Moreover, the band has also launched a crowd funding campaign at Indiegogo (see the link below) for financing the release of new EP and back catalogue reissues.
Band commented on the above as follows:
It's been a while... but we just jammed together in San Francisco over the summer and had an awesome time! We heard there was still a following for us; we had no idea! So we got the idea from a friend why not have some fun and tour again? Play for all our friends and fans old and new, and maybe even write some new songs. Of course, we'll be getting paid from the gigs and stuff we sell on the summer U.K. tour, but we need money now for things like promotion, paying someone to help us book this thing, merchandise up-front costs, 6 plane tickets, 6 visas, transportation, fuel, living accommodations the list goes on and on and on.
And we've been writing new material too! We want to put out an EP of new material, re-release our original material, which has all been professionally remastered, and re-release our 'In This Live' video in a DVD/download format that's been digitized from the original film masters!
We're also offering Indiegogo campaign perks only: handwritten lyrics, custom ring tones, Skype lessons from members of the band, we've got exclusive t-shirts, hats and hoodies, even original test pressings of Pause's scratch sample mix on vinyl we made especially for touring back in the day!
And we've opted for the option to take the entire amount even if we don't reach our goal. So help the Bastard Son of Heavy Metal tour again; every bit helps! See you soon!!!
