Alex Band fandom help needed!

The Alex Band article on Fan History Wiki needs your help! The article is supposed to give a history of the fandom. At the moment, it isn't doing that very well. It only has very basic information. It needs more. Whatever information you can add, from a date added on the timeline to a fandom specific term to how big a fansite or community is, that would be really great!

New message from Alex!

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't been around but things have been crazy recently, both personally and professionally. I've been fighting to the death to get everything together to release this album and I'm happy to say that with the help of private investors and a partnership with a new independent label we are ready to go! The first step will be a first single release to radio in the US only, which will coincide with a full US tour to support it. We need to break this record domestically before we go global. I wish we could do the whole world all at once but it just isn't possible. I will let you all know the details of which song the first single will be and when exactly we will be taking it to radio. The album release date will be contingent on how the first single does and how long it takes to do what it does...if that makes sense;) But bottom line is both the first single and album will be out this year soon enough and I will touring again.

As soon as possible after we've secured the US we will take our tour and the single to Europe and Asia and South America. I wish I had an exact time, but there are too many variables to know now. The good news is I can finally move forward, and in a way where a major label can't hold me back or ruin my chances of success. It took forever to get to this point, but it will be very much worth the wait.

All you Brazilians should know that the duet with Marjorie of the song Arms and I wrote IS happening and I plan on coming there soon to finish working on the track, do press, and shoot a video. I am just waiting on our schedules to mesh right. And regarding the DVD, it is almost completely finished and turning out amazingly, but we have yet to decide the right course of action to take with it's release. As soon as I have more info I will let you all know.

We will be attacking all avenues of entertainment to help support the release of the single and have many great things in the works...and of course we'll need all of your help the most! So as soon as everything is in place I will bring you all into our plan of attack. Again I am so sorry for the ridiculous delay of getting this album out, if you all only knew the bullshit I have been through! Thank you for sticking with me, I do this all for you. Talk to you soon. All the love...

(Yeah, I have no idea why I'm randomly updating this community either. Hmmm. I just hope this really DOES end up happening this time. I'm so tired of waiting for that album. :[)

Hey everyone! Alex recently updated his MySpace blog about his departure from the major label he was previously working with. He's in the process of moving to his OWN PRIVATE LABEL! Go him! He will do much better indie I think. The major labels weren't showing him much love, he deserves better. Anyway here is the blog:

Hello Everyone!

I know you're all antsy to hear some good news and I finally have some to tell you!

I've been working on leaving my label for a while now, and moving to somewhere else to put this record out finally and give it the push it deserves…and I'm happy to announce that I will be putting the record out ON MY OWN! With help from good friends in the business and an amazing team, I'm putting together my own Label. This gives me the freedom to make my own decisions, to invest in myself, and to do what I want, when I want. This is the way to go these days in the music business and I am sooooooo lucky to be able to do it. There are no firm details as to when exactly the record will be released, but I am doing everything in my power to make the process as speedy as possible. I will let you all know of course as soon as I find out more.

Now on to even better news…I am in the process of booking sporadic shows all over the US starting in April. Most of them will be college dates and private gigs at first, but there are also talks of a tour this summer with a bigger name act and a possible headlining tour later in the year. Also, we are now booking a 3-week Brazilian tour to start the end of this June that will possibly spill over to other countries in South America. As soon as dates have been set I will let all you fans down there know. I'm so excited!

I am sooooo looking forward to getting back out on the road, playing Calling favorites and lots of great new songs as well. I have an awesome new band and we're currently rehearsing to get ready to play for you all. And NOW I will be able to offer you some of my new material at the shows before I even release it worldwide on own my private label!

Lastly, I wanted to tell you to keep your eyes out for a TV show called "Moonlight" on CBS airing April 24th featuring a couple of new songs from my upcoming record. And I will be making an appearance on one or two of the episodes of the new Real World Hollywood season which starts airing April 16th and April 17th on MTV. Check it out!

That's all for now…as soon as I get more info, you all will be the first to hear. I am free now; free to give you guys everything I can, whenever I want, and whenever you want it! There is so much exciting stuff in the works! Stay tuned next week for something special.

Thank you again for sticking with me through theses crazy and frustrating times! Talk to you soon. All the love…

Alex Band
