Patriotic rock band Madison Rising (http://www.madisonrising.com) today announced the launch of a major Kickstarter project (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1533684542/madison-rising-the-new-album-and-american-tour) to finance production of its second album and lay the groundwork for a national tour.
“We're ready to take it to the next level,” said lead singer Dave Bray. “We've gotten a ton of new material ready to go, and can’t wait to get out on the road and perform for all the fans we have all over this great country. But you know what – gas costs money, being in the studio costs money, getting our music out there costs money. We’ve been doing this own our own dime for the last 18 months. Now we need a little help from our fans to keep it all going.”
The band is launching its newest project hot on the heels of the release of their distinctive and widely acclaimed #1 best selling rendition of the Star Spangled Banner and the launch of the One Million Star Spangled Banner Challenge (http://www.starspangledbannerchallenge.com). The Challenge offers Americans across the country a fun, simple and meaningful way to reinvigorate their patriotism by watching the band’s new video and downloading their rock rendition of the National Anthem to their iPods and other devices. The goal of the Challenge is to reach one million views & downloads by Election Day (November 6th). With over 300,000 views on YouTube in just over a month, the band is well on its way to meeting that goal.
In addition, the band has recently partnered up with The National Anthem Celebration Foundation (http://www.osaycanyousee.org) to work together on their mutual goal of increasing public awareness, education and appreciation for our National Anthem and celebrating the song that identifies us as the land of the free and the home of the brave.
“Fifteen years ago the publishing industry scoffed at the idea of conservative books,” said band manager, Richard Mgrdechian. “Within a few years, they were the hottest thing on the market. The same will happen with pro-American rock music. We’re confident that Madison Rising will lead the way.”
Madison Rising’s debut album has already ranked in the top 100 selling rock albums on Amazon and iTunes and has legions of dedicated fans all over the country. The band promotes the principles of liberty, independence, smaller government and personal responsibility. Their mission is not only to make great music, but also send a message that American culture is alive and well.
