SILVERTUNG Launch Kickstarter Tour Campaign Posted by By Larry Petro, News Monkey, KNAC.com
One of the most promising hard rocking acts on the scene, SILVERTUNG, has recently unleashed their latest release, Devil's In The Details, which is garnering glowing reviews - such as All Access Magazine raving "SILVERTUNG promises to be one of the hottest new rock bands to arrive on the rock music scene. Highly recommended." And now the band - which is comprised of Speed (lead vocals,) Skoot (bass), Danno (drums) & ZZ (lead guitar) - is calling on fans to lend a hand with costs for touring, promotion, and a new video, via the Kickstarter site. The campaign kicked off June 9th and you can learn more here and to make a pledge:
And the band does not take the fact that they are going the Kickstarter route lightly. "Using a Kickstarter campaign wasn't an easy decision," says bass player Skoot. "We've always been honest with our fans," adds lead vocalist, Speed. "We were hoping NOT to run a campaign like Kickstarter, but we realize we needed help. We reinvest all the money earned from performing shows, selling merch and doing side jobs because we're determined to break out!" Skoot joins in by saying, "The loyalty, dedication and support of our growing fan base is humbling, and appreciated more than we can put into words. We promise to use this money wisely, and do our very best to make you proud."
Devil's In The Details was produced by Steven Wright (who has worked with everyone from SLIPKNOT to AVRIL LAVIGNE), which has spawned the single "Coming Alive" (which has garnered over 100 radio spins a week), as well as such standout tracks as "Justify" and "Déjà Vu".
Additionally, the quartet has shared the stage with countless national acts, including GODSMACK, DISTURBED, SHINEDOWN, SLIPKNOT, STAIND, PAPA ROACH, BUCKCHERRY, FILTER, DROWNING POOL and P.O.D., among countless others.
Speed adds, "All money that comes through this campaign will be used to kick-start (No pun intended) this ever growing machine. We'd like to shoot a video for our next single, tour more in support of our new release and get more radio air play to reach the masses!" SILVERTUNG drummer Danno reflects, "Music is something that never leaves me, it never lies and has always been there for me. Our Kickstarter program will allow our fans to be apart of it and share in our accomplishments." Lead guitarist ZZ sums it all up by saying, "Our fans make all of this possible. We wouldn't be where we are without them."
