WARHOUND are not only one of the sweetest newish hardcore bands, but also the latest to hop on the digital panhandling bandwagon. Apparently they squandered all their money (most likely by literally making more t-shirt designs than songs), lost money on tour, and need ur help. And by help, I mean money. I always wonder how bands come to the conclusion to do the Kickstarter thing… I imagine the discussion being something like this:
Guy 1: “Not enough people are willing to give us money in exchange for our music or merch. Wat do?”
Guy 2: “Let’s see if they will give us money in exchange for nothing.”

Although begging for money on Kickstarter is gay and embarrassing, I really appreciate the part where they sign the poster on the back because lettuce be cereal, the second some some jerk in a band writes his name on something it loses like 50% of its value. For example, back in 2005 I won a PSP autographed by that mosh4christ band PROJECT 86, and the first thing I did was get some rubbing alcohol, a paper towel, and wipe their signatures off of it. And I still use it all the time, but mostly just for emulators.
