Today! One of my favourite bands of ALL TIME has given us a second full-length record to fall in love with. If you had asked me three years ago if my favourite band in 2015 would be a MARKETING TEAM I would have thought that an extremely unlikely circumstance. But marketing WORKS folks, at least when you’re marketing Blimp Festivals. Check out their new album, check out their vintage office supplies, check out all things Blimp Rock at: http://www.blimprockenterprises.com/
Here’s a word from the team themselves:
“ATTN: People of business!
We have a very important announcement for you today.
Blimp Rock will be releasing our second album, entitled “Sophomore Slump” on April 7th.
“Let’s All Stay In Tonight” – the first single is not so much a rejection of the nightlife, but an endorsement of the indoors. It is a ‘call to couch’ for those of us who enjoy cheese plates, early evenings and small groups of people. Listen via Soundcloud, Bandcamp or watch the video.
As both a band and a marketing team, we have focused on funding our $700k festival that will take place on a blimp floating over Lake Ontario. We plan on reaching our goal by releasing albums, touring as a relatively unheard of Southern Ontario rock band, and selling vintage office supplies such as rolodexes, fax machines and floppy discs.
After the runaway success of “Lake Ontario Lifeguards (L.O.L.)”, expectations ran high at the BRE offices for a follow-up. Will we ever surpass the hype of L.O.L.? Was the first record better? Can we ever raise $700 000? Regardless, Blimp Rock has made a second album.
However, it is a good idea to get our sometime, so Blimp Rock will also be embarking upon a “Powerpoint Tour of Ontario” starting April 11th.
Each show includes a Powerpoint presentation on our business plan, followed by a rock concert.
We’d be very appreciative if you shared the news with your associates.
Thank you for your business,
Blimp Rock Enterprises”
