American Bombshell start Indiegogo crowd funding campaign for second album
Indianapolis, Indiana, USA rockers American Bombshell have announced that they have started a crowd funding campaign via Indiegogo to raise funds for their second upcoming album.
American Bombshell‘s debut album No Regrets finished at #6 on the Sleaze Roxx’s Top Ten Albums of 2016. Sleaze Roxx stated as follows in that regard: “There’s nothing pretty about American Bombshell‘s debut album No Regrets. It is simply an in your face, dirty, sleazy, rocking album. Again, I was aware of the group’s video for the song “No Regrets” yet that did not resonate that much with me. Luckily, American Bombshell sent a physical copy of their album to the Sleaze Roxx headquarters and despite the odd album cover, all I could say was “Wow”! What a great album. American Bombshell kept the pedal to the metal in a relentless fashion on No Regrets. In a way, American Bombshell‘s debut album reminds me of the now defunct 21st Century Goliath‘s debut album Radio Destroyer, which came out in 2012 and was also full of piss and vinegar while throwing caution to the wind. Out of the albums on Sleaze Roxx’s Top Ten Albums of 2016, the one that I think will be the most difficult to follow up will be American Bombshell‘s No Regrets because I suspect that the natural inclination may be to slow things down a bit for the sophomore album just like 21st Century Goliath unfortunately did as well. In any case, only time will tell.”
American Bombshell‘s “Story” for their Indiegogo campaign states:
American Bombshell – Round 2!
American Bombshell – 5 guys who joined together with a simple goal…to write and perform kick ass rock and roll! It all started in a 10′ x 10′ practice space…a very hot and loud practice space. Through hour upon sweaty hour of motivation, creation, and collaboration – “No Regrets”, our first album, came to be. No Regrets, named for an idealism we’ve come to live by in American Bombshell. Through it all, we give it everything we’ve got, leaving nothing left unsaid or undone – with NO REGRETS. Through the release of No Regrets – we won a nationwide contest (beating over 4000 other entries) – recorded with Mike Clink at EastWest Studio in Hollywood, CA – played the world famous Whisky-a-GoGo stage – performed in front of 6000 people at SXSW ’16 – and played countless shows in front of thousands of people.
That’s awesome…so what’s next?
Now it’s time for the next chapter in our story. We’ve returned to our 10′ x 10′ blazing hot riff factory to craft an even bigger and better group of tunes for the next album. We’ve already started work at The Pop Machine studio in Indianapolis, IN (where “Saving Me” was recorded and produced). With this release, we’re pushing harder than ever to bring American Bombshell to a wider audience. WE NEED YOUR HELP! We need the BOMBSQUAD in full force! We are looking for help to fund the recording, production, videos, and PR campaign.
Considering what we were able to accomplish with the first album, just think what we will be able to do with album #2. We want you to be a part of this with us, and join us in every step of the way.
What’s Our Goal?
We’ve set our goal at $10,000. Included in that goal is recording, duplication, promotion, videos – anything and everything you can think of that you’re used to seeing when a band puts out a new album. The more we raise, the more we’ll be able to offer tor you, our friends and fans.
We think we’ve set up some great and unique perks that offer a little something to everyone. Just want a CD? You got it! Looking for something a little more indulgent? We’ve got you covered as well!
What Will This Mean for American Bombshell?
We’ve got a proven track record of making the most of every opportunity we get, and this is no exception. We have some VERY BIG things in the works, and the success of this campaign will have direct and lasting effects for American Bombshell.
