John Brown's Body
is tackling the indie band lacking necessary finances for touring eternal predicament with a refreshing new campaign. The rising gritty reggae band is teaming up with The Hector Fund to offer fans a series of delights, from unreleased songs and albums to rather more ridiculous company of the band for their various levels of dedication toward the cause.
See: yoga or soccer with the band, the band member with all his keyboards and instruments at your disposal to record your next song, being guest listed for life, dinner with friends at a band member's restaurant....and many, many other like minded unexpected rendezvous with the band or members of the band. Yes they can be your best friends, produce your album and play in your backyard, just as long as you believe in the band enough to help them on their cause to tour overseas.
To kick off the whole shebang, John Brown's Body has an exclusive, never released song. "Sweeter" for download for free at the Hector Fund site
. The horns bursting and bass snaking track is perfect for blasting in a Brooklyn parking lot on a hot summer day, so give it a listen, and help out an independent artist with a creative mind and lots of personal time to offer for those willing to contribute to their tour.-Laura Yan
