InMe – Album & 35 Date Tour For 2012

InMe are an English alternative rock band based in Brentwood, Essex. They have toured with the likes of Limp Bizkit, Pendulum, Deftones, Serj Tankian, Staind, Feeder and Biffy Clyro; they have also played main stages and packed tents at respected festivals such as Reading, Sonisphere, Download & Summer Breeze.

 

To date, the band has released 4 highly successful studio albums spawning a number of Top 40 UK singles. Their 5th studio album, “The Pride”, will be the first to be released via Pledge Music – allowing the fans to involve themselves in the release process, enabling the band to connect with them and help a cause of their choice. Having worked with Pledge Music on his debut solo album earlier this year, frontman Dave McPherson is in no doubt that it’s the best route to take:

"Pledge Music enabled me to take my solo music to a whole new level. It brought me closer to my supporters & helped finance the whole campaign whilst raising £2000 for Save The Children. I’ve been excited about InMe’s Pledge Music campaign for far too long, it’s like waiting for Christmas when you’re a kid! We have around 70 incentives including ‘The Pride’ album, ‘Elysium: Overgrown Eden Live’ DVD, personalised songs, house party gigs, a massive merch range, handwritten lyric sheets & loads more. Mine & Greg’s Grandfather passed away earlier this year due to complications from Alzheimer’s Disease so we’ll be donating a portion of the funds raised to the Alzheimer’s Society to help combat this terrible condition for the future. Some of our management team have also had to deal with Alzheimer’s first hand so it’s a charity the whole team feels warmly about.”

The InMe of today is a very different animal to that of their 2003 debut album "Overgrown Eden". Their continued evolution has maintained a fiercely loyal fanbase and challenged them further as musicians with the release of every album. Following on from “White Butterfly” (2005), “Daydream Anonymous” (2007) and “Herald Moth” (2009) the band released "Phoenix – The Best of InMe" in 2010: this celebrated their career so far and featured exclusive tracks that showcased InMe’s progression from their early days, when they had been thrust into the spotlight as teens. Over seven years on from first discovering the band, Kerrang! Magazine witnessed a full tent at Sonisphere Festival as “fans old and new celebrate a band who lion heartedly refuse to die”. Later in 2010 InMe packed out The Relentless Garage in London for 4 album shows to crown a year that proved beyond doubt that they were alive, well and very much wanted by the UK alternative rock scene.

Rolling on to 2011, InMe kept quiet until their triumphant return to Sonisphere Festival: this time the tent was bigger, and once again full to capacity, as 5000 people crammed into Bohemia to see them rock as hard as ever. The temptation could have been to head straight out on tour; instead they spent the time writing what would become “The Pride” – their finest work to date.

InMe’s Pledge Music campaign began on Friday 25th November 2011 and exceeded 100% within the first week. As well as the music itself being available in various formats, there will be a large number of incentives for the fans to purchase: signed memorabilia and merchandise, ‘Come Dine with InMe’, poker with Greg, acoustic covers from Dave, DJ sets from Gazz, session drumming from Simon and personalized items are just a handful of the incentives that fans can get involved with.

The digital download of “The Pride” will be available on all platforms (including an iTunes exclusive) from Sunday 19th February 2012; the physical release will be available from Monday 20th February 2012, on vinyl, CD and CD/DVD combo (the live DVD of “Overgrown Eden” will be available separately). All of these items are available to preorder via Pledge Music from Friday 25th November 2011.

InMe will embark on a 35-date tour of the UK & Ireland, beginning on Wednesday 22nd 

February and ending on Saturday 31st March at Islington Academy.
