Imagine how difficult it is for a band to tour for over a month in a cramped van that constantly breaks down. Now imagine if that band was a group of mutants from Creepsylvania. We for one wouldn’t want to be riding in that van, especially when it breaks down.
That’s why the band Ghoul have launched a Kickstarter project to seek help in buying a new van for their upcoming tour with GWAR. The members of Ghoul gave the following plea on their Kickstarter page:
“Help Ghoul buy a van! Being mutants from a far-away country who barely know how to read and write, and who have limited access to non-pickled-cabbage-related currency, we have a lot of trouble finding transportation in your country. The last tour we did we ended up lashing ourselves to the roof of the headliner’s merch truck every night after the show. Not only did they not appreciate the extra gas money we cost them, but we all ended up getting sick with the flu and Dissector was hit in the face by a passing pigeon not once, but twice. Now YOU, the noble and courageous Numbskull, have a chance to help US, the poor, benighted cannibals of Ghoul, by donating to our Kickstarter campaign. Not only will this help the band in the short term, it will allow us to tour more often and bring our message of brotherly love and peace…no wait, I got that wrong…our message of DEATH AND HORROR to you kind, generous, and physically attractive Ghoul fans. Donate now and get some junk!”
At the moment, Ghoul have $2,163 of their $5,000 goal. You can find out more about each pledge, which range from $1 to $500 with various special gifts, via the Kickstarter page. You have until March 5 (4:52pm EST exactly) to make a pledge and help Ghoul reach their goal.
Creepsylvanian or not, every band struggles to keep themselves on the road. And now, Ghoul can really use your help to ensure that they can play on GWAR’s Return Of The Maggots tour (which features Municipal Waste and Kylesa on different legs). If that wasn’t enough to convince you, then check out the hilarious video promo they made for the Kickstarter campaign after the jump.
