A Look At Our Upcoming Band Theme

It’s time for another theme sneak peek! Our upcoming theme, Harmony, will be a design geared towards bands and musicians who want a place to showcase their songs, sell swag, cultivate fans and notify them of upcoming shows. With Harmony, you can expect a highly visual, clean and responsive experience. I hope that you like the preview. Let us know what you think in the comments!

  1. Looks great. What carts will store work with? I vote Cart66!

    • +1 for Cart66. Would be even better if it support multiple Cart plugins like Boutique.

      • yes yes! Like boutique for sure. I’d pay for that.

    • +1 for Cart66 :) Thanks!

        • Support for Cart 66 would be a fantastic addition ;)

    • Nice theme design :)

      Best suited for musicians.

      • I think the theme could be great for podcasts or video bloggers …

        We’ll see .. .anyway I love the color scheme :)

    • Thanks for the suggestion. Right now we are leaning towards Jigoshop + WooCommerce, but I will consider other carts as well if we have time.

      • yes, WooCommerce seem to have a good support right now.

      • those are two of the plugin-needy e-comms around and the plugins for them are expensive, especically jigo-shop. you need a plugin for every basic function…and most typical functions will cost $20-$30 and up each…. I don’t see how most musicians could afford those plugins. any cost savings they might realize by using an ET theme will be immediately eaten by their e-stores before it makes any money.

      • I love it! maybe use something like stripe plugin!

        cr

  2. Simple and beautiful and a lot of fun. Great.

  3. Looks clean and perfect. The 4 sections are really what a Music related website need. Good job and looking forward for the live version!

    • Thanks, I tried to cover all the aspects of a band site :)

      • Given your music background Nick I’m kinda surprised this is your first music specific related theme! Can’t wait to see it and give it a whirl! Keep up the great work.

  4. Wow, perfect timing yet again, I have a muso client and we’ve been looking for a slick theme for a while now! Can’t wait to play with this one, great job Nick & the Team:)

  5. It will be great if the featured songs area supported video.
    It also will be interesting to see how the music player will works. Will the featured song link on the right play the song or open a post? If so, I would love to see previous/next buttons to navigate among songs.
    Wait a minute! I don’t see social icons? are you planning to integrate the theme with social icons?
    Nice work. Looks great.

    • I think next buttons would be a good idea, I’ll see what we can do. There will be social media icons in the menu bar if enabled.

    • I agree, supporting video’s here will be great!

  6. This looks great. Is there any chance of one of the theme variants being a light on dark theme, instead of dark on light? I’m certain that I’m not the only one that would be anxious to see the option.

    • Just a clarification in case I confused anyone: I’m referring to the main content area for the light on dark variation. If that area could match what you already have for the header, this would be perfect for me.

    • There will be alternate colorschemes, but most likely these will be variations in color and not a reversal of light and dark.

  7. Great work! Maybe it’s the right theme for our band website “Die Seelen”. Cheers!

  8. Great! It should work with GigPress plugin!

    • Thanks for the suggestion, we will take a look at the plugin.

  9. This looks great is it possible to include some sort of grungy metal font. Great work though. Themes are come thick and fast now:

  10. Looks great!

    Is it ecommerce compatible?
    We use woocommerce.

    • Yes, we will be integrated WooCommerce.

  11. Will there be a dark/black option available? I know a client where this would work good for, but they’d want it dark.

  12. It’s awesome…

    and vote for cart66..

  13. Finally a music-oriented theme.
    It would be great to have some variety of audio players and playlist building feature.
    Looks very nice, congrats!

  14. Looks awesome, when will it be available?

    • Why do people continually ask this question? The themes are ready when the code is complete and tested, whenever that may be, stop pressuring the developers for dates.

      Really nice to see a music theme added to the collection anyhow, fills another hole in the portfolio.

      Cheers ET.

    • We don’t have a set release date, but we will do our best not to keep you waiting too long!

  15. when will it be available?

    • We don’t have a set release date, but we will do our best not to keep you waiting too long!

