Special thanks to ThinkGeek, GeekDad, Hipster, please!, Nerdy Show, World (and Lunar) Domination, Valley of Steel, and everyone else who has helped raise awareness of our quest! We are infinitely appreciative!
If we are able to reach a secondary goal of $3,000, ALL BACKERS will receive a signed tour poster!
Dethlehem is a tongue-in-cheek, RPG/Fantasy/Metal band from Pittsburgh, PA. We think metal and music should be fun, and interactive. We encourage audience participation by handing out inflatable weapons, acting out skits on stage, using stage props for scenery, and telling tales of our mythos in between songs. We want our crowds to feel like they are part of our legions and are here to help us defend the land as a collective. Basically, we want you to have a great time at our shows and enjoy some epic metal!
We've recently conquered and defended the lands of Pittsburgh and won a few local awards -- notably the 2011 Pittsburgh City Paper's Best Metal Band, and 2011 Back Allie's Best Metal Band & Best Music Video (see above for video) -- and now we're looking to quest to new realms. However, touring has it's own issues for a DIY band and this is where we need you!
Where YOU come in...
Being a 100% Do-It-Yourself band with no label backing, it is difficult to get guaranteed pay at venues in areas that you don't often play. This makes for the energizing of our steed (aka, paying for fuel to put in our van) difficult to do without consistent pay. The money you donate will go directly toward traveling expenses and making the DethleVan long-distance-road-worthy. (See what we did there?)
- Oil changes
- Radiator flush
- A/C recharge
- New tires
- Trailer Rental
These are all things needed to make sure the DethleVan is in top shape for the journey that lays ahead.
We've put together some epic reward packages for you that include our music albums, shirts, stickers, gaming dice, tour dvds, and even some rare, one-of-a-kind props from our show!
**Please take note that some rewards have an estimated delivery of August 2012. In most cases, this means that some parts of the rewards will not be available until August. Some items may ship earlier than that!**
Dethlehem started as a fantastically fun hobby for us. We had no idea we could grow it into the potential touring metal machine we have today. With your help, the community of fans and friends we've made can grow even larger. If you're able to financially support our epic quest to conquer new realms, please consider making a monetary contribution to our cause. Every little bit helps! From the warriors of Dethlehem, we thank thee.
