The best high school house party of all time disguised as an experimental rock band, Helms Alee is trying to Kickstart funds so they can record, package and self-release their third album, Sleepwalking Sailors. But the ladies and dude are coming at it from a different angle — they’re selling you the pre-sale of their third album, which simply hasn’t been recorded yet.
Having already Kickstarted their brilliantly ludicrous “8/16” music video, the power trio is looking to hit their goal of $5,000 and they’re a mere… oh, they actually hit it. In fact, they’re almost 900 bucks over the goal already. So why the fuck are they asking for more money? Well, here’s Guitarsmith/Vocalician Ben Verellen:
Originally, we didn’t want to shoot for an outrageous amount of money and we knew we could get creative to record and press our new record for $5000. But realizing that “creative” might mean my crappy handwriting on a manila envelope for packaging, we’re hoping to pre-sell more copies. Turns out scratch and sniff is expensive!
There are only a few days left to drop 30 bucks and get a record that should be done and ready for your milky soft hands by November (along with digital download), and extra cash gets you more and more goodies. I wish I could vouch for the music itself, but the Kickstarter video above should show you how serious they are about dominating your every orifice; and if the album sucks, I’ll tell you where they live.
