Give Conveyor a Kickstart

25 Feb

We love Conveyor, you know that already, and as well as making great music, they are really good people as well. So, with a clear conscience and a warm fuzzy feeling in our collective heart, we would like to draw your attention to their latest project; a Kickstarter campaign to help fund a US tour this year. Or, as they have called it, Tourveyor (clever, like it).

The band are hoping to raise $6,000 to help them buy a bus in which they can drive around the US and play lovely gigs to lovely people. You may wonder why we, a UK based site, are promoting this US based campaign. Well, there are three reasons really.

1. We really dig Conveyor and would love to see them break out big style.
2. Getting donations from fans for this tour will help them to continue to make their music available for free.
3. We figure once this tour is over, it’s only a matter of time before they buy a plane and fly over here as well.

Ok, there is a fourth reason too, the goodies they are offering in return for donations are pretty darn sweet.
We mulled it over and, as tempting as it was to pay $500 to have them write a song about anything we wanted, we instead went for the vinyl package (shocker there).

Check out their page and see if there is anything that takes your fancy, and if you need reminding of how brilliant a band they are, here is their fabulous Sun Ray EP to stream and enjoy.

    a bus eh? torn between wanting this bus to be an old London Route-master and the Mystery Machine.
    This fund raising is a good idea, people do it when making Indie films (independent films. obv. not the Indiana Jones franchise)
