We’ve already known that Chimaira successfully funded their Indiegogo campaign. They’re now up to $45,261 with 10 days left, which is more than the $30,000 they were originally seeking. The band aren’t planning on doing anything extravagant with the extra funds, like hiring a hit man. Instead, they say they’ll use the money for production, more videos, and increased touring, to places they haven’t been before. And while you’ve already gotten to hear a song from Crown of Phantoms, the band have issued an update that features another minute or so of another song. Check it out at about 1:40 in the above video. Here’s what the band had to say:
“A huge thank you to all Chimaira fans for helping us surpass our goal in such a short amount of time. We’re truly humbled and will be delivering the greatest content possible to all of you. We’ve now added a few more perks that involve Performing On-Stage, Submitting Video Content For Our YouTube, and Signed Drum Heads / Sticks.
“The additional funds raised beyond our goal will be put toward allowing us to tour extensively during this album cycle as well as the creation of additional quality media content. Please continue to spread the word and thank you all so much!”
Crown of Phantoms will be out on July 30 on eOne.
