Storm the Charts is doing something different for music – raising the profile of new and independent bands and their songs, with the aim of getting them into the charts. More than 500 bands and musicians have put themselves forward, and through an interactive facebook group and online voting 40 bands are being picked to see how many can get in the top 40 chart in the same week.
You have just 9 days left to vote for bands you want to see in the charts, so pick your favourites here: http://stormthecharts.com/
And join the facebook group for updates!
Once the final 40 bands have been announced the campaign will build up to a download week, starting on June 27th. This is when everything is going to get frantic – members of the facebook group (and beyond) will download their favourite of the chosen 40 songs, and the hope is that even one of the Storm the Charts ‘top 40’ gets into the national top 40 singles chart.
We’d like to thank the campaign, which has already raise over £1,000 for EDGE conservation projects, and can’t wait to hear the final line-up for the download week. It is getting very exciting!
In the words of campaign leader, Wes White ‘Like the musicians in our polls, the animals EDGE supports are often overlooked, sometimes strange and sometimes beautiful.’
