We've launched a Patreon for PODCAST MOSH, the greatest semi-monthly podcast from a thrash metal band called Lich King ever.

About two years ago we all got into various podcasts, particularly Harmontown and Rooster Teeth. We figured hey, we've already got the recording equipment - why not try doing a podcast of our own? And so, Podcast Mosh was born.
We went into this without any idea of what to expect or if we were even going to keep going with it. Turns out, we REALLY like doing the podcast - for us, it's fun to just get together and talk music, TV, movies, video games, and other stuff that we don't really have a musical outlet for. On top of that, it's turned out to be a pretty cool way to keep in touch with fans and let them know what we're up to, giving them a little peek into the behind-the-scenes band stuff.
However, given that we only have time to get together once a week, it's difficult to justify spending big chunks of time, effort, and gas money on another goofy thing that we put up on the internet for free when we should be practicing, recording, and writing instead. That's why we're launching this Patreon campaign.
Why Patreon? We want to do Podcast Mosh on a regular basis and keep it free for everyone to listen, but also give people the opportunity to support us financially if they like it. Patreon lets you choose how much you want to donate per episode, and we give you perks based on that amount - kind of like a recurring Kickstarter. Some of the rewards for being a Patron include chatting with us on the podcast via Skype, getting episodes early, or having us play your music and giving you feedback on it.
We've got a few goals in mind that we can achieve if we reach certain amounts of monthly donations. For example we would love to do Podcast Mosh while we're out on tour, or do episodes more than once a month. Further down the line we would like to add a video stream to the podcast. Your contributions can help us make those goals happen.
We hope you all enjoy Podcast Mosh as much we enjoy making it, and we hope you dig it enough to become a Patron. Cheers and thanks for your support.
