It’s official, festival season is back (!), and last weekend we well and truly kicked off the season in style attending Salford’s very own Sounds From The Other City, which took place on a sunny Sunday during the early May bank holiday weekend. As a newbie to Greater Manchester, I’ve been so eager to attend […]
We have been keeping a huge secret for our brilliant new client Andy and the Odd Socks, but the news is finally out! Queen legend Brian May is making his acting debut in the brand new series of Andy the Band, which will land on CBBC and iPlayer from 24th January.
The New Year has been an absolute whirlwind of activity over a Sundae HQ, and it’s safe to say we hit the ground running orchestrating this out of this world announcement alongside Brian May’s brilliant team, Odd Socks HQ and of course our friends at the BBC.
We’ve been honoured to join the team, as Andy and the Band features a band like no other. The Odd Socks can sing, they can play instruments, and they can completely ‘rock out’ until all their hair stands on end. Famously making their live debut at Glastonbury, Andy the Odd Socks also share a very important message as being an Odd Sock means digging your differences, bigging-up your bizarre bits, taking on the world AND helping everyone else in the world be whatever kind of Odd Sock they want to be too.
Rockstar royalty Brian, stars as the Godfather of Rock in brand new episode Planet Rock and even joins Andy and his band the Odd Socks for the ‘best jam ever’ while also helping them overcome a global ‘rocktastrophe’! The single, Planet Rock, by Andy and the Odd Socks featuring Brian May will be released on 18th February.
As anticipated, the response to the announcement was huge, and the story and accompanying interview were picked up by the Sun Online, Mail Online, Daily Star, Mirror Online, Metro, Independent, the NME, Planet Rock and uDiscover Music, plus hundreds of other titles across the UK and beyond, many of which shared a clip of the Planet Rock music video, creating huge excitement for both the series and upcoming single release.
Brian also did an exclusive interview with the Express Online, where he gave further insight into why he wanted to be in the show and what working with the Odd Socks means to him.
Meanwhile, children’s TV legend Andy Day, was in his element undertaking a series of interviews we placed with the likes of Fun Kids Radio, First News and Kidzcoolit, ensuring that parents, and children across the UK were all ready to tune in to Planet Rock, and find their own air guitar.
Now the planet is ready to rock, our work here is done and we’re going to sit back and enjoy the show x
