For a fun Friday post, Frances Cone is looking for some extra help funding their next EP, and while their music may not be metal, I can vouch that frontwoman Frances eats glass for breakfast. Plus, any Deafheaven reference works for me. Head on over to Pledge Music to read more about the project. You can get them to play your birthday party, sing you happy birthday or even get lessons from the band over Skype.

And while Frances may be joking in the video, if you all help her reach her goal and she gets there, I will have her personally sing any metal song you all choose, karaoke style, provided we can find the backing track. I am most assuredly not joking about that.
