We are currently running for a top 100 spot in a competition where 8 winners get to play at the legendary Download Festival. We have come from 499th to 183rd in just a few days, but the top spots are now very close, so it is even harder to climb the ranks.

So, we need all of your help to vote for us if we have a chance of making it. I was thinking of places to try and get publicity and figured The Pit on UG would be seen by the kind of rockers we want to appeal to, so PLEASE PLEASE vote for us and we would be enormously grateful.

Thank you.

P.S. if you can get your mates to vote then that'd be amazing, but at least one vote from each of you would help massively.

Hmm well if we got through then I guess it'd be a great stepping-stone for our careers which would therefore hopefully get our music to your ears sooner

I don't think Download is the festival for you.

If you're not even a regular in the Pit I don't know why you think any of us would vote for you.
#10
I voted foe another band that I liked. Partially because I hate these threads, but I'm going to Download, and sod's law is that when there's no-one i want to see on the other stages, that's when the slot you'd get would be, and I'd rather listen to a band I can tolerate whilst standing at the nearby Guinness pop up bar.
#11
See, you're one of those people that registers for the site, doesn't ever make any real contributions, and then thinks they can just come waltzing in and expect people to help them out. That's really just rude.

Your music probably sucks anyway and even if you did do this you're still not going to have a career in music with your shitty (and probably bland and generic) band.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Firstly, your first point doesn't make sense. How is it rude at all? I merely ASKED for your help, I didn't expect it of you.

Secondly, you're making intentionally insulting comments without even listening to us. And your point about not having a career in it? Haha. I can only wait to prove it to you. Just remember the name, that's all.

I don't know why you're all being cocks about this. I'm merely somebody that's trying to get my band out there and you're complaining about me not being a regular, demanding votes etc. If you're not going to vote for us, that's fine, but I don't see the need in flaming about it. Jesus.

No, you're someone who's band doesn't cut it, so in a desperate attempt to grab something, you're resorting to begging a bunch of strangers on the internet to help you, rather than just relying on the strength of your music.

Which you apparently have no faith in, since you're begging for help.

I've changed my mind. After seeing all the pittards get all worked up, I've decided to lend my support to your cause. Also, I wanna extend an offer to your band to set up and play a show at my sisters 29th bday party in June. I can pay you in beer. You can set up on the tennis court.

Keep rocking, or whatever it is you do.

I read all the flaming and felt that you definitely didn't deserve any votes. Then I listened to your band...


... how did you guys manage 184th position on this list? Who even put you on this list?

Stop wasting your money, this isn't going anywhere. I'll never see your name in fame unless you guys change it and some actually good band rolls around and uses it instead. However, just because of your douchiness in this post, you pretty much repelled anyone from voting for you even if they were slightly thinking about it.

Hope your band never plays a show again !

it is our sole ambition to create music loved by the masses,but music still containing artistic value.

also, 'band' is a collective, singular noun

I have loads of faith in our music, I wouldn't be in the band if I didn't. But without people knowing about our band, there's only so far we can go.

Furthermore, about us being "a band that doesn't cut it"? Seeing as we have been together for only 6 months, we have progressed phenomenally. Look at our YouTube profile and see our material before you judge us on one single song. Personally, I would have chosen 'Erase' by us, but that's beside the point.

I would appreciate and respect your opinion if you, or anybody else, explained WHY you didn't like our sound, but I actually take no notice of people that give the opinions you do, just as those that just say, "you're good" and that's it. I actually want to hear feedback, otherwise we'll never improve, and seeing as this is our ultimate and single career choice, progressing is essential.

The music and vocals definitely need work and its not really suitable for Download Festival so for your own sakes, it wouldnt be a good idea to win. This is more for Reading or something.

Yeah I know what you mean, although considering the competition came up I didn't think it wise to pass it up, as it is an extremely rare opportunity. But yeah thanks for your feedback.
#27
See, if you were a pit regular you would know that these guys always get their panties in a twist when people ask for shit like this. I'll give you a little credit that you didn't just register yesterday or anything though.

You guys mixed that yourselves didn't you. It sounds okay I guess, I feel like I would actually kinda like it if it was mixed better. Vocalist has an interesting style. I would vote for you if it didn't require facebook stuff. I don't want spam and shit.

Oh, and even if you guys made like #1 on this contest list they would probably just put you on a tiny ass shitty stage with barely enough room to stand, through you in some forgotten corner of the festival area, and like 4 people would come watch you play. I haven't been to Download but at other festivals thats how things like this always seem to turn out. You're better off just playing regular local shows, because it will be less work and more people will go to see you.

Because you joined in '10 and have only posted 7 times (and aren't a Pit regular). That's why I'm not voting for you.

You wouldn't just go up to a random stranger on the street and ask them for help, would you? But here's the thing: with random strangers, you would at least have a clean slate. With us... not so much. You registered for the site, didn't post anything for three years, and then show up expecting us to help you.

And what, did you ask us for help expecting us to specifically not help you? If anything doesn't make sense, it would be that.

And no, you're never going to make it, especially with that kind of attitude.

Look buddy, every moron to ever start a band has "[had] loads of faith in [their] music" unless they were some sort of joke/parody band. Just because you like your music doesn't mean it's any good.

And honestly, "[progressing] phenomenally" after six months don't mean shit.

See, you've made the mistake of thinking that because you like your band and think that you're the greatest thing since sliced bread you automatically deserve to have success delivered your way. Guess what? Pretty much everybody else has thought that too. What makes you so special?

Seriously, get over yourself.

Oh it doesn't come up on your newsfeed when you vote. So you won't spam. But thanks for the feedback about the mix.

Yeah the Red Bull stage is the smallest of them, but still it's all experience and will be the first outdoor stage we've played (that is if we get through). But yeah we still do play as many local shows around London as we can and generally get decent crowds.

I don't believe that at all, I fully understand it takes loads of hard work and am more than willing to do that.

Exactly. Everybody begins like that, and it's the ones that continue this belief throughout that separate themselves from the rest. I can only show you where we are this time in 5 years.

It's a valid reason because you come here expecting help from us, when we know you posted very little and have not been active on the site. It's like joining a free social club, then never coming to meetings, and later on expecting them to help you out. They'd be like, "Why? You didn't even bother to be social with us." If a Pit regular or someone who had a 1000+ posts asked for help, I'd do it without hesitation.

Since the majority here have been pretty uninviting, I will be honest and say I like your sound. It's kinda raw. Suitable for Download? Probably not however.

You're more on the soft side of Alt Rock from what I heard, like to compare, Arctic Monkeys. Don't think they'd get many behind them if they went to Download.

But I know what you mean, you want to make your band be seen which is understandable. And lighter bands have played Download.

But yeah, you kinda came to the wrong place.

Good luck anyways.
