Public Enemy raise $75,000 to fan-fund new record

Influential political hip hop group Public Enemy have completed the fundraising round begun earlier this year. The band aimed to raise $75,000 (€59,100) via Frontman Chuck D. posted this notice:

We just received word that our fund raising campaign has completed. This is truly a great moment for us and we owe it all to our [fans] on SellaBand – our true ‘Believers.’ As the title of this entry suggests, it has been a long and winding road. We’ve had explosive starts, media attention, corporate troubles, media criticism, recalculations and finally resurgence. When its all said and done, the bottom line is that we never lost faith in ourselves, our fams and the future of fan funding as a model.

The band had different offers for contributors including a copy of the album, a download and a revenue share along with more elaborate packages like a studio visit for €7,880.00 ($11069) The as yet untitled album will follow 2007’s How You Sell Soul To A Soulless People Who Sold Their Soul?. The band has already promised collaborations with Rise Against and Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine.
