Fuel Starts Online Campaign For Limited Edition Vinyl Album


wants a little help from its friends, and fans, in putting out its new album, "Puppet Strings," on vinyl.

The group has launched a PledgeMusic campaign to raise money for a limited edition, 180-gram vinyl edition of the set, with a number of incentives including an additional digital download of the album, a signed artwork poster, a songwriting session with frontman Brett Scallions for a $7,500 pledge and a private home concert by Fuel for $75,000.

In a statement announcing the campaign, Scallions says that, "The best way to listen to music is on the warm sound of vinyl. I grew up listening to music this way, in a small town in Tennessee, surrounded by the sounds of Elvis Presley, Tina Turner, all of the great blues and rock and roll coming out of Memphis, as well as the country music just a few hours away in Nashville. There is nothing better than hearing the needle hit the record...I'm honored to have this record printed in such a format."

"Puppet Strings" came out March 4 and is Fuel's first new album in seven years and first with Scallions since 2003. The group is currently on tour.
