"We and the guys in the band are absolutely thrilled to be the first in the world to avail of this fantastic tool. Hoarsebox’s iPhone App has proved to be extremely popular amongst its fan base globally and the band are excited about using the Band in The Hand application for even more purposes into the future. In the music industry generally, it’s essential that bands think outside the box in terms of how they can create a more interesting experience for their fans. It’s not just about recording music anymore – there needs to be so much more for fans to engage with - and this DV4 application hits the mark perfectly with its brilliantly designed combination of interactivity, ease of use and practicality."
