Ending the Year with Chart Topping Highs

That sounds like a pop band's blog title, but it has become a bit crazy-weird at years-end.

First, our prog rock noisemaking broke into the Top 40 on two different and unrelated sites, ReverbNation and NumberOneMusic. In a recent newsletter, the unreasoning voice of Gravity Tree appealed to their fans to help them go further. But what happened was even more unexpected.

On ReverbNation, Gravity Tree climbed as high as #13 on the Rock charts. Over on N1M, the song Interference went to #6 on their US Rock chart, and all the way to #2 on the Progressive chart! This isn't a 3 minute, 3 chord wonder, mind you, but an 8+ minute piece. 

It didn't stay there long, because our song Threes Too actually bumped it out of the #2 slot. No, really.
The song Building also faired well in the month of December, rising to #14. Hey we're not making this up - how crazy is that?

We can't thank our fans and friends enough for doing the impossible this year, and hope the forthcoming new songs will help communicate our thanks for your sustaining support. BTW, if you aren't getting our newsletter (and in the latest issues' case, 3 free downloads), you can sign up here and join in on the noise.

Looking forward to even crazier events in 2014, we hope yours is healthy, happy and prosperous.

Thanks for listening!

3 Million Plays

The 3 Million Mark: Big Number on a small scale... 

How unlikely it is, that this experimental, progressive noise
could hit the 3 Million mark on NumberOneMusic (or anywhere for that 
matter)...but it has happened nonetheless! 

Some time ago, Gravity Tree posted a number of odd and unusual
pieces on N1M. 

3,000,000 plays later, perhaps the lesson is that music lovers are
indeed looking for something different. 

Gravity Tree are truly grateful to all who helped make it to 3 Million. Even in the absence of a new album, the fanbase is growing in anticipation of the next giant noise bomb.

For the uninitiated, one can get Gravity Tree music (some might use the term "music" loosely; "noise" is also acceptable) all over the place: 

iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp, CDBaby, you get the picture.

You can get free music, news and surprises, at NumberOneMusic or at the group's homebase on the interwebs.

Another crazy thing: The soundtrack/game music Alan (Gravity Tree's drummer/synthesist) has composed for many years, has suddenly become slightly popular. Without any warning, Alan's ReverbNation page made the Top 10 in its genre. There are hardly any fans listed there (so much for analytics!), but it happened anyway. 

So Alan's in the Top 10, and Gravity Tree hits 3 Million plays.

For those that made this happen: thanks for listening...3 Million times!
