Westfield Massacre - Sophomore Album & Tour

ONE BAND, ONE STRUGGLE, ONE CHANCE

In 2016 we released our self-titled, debut album on Urban Yeti Records. Our record produced multiple singles including "Underneath The Skin", featuring guest vocalist Randy Blythe from Lamb of God, along with "Build Your Thrones" and "Time To Rise". Our music continues to be played on Sirius XM Liquid Metal and Octane and featured in Revolver, Alternative PressMetal Hammer and many other media outlets.

Thanks to your support, our debut record landed at #3 on iTunes Metal, as well as #14 on Billboard Heatseeker's. We achieved this without any in-store distribution. Its success was purely based on our fans, touring and social media. 

"We believe in our fans as much as they believe in us." - Tommy Vext

In May 2016, we successfully completed a 5 week U.S. Tour with Sevendust and Trivium. Some of our most memorable moments were meeting new fans, making great memories and playing to sold out venues. With much thanks and appreciation to Urban Yeti Records for their past support, we decided to move forward with the direct support of our fans!

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP

Your contribution will help us write, record and produce our sophomore album. This includes fulfilling all obligations associated with this Kickstarter Campaign.

FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE...

We've always been a band for the people, by the people. By helping us Kickstart our sophomore album, you, our fans, can interact and will help us make this record independently, without any middlemen or structured interference from corporate entities. For the people, By the people...
