Rock/Hiphop ATLiens Almost Kings have created a very unique way to involve their fans in the process of recording their new album. With new perks added every week, Almost Kings have launched a completely fan focused indiegogo campaign that will offer band historical items as well as opportunities to be directly involved with the making of the album and the production of their signature live shows.
The featured perk this week is “Tech For A Day” which gives one lucky fan the opportunity to shadow an AK tech at soundcheck and pre-show. Not only does this perk include a side stage seat at the show, recipients also get a digital download of the new album. Additional perks include pre-show cookouts with the band, tickets to an Almost Kings VIP listening party in Atlanta before the album’s release, a “golden ticket” which is a guest list for LIFE, exclusive skateboard decks, contributor only limited edition t-shirts, handwritten lyrics of your choice to you from Boze, and also historical items that will be used in the making of the album such as drum heads, drum sticks, guitar picks, and guitars – the band will even include a document describing the item’s authenticity and how it was used on the album.
