April 17, 2014 Sponge Tour Hits the East Coast in April to Promote PledgeMusic Campaign
Detroit rockers Sponge are touring the East Coast this April to promote their PledgeMusic Campaign which funds an upcoming summer tour and partially benefits Eastside Teen Outreach, a Michigan-based charity.
Sponge launched their 90-day PledgeMusic fundraising campaign on April 6, offering fans exclusive premiums in exchange for pledges. Premiums range from autographed copies of Sponge’s soon-to-be-released “Rotting Alive” CD (a live recording of the band’s classic Rotting Piñata record) to an opportunity to record a song with Sponge. Other highlights include private in-home shows, handwritten lyrics, videotaped music dedications, guitar lessons and even a personal guitar smashing on stage.
Less than 2 weeks into the campaign, Sponge has reached 51% of their goal. Some of the biggest names in music use PledgeMusic’s direct-to-fan music platform to release new material and fund creative projects, most notably Slash and Sevendust.