  16. Cool! I have a lot of friends that play in different bands. I am going to recommend this theme to them.

    • Glad to hear it :)

  17. Yeaaah…. Cool! Themes for my Band :)

  18. Hey Nick

    Been waiting for something like this for how long now!

    A great option would be to somehow facilitate optional buy links for songs.
    Also, would this theme be flexible to be used alternatively as an independant label website with a few bands/artists as opposed to the actual band/artsit website?

    Regards

  19. Excellent, I have several projects for musicians and bands, so I can not wait to test … even if I’m already having adopted;)

  20. Beautiful! I can´t wait for this theme! thanks!

  21. This looks great ! Will this theme also have an option for integrating a discography ?

    • Yes, it will work with woocommerce.

  22. Looks good, although I really just need sites for small businesses and multisite networks; music bands are usually DIY, or they’d want something utterly unique.

    I think “The Matrix”-style colorization in dark teals might be a bonus for some, problematic for others. Any strong colors, aside from white/greys, can be a problem as they seem increasingly old-school to my clients. I suggest checking Pantone (or other company’s) color predictions for current/2013 palettes.

  23. Awesome job guys! Keep up the good work.

  24. Se ve espectacular, ya estoy pensando a quien le diseñare un sitio con este tema.

  25. The music player is a huge plus! My only request is that it would be compatible with .mp3. Some HTML5 players are requiring .ogg, and I think that’s lame seeing as few people have a consumer level product that can save in that format.

    • I’ll see what can be done.

  26. Great theme! Is there in any way a possibility that a new theme like PureType will come? Al those themes here are great but kind of cold. Like Lucid, beautifull, but with a white background. I’looking for a warm and responsive theme. PureType is becomming a little bit old ;-)

  27. Hey guys, I love it when you do a design & I instantly see that there is a mini-business right there.

  28. So good, keep goin Nick :)
    great job, beautifull design!

  29. This one is for me Baby ! :-D

  30. Album + Track Management with ability to add purchase via itunes option etc. would be great.

  31. Looks great!

  32. Anyway you could have a video block as well as a music one, a lot of the bands do music videos.

    Thanks Mike…

    • I think, there will be a video block in this template.
      Theme looks great.

  33. I think this theme will be pretty dang awesome. There is another James who commented that musician’s like DIY. Well, I don’t think they all like that. Some people like professional and easily customizable which your themes do. I look forward to seeing this in action.

  34. Design looks crisp, responsive as well, I’ll forward this to my buddy who plays in a jazz-combo, their website needs a make-over asap.

  35. There are just a few music themes around and this is a great idea to launch a theme is this niche. Overall he looks great with the clean and responsive design. Good job!

  36. If you could find a clever way to incorporate an “email sign-up for content” sort of thing on the main page I think that would be great. Arguably one of the best ways to stay in touch with fans, but so often it gets buried in a page.

    E.g.- Sign-up for our mailing list for to watch this video or for a free song download.

    • Jetpack does that well?

  37. Also, I’m looking forward to the Nick Roach music web site!

  38. Hi Nick,

    Two suggestions:

    – It could be great to have a calendar with all the events.
    – It could be fantastic to have a search box with some options (checkboxes or list) with some criteres like age, venue, city, day, etc…)

    Thanks for your work.

    Wip

  39. Looks good, will we be able to upload a own backgrounds eg the dark background with the lady singing, can we change that through epanel as opposed to editing the psd? thanks

    • Yes, you will be able to define your own background image for each location.

  40. It’s good and unique :) Nice to see more awesome works like this from Elegant Themes :)

  41. I was going to use Nimble for my clothing blog/shop site but will wait for this one instead! Perfect. I really hope we can insert our own background images, as Lambs was saying. If you guys need someone to test this right now, I volunteer!

    • Yes, you will be able to choose your own background images for each section.

  42. Are you implementing soundcloud support? Soundcloud is manditory for any self respecting musician. ;)

    • We will make sure that the theme is compatible with the standard soundcloud plugin, and that you can add your coundcloud social media icon in the header.

  43. Cool you’re implementing woocommerce integration!

  44. Hello

    Looks great ! Looking forward to it, I’ve been looking for a band theme for a long time but never quite got to it.

