Butterfly ripple an Epidemic

NATHAN Bedford is ready to feel the ripple of The Butterfly Effect.

The singer of Tannum Sands hard rock band Epidemic...Over said he and his band members could not contain their excitement about supporting Brisbane's The Butterfly Effect on their North Queensland tour.

“This is so great - the product of so much hard work and touring all the time,” he said.

“The Butterfly Effect is a big part of why we love music - their music is loved by all four of us.

“There's not many songs of theirs we don't all know the words to.”

Epidemic...Over will be “tweeting” their experience on the night, uploading pictures from backstage with what they are up to, pre- and post-gig at http://www.twitter.com/epidemicover.

Nathan said this interactive idea came about when the band attended Brisbane's Big Sound Music Conference, where they were inspired to learn more about using digital and social media to interact with fans.

Supporting one of Queensland's biggest hard rock bands is a humbling experience for the band, as Nathan said it hasn't been an easy two-and-a-half years since they first graced the stage at O'Dowd's Irish Pub for their first gig, supporting Gold Coast's The Wrath.

But the Rockhampton trip was one of many around the country for the boys who have travelled over 30,000km to date.

Those kilometres have been in support of fan-building and opening for acts such as Birds of Tokyo, Gyroscope, British India, Shihad, Dead Letter Circus, Melodyssey and Mammal.
