We are the band "Why Are You Wearing That Stupid Man-suit?" (or "YR" for short) from Gothenburg, Sweden.
We play our own special mutation of rock n' roll, which we like to call "Erotic Death Funk" (or just "hard rock, with a twist" as someone once put it).
We've recently recorded a follow-up to last year's single "Fight The People!" (check it out on both Spotify and Youtube).
THIS new single is called "Devil's Tango" and has a more hardcore punk vibe, but it also comes with not one, but TWO B-sides: One is a brutal grunge metal song called "Senseless Shitfaced" and the other is a twisted metal/jazz/funk hybrid which actually lacks a title because we're giving YOU the chance to name it! (see "rewards" for more info on that)
As you might have guessed by now, we love vinyl releases, but vinyl costs money and that's where YOU come in, dear fan!
We need to raise 18,700 SEK, which is roughly 2000$.
These monies will finance:
* Mastering of the tracks
* Printing of the physical record
* Paying for the artwork
* Shipping the records to all of you
Don't have a vinyl player? No worries. Either you could hang it on the wall, or you could choose a t-shirt instead. Anyway, you'll get a download code and you'll be added to our official "thank you" list.
Backers who pledge more get even more treats.
In fact, some of the higher tiers of pledges lets you take part in the creation of the record. For example, if you paint/draw, there's a reward that lets you design the inner sleeve of the record. Another one lets you name a song.
If you have anymore suggestions for high-tier rewards, please let us know!
Now, let's get this record released!

Risks and challenges
As you can hear in the video, the music is already recorded and mixed.
As soon as we reach our goal, we'll have money for both mastering and printing PLUS shipping (yes, it turns out we pay the same fee no matter where in the world we send it).
Basically, the only thing that could go wrong would be us not reaching the goal (which of course wouldn't mean any financial losses for either us or our backers) and even then, the music would still end up being released digitally AND all the backers would receive free download codes as an appreciation for their support.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
