I feel like this is a stock market model being adopted by the bands being discussed. It's simply because fans (stock/stakeholders) put money into a band (business) and expect the band to create a great album (product) for fans. I doubt fans putting money into the band are getting much of a return though, like maybe the album is shitty and/or available for free. So a band better get this right the first time and not piss off their fans because they decided to experiment.

idk how well other bands would do because PtH has the neckbeard market locked down, so duh they would make tons of internet money.

Bands have been doing this for a good few years now.

The fact that some people are only hearing about it when PtH does it should be a good indication of why they are NOT a good case to use as a metre stick.

It costs money to make money.

I'll gladly pre-order an unfinished album at the cost of letting one of my favorite bands have more control over their careers. You say this like we're getting screwed or something.

I take the "pre-order" is cheaper than the "post-order" right?

Buying something you have 0% idea whether you'll like it or not is different than buying something you can find info about/hear snippets of the songs/hear songs on the radio/read reviews/etc.

I think that as a band like this, you could at least throw down a quick demo or two and say "This. We want to do an album full of this next, only recorded completely awesome. Who likes this and wants to give us money to do it?".

If it's a band I know of and I like I wouldn't mind throwing them money before they make the songs if they give me an incentive to do so now and not after the album is out.
E.g make it cheaper, or maybe add an unreleased song that only I can listen to, or something.

How exactly are you reading that as if I'm saying you're getting 'screwed or something'?
What part of my post even hinted slightly in that direction?

I'm just commenting on how things have changed.
When I was a kid, I'd go to something we used to call a 'record shop', pick out a piece of 'vinal' I liked the look of from it's cover and take it to the guy behind the counter who would then put it on for me while I stood in a 'listening booth' and checked it out before I purchased it.

Now I find bands on a computer screen, give them some money to make a recording with, wait for the recording to be made and released and eventualy get it sent to me via e-mail.

Cant they just get a normal loan or something?
Yeah I have no idea how the music industry actually works, but if you can produce the record just with crowdfunding, it means you can produce it just with money (even if you don't have a label), so why not just get a loan, produce the record, get sales back from it, pay off the loan and get profit?

Like...almost every small business in existence?

Or am I missing something?
