Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds have recently announced that they’ve set up a Crowdfunder to raise funds in support of their road crew.
With the band set to tour last year, the entire crew were deprived of their source of income after COVID-19 brought a catastrophic pause to the music industry.
With the future of gigging still uncertain, there’s no guarantee that the band’s crew will be getting paid soon. The Crowdfunder is designed to help pay for the crew’s living costs until the music industry can restart once again.
The website states: “As freelancers there has been little or no support on offer to them from the authorities, and available work elsewhere is currently almost non-existent. We have supported our direct crew as best as we can, but we thought we’d also have a bit of fun with a prize draw to help raise funds for them.”
To help raise funds, fans will have the chance to win anything from signed guitars to limited edition prints, with the band reeling off over a hundred prizes.
