Lots of musicians use Kickstarter to raise money to record an album, but German rock band Compressorhead is rather different: They’re all robots, and they need money to build a singer.

Compressorhead is the work of three German artists and engineers who built and maintain the existing band members: lead guitarist “Fingers,” bass player “Bones,” and drummer “Stickboy.”

The band wants to release an album of music, but it doesn’t have a singer. The artists behind Compressorhead are asking Kickstarter for €290,000 (£203,000) to finance the singer robot and the cost of recording an album.

In case you’re curious about Compressorhead, here’s their cover of Motörhead’s “Ace of Spades,” which has almost 7 million views on YouTube:
