ATTENTION EVERY ROCK / METAL BAND OF ALL SHADES BASED IN NORTHERN IRELAND. RECORDING / ALBUM RELEASE OPPORTUNITY** **PLEASE SHARE EVERYWHERE!!**
I’m delighted announce that The Distortion Project and Start Together Studio Belfast have teamed up to present a unique opportunity for 3 Heavy bands that are based in Northern Ireland. This is an unprecedented chance for 3 acts to record their next album for free and have it released on the newly resurrected Distortion Project Records.
The three chosen bands will win one week’s studio time plus mastering at Start Together to record their album. The Distortion Project will then release that album on CD, vinyl and digitally through our respective distribution partners and the DPs online shop. In addition, we will organise a sustained PR campaign via our media partners to ensure the release is properly promoted. The band will also receive physical copies to sell themselves. In addition to this, The Distortion Project will provide further help in the form of booking tours, shows and festivals (where possible), to support the release as well as general help and guidance, planning, advice, strategies etc. This will be specific to each band and tailored to suit their needs. All at no cost to the artist in question. This is a start-to-finish, one stop deal where every aspect of the process is managed and aided by us, from recording the first note to releasing the album, promotion, distribution and touring.
The application process is now open and we are inviting bands from Northern Ireland to get in touch. If you play heavy riffs of any description – whether it be heavy metal, black, thrash, death, modern, progressive, hard rock, stoner rock or any of the many genres of heavy music then this is for you. To apply, email your EPK (or link to it) together with your social media links and a Youtube video and how you meet the additional criteria listed below to [email protected]hotmail.com
