Northlane go fully independent, launch Patreon
After releasing five studio albums with record label UNFD, Australian metalcore/alternative metal outfit Northlane are now on their own. According to the band, "we have no label, no management and we self produce our own records."
What they do have is a new Patreon called "Northlane Worldeaters," through which they hope to help sustain and "safeguard the longevity" of the band.
Here is the official word:
"We have worked tirelessly over the last 12 years to become the best version of Northlane that we possibly can, but times are changing. We are a completely independent band. We have no label, no management and we self produce our own records.
"The Northlane Wordeaters is our chance to give more to our fans, to safeguard the longevity of what we love to do, and create a community of likeminded people to share ideas and our love for music."Over the last 12 years we have amassed a wealth of knowledge, resources and held a lot back. This is our chance to give in a way that we don’t have to compromise.
"The Northlane Worldeaters is an exclusive club, With many tiers of membership. From less than the price of a beer we’ll be giving you access to new music in advance of the rest of the world, VIP concert tickets, exclusive streams, exclusive merch, exclusive vinyl, an entire library of the tools that we use to create music, photographs that document the history of this band, album stems, Q&A sessions, an online community, unheard demos, presale concert tickets and countless other perks."
