My Band - 'Van Susans' .....**Live at IndigO2 Sat 16th April**

edited November 2010 in Not Sports Related
A week tomorrow, on December 6th, my band's single is being released on iTunes, Amazon etc... and I thought it was time to do some promoting amongst my fellow Addicks!
We're called Van Susans and our single's called Bones. There's a little article about us on the front page of the News Shopper website at the mo. (http://www.newsshopper.co.uk/news/8705703.CONEY_HALL__Band_s_new_single_inspired_by_singer_falling_from_girlfriend_s_bedroom_window/)#

We're an indy band of sorts, not everyone's cup of tea I'm sure but check us out on Facebook and MySpace, would love to get some feedback!

We've got a huge gig on February 25th, headlining the Clapham Grand. If anyone's nearby then, why not pop in!

Anyway, just thought I'd float it past everyone on here, and if anyone feels compelled to buy the single and push a Charlton band up the charts then I would of course be very grateful!

Let me know what you guys think.....

    Thanks for the feedback guys.

    And wahey, you know Tim! Might crack out a cheeky VFR or Red Red Robin during one of our gigs. We did an impromptu Super Mario theme last time out so there's always room!
  • Not bad, not bad at all..do I get guestlist for that comment now?
  • I quite liked it, you can have 79p off me, just another 4,999 to go!

    Top 40 here ya come!
  • Pretty good mate ... especially like 'Stare On' ... any plans for an album?
  • "Shameless Self Promotion" is a cracking name for a band... as yours is not called that I might use it myself.

    Cheers Stonemuse. We're contracted for 3 singles in the next 12 months. There'll be an EP at some point during that time and we'll do an album after that.

    You're not wrong! (Realise it looks like our name from the thread title now.) Could be a cracking title for an album too.
  • You should see of Dave berry will give u a play on xfm, I'm sure he'd want to help out a fellow addick.

    Saw your piece in The Newshopper. Bumped it for your shameless self promotion and as my favourite groups are Killers and Arctic Monkeys

    Thanks for the bump Covered End! Singles out in 15 mins! Unfortunatley iTunes have let us down and pushed back their release due to a 'Backlog' which is very frustrating, but we'll be available on Amazon, Napster and all the usual download sites from tomorrow. Just have to wait a bit longer for iTunes.
    Thanks again everyone for your support!
  • Apparently iTunes pulled through for us and have managed to get the single out on time! So it's on there. Just search 'Van Susans, Bones'

    So....has anyone gone and bought a copy!? Really happy with the sales today.
    We're currently number 4 in the Amazon Movers and Shakers chart which updates hourly, above Alexandra Burke, Katherine Jenkins, Daft Punk and others. At number 1 is that clown from the Go Compare adverts who's released a Xmas single today. So if nothing else, why not help to knock him off his perch!
    We're also number 42 in the iTunes Rock Genre chart.
    Can I rely on my fellow Addicks for some more downloads!?
  • Downloaded today, gotta say a great tune and strangely in some way I think the lyrics can relate to Charlton: "Sometimes it takes a long hard fall, to find out you're not invincible after all..."
  • Cheers Forza! We're at number 28 on the iTunes Rock Chart now. And yes, I think a lot of Charlton fans would relate to the lyrics of the song in that sense!
  • I got the single last night on Itunes..its a very good song, good luck for the future and i'm looking forward to hearing more :)

    Thanks Stubley! Next single should be out around Easter time.
    Slipped a bit in the daily charts today, but to be expected after the hype of the first day of going on sale. Really suprised with the news of how many downloads we were getting yesterday. Things looking good!

    Nice tune, all the best !
  • Excellent Olly, as good as a lot of well known bands - keep the faith !

    NB I think my son went to the same junior school as the brothers - St Marks - & they live round the corner from us :-)
  • Good luck with this. Not entirely my cup of tea, but I'm sure it's a lot of peoples' and I hope it does well.

    One thing: in the video, when he decides to go to the party and takes the bandage off and leaves the house; why is it daylight outside?
  • Thanks for the kind words guys!

    Yeah, got a bit of stick for this! A result of having a budget of £0 for the video! Couldn't light it well enough so had to go for daylight. Official reason is, "he had a long way to run!"
