MESSAGE TO VENUS SUCCESSFULLY FUNDS "VICTIMS & VILLAINS" INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN, RELEASES NEW SINGLE "HOLLOW" ON ITUNES
Debut album "Victims & Villains" due out early 2015
MIAMI, FL - Florida's 21st Century rock outfit, Message To Venus, has successfully completed a two month Indiegogo campaign to help fund the release and promotion of its debut album, Victims & Villains. The campaign, which spanned July and August, helped generate over $11,000 through fan support. While Victims & Villains will officially release in early 2015, fans who contributed to the crowd-funding campaign receive an advance copy of the new album along with other special 'perks,' including a limited-edition Message To Venus comic book and more.
"We're blown away by all the support we received through our Indiegogo campaign," said guitarist John Feliciano. "Fans really embraced the new album and comic book projects. We can't thank everyone that contributed enough!"
During the course of the Indiegogo campaign, Message To Venus launched a brand newVictims & Villains track, "Hollow," which is now available on iTunes at:https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/hollow-single/id915178929.
"Hollow" is also streaming on Soundcloud at:https://soundcloud.com/messagetovenus/hollow/s-Y5YIu.
"'Hollow' is a track about living the life you want," vocalist/guitarist, Jandre Nadal, recently told Revolver. "Making your own choices as a person, not following a shadow of what someone wants for you. This song has a powerful chorus. A lot of people can relate to this subject."
Victims & Villains was recorded in the band's native San Juan, Puerto Rico with producer, Leo Alvarez.

The upcoming album follows the 2011 EP, 'The Envelope,' which, along with lead single, "Universal You," drew praise from established artists such as Godsmack and Halestorm while receiving weekly spins at SiriusXM Octane, MusicChoice and more. "Universal You" was also featured in the motion picture, The Witness (El Testigo). Stream the "Universal You" music video on YouTube at: http://youtu.be/oMoWsoDRSHo.
Following the release of 'The Envelope,' Message To Venus made the decision to relocate from San Juan to Miami, Fla. "Puerto Rico is beautiful...it's our home," explained Feliciano. "We play there as often as we can, but in order to expand globally we want to be planted on soil where touring opportunities are more frequent."
After being nominated for a Latin Rock Award in the 'Slam Alternativo/Rock' category in 2012, as well as participation in the International Day of Non-Violence, Message To Venus successfully employed the help of fans through a crowd-funding campaign and toured the U.S. in 2013. The quartet is now working of booking tour dates to support the 2015 album.
