Slash is the latest artist to bypass the traditional major label model and opt for the fan-funded alternative. The Guns N' Roses guitar hero is using PledgeMusic to raise money for his next project.
Slash is a co-producer of the movie Nothing Left To Fear and is asking fans to contribute to the costs of the soundtrack via PledgeMusic.
In a statement at PledgeMusic Slash says:
As a co-producer of both the motion picture Nothing Left To Fear and the soundtrack to the film, I’ve been heavily involved in every step of the creation of both the film and the score. I’ve decided to make this soundtrack exclusively available on PledgeMusic as a way to gain a more personal interaction with you guys, the fans. I am a huge fan of horror films ever since i was a little kid in England, and now I’m excited to share the process of what goes into creating projects like this.Fans can fund Slash at pledgemusic.com/artists/slash.
Anyone who pledges will not only have access to behind the scenes interviews, early looks at soundtrack art, and exclusive signed items, but you will also have access to a live chat where I’ll answer some of your questions about the film, the score, and everything that’s been happening along the way. As a bonus, we’re going to give you one song from the soundtrack as soon as you pledge.
