Rush Of Fools Seek Fan Support For New Album

Pop rock band Rush Of Fools were on a winning streak when the misfortune of stolen gear, record label legalities and related mishaps brought them to a screeching halt. Check out a portion of a letter from the band's manager below asking for fan support of a brand new, third release from the band...

"In 2007, I signed these 5 guys from Alabama called Rush Of Fools to management. Over the past three years, we have made two records, which have sold more than 180,000 copies. We have had the opportunity to travel all over the world sharing their music. They have seen many lives changed and drawn closer to Christ because of their lyrics and melodies. At the same time, the band has experienced some serious struggles over those three years including having all their gear stolen, their bus "literally" falling apart on the highway, and most recently their label closing and a legal fight in Nashville courts to win their freedom.

In 2011, the band will relaunch with a new label, and a part new outlook on life. At the same time, we have some serious needs, and felt that those could become a reality by coming to our friends, family, fans, and partners to help us raise $60,000 by January 1st to purchase production gear necessary to get the band back on the road full time. I'm going to ask you for three things with this email:

1) Would you please go right now, and visit www.rushoffools.com, which will bounce you to KickStarter.com, which is hosting our special project. If you want to go directly there now, please click here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rushoffools/rush-of-fools-tour-project

2) Would you please prayerfully consider joining with us financially at one of the reward levels listed on the right side of the project page.

3) Finally, would you please consider sharing our project on your website, facebook, and twitter accounts, and also pass this along to other friends, churches, and organizations that you think might be a part of this with us."

The pledge packages the band offers to the fans are as follows:

Pledge $10 or more
We will send you a personalized, autographed picture signed by all the Fools.

Pledge $25 or more
We will send you our BRAND NEW record, prior to its official release date, as well as a personalized autographed picture.
