SoCal experimental group CHRYSALIS released their new album, Focus On The Center, this past February to great reviews and radio success. Now, the band is gearing up to kick off their upcoming U.S. tour, but are looking for assistance from fans and friends! See below for all pending dates on the upcoming tour. Want to see CHRYSALIS in your town, or just want to help out?
Donate here via IndieGoGo: http://igg.me/at/ChrysalisTour2014/x.
The band has a modest fundraising goal of just $2,600, a fraction of their overall estimated touring cost which includes tour van maintenance, gas to get to and from city to city, merchandise to sell at their shows, food, equipment, and more.
Everyone that donates, no matter what amount, will have their name featured in print in the album notes of the band’s next record.
Donation incentives include signed albums, merch packs, private performances, and signed guitars.
In a band statement on the IndieGoGo page, “While being independent has allowed us to have full creative control over our music, it has been financially difficult to support ourselves while doing so. We’ve done everything within our financial means to get our music out there, and have recently gained some momentum (see reviews below). We realize however, that the best way to gain new fans and establish our career is through touring.”
Boasting an inspiring and eclectic sound that sets them apart from their contemporaries, CHRYSALIS will appeal to fans of various rock, hard rock, and metal sub-genres. Focus On The Center was recorded by John Miller and Kris Comeaux (Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Lorene Drive), produced by John Miller, and mixed/mastered by Danny Concho (formerly of The Waiting Hurt).
CHRYSALIS formed in Barstow, CA in 2003. In 2006, CHRYSALIS released a full-length, self-titled symphonic metal influenced album at the height of the emo and post-hardcore scene. The 2006 release not only charted as one of the top all time sellers in the Gothic Metal genre on CDbaby, but also found a rabid foreign audience as streams in Europe steadily increased. In addition to heightened sales, CHRYSALIS earned a spot on the Vans Warped Tour in 2009. Following the tour, the band shared the stage with the likes of Agent Orange, TSOL, A Day to Remember, Powerman 5000, Fear Before, Heavy Heavy Low Low, and The Apex Theory.
