In exciting news EDGE is being supported by an innovative, ambitious, and some say crazy campaign aiming to Storm The Charts in 2010. Their plan is to get 40 different unsigned bands into the top 40 chart in the same week!
On the Storm the Charts victory scale they ‘call a ‘success’ finding some good new music; a ‘win’ getting 2 or more songs in the charts, and anything above that is epic’.
Storm the Charts organiser, Wes White, set up a Justgiving page in support of EDGE because he felt that the outsider musicians raising money for overlooked unusual animals just made sense.
Enter a Band
Storm The Charts is still accepting entries for bands (over 140 have applied already!) so if you qualify enter by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading ‘For your consideration’. The final 40 bands will be chosen from all entries (up to the 1,000th band) by a mix of votes on Facebook and an expert panel, in preparation for the Storm The Charts week later in 2010.
Make a T-shirt
Storm The Charts are also teaming up with t-shirt printers Dizzyjam to supply the official t-shirts for the campaign, with the proceeds of the sales going to our amazing EDGE species. The official t-shirt will be chosen through a design competition. The closing date for entries it the Sunday, March 14th so there is still time to enter ; take a look at the design guidelines, and send your entries to email@example.com.
So a huge thank you to both Storm the Charts and Dizzyjam for their support, now get designing, and why not listen to an original unsigned band while you think…?
