Greetings citizens of Earth, General Bastard here to ask the great people of our planet to help in the release of my third full length album which will be entitled Revolution Rock. Many of you have seen me and the band as we've played all across the USA or maybe you might have seen me in the cult classic B Movie Thankskilling which I starred in as the Hermit and also wrote music for.
My first two albums were recorded entirely by myself playing all instruments and recorded in my home studio. This will be the first album for me with an entire band and quite frankly blows away all my past work. We have been recording this album in a top notch studio Metro 37 Studios in Rochester Hills, Mi which has produced albums for many top artists on major record labels so the sound is incredible.
To date this project has been entirely funded by myself so we are seeking the support of our friends, family and fans to help release this album and let it see the light of day. We hope to raise at least $1000 to aid in our endeavor. Any money raised will go towards the manufacturing of CD's and promoting the album so the whole world can hear this amazing release in which we have poured all of our energy into.
We have set up several perk packages for our supporters which we feel to be a great bang for the buck not to mention almost every every perk calls for you to have your name listed in the liner notes for helping us make this possible. These days it is harder and harder for musicians to thrive and survive and especially being that we are 100% independent and DIY with no record label supporting us or paying the bills. It is quite expensive to make dreams a reality but we are almost there and with a little bit of support from all of you we can release an album that will be able to enjoyed long after all of us are no longer on this planet.
I want to thank you all for taking the time to check out our Indie A Go Go campaign and I ask that you please share this with your friends and support independent music and artists.

GENERAL BASTARD BIO
Hailed by many as the guitar hero of our era General Bastard and his band mates have wowed audiences and built a loyal fan base all across the United States with their blend of Surf Thrash. General Bastard also starred in and wrote/performed music for the now cult classic horror film Thankskilling which has been available on every major cable system in the U.S, not to mention a top rated film on Netflix and Hulu and has built up a huge cult fan base. General Bastard has also been playing guitar with legendary shock rock band The Mentors for years as well.
Decked out in camouflage and Luchador mask the General amazes audiences with his guitar acrobats playing songs and solos over the neck of his guitar and displaying an ability to play one handed solos using only his pickhand tapping on the fretboard with his fingers.
General Bastard also shows a diverse range of influences with songs ranging from Punk & metal to straight up surf music that would make Dick Dale himself proud and a knack for covering television theme songs such as The Jefferson's, Laverne & Shirley, King of the Hill and many others.
General Bastard songs are also filled with humour that hasn't been seen since the likes of Frank Zappa. Metal Maniacs magazine said this about General Bastard "Combining hilarious thought provoking original material alongside your favorite TV themes songs like Laverne & Shirley & Gilligans Island among others. The General will have you laughing and singing along all night long! He's not politically correct, he hates sissy rockers Like Scott Stapp & Creed, He sings about how "Emo Must Die" and "Simon Cowell is Fucking With Me" and other tender nuggets like "I Hope You Have a Heart Attack & Fucking Die". Part Big Time Wrestler, Part Bastardized General, Part Professional Pervert The General says the things we're all thinking, but are too afraid to talk about just in case big brother is scantering about."
