THANK YOU!!! BUT IT'S NOT DONE YET- THIS KICKSTARTER ENDS FRIDAY DECEMBER 5th AT 11PM EASTERN. Let's stretch!

 All backers get digital DLs of 5 b-sides & demos from Big Dark Love + the new Kickstarter Covers.
STRETCH GOAL # 3: $275K All backers get digital DLs of SIX b-sides & demos from Big Dark Love PLUS two Xmas songs, PLUS an MBD sticker
STRETCH GOAL # 4: $326,594  Help us reclaim our position as the 3rd highest music project on Kickstarter! All backers get digital DLs of SIX b-sides & demos from Big Dark Love PLUS two Xmas songs, PLUS an MBD sticker. Backers $101 and above get a 10" of the bsides and demos- only available from this kickstarter! PLUS... we will release all the Kickstarter covers on a vinyl record set that backers will get 25% off the future price.

WHY ARE WE DOING A KICKSTARTER?  By overwhelming demand, you guys convinced us this is a much more interesting and effective way to pre-sell an album. We brought back a few things from the last Kickstarter & also created a bunch of new stuff we thought you'd like. There were moments of beauty that happened with the release of our last record- generous backers- friends making extraordinary gestures, and overwhelmingly positive reactions from everyone involved. Let's see what happens this time!

NEWWWWWWW RECORDDDDDD
NEWWWWWWW RECORDDDDDD


WHAT ARE THE MAIN THINGS WE ARE SELLING?  This Kickstarter will focus on the production and release of our 7th full length album "Big Dark Love" as well as "Framed: The Poster Art of Murder By Death" - an art book that chronicles the history of our tours through the posters we have collected in almost 15 years of MBD shows. The artists are being paid for the use of their art and this will be a limited printing for Kickstarter that will not be available in stores. Adam has saved one of every poster he could get his hands on, and "Framed: The Poster Art of MBD" is a collection of our favorites. The book represents 15 years of everything from photocopied handbills for house shows to beautiful glow-in-the-dark prints used to promote theater gigs. It also has essays by the band and several screenprinters/artists. 

ART! BOOK! ART BOOK!
ART! BOOK! ART BOOK!

By being a backer you also support reprinting our older albums on vinyl. We release all our vinyl, and maintaining the space and organizing deliveries is expensive. The last Kickstarter helped us reprint those albums, and we're running out of stock again! We want to continue to create beautiful vinyl records, so we thank you for facilitating their production and hope you continue to enjoy them.

I BACKED THE 2012 KICKSTARTER. ANYTHING SPECIAL FOR ME?  We want to acknowledge the people who supported our last Kickstarter. ANY 2012 MBD KS BACKERS WHO SUPPORT THIS PRE-SALE WILL GET 3 BONUS TRACKS VIA DIGITAL DL OF B-SIDES/ ACOUSTIC DEMOS OF SONGS FROM THE NEW RECORD. THANK YOU.

TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE ALBUM...  With Kevin Ratterman engineering and John Congleton mixing, we made the biggest sounding record of our career and we are extremely proud of it. It's called Big Dark Love because it is a collection of non-traditional love songs. Some are dark- too dark. There's one about the love a parent feels for a child, one about love of humanity- it's all over the place. This is a really strong record for us and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. It will come out February 3rd, 2015 on Bloodshot Records. 

TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE ART BOOK...  It is a beautiful full color hardcover 12 1/4" x 12 1/4" book (same size as a vinyl record) with over 100 MBD posters from the last 15 years. It has essays by the band and screen printers and artists. It is gorgeous and celebrates the art of the show flyer. Personally assembled by Adam Turla with graphic design by our friend Birch Miller. 
We have made every effort to track down each artist and it has been a task. Some of these posters are very old and have no signature. But we have found almost all of them and have their permission and addresses so we can compensate them for the use of their posters and get them a copy of the book! Every single response has been positive. 

Us. And some of you!

  • FAQ

WHEN DO ORDERS SHIP?  The band will be spending most of the winter packaging and shipping your orders. Orders go out January 21st! You will get it a few days before it comes out in the store, same goes for digital downloads.

I'M ORDERING AS A GIFT FOR XMAS- WILL I GET THE ALBUM IN TIME?  No, the record doesn't come out 'til Feb. 3rd. But we are sending holiday cards to each supporter so you can give one to the recipient to whet their appetite for the upcoming gift. Something to put under the tree. As many of you know, we usually do a holiday promotion, so this is kind of like a big version of that! 

DOES THE NEW RECORD COME WITH DIGITAL DOWNLOADS?  YES!

CAN I ADD THINGS TO MY ORDER?  Sure. Just tag on the price of the other item you want when you checkout, and specify your extra item in the backer survey that you'll get once the KS is funded. For example- if you want the Standard Edition of Big Dark Love on vinyl ($20) AND the Special Edition of Big Dark Love on vinyl ($30) just choose the more expensive reward ($30) and tack on the lower amount ($20) at checkout. YOU CAN'T ADD MORE EXPENSIVE ITEMS TO A CHEAPER PLEDGE AMOUNT. PICK THE HIGHER AMOUNT AND USE THE PRICE LIST BELOW TO DETERMINE HOW MUCH TO ADD ON FOR EACH ITEM. 

ADD ON PRICE LIST PER ITEM: 
$5 MBD/SAMANTHA CRAIN SPLIT 7"
$10 BIG DARK LOVE DIGITAL DL
$15 BIG DARK LOVE CD
$20 STANDARD EDITION BIG DARK LOVE VINYL
$20 MBD/ KICKSTARTER T SHIRT
$30 SPECIAL EDITION BIG DARK LOVE VINYL
$65 FRAMED: THE POSTER ART OF MBD
$200 add on a test pressing! Be sure the direct message us so we know which one you want!

