World Cup 2010 England Song

January 31, 2010

The World Cup 2010 is rapidly upon us…

In time-honoured tradition, the London-based rockband, The Laddz, is rereleasing their 2006 debut track “Chant Like An English Fan” to help rally the England fans and spur the squad onto hopeful success this year.

With more time for preparation, marketing, and early promotion, they are hoping the Obama-strategy of leveraging the online community via Twitter, Facebook, WordPress, Myspace, and YouTube, amongst many other mediums will help boost their popularity and record sales.

“We got a lot of recognition back in 2006 for what we accomplished,” states Richard Eyre, co-writer and part of the trio behind the band. “Four years ago we knew practically nothing about the music business, but still got the track produced, promoted, a small feature on Channel Four TV, and radio airplay. We’re going into this World Cup with four years more experience.”

A catchy tune, parodying the Bangles’ track “Walk Like An Egyptian” but with footie-related lyrics and a more upbeat rock sound, readers can listen to the track via their myspace site (http://myspace.com/theladdz) New and old fans can follow the activity via Twitter (@theladdz), friend with then via Facebook, and follow this blog.

At this time, the band is looking for potential street team members to help spread the word locally. They are also looking for local UK clubs that would like to play the track at half-time. Interested parties should email Richard Eyre at goldenorchard@windowslive.com

Rock on England!
