Q:What is a street team?
A: A street team is a group of people working behind the scenes, and is a key element needed to make a band successful.
Q: Why should I join the Dust and Ashes street team?
A: We’ve been an independent band for over 7 years, and feel that we are at the point when a street team is the most crucial. We don’t have the funds, background team, or connections of a signed band, and we feel that is the main thing hurting us.
But that’s where you come in!
Withered Away is coming out soon, and it won’t be successful without you!
Q: What’s in it for me?
A: How much we give back greatly depends on our budget and how much we can raise for our album fundraiser, but we’ll definitely reward our hardest workers with some kind of perk.
Some perk ideas we’ve been discussing include: free merch, free tickets, underground show access, and your very own theme song or jingle written by Dust and Ashes. However, rewards are not guaranteed.
