Yes - I'm going back to helping the new acts!
SO this is what I'm going to be doing now!
- Unsigned bands - I'm going to focus on a lot more unsigned bands and acts that have just been established and post about their tracks and shows etc...
- Premières - if you'd like your music to be premièred by us drop me an email to - email@example.com - and we'll hook something up! We have 50,000+ followers we get a reach to week in week out. We'd push the post for a whole 7 days and help you draw more of a following through our social media channels.
- Track of the week - This was a big part of the growth of the website to begin with and I feel like since I took it out of the blog we've been missing something, so if you've got a new track and you want people to hear it drop me an email to - firstname.lastname@example.org - and make the subject title TOTW2017 and I'll check it out! I'll do my best to respond to all emails!
- Weekly playlist - Like most sites do, I'm going to start a Spotify playlist, as well as keeping the Soundcloud account ticking over.
- Interviews - I'll be making more of an effort to do interviews, this'll be from the small to the big acts, I mean if I get given the opportunity to interview The 1975, Kasabian or Bloc Party again of course I'll be doing it!
- Festivals - I'm not going to be completely out of the loop and I'll be making sure that festival news and line-up announcements will still be published on the website. After all, that's where a lot of people find out about new bands these days!
- Album reviews - I'll be doing a minimum of an album review a week, ideally aimed towards the small bands who find it hard to get a review in, but please do expect me to review some albums from established acts too.
- COMPETITIONS!!! - We're bringing back competitions, be sure to 'like' our Facebook page and 'follow' us on Twitter to keep up to date with them!
- Collaborations - We're looking to collaborate with other zines, facebook pages and sites - so if you run one or know someone who does get in touch!
If you'd like to submit anything to me please email me at - email@example.com - with the subject titles as...
- News features - NEWS2017
- Track of the week features - TOTW2017
- Album reviews - ALBUM2017
Lets start a revolution! It's not like every day that a website that has over 50,000 followers changes their direction and aims at at new and unsigned bands.
