Megadeth Announce Crowdfunding Campaign for New Album
Megadeth are turning to fans to help get their 15th album off the ground — and offering a slew of extras to those who contribute more than their share.
Working with the music crowdfunding company PledgeMusic, the band is currently conducting a campaign that promises to take donors behind the scenes during the making of the album while offering tiered funding levels that include everything from signed CDs to a disposable camera full of shots from the studio or a private songwriting session with Dave Mustaine. The first update from the studio, which shows new drummer Chris Adler rehearsing a song, has already been posted.
"Megadeth has entered the studio to begin recording their 15th album and the band wants to bring you along for the ride," reads the campaign summary note. "For the first time, Megadeth is going to bring you into the process and give you a window into the world of Dave Mustaine, Kiko Loureiro, David Ellefson and Chris Adler. Pre-order the album digitally, on CD or on vinyl plus tons of other unique offerings like signed CDs, signed vinyl, gear from the studio and much more. No matter what you order, you will get access to a variety of behind-the-scenes content such as photos and videos from the writing and recording sessions. You’ll get full access to the process in real time."
