Iris Divine Launches Kickstarter Campaign For New Album "Karma Sown"

IRIS DIVINEGreat news! One of our featured bands (and one of my local favorites), Iris Divine, has officially launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their brand new album Karma Sown!

A lot of us around here have been waiting to hear some new stuff from these guys, having tons of fond memories of past shows. They've proved their mastery of unique prog rock. Now all that remains is to pool together some resources from fellow metal appreciators like yourself to help make a full length album a reality.

Remember... every band, big or small, local or international, has it pretty fucking rough right now. Those of us who make real music with actual thought beyond what kind of profit it will pull are being stepped on by big-budget labels and pop producers like small businesses everywhere are being done in by Wal-Mart. Everything is tipped in favor of who has the most money, and those people like to keep that money amongst themselves. People who work their asses off at a big chain store get shit for pay while their bosses sit upstairs and laugh at their underlings while smoking Cubans, and people who have a talent for music are being told to make their material on their own time, with their own expensive equipment paid for out of their own pockets, just to have it redistributed for free.

This is one of the best ways to stick it to the fucking man. Tell your top 10 station that they can go suck themselves off, and give your money directly to the people who made your new favorite song/album to ensure that good music gets made by the right kind of people. Then sit back and enjoy the spoils, you lucky bastard!

If you need extra convincing, check this out to learn a bit more about why so many of us are so damn excited to see what they come up with!

Good luck to you guys! We can't wait!
