A request for some help... Portland-based band The Slants, who have been rocking faces for years with their special brand of Chinatown Dance Rock, is in serious need of a new touring bus. So they're turning to Kickstarter -- and you -- for assistance: New Tour Bus for The Slants.
The band is looking at releasing a brand new album and launching another multi-national tour, but their current ride isn't cutting it. They've put over 200,000 miles of travel and played 350+ shows in four years and are now hoping to get something more reliable, safer, and able to handle their travels:
Here are some more details:
If we raise $10,000:Help The Slants hit the road! The goal is to raise $10,000 by June 14. The money will definitely be put to good use -- one hundred percent will go towards purchasing the tour van. For further information, and to make a pledge, go to the Kickstarter campaign here. For more on The Slants and their music, check out the band's website here.
We'll be able to purchase an older shuttle bus and renovate it for the tour. This would mean that we wouldn't need to tour with a trailer anymore, be much safer on the road, break down less often, and have a little more space on our house on wheels.
Money raised above the goal would allow us to invest some of our money to our stage show: lighting, special effects, etc. to make each tour experience even more special. The priority is obtaining a safe vehicle and creating an even better experience for fans on the road.
