He is Legend released Heavy Fruit last August on Tragic Hero, their first new studio album in five years. By the time that album came out (it debuted at #119, selling 2,275 copies in its first week), it was revealed that the band was already at work on a follow up album, and now they’ve started a crowdfunding campaign to make that happen.
Said the band about the current situation,
“Without the support of a record label, a lot of bands cannot stay afloat. At first, we broke a sweat not knowing how we would go about writing and recording our next project. We knew in the back of our minds that asking you guys was an option, but perhaps pride was keeping us from taking that leap. After going over the numbers again and again, we have come to this. In the grand scheme of things, this is not an astronomical amount of money, and with your help we can make this happen. We think it is well worth it, considering what you guys get in return is a slamming new Legend record.”
He is Legend is looking to raise $56,000 for the new album, and have hit about $13,000 already in 15 hours.
