The Presidents Of The United States Of America: raising funds for vinyl release of self-titled debut album

Energetic rock trio The Presidents of the United States of America are no longer a working band, but they won't miss the opportunity to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their self-titled album. They have launches a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for a long overdue vinyl release (fact check: it was released on vinyl in Europe 1995 and by a label in Spain as well). Their home market had to make due with CD's and cassettes.

We are post-rock-band. While we remain friends and enjoy frequent lunches together, we have no label, no management, no infrastructure, no "team". That's OK though! We don't need any of that stuff!*** Thanks to INTERNET and whatnot the music is out there for anyone who wants to hear it (that's my vague understanding of INTERNET.)

And (this is important) we own most of our music, including this album! So involving a label again is kind of the opposite of what we want moving forward. Kickstarter gives us the chance to bring this directly to you, and (also important) figure out how many of you are interested in having one of these hot slabs of wax!

  1. So do those who donate recieve a copy of the vinyl album when/if pressed or do they get the privalge of basicly paying for it twice if they want to own a copy?
