The 500 Challenge

Hey Friends & Fans!

As you all know by now OCCIDIS is in an online contest to win either a record deal or a 25 city tour. Votes the first couple weeks were great but they seem to have dropped off this week. We've only had about 25 votes this week, which is awesome but won't get us to the top.
We think that we can make it to the 6th spot by next Friday, May 8th (we currently are in the 7th spot). But to do that we need to get as many people voting every day as possible because we are 500 votes behind. That's a lot of votes but we know how awesome our friends and family are and that their support can get us to number one.

Voting takes less than a minute and you don't have to sign up for anything. You just clink the banner below scroll to OCCIDIS and check the box. It's that easy. If you will give us a minute of your day you can help us make it big.

Vote for your favorite band

Thank you for the support! We can't do it without you!

If you haven't checked out our new track "Impatient" yet, check it out and let us know what you think. We'll have the mastered track up in the next few days along with another song or two.