ADD THE ABOVE AMOUNT EXTRA PER ITEM WHEN YOU PLEDGE. WHEN THE KICKSTARTER IS DONE,  AFTER CHECKOUT YOU'LL GET A BACKER SURVEY WHERE YOU CAN SPECIFY YOUR ADDITIONAL ITEMS. 
IF YOU'RE A BIG SPENDER WHO WANTS TO GET A BUNCH OF HIGH END STUFF MESSAGE US THROUGH KICKSTARTER.

CAVE CONCERT!
CAVE CONCERT!

HOW DO I GET TO HEAR THE KICKSTARTER COVERS AND WHEN WILL I GET IT AND HOW?  If we beat our first stretch point ($187k) you're all gonna get any recordings of the covers people pay for us to do. We will record it at our local studio. Its free to all youse. It will come out late summer and you will get an email with a link to download.

I HAVE SO, SO MANY QUESTIONS, AM I JUST A REALLY INQUISITIVE PERSON?   Maybe? Just message us through Kickstarter or email us at mbdband@gmail.com and we will try to help.

REMIND ME WHAT COMES WITH THE FOREVER CLUB?  It starts with a collection of all our albums on vinyl. Then, any time we put something out (vinyl, cds, tour posters, pint glasses, belt buckles, etc etc etc) we send you one. No fuss. We would send shirts but we make so many your closets would overflow. Plus you get a cool patch. I AM A MEMBER OF THE KICKSTARTER FOREVER CLUB FROM 2012, WHAT DO I  GET?

WILL YOU REALLY RECORD A COVER OF ANY SONG I WANT? EVEN STUFF YOU HATE?  Yes. And we hate a lot of stuff. But that could be interesting and cool. Sometimes the songs you don't expect to work turn out even better. OK ONE ADDENDUM- IT SHOULD BE A SONG THAT HAS BEEN PREVIOUSLY RELEASED, PLEASE DON"T ASK US TO RECORD YOUR SONG, AS THAT KIND OF GOES AGAINST THE IDEA WE ARE TRYING TO GET ACROSS HERE.

TELL ME MORE ABOUT THESE HOUSE SHOWS YOU WILL PLAY...
Ok. This is gonna rule. Some basic answers.

  • WHAT AM I BUYING WITH ALL THIS BIG MONIES? Adam and Sarah will come and do a show just the two of them. We play for an hour or so, a set list you choose in advance (you pick 10 songs, and we will pick the rest). We will hang out and party, but obviously, depending on the day, we eventually gotta take off at some point to get to the next show etc etc etc. It's probably regular show length. Like 3 hours. WE WOULD PREFER TO NOT DO WEDDINGS. We did that with the last Kickstarter and it was lovely, but scheduling was difficult and the chance of missing the events stressed us out.
  • YES YOU CAN POOL YOUR MONEY TOGETHER WITH A BUNCH OF FRIENDS/ FAMILY. But please don't charge for the show. Ok, maybe you can pass around the hat or take donations or whatever.
  • WHY SO EXPENSIVE? First of all, lets not forget kickstarter fees, transportation, accommodations, travel costs, crew, etc etc etc. We know a lot of you have asked us to play your events, and ask how much. We also know this is a lot of money, but this is what it will take to make a general price that includes anywhere in North America. If you are from somewhere other than North America, feel free to contact us, as we are totally open to playing your fine city in a far off land. YOU DON'T AUTOMATICALLY HAVE TO PAY MORE IF YOU ARE FROM FAR AWAY. IN FACT, WE LOVE TRAVELLING TO DISTANT LANDS. It just might take a moment to get us all there. Maybe you wanna do a destination show. That could be awesome. Email us at mbdband@gmail.com to discuss any serious inquiries. 
I WANT TO HEAR MORE ABOUT THE CEDAR POINT TRIP...  We will arrange a time that works for both you and us. It will happen this year depending on what we can work out together. We book you and a friend flights/transportation to arrive in Cleveland/Sandusky, Ohio. The band picks you up in our tour van "The Pork Chop Express 5". We check you into your hotel in Cleveland. Then we sally forth to Cedar Point. Don't bother bringing cash- that's what your donation covers. We take you around the best roller coaster park in the world http://www.cedarpoint.com/ like kids in a candy shop. Play your heart out at silly games, ski ball, ring toss, video games, whatever! We dish out the cash and tokens. Ride 20 roller coasters. Eat junk food 'till you get sick, then ride 20 more roller coasters and get sick again. Gonna rule. Contact mbdband@gmail.com if you have any concerns/serious inquiries. Here's some photos from last time!

NO FUN ALLOWED.

I WAS AN ARTIST WHOSE IMAGE YOU REPRODUCED FOR THE ART BOOK. WHEN WILL I GET MY $$$ AND BOOK?   They'll ship when everything else does on January 21st, 2015. If you are one of the very few artists who we could not track down, or one of the "unknown artists" please contact us immediately at mbdband@gmail.com so we can properly compensate you!

Risks and challenges

Our last kickstarter was quite successful and we had a very efficient delivery system. Everything was on time, and the response from the backers was extremely positive. We had not intended on doing another kickstarter but the supporters overwhelmingly demanded we give it a second go. The phrase "best kickstarter ever" was used a lot. We feel more prepared now too!
