shipping will be added if you live outside Germany.
If you have any questions, please leave a comment.

5% post goal
5% of any money raised after the goal is reached will go to Richard Dawkins Fdn for Reason & Science.
