Help us get a new vehicle and get rewarded here!
Hello everyone, STT here once again with vehicle trouble. We have decided it is indeed time to get a new band vehicle. We purchased our shuttle bus on Nov 11 several years ago, ready and willing to tour. We got it off of another band, Cyanide Sunrise, and we're thrilled with having bunks in the back, a kitchen table, room to store our gear and merch, etc. Over the past few years we have discovered there is one slight problem.
It is from 1995. Ben was 5 years old when this thing was built. Think about that for a second. Like, woah.
This 22 year old vehicle has gotten us through 4 tours and many awesome memories were had on the road. We were thrilled with being able to actually own a vehicle rather than leasing or renting one like many other bands do (which is very, very, understandable). But the issues just keep on coming. The module in charge of everything electronic on the bus needed replacing, twice. The brakes were not good from day one and also needed a major overhaul. In the beginning, Algae was growing in our fuel tank. Our latest repair a month ago cost $1,000, which we are able to pay for thanks to so many of you who rose to the occasion in 24 hours, which STILL has us blown away. We are asking one FINAL time with this vehicle for you to rise to said occasion once more.
You see, now she shuts off if we throw her in reverse. Eww. She's at the shop right now and we are simply ready to move on.
Anyone who contributes to this campaign will get a free digital download of our latest single "Me, Myself, And Monster" for free in less than 24 hours. We will also be writing personal thank you letters to every single one of you who help us out. And we'll come up with more. We are racking our brains right now, thinking of ways to say thank you.
Goodbye Aphrotite (named sort of after the goddess of love, Aphrodite, but changed slightly at the suggestion of Ben, because "It's tight as shit on there".
