We wanted to find a way to bring that sense of energy to our website and our fans across the country that can't come out and see us every night. I think with this new site, we're on our way.
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 31, 2007
Artist Nation companies, UltraStar Entertainment and Musictoday, jointly announced today their partnership with pop punk outfit The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus to launch their official fan club site. The new destination for fans of Red Jumpsuit is now live at http://redjumpsuitalliance.com/ and will be the premier online community for fans worldwide. UltraStar Entertainment will manage the fan club site and Musictoday will oversee their ticketing and on-line store for the band. The launch of The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus' official fan site coincides with the band's North American tour, which kicked off on Tuesday, October 16th, in Philadelphia, PA.
Members of "The Alliance," as The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus official fan club is fondly named, will gain unprecedented access to their favorite band with exclusive multimedia offerings from the band's tour; members only galleries, message boards, live chats, fan blogs and the ability to share artwork with other fans; limited-edition band merchandise including a collectible laminate and lanyard and even a dedicated section to read and follow up on the band with The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus' own blog. Alliance members will also have the chance to buy concert tickets during dedicated members-only presales. An annual Gold Membership is $25.
"We love touring and being in front of an energized crowd," said Elias Reidy of The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. "We wanted to find a way to bring that sense of energy to our website and our fans across the country that can't come out and see us every night. I think with this new site, we're on our way."
"To be able to stay connected to our fan base, 24/7, that's what's really important to us," said Steve Tramposch, manager of The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. "The guys are really excited about the opportunities they'll have to meet fans and the ability to share all the extra video and audio footage they're creating on the road every day."
The first of many exclusives available on the site will be behind-the-scenes footage on the making of the mtvU Woodie Award nominated music video "Your Guardian Angel."
"Fans of The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus are an extremely dedicated and devoted group," said Lawrence Peryer, President of UltraStar Entertainment "The band was looking for ways to more closely connect with fans, and we're happy to put the capabilities of UltraStar and Musictoday at their disposal to do so. This site will capture the spirit and energy of the band's recordings and live performances and will be a strong manifestation of the bands connections with their fans."
