Symphony Crack Orchestra Announces Fan Funded Album Release Spring Tour
PR Log - Oct 21, 2012 - Atlanta, GA -- The Symphony Crack Orchestra is debuting their sophomore album Fiend on the first-ever fan-funded tour this coming spring in a crowd-funding initiative through IndieGoGo. Symphony Crack has taken to their fans and supporters to be an integral part of the process and learn firsthand what it takes to produce a music album release tour of this caliber. With a goal to raise at least $50,000, contributions will be put toward the production and travel support of the show in venues in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida, Alabama and Tennessee, Louisiana, Virginia, Mississippi, Kentucky and West Virginia
“Often times, I have fans asking me how they can break into the music business or how they can learn more about production from behind the scenes. I think this campaign is a great way to provide my fans a behind-the-scenes experience on how a tour is planned, developed, and performed,” said the group’s leader, Ashanti Floyd aka The Mad Violinist.
The Mad Violinist & Symphony Crack Orchestra recently announced the release of their sophomore music album, 'Fiend,' and within 24 hours, 'Fiend' climbed from Top 200 to Top 10 on iTunes. By using crowd funding to help support and promote these talented artists, it enables them to push the boundaries of music once again to inspire others to innovate alongside them. If the campaign is successful, it will allow Symphony Crack to pursue more tours across the nation, and eventually the globe.
“Symphony Crack’s new album, Fiend, pushes the limits of music. Fusing sounds like electronic, classical, and RnB, they are taking music to where no one has before.” –Award Winning Producer, Kane Beatz
Crowd-funding is the pooling of funds, from the people who collectively share a passion about your idea, often giving back a perk. Perks for this tour begin at $25.00 and range from autographed albums, tickets to sold out shows, the first to receive a pair of Velodyne Acoustic’s brand new studio reference vTrue headphone, or sitting front row at you very own private show. While the initiative is a means to raise funds, the purpose is also to educate and involve fans in what it takes to put on a music album release tour.
