FORTUNATE FREAKS UNITE!....Hello Beautiful People,....As you may have heard, we are working on a brand new Rusted Root album right now. We've started off by playing a bunch of new songs at our live shows, and have gotten some great feedback. Many of you are ecstatic about the new material and so are we. Soon we will start laying down those songs and more in the studio and we're shooting for a March 2012 release for the new album. ....You have always been extremely supportive and gracious in all of our endeavors, and we THANK YOU for all the love and loyalty that helps us continue to do all that Rusted Root does! The music industry has changed so much over the last many years and we've been able to weather the storms only because of YOU! ....We have been on our own independent record label now for quite a few years, and we've been funding all of our albums by ourselves, which is truly a challenge. This time, we are asking you to be a part of the Rusted Root team, and help us put out this new album. We've just launched our new album campaign: "FORTUNATE FREAKS UNITE: WE ARE RUSTED ROOT" and we're offering a bunch of sponsorship levels with great perks including some very cool once in a lifetime opportunities with Rusted Root. Each package ranges in price and items so you can choose what you are most interested in! Perks vary from digital items to signed memorabilia to private online shows, to having Rusted Root play live in your living room! All of the money we raise will go directly to the creation of the next Rusted Root album. No record labels, no management or agent commissions, no cushy massages, candy bars or frou frou spa treatments. We know that not everyone can afford all of the packages, but we really appreciate any contribution to the cause! Every dollar is a dollar more than we had before..."....Please consider becoming part of our FORTUNATE FREAKS MOVEMENT, we would be forever grateful, seriously!....Thanks again for all you do for us. WE ARE BLESSED TO HAVE YOU AS FANS!!!!!....Michael, Liz & Patrick....
Bad News All - we hate to be the bearer of bad news:
We regret to inform you that tonight’s performance of Rusted Root at Sugarloaf in Carrabassett Valley, ME, has been cancelled. Rusted Root is a Pittsburgh-based band, and due to the massive winter weather event taking place in the mid-Atlantic, airports from Ohio to North Carolina have rapidly restricted air travel. As a result, the band is unable to reach Sugarloaf in time for tonight’s concert.
