Black Crown Initiate are in need of a new van, and they’re asking their fans for help. With a recently launched IndieGogo campaign, the band is looking to raise $25,000 to replace their current van, nicknamed “Captain Planet” because it has no catalytic converter, and has broken down a few times, leaving the band stranded and missing shows.

“We need $25,000 to pay in full for a newer and safer 15 passenger van. Our band literally lives inside this van for tours that last up to 6 weeks and have lead us through some dangerous parts of the country.

We’ve come up with some unique and exciting perks to offer in exchange for your support. We want to do as much as possible to show our appreciation to our funders, so some of our perks are more of a once in a lifetime opportunity!

If we don’t meet our $25,000 goal, you will still receive your awesome perks and your generous contributions still go towards a down payment on a better van that isn’t a tin can driving through the Rockies.”

The band will be on the road later this month with Crowbar and Unearth, and then the “Through Space and Grind” tour with Napalm Death and Voivod early next year.
