Vote for Royseven in Meteor 'Hope For 2007' award - not news Hi Guys! gave me (Dela) permission to ask for you to participate in voting for an Irish "hope for 2007" award. The award is given out at an annual award show in Ireland. It recognizes several new talented acts and lets the public decide which one should get the "hope" award for the next year. Acts that are given this award, will generally go on to do very well.
This year the nominees are The Blizzards, Delorentos, Electric Penguins, The Immediate, Luan Parle and Royseven. Royseven is a band I like a lot both because their debut album is incredible and because the guys themselves are really a great bunch. They have been pushing themselves hard to promote their work; if they get this award, they most definitely deserve it.

CLICK HERE TO VOTE - You can vote for any of the bands here, I am asking that you check Royseven out and give them your vote before Friday at 6pm (GMT) when voting finishes. Obviously I don't expect that you vote "blindly", so here's some music samples I could dig up on the net.

UPDATE: It's past 6pm so I guess voting is closed, if it still accepts votes, go ahead and vote, you never know ;-)

Above: Happy Ever Afters live on Irish TV show

Above: You Can't Hide That live at Vicar Street

Above: Aberdeen Live In Germany (very short and cam goes sideways)

Above: This one is quite poor quality but I put it in because I was there for this one and am in that very dark video somewhere, great fun ;-)

There are plenty more videos on YouTube ->

There is also music on their own web pages that you can click to listen to.
On the flash site click the headphones and then you can switch between Happy Ever Afters and Crash on the laptop
Happy Ever Afters, Crash and Older on MySpace
New music video for Crash is on this page (scroll down and to the left)


I've posted a lot of material to this site and constantly get feedback with people saying thanks. Well if you gave been helped out by any of my content, and want to say thanks, then send a couple of votes towards Royseven from you, your family and friends, only takes a couple of clicks and seconds of your time. ;-)

Voting closes on Friday so VOTE NOW PLEASE!

Thanks in Advance Guys ;-)

Just remonding that the headline clearly states this is not news and AfterDawn is just doing me a favour letting me post it in this section, it will msot likely be deleted when voting closes, so lets not have "why does this fit here" or "this is news?" comments, thanks :-)
