I'd pay for the whole thing if he got the original members back and grew his mullet back out.

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

this could be HUGE if he did.

So this Kickstarter began in August, ended in September, and estimated a completion date of March 2017. But I've seen absolutely nothing to indicate that they've even begun to record. Nothing about a vocalist. Nothing on the Kickstarter page. Just no news whatsoever...

Has anyone heard anything about this?  Ted needs to send an update, I think.

Yeah, I totally understand delays, and that's the norm with these things. I never expect the target date to be met. But just to go completely silent doesn't seem fair to the nearly 500 people who contributed.

I don't even remember what package I pledged. But when I was going to back this campaign, I knew that we would have to wait a long time before getting our perks. The Onward to Freedom album was delivered more than a year late.
My main concern is that Ted didn't make any announcement about the new singer.

Haven't followed this band for long at all, although I've known about them for a while now. I love their older stuff a lot. I'd LOVE something like, or at least very similar, to Psycho Surgery. In my opinion (From that of their music I've heard so far) is their best album, or at least their best 90's album. My personal fav.


If I get some spare cash in time, and if their Kickstarter is still up, I'd more than likely throw my money down blindly just for any chance at all to get another Tourniquet album.

First of all, Ted didn't have a mullet per se. Bangs, maybe. Sorry to split hairs (har-dee-har-har). I took these pics in 1993 in Houston.
Second of all, I'm looking forward to the new vocalist announcement and new music. I assumed Aaron would handle shouting vocals as he has for the past 20+ years (except on WMARD). I think two new vocalists would be too much shell-shock for old fans like me to handle. Not sure why that would happen, unless Aaron is no longer with the band?

I haven't seen much speculation on who the new vocalist will be. Here's my speculation:
The more I think about this, the more I think it could be Nick Villars. This guy was/is virtually unknown, so why did Ted have him do vocals on 3 songs from Onward to Freedom? Seems like he was trying to slowly introduce this guy to Tourniquet fans. While his vocals were cool on those songs, I can't really picture him taking over lead vocal duties.
The other guy I think it could be is Eli Prinsen. Haven't heard anything about him since he left Sacred Warrior last year. While his style with The Sacrificed and Sacred Warrior doesn't match Tourniquet's music, I could see him adjusting to a more thrash-like style and bringing a new twist to the band:

Ted just posted that Tourniquet is playing a show in Mexico on April 14th, only two weeks from now. He is also commenting that the lineup will be announced very soon.

I'd be happy to get a "voiceless" album now, then have the option to get the full album in the future.

I saw that as well. This is another Kickstarter for which I'd like to have my money back.

It is getting to the point that I'd rather have my money back out of most Kickstarter campaigns.  Few can deliver the album or the other rewards when promised.  A few days or even a couple of weeks is understandable.  But, many times, you get months and months (sometimes years) before the album is released.  With one I recently did, they sent out MP3s but I still haven't gotten my CD even though people have been able to buy them at the shows for a few weeks now.  To be honest, I am over crowdfunding.

I'm not giving up yet, sometimes crowdfunding is the only way to hear new music from old artists.  Unless you count the Demon Hunter "crowdfunding" that was really just a pre-order I have yet to have anything come out on time.

I'm not into crowdfunding at all. Of course it's a way for old artists to get to release new music, but I find the idea of a band first having to convince a label quite assuring.

But then again, this crowdfunding for bands may be more of an American thing. It happens quite alot with US bands, there aren't many European examples I know of. Of course there was the Essence of Sorrow debacle last month, but other than that...

No.  Just no.  Lesser known artists manage to find a way to record and produce new music without having to raise thousands and thousands of dollars.  Sure, they may not have the funds to promote an album like it should, but a lot of times these more known bands and still trying to market as though they were still relevant to the general populace but aren't exactly setting sales records.  The fans may get a new record, but you are not going to return to the glory days no matter what happens.

Oh, someone will mention that the quality isn't there for most indie artists.  I beg to differ.  Not to blow my own horn, but I dare someone to listen to my new blues rock stuff as Big Chris & D'Bare Bones Band and tell me that quality can't be achieved on a shoestring budget.  To record, I have a small "band in a box" Korg unit.  I recorded everything at home and spent less than $700 to get it professionally mixed, mastered, AND have CDs made.  For another $100, I was able to use CD Baby Pro to get my music out to all digital outlets.  The myth that you have to have crowdfunding to be able to record a quality project is exactly that--a myth.  Bands like Saint and Lordchain have repeatedly shown you can obtain quality by doing it yourself.

Plus, doing yourself means that an artist doesn't have to pay income taxes on the money that comes in through a crowdfunding campaign.  Many artists find that out the hard way.  You may be helping yourself if you sell well enough, but there are added expenses to using crowdfunding that to me are just not necessary.

Crowdfunding just needs to stop.  You are an artist.  Create music while also creating a way to get it done without having to ask for handouts.  Will that mean hard work on top of making your normal living?  Sure!  We are artists, and that is part of the burden of being one.  We will find a way to create music

Yes and No!

Yes the old days are gone and there is no big industry left that sells thousands
of metal albums. Some of the "big" bands of the days of old are now not known to the public anymore because they haven´t released albums maybe for decades.
 You can´t sell thousands of METAL CDs anymore.
Also the possibility of digital recording is much easier and cheaper than back then.

But: No, you can´t compare an independent release to a major release.
You can´t compare the opportunities of an professional studio with a professional
producer to an independent production.

As an artist you have to spend a lot of money and / or time for example for
equipment like:
good instruments, speakers, amps, recording hard- and software,
mics, effects, ... design, cover, booklet, manufactoring, promotion, ...

even before there is a final product.

If there is a market and people willing to contribute and support the artist, crowdfunding is a good thing.

If you create arts you should get something in return.
People don´t become rich in the music industries nowadays
but they need to be able to pay their bills. That is how it works.

If someone has a product that caused lower costs fine but you can´t 
compare this product to major releases with a big production in which many many 
people and equipment were involved in.

It should´t be a "burden" to be an artist.
Created art is not for free. It is also work that needs to be paid.

... and last but not least:

a) there is still a big market for METAL here in Europe but the artist have their income
    by playing live and selling merchandise like shirts.

b) I was no backer for the new Tourniquet release but I will surely buy it when it is released.

Created art is not for free. It is also work that needs to be paid.

Creating art is a business just like anything else.  Any business is a struggle and it is up to that business to find ways to compete and make money doing what they want.  Artists shouldn't be guaranteed a paycheck moreso than any other businessperson whether you sell music or whether you sell brake pads.

@alldat: Yes, for sure. But I feel that there is nothing wrong to support
              your favourite band doing a new album.
               If you sell brake pads you know that they are bought and needed.
               Making a record / vinyl / Cd is a risk nowadays.
               You don´t know if you will sell them anymore.             

              It is like producing special old brake pads for Oldtimers.
              And it is like: I need this special brake pads for my Oldtimer
              because I love driving this special car. I will support you because
              if I don´t the production will never happen.


@Black Rider: Don´t support them!

              I am thinking of the title of the thread: I think of Tourniquet or
              Deliverance. Maybe without the backers the new recordings
              would have never ever happened.
