January 2, 2015

WICHITA, KS - Abandon Kansas, the newest addition to the BC Music roster of artists, is announcing an update to its crowd-fund campaign, which seeks to raise $15,000 in order to produce its third full-length studio album. This ambitious campaign, which began one month ago, has already funded over 80% of its goal, and three days remain for fans to become a part of AK's story.

The on-going crowd-fund-which fans can find here: currently features packages that allow fans to take part in the living-room tour AK has planned, and, with 13 shows already booked, tickets are in high demand. The band has also added a perk that includes exclusive rough mixes of tracks off the forthcoming album, which are being recorded throughout the duration of the campaign. These tracks bring fans directly into the studio experience, allowing a unique look at the development of the album's sound as it evolves through the creative process. With the end of the campaign in sight, supporters are encouraged to get involved before the chance to hear these tracks passes. Additional homestretch packages include an international living-room show, a very limited quantity of private house or event shows, and a unique vocal package that allows supporters the chance to have their voices featured on a track of the album.

Abandon Kansas front-man, Jeremy Spring, was featured on a recent episode of The BadChristian Podcast ( During the interview, Spring's honesty led the discussion to a vulnerable place where he openly discussed the struggles that are influencing AK's new album. From juggling art with a new marriage, addictions to his own vanity and pride when touring, to the poor experiences AK had in the corporate music world-which Spring has described as, "Having my balls cut off"- and then the relief that came from moving into the independent music space. The interview provides fans with an intimate look at the reality behind a life in music.

Spring went into candid detail regarding the dark issues that have influenced the new album, saying:

"The road just makes it easy to drink too much, to smoke too much weed, to just get addicted to attention. And, then I come home and I'm supposed to listen to, and be affirmed by, and pay attention to one woman. And, just being addicted to my business, and vanity and pride. The depression comes from all the failures in that."

The success of the crowd-fund, which has raised over $12,000 so far, has served as fuel for the band's creative fire. On the support AK's fans have shown, Spring said:

"I've been trying my hardest to keep my mind off the campaign while I'm in the studio because I don't want the pressure to influence my head space for this album, but to be honest that's been impossible to avoid. Seeing our fans come through for us at such a pivotal moment has not only been encouraging, but is literally the only thing keeping this idea in motion. We are truly making this album together, at the exact same time, and there's a connection there I believe you'll hear on the album."

Abandon Kansas' indiegogo campaign concludes at midnight on January 5th, 2015. Stay tuned for more news from Abandon Kansas and BC Music.
