CITY OF FIRE, the band featuring Burton C. Bell (FEAR FACTORY), bassist Byron Stroud (FEAR FACTORY, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD), guitarist Terry “Sho” Murray, and drummer Bob Wagner, will enter the studio this week to begin recording its sophomore album.
Funding for the CD was aided by the PledgeMusic.com project, which encourages fans to contribute funds to the recording of albums and the artists themselves to donate to charity as a part of their fundraising.
The pledge campaign will continue for another month to secure funding for final mixes.
CITY OF FIRE will release a new single in 35 days, and a promotional video for the track will be made as well.
The response to PledgeMusic.com campaign has been very positive from the fans. The band is currently at 187 percent of its goal, with over 60 pledges.
40 different portals, web sites and blogs have mentioned the campaign.
Recorded at renowned Factory Studios in Vancouver in late 2008 with additional material completed in April of this year, CITY OF FIRE‘s self-titled debut CD featured fourteen songs, including remakes of THE CULT‘s “Rain” and T.REX‘s “Children Of The Revolution”. It also includes the band’s video for the song/single “Rising”.
