James M. House- producer, composer, and more of Squanky Kong -
announced this new year that a special Remix EP has been put together
to accompany the recent teaming with SellaBand. A suite of five songs
from the previous album "Under a Raven's Review" have been compiled,
remixed, and remastered. The new EP is slated to be titled "Raven Rock
Remixes". Through SellaBand, Squanky Kong has started a fundraiser to
raise $40,000 to record and release the next full-length album. Though
technically setup a few months back, House decided to keep the
fundraiser under the radar while the EP and related marketing plan was
organized. The official launch of the fundraiser will be January 15th,
2010, at which time the "Digital Only" EP is going to be provided free
of charge to those that invest the minimum $10.00. Meanwhile other
incentives have been setup to those that invest in amounts beyond the
minimum. The EP is also planned to be offered for sale online at
iTunes by March 16th, 2010 .

SellaBand is based in Amsterdam, the creative capital of Europe. Since
its launch in August 2006, they have helped independent bands to raise
money for recording albums. Over $3,000,000 has been invested. With
SellaBand, artists retain complete ownership of the works created.
SellaBand's fan funding engine also allows artists the freedom to
enter into deals with any label, management company, or publisher and
there are no advances to pay back. Artists maintain control over their
career and have 100% freedom to create the music that they want to
create. SellaBand can also be utilized by management companies, record
labels, publishers, sponsors and media companies to fund projects for
their own artists while also building the core fan base required to
launch an artist or take them to the next stage of their career.
