Indie Band Pays Fans To Download Album

PHILADELPHIA, PA (Hypebot) –
As part of a marketing campaign motivated by tough economic times and a cluttered music marketplace, Indie rock band Officer Roseland is paying fans $1 to download their new album from the website MyStimulusPackage.org.

The band will offer fans two options: The first called "TAKE" pays $1 to download the album Stimulus Package. The second "GIVE" donates that $1.00 to the charity Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation. In either case, the fan receives the album at no cost to them.

Formed in 2000, Officer Roseland is a 4 piece independent rock band from Philadelphia, PA. The band has recorded 4 studio albums, has had music featured in independent films and animations and toured internationally.

Stimulus Package is an album with a distinctly satirical edge, skewering the commercialism of the recording industry – and of American society at large – with a warped sense of humor that is the band's signature. "We were definitely aware of the thematic tone the album was taking on pretty early in the writing process" said Daidone.
