Quick question, which sounds better to you? Queue outside in the cold February air or be sat inside the 100 Club asking your favourite band everything and anything?
Yeah, we thought so, hence why at 4pm on Thursday, February 16 we'll be giving a select few of you the chance to interview Dragonforce before they play a super intimate and SUPER LOUD set in London.
You get to quiz the band in the flesh and appear in the pages of Rock Sound, there is no downside!
Fancy getting involved? Simply email [email protected] with your name, age, contact telephone number, the town / city you live in and a short paragraph on why you should be selected to be part of this intimate rendezvous. Successful applicants will be notified on Wednesday.
As always, there are rules:
1. We will NOT be supplying tickets for the show as part of the feature.
2. You have to make your own way to / from the interview.
3. Your picture will be taken as part of the piece, so leave your shy shoes at home!
4. BE COOL! If you freak out or cause a scene upon meeting the band, we will dip you in a vat of hot acid. Yeah, we carry one with us everywhere, what's weird about that?
5. Herman Li has a braided hair phobia. Undo them immediately!
6. We're now just making stuff up.
So go - what are you waiting for?!
