Thousands of bands entered and 20 bands competed locally. The results are in and Tacoma’s own Sevens Revenge has won the local round of Hard Rock Rising – the global battle of the bands!
Of the 97 cities across eight countries that held the competition, Seattle/Tacoma had the most competing bands in their region at 2O. That means Sevens Revenge is the winning band from the most competitive market in the Hard Rock Rising circuit globally.
Now, Sevens Revenge needs your help to bring them one step closer to winning the chance of a lifetime – a spot on the bill at the 2013 Hard Rock Calling music festival in London’s Hyde Park, featuring headlining performances by Bruce Springsteen, the chance to cut an album with Hard Rock Records, go on a European tour and win new gear. Now it’s up to you, Tacoma, to show your support and help these emerging artists live out their dreams. Visit Hard Rock Cafe Seattle’s Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/hardrockcafeseattle?ref=ts&fref=ts, to vote for them from April 22 to May 1.
Sevens Revenge will now be pitted against 95 other Hard Rock Cafe local winners from across the globe. These local winners will be narrowed down to the top 25 bands worldwide via fan voting on Hard Rock Facebook page. Beginning April 22 at 10 a.m., fans can vote and download free tracks from bands of their choice at Hard Rock Seattle’s Facebook page. Once the top 25 are determined, a panel of music industry professionals – including Steven Van Zandt of the E Street Band, Live Nation Senior Vice President of Music Toby Leighton-Pope and Hard Rock Records’ Artist Relations Executives John Kirkpatrick, James Buell and Blake Smith – will select the grand prize winner and two runner up bands.
Congratulations to all the Sevens Revenge bandmates: Dusti Seven, Kristen Cadenhead, Scott Malone, Ryan Fairchild and Cooper Stanley!