    Here’s my question : any change the music player section could be enabled/disabled, just like in some of your themes we can choose to enable/disable the quotes or the post excerpts on the home page?

    keep up the good work!

  45. I like it a lot! Now I just need to start a band :D
    Can’t wait for this, will use definetely.

  46. Wow! just amazing, awaiting for release to install it on one of my blogs ;)

  47. Hey!!!

    Looks great!!! When will it be ready for download!!! My first band is waiting for it!!!

    • I’m hoping to have it finished in about a week.

  48. I love the look of this – always looking for good band themes as they have the style I like. I am really excited to find that elegant themes is releasing a band theme!

  49. Nice theme!!
    I have a question: Is it possible to make an blog post without the sidebar? A full width blog post would be really nice.

  50. Very nice. Thank sharing it.

  51. Do you think that this theme could be applied to a film maker/actor/director looking for a place to showcase their films/youtube trailers..

    they want to have each slider image be the trailer of their film and upcoming films..

    Thanks.

  52. Great work. I am very excited. You guys are as awesome as ever. Keep them coming.

  53. Beautiful theme, any ETA as to when it will be released?

    • It should be ready in about a week.

      • Hey Nick,
        Looks beautiful, I’d really like to install it already.

        Do you have an official and final launch date when the theme will be available?

        Thanks and keep up the good work,
        Allan

  54. A beautiful design and very modern, it looks promising.

    Lg,
    Rewolve44

  55. Can you please enable it to run charts, top 10 top 20 music charts, video charts etc.
    if it’s gone up or down or new release, what position it moved from etc , just like any classic charts.
    I think one function would broaden it out from a specific band in to genres of music, for music scene lovers..

    I’d so love to see that..

  56. Hi, any idea when this will be available? Thanks

  57. Most needed. We always feel that music related themes are not available in market in much quanity. Thanks for sharing this.

    Amit

  58. Nice… a definite lack out there of stunning responsive sites in this category so this is awesome!

    The functionality of websitemusicplayer.com would be great too, without the Flash.

  59. Looks great !
    It also means that you finally going to have an “official” music player/playlist plugin ? Could we use it in other ( previous ) themes, like Envisioned, for example ?

  60. It looks awesome! But when will it be released!? SO keen to get my hands on this!

  61. Just decided YESTERDAY that the band needed a website … cannot wait!

    Perfect timing!

  62. I’ve been a subscriber of yours for YEARS…. I’ve been waiting for this one since the beginning! For the dates/calendar, do you plan on using “Bands In Town” API? It seems to be the industry standard for tour dates:
    http://www.bandsintown.com/

    #excited

  63. Well… nice timing!

    I have a band that needs a website…. :)

    I hope you guys rlease it soon :)

  64. I can’t wait. I really like the look!

  65. Our band’s first gig is Dec 7. Should I expect this amazing-looking template to drop with enough time to put a basic page together?

    Thanks!

  66. Aaarggghhhhhhhh!!!!! Cannot …. wait …. must have …. band theme….

    Sorry :) Really looking forward to this one.. And timing (it’ll be soon I know) is impeccable.

    Thanks.

    • Looks Great! I always enjoy the well thought out & functional themes! Keep up the great work! Big Shout out from: Westillage New York, NY

  67. I like it so far. I wonder if it could be converted to sell digital goods like stock illustration and photography?

  68. Crossing my fingers you’ll be able to add video display like you have in eVid for music videos! :)

    Just my 2 – 7 cents.

  69. hey, I’m looking for a programmer to help in the installation of wordpress template, what template do you recommend? Is this template which is now on my blog is cool?

    greetings

  70. Great theme designed. Can’t wait to the release date. Anyone knows the exactly released date by Elegant Themes?

  71. Is it ready to use now brother?
    Coz as i referred the comments it seems that still its in pipeline.

    regards,

  72. Is this still not released? Not going to be?

  73. I wasn’t looking for a band website but was simply browsing around all the themes when I stumbled upon this one.

    And it’s music. Incredible music.
    The songs are absolutely beautiful.

    Shazaam was not help but YouTube finally solved my quest.
    You are terrifically talented, Nick.
