So what is "Fan Funding"

Simply put, "fan funding" is a way for our fans to assist us with more pricey endeavors by pre-ordering product and perks for a set amount of money. Each fan can make a small contribution which will help us achieve a small portion of our total. All of the contributions will receive something in return, and with our campaign, even the lowest price perk will instantly receive a download of the newest single from our album. The more fans that help, the more money we can make on our total goal, and the quicker we can finish the project and distribute the perks. It's simple, and it has become the best way to help a project achieve success. Read the story below for some background about Mindset Defect.


The Album we NEED to make, and the one you NEED to hear.

Over ten years ago the members of Mindset Defect came together with the goal of leaving their unique mark on the music scene. Through our diligent work, energetic live performances, and skillful songwriting, we have made a positive impact on both fans and critics from around the world. In 2009 we released our E.P. Device, which was self produced and recorded with the help of our audio engineer friend, Jason Hall. The E.P. Device was well received by audiences on both terrestrial and internet radio, and we were thrilled to land world wide distribution for our single "Device" on the December 09 issue of Metal Edge magazines sampler CD. We made big strides from our work on that E.P.  for several years, until we made a choice that would change the future of this band for the better. In 2011 we recruited vocalist Jason Carroll, who was well established already from his years of recording and touring with his band 12 Volt Negative Earth. Within a short period of time our song writing shifted in a more melodic and focused direction. After 3 years of honing our craft in both writing and performing, we feel like we have found our sound that is both familiar and unique from rock/metal bands of the time. Our full length CD "Sell The World", will be the first taste of what over 10 years of focus, hard work, failure and success has created. This album is being produced by Malcolm Springer, known for his work with Fear Factory, Greenwheel, Full Devil Jacket, Collective Soul, Matchbox 20 and many more. Malcolm has an incredible gift of breaking bands in the industry because he simply works that hard for something he truly believes in and he is making no exception for Mindset Defect. He has focused our songwriting and helped us expand the spectrum of this album from the most memorable melodies to the most aggressive breakdowns. Each song feels like a complete musical statement on it's own, but they are just pieces of the greater concept that exists within "Sell The World". In the end this is not just the album we WANT to make, it is the album we NEED to make, and the one you NEED to hear.

We are fan funding this album not to receive, but to give.

As of right now Mindset Defect has personally invested funds for over half of this project. The reason we worked to do this was simple, "how can we expect anyone to believe in us, if we don't believe in ourselves". With that being said, we believe that this CD is the biggest thing we have ever done. We are so confident that we wanted to have some singles available to offer early to anyone funding our project, and to instill confidence that the album you are helping to fund will be finished regardless of the total amount raised. Of course the more money we can raise towards our budget, the faster we will be able to finish the project and distribute the perks. You can help even if you don't want any perks, just press the "contribute" button and enter any amount you would like. Any money that we receive over our budget will go into our music video project that is already in the works as well as independent radio promotion. Here is what your funding helps us do.

  • Full pre-production, production, recording, and mixing with Malcolm Springer for the album. Albums of this quality are tons of work and it is worth every penny.
  • Album mastering. Great mastering is the reason why great songs sound like they surround you and draw you in to the music. It is the most important step when bringing songs to radio.
  • Album artwork by Rob Mckinnon, a concept artist known for his work on Terminator Salvation, I am Legend, Iron Man 3 and many more huge Hollywood films. He brought the desolate city artwork for "Sell The World" to life.
  • Typesetting and CD inlay design.
  • CD duplication and inlay card printing.
  • Documentary Video production and DVD replication. We have a great perk for a DVD with footage of our album tracking, interviews of the band members, a music video and many extras.
  • Independent radio promotion. These are the guys that talk to the guys that put songs into rotation on radio stations. An album of this scope needs the best chance to reach our audience, and radio is still the best promotion around.

The Impact

As a band, we have worked to share our love of music with our fans, friends, and fellow music lovers. We have done what we can to reach out to a wider audience of people who can connect with our music and live performances. To move forward, we need the help of those who helped us get this far already.
