Blacktop Mojo Launch PledgeMusic Campaign For New Album

Blacktop Mojo have launched a PledgeMusic campaign for their new album. Depending on how much you are willing to spend, you can get things like signed albums, a chance to go fishing with the band, a private concert, etc.

The group commented:

“Hello Friends! It’s time for us to make our third album! Time really flies when you’re having fun.

Due to the incredible success of our last campaign, we’ve decided to team up with PledgeMusic and all of you guys again for ‘Mojo 3’ (working title).

As independent artists, everything we do is fan-funded. We don’t have a record label loaning us a ton of money to make a record. With that, comes some financial pitfalls, but it also means NOBODY tells us how to make music for you guys and we think that’s pretty cool!

Here’s how it works – you can pre-order any of these items from signed copies of the new record, exclusive t-shirts that you can’t find anywhere else, fishing with the band, hangouts, and even your name in the album jacket! Every cent of that money will go back into making the best music we can possibly make for you and putting it on tape. Here, we’ll bring you into our world. You’ll hear streams of new songs, see videos of us recording in the studio, hear special acoustic performances, see pictures of our shenanigans and much, much more. You’ll be fully immersed in the making of this album!

Once we’ve hit our goal and made the record, everyone that pledged will be the first to have it in their hands before the music is available anywhere else!”

Blacktop Mojo have teamed up with Alex Smith for a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams.” The band said the following about that:

“Our good friend from right here in our hometown, Alex Smith, did an acoustic cover of this song at a local show and we loved it. So we asked him if he’d like to come to the studio and record it with us backing him up. Hope you guys enjoy it.. if you do, go find more of his music here.”
