The other day we wrote that Marissa Nadler caught our attention with her video accompanying her Kickstarter project. Well today Public Enemy has finally reached their own goal for a fan funded album with the help of Sellaband.
Public Enemy has been kind of like the first high profile test case for fan funded albums. When they faltered many people, me included, lost faith in this model. But I’m getting excited about the possibilities again.
From Public Enemy
We just received word that our fund raising campaign has completed. This is truly a great moment for us and we owe it all to our fams on SellaBand – our true ‘Believers’
As the title of this entry suggests, it has been a long and winding road. We’ve had explosive starts, media attention, corporate troubles, media criticism, recalculations and finally resurgence. When its all said and done, the bottom line is that we never lost faith in ourselves, our fams and the future of fan funding as a model.
We’re over here in Europe killing shows. Moscow and Sofia are in our rear view mirrors and we’ve got a lot more on tap. We’re going to be celebrating this with our fams, so we hope to see you on our winding road.
Thank you. (More here)
