Sandveiss has been nominated for “Best Heavy Album of the Year” for Scream Queen at Quebec’s GAMIQgamiq-2 2015. Since 2006, the GAMIQ Ceremonies highlight the talent of Québec by awarding prizes to musicians who have developped a strong reputation for themselves among those heavily involved in the music industry.The awards take place during a musical event held in late autumn, featuring the best talent to come out of Québec. It is a must for anyone involved in the music scene.

In other news, Sandveiss is opening for Prog Metal Canadian band Protest the Hero in Montreal on November 21st for M for Montreal. The show is held by Extensive Enterprise, and Mandroid Echostar will also be performing.  For more details of the event, click here.

A little about M for Montreal: Founded in 2006 by Sébastien Nasra (Avalanche Productions), in collaboration with the legendary British festival programmer Martin Elbourne (Glastonbury Festival, The Great Escape and co-founder along with Peter Gabriel of the WOMAD festival), M for Montreal is much more than an annual event. “M” is an independent organization whose ambitious mission is to help up-and-coming artists both to become better known locally and to launch their careers outside Canada. For the last nine years, M for Montreal has carved out an enviable reputation at the heart of Montréal’s cultural life, and now occupies an undeniable role as a catalyst for the local industry, both for emerging local artists and those who are developing their careers outside Québec.MforMontrealHeader
