  1. Make sure you have a Bandcamp Fan account with a nicely stocked wishlist

When your birthday rolls around, we’ll Tweet it out to our crew on the  @MetalBCgiftclub Twitter account. Be sure to follow and show love to other #MetalBandcampgiftclub folks – it puts smiles on their faces, and supports bands and labels! Everybody wins!

#MetalBandcampgiftclub Slack Channel

Slack App Icon

Not everyone is on Twitter, so it’s high time we’ve all got someplace to hang out and chat about the music we love.

(Slack is an online place for real-time chat that can be accessed via the web and on mobile devices)

The #MetalBandcampgiftclub Slack Channel will be a home for talking about giving music, supporting artists, and new (and old) music discoveries. While other topics may come up, we hope to keep things positive, and focused on working towards good things with our love for #MetalBandcampgiftclub and everything it’s become since we started in early 2016.

If you’d like to be a part, simply email Seth for an invite: seth@metalbandcampgift.club

Mentioned in the Monthly Missive

Stoked to see a mention in Sophie Benjamin’s ‘Monthly Missive,’ an email newsletter filled with links to great articles and interviews.

This polite request for you guys to fund my music purchasing addiction is inspired by Metal Bandcamp Gift Club, which was started by one of the Missive’s biggest supporters, Seth Werkheiser, and a couple of his mates. His metal trivia email Skull Toaster was one of the inspirations to start this thing in the first place.
