I guess Mark Hunter is right. I guess this is a trend that will not be going away. At least not any time soon.
Queens, New York-based hardcore act Sworn Enemy have decided to forego standard band label arrangements and go directly to the fans to support their current recording endeavor.
Says the band’s Sal LoCoco: ”Many of you may know Sworn Enemy has been on the scene for a long time. We have been creating some killer new music and we are ready to get it to the fans who want it. However we are in need of fan support. This campaign will not only get you some very cool limited time only merchandise and deals, but most of all it will help us fund the making of our new album. This band has always thrived on the help of the underground and our passionate fans.”
He added: “This time around it will count more than ever, as it will help to get the new music out to the masses! With your contributions, no matter how big or small, we will be able to record, mix, master, and release a hard and brutal album. This is as real as it gets people…let’s make it happen.”
The band is seeking $20,000 and as of this writing, had $90 in the virtual kitty.
