MODERN DAY MOONSHINE BEGINS FREE "BOOTLEGGERS" CLUB FOR FANS
With the release of their new studio album Refuge (Ripple Music) just weeks away, blues/soul/rock trio Modern Day Moonshine announce the launch of their free fan interactive "MDM Bootleggers” Club
Spread across the bands' newly redesigned website and social media, the project allows "MDM Bootleggers" to access a new song every Tuesday. With a catalogue of songs reaching well into the hundreds, the streaming mp3's will range from demos and live performances to previously unreleased studio tracks, and will feature exclusive photos and updates from the band. Fans will be polled each month to choose their favorite tracks, with the winners being compiled into a special edition “Bootlegger Album” that will be available as a download only.
Offered free to all MDM fans, the only “cost” to join is their word of mouth. Operated much like the charity candy display at a gas station cash register, MDM is using the honor system of holding fans accountable to helping spread the word. In return for their efforts, MDM Bootleggers will have access to all new material as well as contests, giveaways and free tickets to upcoming shows.
Commented drummer David Burrows "These tunes need to be heard, and we want the fans to determine a unique album. This is the quickest way to get them out. We're really looking forward to hooking up our fans for helping spread the Modern Day Moonshine name."
Modern Day Moonshine's Refuge will see a November 23rd release through Ripple Music.
