Magnetic Eye Records Launches Kickstarter Campaign for Pink Floyd Tribute LP 'The Wall [Redux]'
New York independent music label Magnetic Eye Records has announced plans to release the Pink Floyd tribute album, The Wall [Redux], this spring. Featuring a veritable who's who of underground heavy music, the ambitious 26 track album is a part of the label's popular REDUX series, which focuses on iconic albums and invites bands to re-imagine and cover its songs from end to end. As with previous Magnetic Eye REDUX series releases, the project is fan-funded and will only see the light of day if it makes its pledged Kickstarter goal by March 5.
