Vancouver hard rock outfit, The Veer Union, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund its upcoming EP, ‘Life Support Part 1,’ which the band hopes to produce with help from its fans following a tumultuous few years. The band is offering several donation packages to assist in covering expenses for the forthcoming EP, due out early 2013. Fans can learn more about the Kickstarter campaign via a special video message from vocalist Crispin Earl on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=slsuMidh1NQ#.

“The music industry is changing rapidly, but I personally think companies like Kickstarter are paving the way for real artists to have careers by closing the gap between bands and their fans, making it possible for careers to flourish and bands to continue doing what they love,” said Earl. “This is why The Veer Union needs your help NOW more than ever. We have started recording a brand new EP called ‘Life Support Part 1.’ This record is going to be the most special to me because it is a record made possible by the fans, for the fans, as you are our “LIFE SUPPORT” and could not do it without you. We can’t wait to see you all out on tour in 2013.”
To help fuel the Kickstarter campaign, The Veer Union has released a lyric video for a brand new song “The World I Wanted” on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=2bqUElZFHIU. “The World I Wanted” features a completely revamped The Veer Union lineup and is available for purchase as part of the Kickstarter campaign.
“I have written and recorded a brand new song called ‘The World I Wanted’ with the new members of the band,” added Earl. “This song depicts the depression and personal struggles during the last six months after finding myself on my own.”
