Eluveitie has issued the following announcement about seeking video submissions of fans performing with the song "Thousandfold:"

"You might have heard about our upcoming tour through the US & Canada, and you might also know that we are about to take a whole new show across the pond, bringing you a full 90-minute headline show with a killer support-package and some of the lowest ticket prices around.

"Now as if this wasn’t enough yet this will also be your chance to get on stage with Eluveitie: After constantly receiving requests for sheet music and seeing dozens of Youtube videos of fan cover versions we figured it is time to give you the chance to prove yourself on stage. All you need to do is record a video of yourself performing whatever you do best to our Song Thousandfold, upload it on www.youtube.com and send us the link to contest@eluveitie.ch. Don’t forget to include your name, age, and of course where you’re from / which show you are planning to attend.

"As with anything that sounds like fun first there’s some restrictions as to what’s possible, so what will give you the best chances are singing, playing the flute/whistles or guitar, and of course the classic and always welcome air guitar playing. But we are definitely also open to your talent in tap dancing or anything else that comes to mind. Before you ask though: Due to the nature of our show we unfortunately are not able to let you take over the drumkit.

"Long story short: Record a video of yourself performing whatever you think the world should see to our song THOUSANDFOLD, upload it on www.youtube.com and send an email with the link as well as your name, age and hometown/show you’re planning to attend (if you’re from the US or Canada) to contest@eluveitie.ch. If we like what we see and it’s easy to put on stage we might invite you to join us on stage at a show near you.

"Any winners will be handpicked by the band and will receive free entry (for a friend if you’ve already got your ticket), if possible early access to the venue, meet the band before the show and will finally perform the Song Thousandfold on stage with the band during their show.

"All Videos will appear under 'Favourites' on Eluveitie’s Youtube channel and of course every participation is welcome even if you are from outside the US and Canada. You might just earn yourself some other kind of reward if you’re lucky. The deadline for new entries is January 23rd 2011, winners will be announced January 29th."
