Vancouver based alt rockers Splitting Adam, who were featured in EA’s Need For Speed: Undercover, have announced they will be coming to this year's ELAN Awards on April 25th.
Splitting Adam has made waves in the gaming music industry lately with the inclusion of their song "On My Own" in NFS: Undercover last fall. The band was also recently hand-picked to join the 2009 Video Games Live tour, and they performed along side the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra at The Orpheum Theater for the Vancouver date.
Along with this announcement, the ELAN Awards have another surprise in store for this year's event.
For the first time ever, tickets for The ELANS will be made available for the public. According to Holly Carinci, Founder & Producer of the ELAN Awards, this decision was made to help morph the award show from an industry-oriented one to a publicly recognized and followed awards show. The goal, says Holly, is to build the public profile of The ELANS to match that of the annual Oscar awards.
Interested gamers looking snag some of these "very limited" public tickets should call 778.960.4402 or go to www.theelans.com.
For those of you unfamiliar with Splitting Adam, I found a clip of them performing at the VGL show in Seattle, WA. Check it out:
