Ron Keel has launched a 60 day PledgeMusic campaign that gives fans access to downloads, updates, and exclusive music/merchandise/memorabilia packages as well as his forthcoming new album ‘Metal Cowboy,’ due on January 28th. The new album features many special guests and will coincide with the release of Ron’s autobiography ‘Even Keel: Life On The Street Of Rock & Roll,’ which is sure to be a fantastic read.
Ron said the following on his website:
This PledgeMusic campaign gives me the opportunity to offer a variety of exclusive music/merchandisememorabilia packages!
The music sounds just like the title implies – METAL COWBOY – hard & heavy with a southern side. Kind of like if AC/DC made a Skynyrd album – gritty screaming vocals, powerful rock riffs, but with some classic southern rock elements like Frank Hannon’s slide guitar. All drum tracks were performed by Y&T’s Mike Vanderhule; other special guests include Oz Fox (Stryper), Brent Muscat (Faster Pussycat), Geno Arce & Bryan Jay from KEEL, Stacey Blades from L.A. Guns, and a “live in-studio” recording with the Sin City Sinners.
The album, available as a digital download and Deluxe Edition CD with bonus tracks, will be released January 28, simultaneously with my long-awaited autobiography “Even Keel: Life On The Streets Of Rock & Roll.” The CD, book, and other merchandise and fan exclusives (including rare memorabilia, Master Class voice lessons via Skype, and even House Concerts) are available in various bundles via the PledgeMusic campaign.
PledgeMusic gives me a total state-of-the-art marketing and distribution platform to share everything with the fans. It’s an online store, it’s a social network where we can exchange comments and messages, there’s a music player where people can listen to audio clips from the album, plus my weekly radio show. I want people to really feel like they are a part of this with me.”
