Electric Gypsy Bernie Tormé, former guitarist for Ian Gillan and Ozzy Osbourne, has released a track from his PledgeMusic-funded new album.
Bernie Tormé releases new track and announces tour
Legendary guitarist has released a brand new track, from his first solo album in 15 years
The new track, Crash ‘N’ Burn, is available now to all those who've pledged money to fund Bernie's new album. The album is the latest in a series of successful PledgeMusic campaigns, from the likes of Slash, Ginger Wildheart, Katatonia and The Hold Steady.
With 92 days to go, the campaign is 254% funded, but fans can still dip into their wallets to claim a series of rewards: £25 gets you a signed double CD, £100 gets you the opportunity to jam with the band at a forthcoming live show, while the extremely deep-of-pocket can fork over £66,000 for the 1964 Lake Placid Blue Stratocaster given to the guitarist by Ozzy Osbourne days after the death of Randy Rhodes. You'll be doing some good at the sometime: 10% of all pledges will be donated to Teenage Cancer Trust.
The guitarist says, "“I hope you become part of this album and pledge, and if so I thank you for your generosity and for your continued support over so many years - and thank you from my heart for enabling me to do the thing I love most, to make music for you”.
