New Zealand dance pop/hip hop act Rapture Ruckus is heading back to the studio to record two new EPs -- a big pop EP and a more stripped-back rock EP -- to be released in 2014. However, the label that supported them in New Zealand has folded and the band hopes to continue making the music they feel called to make (without the manipulation of a label), but they need our (and your) help!

The trio have launched an IndieGoGo campaign that is seeking a whopping $30,000 to make the two EPs, but read on (or watch the entertaining video above) for all the details. About the project, the band writes,

We are FINALLY back in the studio, writing and working on new music. Next year we will be releasing 2 brand-new EP's, and we want YOU to do it with us.

We've spent the last few years touring hard and made so many new friends along the way, people from all walks of life who have shared their stories and lives with us. We love making music for you all. Recently some things have changed for us. Most importantly our New Zealand-based record label is no longer continuing their existence as a label, and so it now falls to us to FUND our own recordings. We still have a global distribution network via our US distributor but as of now, no albums for them to distribute.

That's where this Indiegogo campaign comes in.

We could approach some labels here in the US to sign us, and to "advance" the money needed to record new music. This however comes with many strings attached, and honestly would mean giving over control of the music and words we create.

Earlier this year we successfully funded a music video (via Indiegogo) for our song IN CROWD, and have seen an outstanding response to that song and its message. The video has had over 110,000 views in just a couple of months since release, it has been selected by MTV for their program The Freshmen, and every day we receive letters from people who have been encouraged... who feel bolder or more hopeful because of that song.

That is the power of you and us working together. No labels, no one looking for a commercial end game, just our music made with your money. Changing lives. Simple.
