Hello there Ultimate Guitar.

I have been a patron of yours for many years now and now I am asking for your help.

We are enduring an economic downturn and it is increasingly hard to get gigs. My band has a chance at scoring a gig with Dark Tranquility in London.

We have been shortlisted as one of the bands to support them but it's gone down to a public vote.

I myself and the rest of the band find this cheesy but that's the way they choose to do this.

What I am asking is you vote for us UG, this could get the ball rolling for us and score us lots of gigs in the future.

A sample of us live at our first gig.

Simply click the link, enter your email and vote, you can do this daily. So please keep voting guys.

You can use this thread to discuss how hard it is in this climate to get gigs, and the cheesiness of this public voting!

I'm trying but either I'm an idiot or your link isn't working the way you intended it to be.

also give us a myspace or something so we can give your stuff a listen.

Odd, it works for me.

You get a page with a white space and a vote button?

For me, it just takes me to what appears to be Century Media's main site.

EDIT: Yeah, pretty much what everyone else is getting.
#9
Ah god the song player is broken ....... Contacting the dude who runs our site to get it fixed asap.

http://www.centurymedia.com/votingdetailed.aspx?IdVoting=6

It may have some filter in place to only allow UK votes for the UK gig.

Thats a link to the list of bands.

Edit : I added a youtube link to some video footage of our bands first gig.

Audio quality and Video quality isn't brilliant but will have to do for now :s

Thanks to those of you who have voted so far.

I don't believe in public votes myself as they do not reflect the music at all, simply the bands capacity to pull people together to vote. So I apologise for it having to be this way!

Got some Holy Divers myself. Absolutely love them. I just wish it didn't take a month to make and ship across the pond.

Why are you selling your music if you're unsigned? If I were you, I'd be making hundreds of free copies and giving them to everyone on the street, begging everyone you can to listen to you. Would certainly help you get known, and more popular.

Anyway, voted, you guys seem good enough. A better quality video/working myspace would be cool though.

Voted and good luck man.

I think you might be critising them for doing a public vote thing unfairly, because from their point of view their gonna please the most possible people and should you win youll get extra attention for having been the public choice rather than some support act that people might not even bother watching.
SMILE!

Why would anyone listen to a CD the people who made it valued at nothing?

Why not? Most people get their music through free (and illegal) methods anyway.

The grammar would have been correct if I had spelt it right. People illegally download stuff they are already interested in not at random, and they know they are getting it free but it does have a percieved value that the enjoy not paying. If this band suddenly decides it doesn't want to make money and gives CD's out for free no one will care because they have no indication its anything but worthless this coupled with the fact that most people will not enjoy being approached and asked to listen to something will mean people wont get a positive first impression and probably wont listen to the CD.

tl;dr then i dont care what you think.
SMILE!

I still can't find the voting thing.
Eh, I'll keep looking.

I went to the Dark Tranquility website and that's how I found it.
Links for people having problems. If anyone else is.

http://www.centurymedia.com/votingdetailed.aspx?IdVoting=6

I don't get it, I think those are the same links.


Either way I voted. Good luck man.

Exactly, I've been given loads of free CD's in the past and never once have I actually listened to one, I've listened to all of the ones I've bought though.

On topic, that Youtube vid was pretty good so I voted, good luck man
