Hi There

 

I am a fan of the band Guardian and wanted to let everyone know that Guardian have a Kickstarter campaign running at the moment to try and fund their first album in over 10 years. There are some nice rewards for pledges from fans including signed copies of the new albums, tshirts, canvas prints, guitar lessons skype chats.

 

Please visit

to see if you might be able to help the band.

 

Many Thanks

Davison

I can understand why bands have to go this route in this day 'n' age but I have to wonder what happens if you donate towards the making of a record, and then (hypothetically) you think the resulting record sucks. Do you get a refund? :blink:

If I'm reading this right, the band wants to raise $30,000 to make this new record, but they only plan on pressing 1000 physical copies? Good grief. Are they planning to hire Mutt Lange to produce it or somethin'?

As much as i love this band, and as long as they dont do another Bottle Rocket, or Buzz, ill get the album. But im very skeptical about this process. Big part of me says if they cant afford it, too bad. Thats life. Do we have to pay all our bands from now on to record?

Yeah, that's dodgy as hell. Both good points about the album possibly sucking (just take a look at the last few albums they did actually record!) or more importantly if it does never get made. What does happen to that cash? I guess the local church?

 

Other thing is, maybe they wouldn't be in such a predicament if the last few albums were not so f*cking terrible.

 

CDs already cost more than enough money without having to start paying for the mofo's to actually be recorded...

cmon man, aren't you counting the budget they're going to spend for some high class escort that those Wall Street guys has been paying ? they need that to write some good hooks you know :D

i agree. I normally base my buying habits on what an album sounds like, not what it may sound like. CDs are too expensive to blind buy most of the time.

P.S. When you make a pledge, you will not be charged unless our funding goal is successful. There will be no "hold" for the amount on your card either. If we don't hit the goal, you will not be charged.

 

Our hope is that this will be lots of fun! Kickstarter rocks! We love you!

Well they did it! I check with 11 hours to go and they still needed over $10000, but they pulled it off. Now let's hope it was worth it.

Their buddies in Stryper posted Guardian's Kickstarter link on their Facebook page a couple of days ago, I'm sure that helped.

You're probably right about that. It'd be great if they toured together.

    • This one looks like a fun ride....  
    • I keep sticking with the band but my initial thoughts are that this is basically hookless. I sure hope this was just released as the first single cause it is loud and fast and isn't considered the best song on the upcoming album.
    • GENERATION LANDSLIDE (Cold Sweat / Lillian Axe members) – Ruling The Street Scene (2022) online sources · NOVEMBER 28, 2022     Comprising former members of both Cold Sweat and Lillian Axe, Las Vegas’ hard rockers GENERATION LANDSLIDE release their debut album ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Fronted by Anthony White, formerly of Cold Sweat and Cold Gin, GENERATION LANDSLIDE is a whirlwind of ’80s and early ’90s-influenced American-style melodic hard rock, complete with big hooks, singalong choruses and a feel-good vibe that continues throughout the entire ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Produced by White, the album kicks off with the ferocious ‘Little Miss Lonely’, then ‘Feel the Sensation’ follows with heavy gang vocals telling the story of finishing your day job and feeling the anticipation of going wild from seeing your favourite band in concert that night from a spiritual way. ‘Love and Pain’ relates the ups and downs in every relationship and the emptiness of being alone and ‘Are You Out There?’ is a tribute to the late Thin Lizzy bassist Phil Lynott. Highly Recommended   01 – Little Miss Lonely 02 – Feel the Sensation 03 – Nite Time Magic 04 – I’ll Keep Movin’ Along 05 – Love and Pain 06 – Are You out There 07 – Sweet Ellie May 08 – The City on the Edge of Forever 09 – Me in You 10 – Standing in the Rain Anthony White – lead vocals, lead guitar Sandy Stein – guitar Jonathon Swanson – bass Ken Koudelka – drums   BUY www.amazon.com/Ruling-Street-Scene-Generation-Landslide/dp/B0BFBV9HN2
    • Australia 1 Argentina 1 (Aus 5 Arg 4 on penalties) 🇦🇺 🪃 
    • USA 2, Netherlands 1. (*my prediction)
    • Sorry I meant Dance With the Dead        
    • As much as I love the Synthwave genre, I'm not very adventurous towards it. I generally allow the folks here to steer me in the right direction. I don't think I've listened to Dance of the Dead. 
    • I've been coming around. The cream of the crop are good. Issue I have is for every Lebrock or Midnight there are 20 shite artists. But yeah, I have been buying a bit of the best artists. For me, the best synthwave release of 2022 is Dance of the Dead. It is like the soundtrack to a John Carpenter film never made. It really rocks in places too.
