This month, we figured we'd embrace one of the necessary evils of modern business. That's right, I'm talking about the dreaded "Social Media" *ominous thunder*.

Social media, in theory, is a BRILLIANT tool for small companies and artists from all over the world to connect, share their resources and bring their music to the world. I'm sure we all have stories of bands and labels that have met over Facebook or Twitter, and gone on to dominate the world. Even *shudder* Justin Boober, or whatever he's called, got his start on YouTube. In Theory, Social media is a wonderful way for people in countries all over the world to reach out and tell artists they've never met how much they LOVE their music. In practice though, it's more often used by people all over the world to call each other names and troll.
But you miss 100% of the chances you don't take. So OF COURSE Flicknife are all over social media, and I figured I'd take this opportunity to catch you guys up, on our plethora of platforms, so you can stay up to date with all our news and other nonsense!

First things first, the daddy of them all! Facebook:
While it may not be the first social network, it's the first one to get a really bad film made about it! And it's definitely the first network built by a robot/lizard/lizardrobot! Our Facebook page is the place to go if you want to see all the latest info on our bands, their upcoming gigs, releases and maybe have a chat with some of our amazing staff, who are always ready to speak to you awesome people.

Next up, the young pretender, the heir to the throne! Twitter:
There's no better place in the world than twitter for getting shouted at by a celebrity, or getting your new TV series cancelled in one tweet! The power is REAL, yo. However, if you want to read short bursts of information about our latest releases 30+ times a day in 280 characters or less, Twitter is the best possible place for you to come!

Coming in at third, as always, is the platform that was once dominated by cat videos and people falling over, but has now become a network to rival any of the mainstream broadcaster. Of course, I'm talking about YouTube. Our channel is a little... sparse, right now, but we're working on it though! we're going to add lots of videos from our excellent bands, so if you want to hear the absolute BANGERS that make up our track list, make sure to keep an eye on our YouTube channel in the months to come. PewDiePie, we're coming for you so subscribe to make sure you don’t miss a thing such as...

Last, and most definitely not least, comes the network voted most influential, but also the most toxic. Instagram:
This account is actually managed by none other than our glorious founder Frenchy! So not only will you see pics of all our latest releases, but you'll also see a rare glimpse into his weird and fun world! So make sure to follow this account if you want to see amazing alternative album art, plus the occasional picture of a door, or maybe a plant! And all of this awesomeness with not an airbrush in site!

So there you have it people! A brief rundown of all our Social Media accounts and what to expect from them. Hopefully you'll sign up to the ones that you're not already on, and stay signed up to the ones that you're already members of! If you like our bands and you want to show your love, please follow us and keep indie music alive!

Catch you on the flipside,

Taheg Gloder and the Flicknife Kru.
