Just got a message from Crystal requesting another post dedicated to Sick Puppies. Why haven’t I posted about Sick Puppies lately? After all they are one of the hottest bands rockin’ the entire world right now . . .
Thanks for the comment, Crystal (!) … Your wish is my command.
To Whom it may Concern,
What a great site you have going here! I love browsing through everything and taking it all in – music is my life! I can only imagine the hard work and dedication put into running such a website. I was however, wondering how to go about submitting a guest blogger entry or how to go about getting a band covered?
I realize that Sick Puppies are covered on a general basis on Xtreme Music, but I think that they deserve to be covered much more in depth. Sick Puppies have been one of my favorite bands for a couple years now, though they have been in the industry much longer. I can’t seem to find anything about them on your site. They are just now receiving some much deserved recognition after their single “You’re Going Down” went number one on rock radio. Now that there is a new single, “Odd One,” I get to feel that sheer happiness every time I hear them on the radio. All of their music has helped inspire myself, as well as many others, as only music can.
Sick Puppies have such an intense connection with all of their fans. Every time I attend a show I am shocked that they sit at their merchandise booth and sign autographs until every fan has been through the line – every single time! They have so much love and passion for what they do and so much appreciation for their fans.
The influence this band has had on my life is to such a great extent that it can’t even be explained. I could try, but I think that sending you a couple links to see for yourself would do Sick Puppies much more justice. Here is a series of thank you statements to the band from several members of the Sick Puppies World Crew. It emphasizes the band’s dedication to their fans, and how much it means to them.
Both albums “Dressed Up as Life” and “Tri-Polar” are available for listening on their MySpace at http://www.myspace.com/sickpuppies
Newest single — “Odd One” — Sick Puppies
First single from Tri-Polar — “You’re Going Down” — Sick Puppies
One of the greatest and most unique things about this band is their fan site/forum. The group and site is owned by the band, and run in coordination with management.

Thank you so much and I hope to hear back from you!
