Since the beginning of the pandemic, many people have asked us if they can support us financially to help us get through this stupid time. So far, we’ve always declined this, but we’re starting to gratefully accept some help in order to be able to cover necessary costs. Many bands and colleagues resort to options such as Getnext and Patreon, but for several reasons, we don’t want to do that at the moment.
Unfortunately, the sales proceeds from our CDs cover the album production costs only, regardless of our charts success which doesn’t result in any financial benefits or higher profits. Usually we get along well by playing concerts and selling merchandise items at our concerts, but sadly this source of income has been reduced to an absolute minimum, as you know. You can support us by buying stuff at our online shop, and by coming to our concerts as soon as they’ll take place again, or you can support us financially starting from now.
With this money, we’ll cover costs incurred e.g., for the podcast, web hosting and website, essential and unfortunately pretty expensive software subscriptions, and many other costs incurring in the operation of a band. Should there be more money than is needed for this, it will be shared equally among the 3 musicians to help them get through this time. This is not a donation in the proper sense and it is not tax-deductible, because we are not a charitable organisation. It’s a private sponsoring.
