City Of Fire — a band featuring Byron Stroud of Strapping Young Lad, Zimmer’s Hole, and Fear Factory fame and Burton C. Bell of Fear Factory — are seeking funding for their second studio album through this site Pledgemusic.com.
The band also boast Bob Wagner of Econoline Crush and guitarist Terry Murray.
“We have been working on demos and produced some rough tracks, however, due to some circumstances beyond our control, it has come to a stand still,” the band says. “We heard about Pledge Music through a friend, and [we are] excited about the possibility of getting this record off the ground again. We want to make a full studio record on our own terms as we all have extensive music experience and think what we want to do musically, is what our fans want to hear.”
The band says that pledges of financial support “will help us get back into the studio and record the follow-up record to our 2010 debut. It will help us record a full CD, get artwork done, manufacture, secure distribution and tour dates.”
That said, I’d never ask any of you to help fund Gun Shy. Unless one of you is extremely rich, and wants to offer us help. That would be fine.
