Help Bring Chile’s Föllakzoid To UK

Dream Machine records are raising money to get the Santiago band over to the UK and Europe to tour and record a live album

Dream Machine Records are trying to get Chilean psych-rockers Föllakzoid across the pond, but these things don’t come cheap and they need $7,500 to do so. Dream Machine helps to promote independent artists and aims to create a global support network for bands. They have already worked with numerous artists including Three Trapped Tigers, Peggy Sue, Bo Ningen and Clinic, and now they’re determined to bring Föllakzoid over to the UK.

In order to help fund the costs of the tour, Dream Machine are pre-selling an album via funding website indiegogo. At the time of writing they’ve got 79 days to raise the money, so if you like what you hear and want to contribute, a $25 donation will get you a copy of the album on CD, plus your name in the credits on the album artwork. You can donate/pre-order yourself a copy of the album here.

Here’s a breakdown of what the money is needed for:
Flights - $5000
Visas - $1000
Recording - $750
CD Manufacturing - $750
