I just saw this too.  Normally I'd be all over this but I'm a little nervous about the lack of vocalist announcement.


...ok, after thinking about it for 30 seconds I pledged anyway.  It is Tourniquet after all and at the "early bird" price I'll risk it. Smile

I took the "VINYL - SUPER EARLY BIRD SPECIAL" reward.

Also:
"If this project is successfully funded, we will process your payment to Theodore Paul Kirkpatrick on:
Sun, Sep 18 2016 11:00 pm EDT"

Is that Ted's real name? I did not know that Shocked

Very Happy



EDIT:
I'd love to hear riffs with that guitar tone in the Kickstarter video.

I did that one too. 25 bucks for vinyl, CD and download was just too good to turn down.

I would like to hear more. Off of the last album, I dug about five songs.

What is the difference between the "SUPER CD EARLY BIRD SPECIAL" and the "GOTTA HAVE THE CD"?

5 dollars.



Sorry I couldn't help myself.  The "Super CD Early Bird Special" is limited to 75 backers.  So in effect, when 75 people have pledged for the cd at the $10 price, anyone else who wants a cd will have to pay the $15 amount.

Ha ha! Good one. That sounds like one of my responses.

I guess I didn't look at the amount of pledges. Makes sense.

Pretty much.

Although saving $5 is saving $5 when I know I will wind up getting it anyway.

Even though I haven't really dug any Tourniquet since the first 4 albums, I'll still support it based on those alone.  Since the value of those albums to me as a youth is incalculable.  I don't expect anything great out of this, but there's always hope.

The As the Story Grows podcast with Erik Mendez was heart-breaking because he said he, Victor, Guy, and Gary were all down to do a Tourniquet reunion tour in 2009ish but Ted didn't respond.  The world could have had greatness once again.  So sad.

Y'know, if they saved some of the profits from the last album, they would have enough to pay for the new one (kinda like Peter Jackson, et al, did making the Lord of the Rings films).  But, who likes to save money, right?

I pledged for the "cd early bird special".  There are still some available, and 4 people paid the full $15 to get the cd.  I also note that two people paid $20 for the cd and download...

Hope it gets funded, but I don't think I'll be kickstarting it. I'm a little nervous that it will be like Onward to Freedom which I didn't like at all. Loved Antiseptic Bloodbath though, so who knows?

Tourniquet is too "all over the map" for me to want to throw money towards a Kickstarter campaign.  Too much "meh" material for my tastes, they can't compete with other places in my life the money can go.  Just MY take on it......

if Ted grew his mullet back out, I would support this.

I've said it *countless* times: he needs to get Guy or Gary back.

this could be HUGE if he did.

Update from Ted regarding the new vocalist(s) for the new album:

Ted wrote:Hey everyone - I know most of you are wondering who the singer will be for the new Tourniquet album. Here's the best I have for you right now: The choice has been narrowed down to a very short list - all of whom are great vocalists. There will be awesome "singing" on the album, but 100% for sure - as there is on almost all Tourniquet albums - there will also be "screaming", "thrash vocals" - or whatever you want to call it. For me, some music just calls for a very aggressive delivery that only works with that style. I've said this before, but just because you stand up and yell into a mic doesn't mean you're any good at it (like if I would try to do it) much less that it sounds cool on an album. That being said, the "singer" and the "screamer" will likely be two different people, as you see in countless bands who effectively employ both types of vocals.
So - the vocals need to be "right" for THIS music, so that we can offer you the absolute best that we are able to. As a result, when the music is closer to completion will probably be when we are able to announce the vocalist(s).
Thank you to everyone who reserved a reward so far - not knowing just who will be doing the vocals. Your comments and messages like "Hey, it's Tourniquet - that's all I need to know." - are very encouraging. And for those who will "wait and see" until the vocalist(s) are announced - or even later - when the album is released - I fully understand and respect your choice.

I just kind of assumed that Aaron would be handling the aggressive vocals, but this makes me wonder.

Me, I look at the number of backers thus far and realize once again just how relatively SMALL the number of people actually interested classic Christian metal bands really is.  makes me think that there's not much room left for the old guard doing things in the "old" ways where it costs as much as a car to produce an album.  Kickstarter and gofundme type sites are the ONLY way those bands have a chance to keep putting music out there.....

I thought Gary was a devout atheist now, or did that change? I guess it wouldn't be the first time a non-Christian wanted to be in a Christian band

I agree. The Bride fundraisers fell flatter than a piece of paper.

If this one fails, Ted and TQT will have to try for smaller projects.

I think the number of funders is smaller because of people (myself included) who are waiting to hear some music before they jump on board. With an unknown vocalist, and a previous project that was dull (Antiseptic Bloodbath), this one is going to have to knock my socks off before I consider picking it up.

I just look back at the Beyond the Mountain fest debacle from a decade or so ago, and how many of us keep running into each other at the same Christian metal/rock communities, and am reminded that the circle is smaller than we think.


