To compliment the festival, the label is launching a crowd funding campaign in order to raise additional funds for Kiva.

Among the perks are signed albums and set lists from every band at the festival (including some that aren't), guitar picks, album downloads, etc. As well, fans will have the chance to attend the sound check, hang out with the headliner of their choice, and even punch a record label exec! Full list of available perks below on the crowd funding page:


Band Search For Indie Opener


Based on a points system, bands interested in performing on the festival will have to share the following link:


Each "share" on FB of the STM Festival Indiegogo crowd funding campaign = 1 point
Each ticket sold to the festival = 5 points
Each contribution made by a band member from a participating band = 10 points
All participating band members make a contribution = 25 points
The participating band that raises the most money through the campaign = 50 points

When making contributions on the crowd funding page, contributors are urged to add a comment letting STM Records know, which participating band they're supporting to help get a spot on the festival lineup.

So what does the band win?

The band selected will receive an opening slot at the "Spread the Metal Festival 2013 - Toronto Edition", full backline, get a chance to meet Suffocation, The Agonist, Augury, Skull Fist, and many more, and have their album reviewed by Spread the Metal Records and other industry reps.

Bands interested in participating and questions can email info(@)spreadthemetal.com.
