Bandcamp Friday Sales Results in for June 5th

In May the band released a special digital compilation for the sale called “Reforged in Faith”. The results of that sale were the following:

Compilation announcement – Seen post 702 – clicked on article – 95
Facebook Event invites sent out 833
Those who said “going” 37 Those who said “interested” 67
Those who did not respond to invites 739

Day before sale reminder Facebook post – Seen post: 834 Engaged: 47

Reminder Facebook post – Seen post: 593 Engaged: 49
Final Facebook post – Seen post: 109 – Engaged: 5
Bandcamp Totals: 339 Track plays from 155 Unique listeners

Final Sales: 12 (from the 155 who clicked through)

We tried a different approach this time focusing more on engaging through email and instead of running a Facebook event we ran an advert for the day. The results are:

Event announcement – Seen post 3,245 (Promoted Post)
E-Mails sent out: 1,884‬ (two different emails via MailChimp, and via GMail)

Reminder Facebook post – Seen post: 110 Engaged: 9
Bandcamp Totals: 267 Track plays Sales: 50 (from those 267)

This time we offered a package of two CD’s (Reforge The Steel and Reforge The Steel Live) along with a free download of the album.

As you can see the sale this month was considerably more successful although we had to use pay for services such as Facebook Adverts (targeting those who already “like” the page) and Mail Chimp to achieve better results. The end result was even thought there we less click through and plays on the tracks and less engagement then the previous campaign we had 38 more sales as a result of paying for the advertisement and MailChimp then using Facebook for free. In fact it highlights the difference in worth to bands of a free Facebook like over paid advertising.

We spent roughly £50 on both Facebook/MailChimp and our income for the day was £587.90.

For today only we’re be doing both CD’s for just £15 with free shipping worldwide – so if you are yet to own our new album today is as good as time as any to order a copy! Click here to order now.

Reforged In Faith Album releasing Friday May 1st, 2020

Compilation Cover Art

We’ve decided to do something a bit different for the forthcoming Bandcamp sale and offer a unique compilation album for 1 day only for just £5 to try and encourage more people to buy the music and hear our most recent albums. Reforged In Faith is a digital only compilation album featuring a combination of tracks from A Crisis of Faith (2018) and Reforge The Steel (2019).

The compilation will go on sale on Friday, May 1st 2020. It will also be available to our members and in the full digital discography special price for that day. If you have not bought these albums previously this is an opportunity to own both in a unique compilation for a reduced price.

The artwork is taken from The Seventh Seal, a 1957 Swedish historical fantasy film written and directed by Ingmar Bergman on which the track A Night Meets Death is loosely based. Disillusioned knight Antonius Block and his cynical squire Jöns return from the Crusades to find the country ravaged by the plague. The knight encounters Death, whom he challenges to a chess match, believing he can survive as long as the game continues.

The album will be available to order from here as soon as it goes live.

BANDCAMP SALE! Friday, May 1st!

[A few Fridays ago, we waived our revenue share to help artists and labels impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Bandcamp community went above and beyond, spending $4.3 million on music and merch in just 24 hours. It was an inspiring day, and we heard many requests to do it again, so we’re going to do exactly that (and a bit more).

We’ll announce the details of this initiative to everyone next Monday, but we wanted to give our artists and labels a heads up that the first step is coming soon: on Friday, May 1st, we’re going to waive our revenue share again. Stay tuned for more information next week, and be sure to check out our new Bandcamp Artist Guide for recommendations that will help you maximize your sales on May 1st and beyond.]

We’ll be again passing on the discounts on Friday, May 1st 2020 when Bandcamp drops their fees in support of artists again. We do remind people that there will be delays to orders during the lock down period but we will ensure everything will get to you as soon as possible and that digital items are available with every purchase in the meantime. Members will be able to double their discounts.

REFORGE THE STEEL – Availability and Where To Find Online

Liam Etheridge – 2 Years in Kaine

Liam Etheridge has now been the drummer in Kaine for 2 years, originally replacing Chris MacKinnon in what was essentially the Crisis of Faith line-up before the band was reformed a month later. He played his first gig with Kaine at The Dev on the 20th of April 2018 and would only play 1 more gig with that line-up (May 4th 2018 at Voodoo Lounge, Stamford) before one final transitional gig with Toby Woods on lead guitar and Stephen Ellis on bass at The Smokehouse, Ipswich on May 19th.

Liam has since recorded and released the Reforge The Steel album with the band, as well as appearing on the Kaine X Live album and DVD. He has also performed drums on the delayed Waystone EP and Reforge The Steel live album. Both projects are on hold due to corona virus and the UK lock down measures.

Liam recently took part in a feature for this website which can be read here – https://kaine-metal.com/2020/04/07/feature-with-liam-etheridge-kaine-drums-backing-vocals/
