Found out about a competition Kiss is running (sponsored by Guitar Center) - bands are ranked by number of people who "demand" them on this website. The band then selects the winner from the bands that make the top 5. All you have to do is follow the link, select "Scranton Metro Area", and then click "Demand It" next to my band - Necromance.

Thanks in advance.

I did, even though your music would attract little or no Kiss fans.

Thanks. :confused:

I get what you're saying, I guess - but it depends on what you mean. I know a lot of people who like (or even love) Kiss that are fans of my band, because they actually like metal/hard rock music of all kinds. But yeah, to some old-school Kiss purist who only wants to hear other Rock bands like Kiss - practically no appeal. But I think it would be inaccurate to say most tour support is ever any better-matched or more appealing to die-hard fans of the headlining band than that.

Yeah, I wouldn't have said that if this was a spot opening for another certain band this summer :powerslav

KISS rarely pick support bands who suit their style anyway. The UK tour had Taking Dawn.

Sometimes they do though. Stockholm got Europe and Mustasch. Wish we'd had them.

You know you can 'demand' more than one band, right? :lol:

Voted. But you ain't lookin so good. 7th place and you need over 100 more votes.

1) We only need to finish in the top 5. The band selects the winner from the top 5 bands from each location.

2) The competition has a loooong way to go, which is both a bad and good thing I guess.

Ahaha.
Yeah, I did it, but they do trick you into much more clicking and typing than it apears to be. I figured just 'demanding it' would be enough, but nooo, you have to create and account and all that ;)

There are some bands there that have like 3x the ammount of votes you have, so I'd get to work if you really want to open for Kiss.

Thanks, because I didn't think about that myself. :lol:

I am using every outlet available to me to promote this. I can say with some degree of certainty that the bands with over 300 votes are spamming the contest (You can vote multiple times).

As I said, we only need to place in the top 5 to make it to the next round, in which the music actually counts for something. Not that that's an easy task at this point, but there's a lot of time left.
