Getting around from city to city can be expensive for a band, so Unreal City are reaching out for help from the people who love their music. They've launched a crowd-funding project to get them going on the road in 2015.

From the press release:
Italian progressive rockers, Unreal City ask progressive rock fans to back crowd-funding appeal for a tour planned for 2015. The band released their debut album La Crudelta Di Aprile in 2013, and are currently working on its follow-up which will be released in January 2015 on AMS Records.
They have recently started an Indiegogo campaign, that would bring the band on the road in 2015 to promote their upcoming release. For many interesting perks log on to the campaign page on THIS LOCATION.
The band commented: "Your help will get us touring in a lot of countries and hopefully we'll schedule a date near to your hometown! But no worries, we'll be on tour even if we don't reach our goal, your help won't be wasted in any case. The only difference will be the amount of dates in the tour and the number of countries reached!"
