Targeting $40,000, the campaign will cover for the recording, mixing and mastering of the upcoming album, marketing, music video making, PR for the crowdfunding campaign, the Zoomaal commission, among other costs.
With donation choices ranging from $5 to $10,000, the band has provided an interesting array of perks, which include pre-release download, signed t-shirts, limited edition posters and signed LP vinyls and backstage passes.
Moreover, a campaign-launch concert is scheduled for 30 July at the Odeon Theatre, Amman, as part of the Al-Balad Music Festival.
The band will also deliver a concert in Egypt; the exact dates and locations of which are yet to be announced.
