We feel quite uncomfortable writing this post but it seems like we’ve got no choice. You know, for young bands, making music costs lots of money. We mostly spend, even the money we earn. To make qualitative music, videos, and, especially, tour, thousands of dollars are needed. We’ve got pretty tough plans for 2018:
🔥 Release at least 2 songs with 2 impressive videos (the first video will be already shot on Feb 22nd and we’re crazy about that plot, believe us)
🔥 Promote those songs and videos
🔥 Tour in EU, hopefully twice
🔥 Start working on the new album (which is, in fact, partly happening right now)
Needless to say, the wages in our country, Ukraine, are far beyond the expenses we’re going to face. Naturally, we’ve been saving each and every dollar, and are boundlessly grateful for all those of you who are buying our music and merch.
We’d probably launch a Kickstarter campaign if we were in EU or USA. But it’s almost impossible to do it here, in Ukraine. We'd probably leave you our PayPal address for donations, but it doesn't work here, in Ukraine, again.
Thereby, if you want to simply donate anything for the development of our band, please send ETH or BTC to the corresponding addresses:
ETH: 0x2fCF2689db7B55ffd19C4DCD7A477e67D47c7168 (btw, this address is ERC20 compatible, so you can use it for tokens as well)
We know that lots of people can have a various attitude towards cryptocurrencies. And yet, this is literally the only way for us to accept donations from our listeners worldwide.
We’ve also added a new option on our website which is called IGNEA Surprise Stuff (https://ignea.band/shop). If you purchase this one, we will send you setlists, Helle's poems written by hand, guitar picks, drums sticks, old strings used on bass on recordings, the stuff used in the videos, etc. If you have something particular in mind, mail us to email@example.com, and we will do our best to fulfil your igneous wishes.
All that we can promise you in return is that we will work extremely hard to deliver such music and videos that you won’t regret a single penny donated to us. And we’ll be glad to hug each and every one of you when we finally reach you on tour.
Guys and a girl of IGNEA
