Richard Cheese & Lounge Against The Machine are seeking funding to record/produce their 11th studio album, tentatively titled "LET IT BRIE."

*** A limited-edition version of the CD, featuring a special souvenir in the package, will be sold EXCLUSIVELY to KickStarter investors. See "Reward" descriptions to find out how you can get one of these special limited-edition CD packages with a minimum $20/$25 pledge ***

NOTE: FANS OUTSIDE THE U.S. MUST PAY $30/$35, WHICH INCLUDES ADDITIONAL SHIPPING/CUSTOMS FEES. Please read the "Reward" descriptions carefully.

The new album will include at least 14 new tracks, plus big band horns and several celebrity guest duets. Many of the songs are already arranged, including "Stairway To Heaven," "Killing In The Name Of," "How Soon Is Now," "Careless Whisper," "Rock You Like A Huricane," "Doin' Time," "Rehab," and "Gimme That Nut." We just need funding to hire musicians, recording studios, engineers, and to pay for production, mixing, mastering, etc.

$20,000?? WTF, you ask? The money we're raising will be used to CREATE JOBS! We DON'T pocket it!!!! Musicians, arrangers, engineers, producers, graphic artists, and technicians will get HIRED to work on our album. Recording studios will receive revenue; manufacturers will make money; and retail stores will profit from our CD. We are a small business; PLEASE help us help other small businesses!

We are a cover band. We don't make big profits from our CDs, because we pay substantial royalties to all of the original artists. We don't have a major record label funding us. We aren't popular. We don't have a lot of sales. We aren't rich. We only seek enough money to continue making albums for YOU, our loyal fans. C...an you afford to help? Please do. Thank you for your support and loyalty.

Lounge singer Richard Cheese and his Lounge Against The Machine swing band perform swanky Vegas versions of rock, rap, and Top40 hits. Imagine Sinatra singing Radiohead, and you've got the idea. Since 2000, Cheese has sold more than 175,000 CDs and played hundreds of sellout concerts worldwide. Cheese's latest album is "OK Bartender," released independently without major record label funding, is now available on iTunes, and at www.richardcheese.com .

Richard Cheese & is Lounge Against The Machine have been featured in the movie Dawn Of The Dead, ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, CNN with Anderson Cooper, NBC's Las Vegas, Countdown with Keith Olbermann, Opie & Anthony, Howard Stern, Kevin & Bean, Adam Carolla, VH1, and as the house band on NBC's Last Call with Carson Daly and MTV's Say What Karaoke series.
