UPDATE: The Sweet World Chart is now available to view onSweetbox.com. PLEASE NOTE that the formula for social media points has changed!  The total points showed on the charts are now based on “(YouTube views) x (YouTube likes) x (Facebook likes). Yes this doesn’t take other social networks into account, but the team are working on implementing these ASAP!

Due to this change, the announcement of the first monthly winner has been postponed until 30TH SEPTEMBER!  So go getting sharing Sweeties!

Check Out The New Sweetbox Site!

It’s been updated in bits and pieces depending on what they’ve been talking about, but finally, the new Sweetbox site has been launched.

There’s not much here at the moment but probably what most of you are looking at is the store where you can purchase the international release of #Zeitgeist21, ahead of anywhere else like iTunes etc!

Also in the Singles section, there is ANOTHER version of the #Z21 single – the original club version that comes in at almost a minute longer than the version originally released back at the start of June!

And for those that correctly guessed that Miho & LogiQ were the new members, we’re being assured by the Sweetbox team that the emails will be out shortly. We’re suspecting that there might a code involved in order to get your 3 songs but we could be wrong!

Don’t forget that if you’re looking for past albums or other options to check out our own store!

Regards

And The New Members Are…

This is the image that you have been trying for almost a month to identify the two new members from. We’ve been deflecting your questions on it with the lines “We can not confirm or deny anything” probably much to your frustrations. And believe us, it’s been hard to keep quiet about it because we wanted you in on it too!!

But now, the wait is over and  today we can now reveal who these two are.

 E1367683518272_1

Please warmly welcome Miho Fukuhara & LogiQ Pryce (from Japan & Antigua respectively) to our family. For those that entered contest & guessed correctly, you’ll probably be amongst the first to hear the new music (in full) from these two (official tweet says we should receive info on downloads by mid-June!) We won’t give anything away but we think that you’ll be surprised 🙂

We hope you enjoyed our final hours countdown on Twitter with links to music related to (sometimes loosely & VERY loosely) time from past members and can’t wait to join you in the new era!

There are of course rules!

  1. Use one of the Sweetbox original song (no other sound, music, sample can be added)
  2. If you have any performer(s), artwork, or business name, products, & trademark in your video, make sure to complete clearance/release forms.  If you don’t have those when we request you, we won’t be able to include your work for judging process.
  3. Video format: We accept any format that YouTube supports.

After you’ve made your video, send it over to videocontest@sweetbox.com (depending on it’s size, you might have to upload somewhere and then send a download link to the address as some email providers may not allow sending of LARGE files!) and then it will be added to the Sweetbox Youtube channel. The video with the most views as of 31st MARCH 2012 will be chosen as the winner.

Good luck to everyone who enters!

AUDITION/CASTING CALL EXTENDED AGAIN

Yes, you are reading right, the audition time frame has been extended again! So, if you know of anyone who you think might be interested, get tweeting, posting to facebook, get it out there people!

===================

The following has been translated from official Sweetbox website

It seems that they may be going to be looking at a bilingual Japanese singer although it does state that they are not limiting the auditions to just Japan (anyone from around the world can apply). But you have be proficient in English so you can communicate with the team.

The tips for recording the video state that it should be the best audio & video quality that you can manage and that you should treat the video as a live audition. At the start of the video you should state (in English):

> Your Name
> Age
> State/Region and Country
> Recording Date

You can sing in either Japanese or English

At the end of the recording state “this is the end of my audition", so that they know that your performance is over. And finally, state your name again. Upload the video to youtube as an unlisted video putting the title in either of the following format:

Parasongs Audition: Your Name, Date
SWEETBOX Audition:: Anne Other, 9/1/2012

Before sending it, check the link works!! (Email yourself the link and then log out of youtube to check or send to someone to check it for you). Once you’re sure that it works, email the video link to talent@sweetbox.com.

NOTE THE DEADLINE FOR AUDITIONS IS 30TH NOVEMBER 2012
