Here’s a textbook definition of “successful crowdfunding”: Devin Townsend’s campaign for Casualties of Cool got started last Friday and made some good first day progress. By good, we mean amazing, and by progress, we mean it reached 249% of its goal in the first day alone. Currently, it’s sitting at 275%, and the campaign has about three more months to go, so we’re looking at even more funds coming in until then. Obviously, since there’s going to be some extra money, Townsend has said he’ll be putting the funds towards a) Ziltoid 2 and b) animal shelters, which is awesome. In addition, as a thank you for the tremendous success, he’s posted a new song, “Forgive Me”, which you can enjoy in the video above. If you’re interested, you can still contribute here.
