Rockers Live are to release their first album in eight years with new singer Chris Shinn, and they're asking fans to help.

Shinn replaced Ed Kowalczyk in 2012, and his first album with the band is scheduled to hit stores and the Internet in October (14).

The release will coincide with the 20th anniversary of the group’s Throwing Copper album, and original members Chad Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Gracey have launched a Pledge Music campaign to help cover costs.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit charity Musicians On Call.
