American Revival is a self-described, punk-country band from Minneapolis. This isn’t your standard Nashville-style country at all though. This is an amazing combination of driving rock guitar, dynamic lyrics, and just a bit of twang thrown in that softens the vibe and makes the music just that much more relatable.
We actually had the chance to see American Revival live in Chicago and were blown away by their stage presence. American Revival brings energy that sucks the crowd into their every whim and direction. Girls are dancing. Guys are wishing they could be in the band. It’s a good time.
- Your first available date to tour (fan-driven tours only). Fans will only be able to create campaigns until 60-days, or 2-months, prior to your first tour date. For example, if your tour launches on May 8th and your first tour date is July 8th, fans will have one day to create campaigns. Fans will have 30-days to fund those campaigns. If your tour launches on May 8th and your first tour date is August 8th, fans will have 30-days (until June 8th) to create campaigns.
- Pledge Awards must increase in value with the pledge amounts. This is a PayPal requirement. They don’t want to support a ‘donation’ system, so the value of the tickets must increase with the awards. For example, you couldn’t offer one ticket to the show for $15 and also one ticket for $25. You’d have to throw in another ticket or album or something for the higher pledge award.
- Successful tours will be the ones with the most creative pledge awards and campaign videos. You don’t have to do a video, but, if you have the time, creating a video gives fans a new way to interact with you, provides legitimacy to your tour, and has been shown on Kickstarter to be a primary contributor of success. Cool & creative pledge awards are also a great way to get more pledges. Some of you have had some really cool ones so far. I’m excited to see what you come up with!
