Greyday launches mobile website

Check out news and tour dates on the run! Greyday is proud to announce the launching of a new site: greyday.mobi (.mobi being the totally unnecessary standard suffix for mobile sites). The url is designed specifically for use on mobile phones (must have access to mobile web to use), simply log on to your provider’s mobile web service and key greyday.mobi into the url space to get the latest news from the label and its artists, tour dates, free wallpaper, free ringtones, video, and links to mp3s. The site is just past Beta (what would that make it? Gamma?), so please feel free to send us comments on content.

The ringtones (currently .mp3 only, though we are working on providing other formats) are exclusive to the site and will be swapped out at regular intervals with new ones, so enjoy switching your ringtone around!

Please note that, depending on your mobile plan, your cellular provider may charge you for using mobile web. Please also note that mobile websites are INTENTIONALLY stripped down significantly, and not meant to be viewed in regular web browsers (in other words, if you view it on your PC, it’s supposed to look like that)…
