Rosalie Cunningham (ex-Purson) has launched a PledgeMusic campaign for her new solo album. She is currently finishing up the effort for an early 2019 release.

Cunningham commented:

“Today I launch my PledgeMusic campaign for my new self-titled album, released early 2019, but I promise to make a couple of songs available to you before then to keep you satiated. The record is at the finishing touches stage now and I am over the moon with it. I know you will be too! Here I invite you to be a part of it’s journey out into the big wide world. The music industry is a crazy, complex circus that can bamboozle the fuck out of artists and fans alike. Let’s cut out the middle man and nurture this symbiotic relationship!”

Kyle Shutt (The Sword) Launches Kickstarter Campaign For New Solo Album

Kyle Shutt (The Sword) has launched a Kickstarter campaign for his new solo album. The effort is expected to be released next year and it will see Shutt handling all the instruments and vocals himself.

Shutt commented:

“My name is Kyle Shutt, and you may know me from my years raising hell with The Sword, or from turning Pink Floyd upside down with Doom Side of the Moon, or from sitting a the Draughthouse bar. No matter where you know me from, you probably know that I love a cold beer and playing the hell out of the guitar.

What you probably don’t know is that I love producing albums and rolling up my sleeves to tackle big challenges. While wondering what to do with a mountain of material not necessarily fit for any band that I am in, I heard a tiny, very loud voice telling me to make a solo album in that very sense, solo! I’ll be hitting those drums, slapping that bass, singing those lyrics, and absolutely shredding that guitar. If there’s something that makes a noise I like, I’m playing it.

Now, while making albums is a load of fun, it’s also a load of work that, in 2018 doesn’t come cheap. That’s why I thought I’d ask you all be a part of the launching of this wacky solo career, which isn’t just stopping with this initial album. I’m starting with this record and will go wherever my inspiration takes me. Packages include sick colored vinyl variants, test pressings, studio drop ins, badass baseball tees, hell, I’ll even fly to your hometown to hand deliver your record or hang at your favorite brewery or cover any song of your choosing. Every record purchased will be hand packaged by me and sent with love.

It‘s not easy being an artist these days, and I truly couldn’t do this without your support, so if you have the faith in me to do my part in saving rock ’n’ roll, pick up a record and a shirt and LET’S DO THIS THING!

Risks and challenges:

Everyone knows vinyl takes forever to manufacture, so I’ve chosen May 6, which happens to be my birthday as the release date, since that will give us all plenty of time to produce this record and have it mixed, mastered, sent to press and ready for your needles! I work hard and I work fast and, trust me, this is the soonest I can have these records available.

Shipping worldwide is very pricey, but I’m doing it just for y’all, the only cost that may sneak up is whatever customs charge that your country of residence will apply to the record. There is nothing I can do about that, you have been warned!

The goal, if met, will be going to manufacturing all physical products, studio time, and travel and transport while making the album. The goal, if exceeded, will be met with stretch goals to possibly make a video or additional vinyl pressings, so please, spread the word and let’s create this experience together!”

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!”

Bad Wolves Launch Crowdfunding Campaign For New Film

Bad Wolves have launched an Indiegogo campaign in an effort to raise $65,000 to create a new film called “Breaking The Band.” The movie will focus on the group’s “meteoric rise from unknown band to multi platinum status within 6 months.”

Bad Wolves commented:

“Hey guys,

It’s Tommy, John, Doc, Chris, and Kyle from Bad Wolves and we are stoked to share our latest project with you.

We want YOU to be a part of our new movie “Breaking The Band” that we’re going to start shooting very soon!

Historically, many of the world’s most influential bands never got the opportunity to capture their early years in the trenches. Learning the business side of things, dealing with bus breakdowns, production issues, and scheduling demands. Simply because they couldn’t afford to hire a camera crew. So we are turning it over to you, The Wolfpack!

Over the past year, we have experienced a rollercoaster of tragedy and triumph. From the tragic, untimely loss of Dolores O’ Riordan to the triumphant success of our campaign to raising over a quarter million dollars for her children through our rendition of The Cranberries’ classic, intergenerational hit “Zombie”.

Following the single’s global multi-platinum success with our debut album DISOBEY opened doors for us to perform on some of the world’s biggest festivals and play to fans near and far on arena tours with our label mates Five Finger Death Punch and Nothing More, as well as Breaking Benjamin, Shinedown, and Three Days Grace.

But what does it really take to break a band? How did we get started and what is day-to-day life in a rising band really like?

Our film will be an uncensored peek into the meteoric rise from unknown band to multi platinum status within 6 months, a fascinating glimpse into the music industry exposing all the sides some will never really admit or want to show, and following us around the world to Europe, the US, and Canada this year.

To show our appreciation for your support, we’ve put together some once-in-a lifetime experiences, exclusive specialty items, and content for our die hard fans who want to be a part of or own a piece of Bad Wolves history!”
