Sleeperstar Talks to Beatweek Magazine About Being Featured on 'The Vampire Diaries'
Beatweek Magazine interviewed the rock band Sleeperstar about shooting their new music video to the hit song "I Was Wrong," which was featured on the hit CW Network show, 'The Vampire Diaries.' In the interview the band also talked about being able to communicate with their fans, performing live, and how digital music has affected the music industry. Go to Beatweek Magazine to read the complete interview. When asked how "I Was Wrong" became featured on 'TVD,' the band told Beatweek:
You know, they actually contacted us! We almost didn’t even put that song on the record. And then we all kind of liked it so much, it kind of had this vibe to it, we were like, We’ll make it a secret song, you know, we’ll let a track run and put it in two minutes after. Then at the very last second, we were like, You know, I think this is strong enough to get its own little place on the record, so it earned its own spot. I literally think the week before it sold a handful of copies; it wasn’t in comparison to Texas Rain or Disengage or We Go Tonight, or some of the other songs that were selling really well. And then one play on Vampire Diaries and that song was like the number one purchased song on itunes in the country from our aggregator, which was Tune Core. We were passing Nine Inch Nails and Civil Wars and all these bands, which was really funny cause we are still a very new band as far as the general public’s concern, so it was pretty neat, the whole thing was truly organic. You just can’t plan for those kinds of things. We clearly did not see it coming. We are very thankful for the response.
