The end of the voting contest is getting near, we’ll see on Tuesday if we could win the music video. Until then, please make sure you pull up the volume button under the photo of Bankrupt HERE!
We’ve entered a Facebook voting contest recently to win a music video, and to our surprise we won the first round against a major rock band. The problem is, we should win three more rounds and we’re competing against bands ten times our size in terms of popularity. Which means we need your votes badly. So if you feel like supporting us

We have created a band page on Google Plus, you can also check it out and add us to your circles via the slick Google Plus slider button at the top of the icon set on the right side of our website.
But why another social network? We think Google Plus could take off if Google can pull off YouTube integration in a smart way, and if Facebook screws things up with desperate measures to stop its stock price from hitting new lows. Yes, Facebook has about 1 billion users (including over 80 million fake ones), but remember how the once thriving social metropolis of MySpace had turned into a ghost town in about a year?
On 30 March all Facebook pages will be automatically converted to the new Timeline design. As a result, default landing pages, like the one we’re using to let new fans download the Rewound EP for free, will be gone. We still have to figure out how to rearrange the page, as the change will be a lot more radical than last year’s Facebook page upgrade, but the free download will still be available here on the website.
Of course, not everyone likes Timeline, but there is no way to disable or remove Timeline once you’ve upgraded. (And you’ll be forced to do so soon.) There is a workaround though, in case you want to view Timeline pages with the old design. The FB Purity plugin offers to disguise your browser as IE7, so that Facebook pages will fall back to the old design. But it’s not likely that this hack will continue to work for very long, so better get used to Timeline soon!
Yesterday Facebook offered us to upgrade our page, and being brave early adopters, we pushed the button without thinking twice. So what’s new then?
Let’s start with the thing everybody is complaining about. Now there are two views on the wall, Everyone and the page owner (in our case, Bankrupt). The Everyone view puts the hottest (most liked/commented) post on top, so it messes up the chronological order of the posts, but if you don’t like it, you can use the other view, or watch the posts on our BandPage instead of the wall, so don’t panic. Problem solved. Continue reading
