District 97 Crowdfunding Upcoming Tour

(Prog) District 97 have launched a crowdfunding campaign to assist with paying for their planned UK tour in March and a series of mainland Europe dates in April of next year.

It follows the announcement of a new lineup, with bassist Tim Seisser and keyboardist Andrew Lawrence replacing Patrick Mulcahy and Rob Clearfield respectively.

The band last year funded the release of third album 'In Vaults' with the support of fans. District 97 say: "All the puzzle pieces are in place and we are ready to come play for you. The question becomes, how can we do this without losing our necks?

"Back when the music industry was booming, record labels used to bankroll world tours and provide bands with booking agents who would sort out all the particulars. That model has all but evaporated.

"So we humbly come before you yet again, and ask that you join us in helping us spread District 97 music near and far. Your pledge will help us thrive as a band and significantly widen our fan base - which can lead to more opportunities in the future)." Read more here.
