VERSA Frontwoman Updates Fans on New Album Status


It’s been over a year since VERSA (formerly VersaEmerge) released any new material, even though they had promised fans that they would be working on some new music since the slight taste they from the duo’s Neon EP.

In the year since the three-song album was released, the band have been quiet with no information on whether or not they were currently working on new music or if they had called it a day. Now, after such a long pause, it seems the duo might be working on some new material.

In response to a question a fan posted on Tumblr, frontwoman Sierra Kusterbeck revealed that they would be starting a crowdfundng campaign to help fund their new full-length album; the first full-length under their new name.

“hi! thanks for being a long time fan of the music. of course we want to come to brazil, we’re always mentioning it when we talk about touring. just need to release the rest of our music and then get it in the works. we plan to do a crowd funding campaign for our full length and extra money will get us down to brazil for sure! <3”

Back in 2013, fans of VersaEmerge were given a big shock when the band abruptly dropped off of the Vans Warped Tour. Soon after the departure from the traveling rock show, news hit that the band had been dropped from Fueled by Ramen even though no actual reason was given. Following that, they deleted all social media accounts associated with VersaEmerge and re-emerged with new social media accounts for VERSA.

We The Kings Get Completely Funded for New Album


We the Kings have joined a long list of musicians who have taken to crowd sourcing site to help fund the production of a new album. In the past we have seen many people use sites such as Kickstater and IndieGoGo to help them fund projects that might be out of reach with out the help of some giving souls.

In the past we have seen some major wins such as the Veronica Mars campaign which managed to get the full $2 million in less than 24 hours, Zac Braff’s Wish I Was Here, but with the wins do in fact come some fails such as Eisley’s attempt as well as actresses/musicians Zoisa and Clara Mamet.  Unlike those unfortunate artists in the past, the Florida-based band managed to make their goal amount in not time at all.

The band had originally made their goal amount $35,000, to fund the making on their yet untitled fourth album. What came as a surprise to the band and probably nay-sayers against this type of funding, the band managed to make all that money and more in less than 19 hours.

As of the last time that their campaign had been checked, the band had gotten a staggering $52,070 and keep in mind, that the band still has 30 days left in their effort campaign.

If you’re feeling the giving mood at the moment then head on over the site here, or if you just want to see what hardcore fans they have.
