What's it all about again?
It's about supporting us to finance our first album through crowdfunding.
Help to make this album happen and support local rock music, which hasn't seen easy days in a long time. In times of DJ parties, tribute bands and dying rock venues, bands have a hard time promoting their own music. Professionals in recording studios want money for their hard-earned skills and the costs are not easy to take by young bands. Especially not if you divide by two.
So you want me to donate or what?
Not directly. You get cool stuff for your support. Check the crowdfunding campaign at Startnext and chose a phenomenal reward.
You can not only get the CD; there is some more interesting loot.
Skepticals are a rock duo from Mainz, Germany. Their music is defined by chunky riffs and driving rhythms. What makes them unusual is that – other than most well-known duos like the White Stripes, The Black Keys or The Graveltones – Skepticals don’t feature a guitar. Instead their tunes smash through everything in the way with only drums and bass accompanied by electronic samples and two voices. While clearly influenced by their heroes with the same lineup like Royal Blood or Death From Above 1979, the music of Queens Of The Stone Age, The Vines, Danko Jones or Black Rebel Motorcycle Club also runs through their veins and into their compositions.
