"Vinyl has been on a real tear over the past half-decade. Vinyl album sales have grown by 260% since 2009", Nielsen reports - Billboard April 17, 2015  

In a recent interview, Alice Cooper sums it up as he talks about music fans: "I think they're tired of buying air." 

Tourniquet: Pathogenic Ocular Dissonance - voted "Favorite album of the 1990's" by the readers of HM Magazine. Here's your chance to help us create (and then own!) this iconic metal album. Stellar production by veteran producer Bill Metoyer. If we reach the goal, Bill has signed on to remaster the album specifically for this vinyl release! 

Another iconic band and album recently completed a wildly successful double vinyl LP Kickstarter campaign... "In 1995 The Prayer Chain released their final studio album "Mercury." You helped the band release the album on a double vinyl. Thanks!"

Cooper also spoke about the sudden resurgence of records over the past few years, which has resulted in a more-than-50-percent increase in sales over the between 2013 and 2014 alone. According to Nielsen Soundscan, more than 9.2 million vinyl records were sold in the U.S. last year, a 52 percent increase over 2013 figures. In the first quarter of this year, vinyl album sales were 53 percent higher than Q1 2014, driven by a 66 percent increase in catalog album sales (albums that have been released for at least 18 months) during the same period.

 So why do we need a campaign to make it a reality? 

 1. VINYL IS REALLY COOL. 

 2. VINYL IS REALLY EXPENSIVE TO MANUFACTURE. THIS RELEASE WILL BE 500 UNITS. SINCE IT'S A DOUBLE LP - THE ACTUAL LP COST TO MANUFACTURE IS NEARLY DOUBLE THAT OF A SINGLE LP RELEASE.

 We really want to make this happen - we hope you do too!!

Risks and challenges

The only possible challenge we foresee is the delay in manufacturing due to the current extreme popularity of vinyl. As soon as the goal is met, we will get the ball rolling to get you your rewards as soon as possible.
