Next DDF Band performance… Camden Live

Events, Live

For those of you Londoners who expressed your sadness at missing our live band return gig in Colchester, fear not, we will be performing with the band again on the 25th February in Camden Town. Dunno what time time we’ll be on but come down to Camden Rock, 18 Kentish Town Rd to shake a leg with your friendly neighborhood DefDFires…

DDF Live Band Tears Up Age Of Aquarius

Events, Live

Friday the 10th saw us smashing out our first gig with the band in sometime, heading out to Colchester to play Skank Sabbath: The Age Of Aquarius. The event was to celebrate the birthday of our boy Rev Will Wright (the director of The Palace video). Safe to say the show was a success, along with stellar performances from Greg Blackman and Seeds-One MCing for the Rev’s set which had us shacking until we could shack no more.

Many thanks to all involved and watch this space for future Skank Sabbath events.

DDF Merch Available Now!!!

Emerging Species, Merch

A few of you have got in touch recently asking where you can buy the lovely new DDF tees that we’ve been rocking in all our new photos/at gigs etc. It gives us great pleasure to announce that the T-Shirts are available from the Emerging Species store, or you can buy them directly from the DDF bandcamp page and you’ll get a free download of Operation: Zombie Nation too! Gotta give a shout to the good folks over at THTC for helping us out with printing, and as usual with THTC products you can expect the garms to be of high quality. Stocks have been flying off the shelves already so order yours now to avoid disappointment; and looking really uncool at the next DDF gig.

THE O:ZN CAMPAIGN

Operation Zombie Nation, Press, Releases

An O:ZN mailout pack, including CD, T-Shirt, stickers, survival kit and a copy of The Evening Slander.

Operation: Zombie Nation, our second LP, was revealed to the world on 24/10/11 via Emerging Species. In the wake of the album dropping we thought we’d give you a whistle stop tour of the promotional campaign behind the release. Aside from the usual run of promo videos, singles, photo-shoots etc, we wanted go a step further and try and make the experience as immersive as possible – it seemed only right when dealing with a concept album.

The heart of the campaign is o-zn.com, a site dedicated to the world we created around the album, this acted as a central hub for all the various promotional mediums we employed (as well as our ‘only means of communication’ whilst we were trapped in the depths of The Cabin). If you want to fully explore the process of the campaign that’s the best place to look (start from the oldest post if you really wanna nerd out), in the meantime the next few posts will briefly cover some of the ideas and techniques that were used.

O:ZN CAMPAIGN: FACEBOOK ZOMBIE VIRUS

Operation Zombie Nation

The facebook zombie virus was a very simple and effective idea; get the album artwork, slap it on facebook two weeks before the album’s release, tell all our friends that whoever makes it their profile image will get a free download of the album. It was an easy, cost affective way, of us getting the image in peoples heads, directing new people to our page and a way of giving our supporters some freeness for their troubles. It also brings a whole new meaning to ‘going viral’ (sorry – I had to).

The following pictures show the virus spreading and have been edited so as not embarrass anyone nerdy enough to rock a DDF logo on their profile for two weeks. Thanks to all involved.
