For the past 10+ years we’ve done as much as we can to support artists from the world over, and that will never change. In fact, over the past 10 years you the readers have done exactly the same thing! Need am example? Well, in taking the time to read this article, stream or download the song “Keeping The Dream Alive”, or by donating to their PledgeMusic crowdfunding campaign, you’re helping the Brazilian progressive/power metal outfit, Daydream XI, to finalize and launch their conceptual double album The Circus of the Tattered and Torn.
The campaign will give fans access to exclusive PledgeMusic items including personalized postcards, signed CDs, songbooks, music lessons, personalized ring tones, intimate concert experiences and more. The new music will be delivered to Pledgers in June, months before the general album release. 5% of any money raised after the goal is reached will benefit The Wild Animal Sanctuary (www.wildanimalsanctuary.org), the world’s largest carnivore sanctuary, home to hundreds of wildlife rescued from captivity.
Daydream XI commented: “The Circus of the Tattered and Torn is the follow-up to Daydream XI’s debut album. It is a conceptual double album with great doses of progressive, heavy and deeply emotional music, tinkering with a dark concept regarding the flawed humanity in us all. The songs are heavier and more dynamic than they were before. It shows a lot of new sides of every one of the four members of the band – going from chaos to order, from light to dark, from soft to heavy, just like a circus performance.”
