Rap group have secured £51,000 through fan-funding site Sellaband
Public Enemy have raised enough money from fan-investment to record a new album.
The rap collective have secured £51,000 through fan-funding site Sellaband.
“It has been a long and winding road,” they continued. “We’ve had explosive starts, media attention, corporate troubles, media criticism, recalculations and finally resurgence. When its all said and done, the bottom line is that we never lost faith in ourselves, our fams and the future of fan funding as a model.”
Fans, or ‘Believers’ as Sellaband call them, could invest varying increments of £17 in exchange for copies of the album, while bigger contributions will be rewarded with limited edition T-shirts, signed CDs and even a studio visit whilst the group record the album.
The as-yet untitled album will be the group’s eleventh studio effort and the follow-up to 2007’s ‘How You Sell Soul To A Soulless People Who Sold Their Soul???’.
