Stratocruiser to Celebrate Its Fans on New Vinyl Release
Stratocruiser to celebrate its fans on new Vinyl release
7-inch limited edition vinyl version of new single funded by fans of NC band
North Carolina-based rock band stratocruiser, today announced the impending release of its latest single, “Kids Hate Rock and Roll,” through all digital outlets on June 2, 2009. Prior to its release, the song has been picked up for rotation on numerous internet and terrestrial radio stations across the country. To celebrate this fact and the band’s five year anniversary, stratocruiser will also issue the new single on collectable 7-inch vinyl. In an interesting twist, stratocruiser is reaching out to its fans to fund the manufacturing cost of the single. For $10, any interested party can place their picture on the cover of the single. For $100, a fan can have the cover song of their choice recorded by the band, and delivered to them digitally. For $300, stratocruiser will write a song for one investor and include it as the B-side to “Kids Hate Rock and Roll.” This song will be based on a song title provided by the interested party. “We decided with all future releases to focus primarily on digital distribution, however, our last vinyl single was incredibly successful, and we have been asked when we would release another,” said singer Clay Howard. “With the way people have embraced this song, we figured there was no better time than the present. We thought it would be fun to give some of our friends and fans a chance to be on the record, whether by including their picture in the sleeve design, or by personally writing or recording them a song.” Information on how to contribute will be available on www.sam-evendor.com starting April 30, 2009.
