Hello we are SLAY DUGGEE. We make heavy metal music for kids and their parents. Mostly theme tunes and songs from niche kids' TV.
In February 2018 we released a metal cover version of the 'STICK' song from the CBeebies show 'Hey Duggee'. It was a smash hit. The video got over half a million views and listens and BBC 6Music's Steve Lamacq dubbed us the 'Lords of Toddler Metal' - we'll take that!
Since then we've released more songs and videos which have all had kids forming spontaneous circle pits in their living rooms. But our audience has grown restless and demanding. They want Slay Duggee songs in a format which eases their listener journey. Trying to play Facebook videos in the car can be a little bit crashy. So Slay Duggee want to put out a collection of our classic songs, as well as loads of new songs on CD, and all digital download and streaming platforms.
This debut Slay Duggee album will contain between 12 and 18 songs including STICK, Sarah & Duck, GoJetters, The Sea The Sky, Everything Is Awesome, and more future classics. And should play for under 20 minutes (that'll be more than enough...trust us!)
We need £2000 to finish off our album. £700 to professionally mix the songs so that your ears can enjoy them far more than ever before. £1297 to press and distribute our CDs in a shiny case with a beautiful colour inlay, and to upload and distribute to digital platforms. £3 to buy biscuits and water for our Kickstarter video shoot.
And shhhhhh... we'll let you in on our masterplan... When this amazing CD is out we can truly start our campaign to get Slay Duggee booked to play at Download Festival 2019. Come on people we can make it happen! Let these four Dads take their rockstar fantasy to its full natural conclusion... and on the way we'll turn the world's kids into sweaty headbangers!
THANK YOU!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!!!
We might even get some special guests on the album too. Who'd you like to hear?
Risks and challenges
There isn't much risk or challenge with this project. We have recorded a lot of the album. If we don't get enough money we will still release it unprofessionally mixed via digital channels. But Slay Duggee would prefer your ears to have a professionally mixed and mastered album on a holographic wonder disc...it's what your children's ears deserve.
All members of Slay Duggee have previously produced and released professional music within other musical projects; These dogs know what we is doing!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
