Well, as we come to the end of a fabulous 2018, we in the band wanted to say a huge thank you to all our fans at home and around the world that helped make this year a huge success for us! Looking back, it's hard to believe this all happened in a single year!!!
First and foremost, we finally launched on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, and Google Play, racking up nearly 10,000 plays in the 9 months we've been active! On top of that, our music videos received over 70,000 plays on Facebook alone! Combined with the continuing success of “Outside Looking In” and “God Help Me I Like It” on radio, and our music was played by all of you in nearly 120 cities in 20 countries around the globe. It's unbelievably humbling the reach of the music and the number of you who've taken the time to listen, tell your friends, and help us grow as a band.
Speaking of videos, we launched a tour recap video for Outside Looking In with footage from dates in 2017. This led us to a huge victory in the Garrison Brewing Battle Of The Bash, which got us on stage with THE GLORIOUS SONS!!! This is one of the highlights in the band's 10 years performing and has opened so many doors for us. That win was quite literally because of all of you around the world who liked and shared the video. It's your win. We were just lucky enough to reap the benefits ;).
We embarked on the Outside Looking In Summer Tour: 3 months playing all over Eastern Canada including festival slots at Music Mountain Rock Fest, Riverfest, and Seaside Daze. This was the real highlight for us. After months promoting our music we finally got on the road and got to meet some of you face to face. There's nothing like getting up on stage in front of you and giving our all, but getting to talk, hang out, and get to know so many of you over those three months was a true joy.
Lastly we landed a year long residency at The Fleet Club Atlantic at CFB Stadacona for the Canadian Armed Forces. Playing for Canada's troops is always a privilege in and of itself, but being invited back to play monthly for a year was and is just amazing.
Well that about sums it up. The point we're trying to make is that this is all possible ONLY because of your support and enjoyment of what we are doing! It quite literally would not be possible without you, and we love you all for taking this journey with us.
We have huge things in store for 2019, and lots of ways we'll be thanking you for everything you've given us over the years. We're entering in to the second decade of Dali Van Gogh, and it only gets bigger from here.
Cheers everyone! Happy New Year.
