As you hopefully heard (or deduced from the emergency red banner at the top of this page) as a newly independent media company Stereogum is seeking your financial help to weather this dismal ad climate and keep the site alive while we complete a much-needed overhaul.
Thanks to everyone who has already supported our crowdfunding campaign at Indiegogo! Over 7,000 copies of our exclusive, all-new ‘00s covers comp Save Stereogum have been claimed along with 2,500 of our first t-shirts in 14 years.
Our “Backstage” merch bundles sold out immediately, so by popular demand today we’re adding some new perks for donors in this final month of the campaign. We’ve added (1) a zip hoodie, enamel pin set, and sticker set bundle, and (2) a new, standalone t-shirt (in multiple colors and sizes S-3XL) you can snag without the comp for a cheaper price. Let’s keep up the momentum to ensure Stereogum stays around for a long time or at least until the next Wrens album.
The “VVIP” perk is a bundle containing:
- A midweight, zippered Independent Trading Co. hooded sweatshirt in heather gunmetal grey featuring another thrilling new design of our name. It’s a 8.5 oz poly/cotton blend.
- A set of 3 high-quality hard enamel pins. Each is 1.25″ wide.
- A set of 6 different stickers.
- And you also get the Zoom virtual launch party from the VIP tier along with the Save Stereogum album download.
And the “PIT” perk is for those of you who have been asking to buy a standalone t-shirt. It features a vintage-style variation of our new design (seen on the hoodie) and the shirt comes in 3 colors (heather navy, maroon, black) and 6 sizes (S-3XL).
Note: this shirt DOES NOT come with the album. You can order the ‘Save Stereogum’ comp separately if you’d like. Unfortunately due to limitations with the platform, we cannot combine shipping with a previously placed order.
And of course you can still grab the previously announced t-shirt/album combo, register for our Zoom album launch party/concert (216 people and counting), or order up your own custom ‘The Number Ones’ column (6 claimed so far!).
It’s all at SaveStereogum.com now. An announcement about additional artists on the covers comp is coming soon!
