Madina Lake to release fan-funded EP

Chicago rockers have signed a deal with fan funding site Pledge Music

Madina Lake are asking fans to help fund their next EP.

The Chicago rockers have signed a deal with fan funding site Pledge Music, aiming to raise money to pay for the recording and release of an as-of-yet untitled EP.

For the campaign fans can invest as little as $12 (£7) going up to $5,000 (£3,000), with the band offering incentives for those outlaying more money.


All participants will get a copy of the finished EP, with signed T-shirts, guitars and even home concerts available for those investing higher amounts.

As well as funding the EP, the band will also be donating a percentage of the money to breast cancer charity Keep-A-Breast.

Madina Lake aren’t the first band to try and raise money with a fan-funding website. Recently Public Enemy started a campaign to raise $250,000 to record a new album, but despite early interest the rap group have raised just $72,000 of the $250,000 they need.
