Happy Tuesday, vote-happy kids: Have you heard of our brand-new Make A Band Famous category? Allow us to explicate: We have chosen 10 up-and-coming, awesome bands with thriving fanbases to face off in the ultimate competition. Five will be chosen — by fan vote — to play the O Music Awards on June 19 (those will be announced on May 31) and one of those five will get a HUGE opportunity: a once-in-a-lifetime shot to play VMA weekend in August, as well as the distinction of becoming MTV’s Artist to Watch, VH1’s You Oughta Know, or CMT’s Listen Up highlighted band. Today, we’d like to introduce you to one of those 10 acts, The Future.
When you hear the words “band app,” what comes to mind? Likely a sad shell of a digital offering, serving up a sparse smattering of tour dates, song samples, photos and videos. Not so with OK Go’s new app, Say The Same Thing — a band-branded social game that expands OK Go’s circle of artistic offerings without being explicitly about their music.
