Chuck Ragan and The Camaraderie are calling on artists to create original pieces inspired by Chuck Ragan’s new album Till Midnight.

Selected artists will be featured on Chuck Ragan’s official website and social networks. In addition, limited edition merchandise that was inspired by their art will be featured and sold on Ragan’s website. Submission deadline is Wednesday, April 30th. So if you think you got what it takes, well you only have 2 days to do since we like to post news that’s a bit outdated. Whatever, we’re lazy and have jobs.
“While making Till Midnight, we were so focused on the sound of the record, but every song tells a story,” explains bassist and music director Joe Ginsberg. “I’m so amped up to see how artists relate to these stories and what art comes out as a result!”