This Kickstarter is pretty much at the point that "wait to hear samples" means it's going to fail.  The deadline is only two weeks away, and Ted needs another hundred backers averaging $30 a pop.   If you're considering backing but waiting on samples, they might not be forthcoming.  It's worth thinking about throwing the cash down anyway.

Kickstarter can be a bit wonky, though.  Many folks, for some unknown reason, will pledge at the last minutes.  I know with the recent Rose fundraiser that it looked like it would fail even hours before the end of the campaign.  However, fans took notice and pulled him out.

One BIG thing that hurts Kickstarter programs now is the fact that everyone is doing it.  There are too many bands for the average Joe to support anymore.  Even some bands signed to labels are having to do it to raise funds to record.

Another thing is that when people find you are a Christian band, you automatically are considered non-relevant.  No one outside the Christian community is really taking notice unless you drop Jesus' name from your songs and make your lyrics a lot more palatable for a secular audience.  It isn't just hard rock and metal, either.

However, producing a professional quality album can be done a lot less expensively than artists want to realize.  Sure, you are going to have to invest in your own gear and learn to use it, but that is doable.  My new blues album was recorded on a band in the box Korg unit.  I then had it professionally mixed and mastered in Nashville.  Total cost:  $500.  First hundred CD:  $120 by going with an eco-sleeve.  No professional musicians were used.  It can be done on a shoestring if one so chooses to do so.

Yup.  I know guys in bands like The Burial, A Hill to Die Upon, Dagon, Still Remains......heavy, thrashy, multi-layered stuff, the final products sound absolutely HUGE......and I know for a fact those guys aren't spending that kind of cash.

That's neither here nor there, though.  Ted's set his budget (that no doubt includes costs associated with the Kickstarter incentives), and the campaign is well underway.  I hope it is successful for him.

I´m not backing this. TQT has lost a lot of it´s original creativity.

I buy the record if it is good. Anticeptic was not very good. I´m afraid they have lost their thing... sorry not "their".. it is Ted and someone.. so Ted has lost his thing.

Sorry to be critical. But sometimes one person can do it, sometimes there needs to be a band doing it. And in this case, Ted surely needs a band to do it with him.

A week ago I was starting to think that they might not reach their goal, but now that they need less than $900 over the next 11 days it looks like we'll be getting another Tourniquet album (and even more debates about their vocalists). No longer will fans be content to debate Guy vs. Luke; we must now fight over Guy vs. Luke vs. The New Guy. Or, based on Ted's recent comments, it might be Guy vs. Luke vs. New Guy #1 vs. New Guy #2.

Personally I hope the new album isn't a collection of vocalists like "Onward to Freedom." I'm fine with two vocalists (heavy vs. clean), but more than that and it starts to feel like a mish-mash of songs rather than a cohesive album.

They don't have any bad material anywhere in their catalog.  Hopefully, there's word on full length #4 shortly.....

I wouldn't have a problem with that. Ted would make it his own and it would be good. I'm one of those guys who loves Tourniquet just because it's Tourniquet.

I'd love the original Tourniquet to get back together... but then I'd also love Treasure Seeker to do the follow up they talked about... and C-Force to do another album... and...

Still, it's good to dream...

I didn't care for Onward to Freedom, but Blood Bath ending up growing on me ( and I REALLY love the production ). So I guess i'll wait to hear some samples and go from there when the new one comes out.

Have we actually heard Guy sing anything since Echo Hollow? I wonder how his voice is holding up?

I've ordered a signed CD and Download, as well. 
Would love to have a T-shirt also, but there wasn't such an option.

They're not really samples in the sense we usually think what samples are. That video has some audio clips of Ted's early composing process - very raw clips of him recording ideas and riffs on his phone.

They're very short, but sounds like some decent songs could be made out of them.

Yeah, it is right. It is more of a composition of rwaw riffs. Anyway, I got really excited about those songs. They might get pretty cool after the proper treatment.

If anyone needs encvouragement to back this project, or either to increase the pledge here it is:

STRETCH GOALS ADDED!!! We're thrilled and very grateful that because of all of you - we've reached our initial goal. But with one week left, we want to make the most of the valuable remaining time. So, we've set up a few "stretch goals":  
If we reach $18,000 - FREE STICKER of the album artwork for all pledgers.  
If we reach $22,000 - FREE TOURNIQUET LOGO SUNGLASSES for all pledgers. We have never released logo sunglasses - and they will be cool. 
If we reach $30,000 - WE WILL RECORD A FULL LENGTH ACOUSTIC ALBUM featuring songs from the new album and past albums. Our last - and only - acoustic album was released in 1997 - almost 20 years ago. If we hit this mark, all pledgers will be the first to receive a free download of the full album. In addition, all pledgers will be able to buy the CD for only $5 plus shipping. We have had a ton of requests for this. We'd love to make it happen! Estimated release if we hit the goal: September 2017

In my opinion:

- Free Sticker - Very likely to happen.

- Logo Sunglasses - Difficult mark, but it might happen

- New acoustic album - ALmost impossible to happen (don't get me wrong, I would love to have it)
