Re-entering the mosh pit

The app fills one core purpose; to bring bands closer to their fans again. During their 30 years in the music industry, Swedish death metal band Dark Tranquillity explored the idea after experiencing a growing detachment to their fans by using conventional social media channels. Over the years they have used different platforms to reach their fanbase, starting with forums in the 90s, MySpace in the 00s then moving on to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Todays' social media algorithms make it harder to reach out to the entire audience. Bands posting content on social platforms like Facebook and Instagram can no longer fully rely on that they actually appear in their fans social feed. Bandbond to is a joint effort to bridge this gap by bringing bands closer to their fanbase again.

No treble. Just good.

Since Bandbond is created by and for the metal community, the project got a lot of traction already from the start. A great number of metal bands instantly jumped on the bandwagon. By the first release of Bandbond in 2019, over 150 of the biggest metal and hard rock bands in the world had already signed up their accounts. The majority of users are fans who want to consume content of their favorite bands. Simultaneously, band members are using the same app to maintain their feed and to post content to their audience.

Future Memories are behind the development and maintenance of Bandbond's native apps for both iOS and Android. Designing and developing this app is an ongoing collaboration with our friends at Mad in Sweden and Bandbond. Together we rock! 🤘
