New album HEART starts strong in Canada, Hitting #1 Album in Inspirational and cracking iTunes Top 40 Albums Chart
On the heels of the highly successful Canadian release of their anticipated sophomore release, HEART, which quickly topped the Inspirational charts and cracked into the overall iTunes Top Albums chart Top 40, The City Harmonic are announcing The CityBus Project. With this project the band aims to raise the money needed to purchase a tour bus in the next 30 days. As posted on the band’s IndieGoGo site:
“In late 2011 our bassist, Eric Fusilier, was diagnosed with a form of Leukemia that sidelined him for 18 months while he fought for his life. During this time we pushed through together as a band and community and to support him financially and emotionally through that time. And now, having beat the cancer that nearly killed him we would love for Eric to be able to return without hesitation to the ministry he helped to start. And this is exactly what he wants too!
You see, over the past couple years we’ve played nearly 300 shows. This often meant driving through the night in our white conversion 11-seater to get there. This might sound kind of rock-and-roll but with Eric recovering from his bout with cancer, sleep is an important part of his recovery. In other words this isn’t going to work out as it is! Not to mention that with 300,000 miles on it, the van itself doesn’t have much longer to go. As married guys with kids, we’re also pretty excited at the potential for our families to be more involved in this ministry as well!
We’ve come across a tour bus that will be exactly what we need and is priced at an affordable $70,000 (for a vehicle like this – it’s an insane price). We’ve tried it and had it looked over and are very confident it will do the trick!
So we’re here asking for your help to raise a down payment of $30,000 in order to get us started!
By getting involved you’ll be making it possible for Eric to return to the band, for our ministry to continue in a financially sustainable way, and for our families to spend more time together as we do it!”
