BRISTOL – 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. The tour hits Bleachers in Bristol on April 24. Doors are 7 p.m. and advance tickets are $12.
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 Piata” 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 percent 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.
