If you’re Canadian who came of age musically in the alt-rock 90s, then you’ll remember Rusty, the Toronto indie four-piece that was beloved by guitar fans. They cranked out songs like this.
After a five-year run, they played a farewell show in November 2000 and the members scattered. That hiatus lasted until 2011 when they were asked to play some reunion shows for NXNE. Those went well enough for people to start asking when they might release a new album.
After being badgered, the Rusty decided to pull it together again. They’ve been “sneaking into a Toronto studio” to record demos for new material all while looking for ways to fund a new album. That’s always tricky.
Enter PledgeMusic. There’s a new campaign underway that’s asking fans to contribute to the cause. You can tip as little as $15 (that’ll get you some digital downloads) to $5,000 (which will secure a show at your house.)
Here’s a chance to relive your post-grunge 90s youth.
