Band breaks away from label - Massive indiegogo $ucce$$

This emphatically underscores the dramatic changes that are taking place in the way business is done thanks to crowdfunding and also clearly shows the potential for what can be achieved from here on out as to how things will be done.

A group from Canada called Protest The Hero recently fulfilled their contracts with record labels and have turned to their fans to fund their fourth full-length album.

Within hours of launching, the band smashed through it’s $125,000 goal and is on its way to doubling that total! Currently they're at $228,315 and there's still 24 days left to the campaign!

Is this the future of business for musicians, artists, entrepreneurs, the tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor?

You got that right! It's a new day and a new way! 8-)
