The new album from Buffalo Tom has been fully funded by their fans (including yours truly). My faith in humanity has been restored.
A note from Buffalo Tom:
I used to think it was a bit sad that bands and artists I love had to resort to crowd-funding platforms to release new music. But upon further reflection, I think it’s better this way – no meddling from the suits at a record label, and a more direct connection to the fans that love their music. Rock on!
