A new file for your events!

Dear bands,

I have updated the Excel file related with live events worldwide that is mentioned here and I am on my way to send it to you. :)

If your band has not received it, you can contact me
and ask for this file to complete your upcoming live events.

Then, I'll be pleased to share the infos through Sword Chant for you and listeners, as you already know. :)

You can contact me if you have questions, or requests.
I'll be pleased to answer you.

With kind regards.

Isn't the time for some bands to be in the search for a label ?

I may be wrong, but I think it may be the time when some bands are searching for a label.
So, I have updated the labels listing available in Sword Chant, to help them a bit in the search. If you notice some labels are missing in this list, you can email me them at anytime. : )
Of course, partnership with labels can be as I think to work on the footer for this site, again.

And we can´t forget the good food and drinks that we got there.
