In a shocking development, Amanda Palmer, Alternative musician and half of the duo known as The Dresden Dolls, has raised nearly half a million dollars in donations from her fans to fund her newest album in only two days.

The fundraising efforts started on kickstarter.com with the original goal to raise one hundred thousand dollars. Obliterating the original sum, the total as of press time is a little over four hundred thousand dollars, with over seven thousand donators. The previous record for the site in the music category was a little over two hundred thousand dollars by the rock band Five Iron Frenzy.

Currently, the campaign is to be ended and funded in full on May 31st at midnight.
