I've been surprised lately by the amount of interested in coming to my bands gigs lately and we've been attracting bigger crowds too! We were allocated 50 tickets for a gig we have this weekend and we've sold 30 in less than 3 days because of a (very bad) demo that everyone heard. It's pretty much up'd our game a little and more people are liking us on Facebook and asking us about our band.
So the other day, I emailed a very popular Glaswegian venue (not naming names, but it's pretty popular) with this very bad demo and right then and there we were asked to support some upcoming band that have played arena's and are even signed! Sadly, we had to turn the gig down. But we were surprised. We may even have the chance to go down to London and play a competition. One of the prizes being a slot at Download Festival. Fingers crossed!
If you want to hear this very bad demo, here's the link :
The actual recording is 10,000 times better. Trust me! This was done in very little time and with computers mainly (midi drums...).
We're trying to get a gig at a local music festival too so things are looking up!
