Detroit rockers Sponge are touring the East Coast this April to promote their PledgeMusic Campaign which funds an upcoming summer tour and partially benefits Eastside Teen Outreach, a Michigan-based charity.

Sponge launched their 90-day PledgeMusic fundraising campaign on April 6, offering fans exclusive premiums in exchange for pledges. Premiums range from autographed copies of Sponge’s soon-to-be-released “Rotting Alive” CD (a live recording of the band’s classic Rotting Piñata record) to an opportunity to record a song with Sponge. Other highlights include private in-home shows, handwritten lyrics, videotaped music dedications, guitar lessons and even a personal guitar smashing on stage.

Less than 2 weeks into the campaign, Sponge has reached 51% of their goal. Some of the biggest names in music use PledgeMusic’s direct-to-fan music platform to release new material and fund creative projects, most notably Slash and Sevendust.

About Sponge:
Hailing from Detroit, Sponge gained widespread notoriety with their debut album "Rotting Piñata." Hits like "Plowed" and "Molly (16 Candles)" fueled massive airplay on radio stations from coast to coast and were in heavy rotation on MTV in the late 90's. After "Rotting Piñata" went Gold, the band toured internationally, and followed up with the critically lauded CD “Wax Ecstatic,” garnering additional hits "Wax Ecstatic" and "Have You Seen Mary?”

Sponge continued to tour nightclubs and festivals including Lollapalooza, and most recently, the wildly successful Summerland Tour with Everclear, Filter and Live. In late 2013, Sponge inked a deal with New York’s The End Records (Danzig, H.I.M.), unleashing their seventh studio release “Stop the Bleeding,” now available on Itunes, Amazon.comand Cdbaby.com

Sponge has rightfully earned a reputation as one of rock’s most magnetic live acts, with lead singer Vinnie Dombroski's powerful voice, heart-on-his- sleeve lyrics and full throttle stage captivating audiences the world over.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see Sponge LIVE and up close on the East Coast this April!

Sponge is celebrating 20 years of Detroit rock and roll and continuing their legacy via PledgeMusic. For a video retrospective of the band visit:
