Featherheads,

We are Metal Blade Records artist, GYPSYHAWK, and we play electrifying, bullshit-free rock and roll.We were signed to Metal Blade Records in 2011 and released our second full-length album, ‘Revelry and Resilience' in August 2012. Don Jamieson, co-host of VHI Classic’s That Metal Show picked our album as its ‘Pick of the Week’ on September 2012 and our single Overloaded has been #1 on Canada’s CBC Music & Radio 3 Top 10 charts for Rock/Indie/Metal. We are a band that is growing and we have a bright future, but we've hit a bump in the road....

Why we need your help!

Gypsyhawk recently lost their touring vehicle when a bandmember recently left the band, but the show must go on and we can't let this challenge stop us from growing and reaching new fans! Help us MAKE IT HAPPEN!

We have just announced two of the most rad tours we could imagine: Scorpion Child, Kadavar & Mothership in September AND a late fall tour with Alestorm & Trollfest. We have these amazing opportunities awaiting us, but we currently have no way to get there. We have a trailer, but NO VAN! We need your help to get some wheels so we can bring this party to your town.

These tours are crucial for our growth as a band. We’re in the second half of our album sales cycle and we need to tour as much as possible to build our fan base and promote album sales. Successful tours and album sales are what make our world go around and that’s where you, the fans, can make a difference. You can be the wind beneath our hawk wings. (Hahahahaha! You like what we did there?)

Our goal is to raise $15,000 so we can purchase a used van that is reliable enough to take us across the country. A new van would cost more than $35,000 and that’s just not an option for us right now.

We need these funds ASAP and are offering to THANK SUPPORTERS over $100 in the liner notes on the upcoming 2014 Metal Blade Gypsyhawk CD if you PAY BY PAYPAL.  If you pay by paypal, your support will be distributed immediately.

What We’re Offering

You can go on the road with us for a day, be our VIP guest at a show, borrow Eric’s “Bon Jovi” jacket for the night, play a game of Magic the Gathering with us, party with us on the Sunset Strip (if you think you can hang!), chill with us at our practice space in LA…hell, we’ll even throw a BBQ in your honor!

Eric will write you a song about ANYTHING you want. Ron will play your favorite 80s ballad and send you the video.

If you have any special requests for your perk, just send us a message with your contribution and we’ll work something out!

No matter what, all the money raised in the campaign will be used for transportation costs for the tour(s). We may have to rent a van temporarily, while we’re looking for the right vehicle. Because of the timing of the tours and the way the disbursement of funds work for this campaign, we are already running out of time!

ANYONE WHO CONTRIBUTES $100 OR MORE VIA PAY PAL WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE LINER NOTES OF OUR NEXT ALBUM!

We are committed to finding a way to make this happen.

Other Ways You Can Help

If you can't contribute to our campaign, please share this page on Facebook and/or Twitter.  You can also tell your friends about GYPSYHAWK and ask them to listen to our music, request us on the radio or encourage them to check us out on tour.  Please help spread the word.

We want to tour our asses off and bring you Gypsyhawk tunes for years to come. Thanks for taking the time to check out our page.

See you on the road, featherheads! Defend good times!

Thank you.
Gypsyhawk: Eric, Erik, Ian, & Ben

Please remember to add $10 for international shipping! We will send you a follow up email with a survey to get your contact information, shirt size, and any other information we need to fulfill your perks.
