Florida’s 21st Century rock outfit, Message To Venus, has launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for the release and promotion of its debut full-length album,
Victims & Villains. The campaign, available online at: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-message-to-venus-release-their-new-album-victims-villains, seeks to raise $10,000 during the month of July and offers several unique Victims & Villains perks, including advance music, a personalized Message To Venus comic book and more. Money raised during the campaign will be put toward a music video, touring expenses, marketing and more.
To whet the appetite of fans around the globe, Message To Venus has posted a Victims & Villains teaser video on YouTube at: http://youtu.be/g7NOvgcU2ZE.
Commented the band:
“If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? The same applies to an album that goes unheard. And we want to be heard! That’s why we’ve decided to make our new album available to you, our closest fans, in advance of the official release date. With your support, we can raise the money needed to properly release and promote our new album, ‘Victims & Villains.’ For your contribution, you’ll receive exclusive perks in return, from an autographed copy of the new album, a limited edition poster to even having your own personalized comic book!”
Victims & Villains was recorded in the band’s native San Juan, Puerto Rico with producer, Leo Alvarez.
The upcoming album follows the 2011 EP, ‘The Envelope,’ which, along with lead single, “Universal You,” drew praise from established artists such as Godsmack and Halestorm while receiving weekly spins at SiriusXM Octane, MusicChoice and more. The track was also featured in the motion picture, The Witness (El Testigo). Stream the “Universal You” music video on YouTube at: http://youtu.be/oMoWsoDRSHo.
Following the release of ‘The Envelope,’ Message To Venus made the decision to relocate from San Juan to Miami, Fla. “Puerto Rico is beautiful…it’s our home,” explained guitarist, John Feliciano. “We play there as often as we can, but in order to expand globally we want to be planted on soil where touring opportunities are more frequent.”
After being nominated for a Latin Rock Award in the ‘Slam Alternativo/Rock’ category in 2012, as well as participation in the International Day of Non-Violence, Message To Venus successfully employed the help of fans through a crowdfunding campaign and toured the U.S. in 2013.
The quartet is now seeking its dedicated fans’ help again to bring Victims & Villains to the masses.
