It has been a mere five days since the Pledge project for the fifth IAMX album was launched and the target was smashed in less than an hour.
Chris Corner‘s solo project managed to reach its initial target within an hour and then quickly doubled and tripled. Corner replied to this response with an eloquent “Fuck me outrageously”. And now, five days in, the meter stands at 353% of target and keeps going up. A staggering number of 1191 pledges have been made as of this moment and this is with another 161 days to go.
Due to this response and high demand, IAMX will be adding more items to pledge for. If you did not manage to snag one of those highly sought after signed CDs or wanted to get your hands on a piece of Chris’ artwork – you now have a second chance. Other items including more Golden Tickets will also be available, this being a ticket which gives you free entrance to all IAMX club headline shows in 2013 and lets you be the first to enter the club.
The new incentives will be available at the PledgeMusic project page at around 6pm (GMT +2) today.
Moreover, there have been additional dates added to the 2013 tour. IAMX are set perform in Greece on May 25th at the Gagarin 205 in Athens and UK fans will be delighted to hear that a London show will take place! Tickets for the show at the Electric Ballroom on April 18th will be released on Monday, October 8th, at 9am over at Ticketweb.
The current tour schedule looks as follows:
