punk/hardcore/ska/emo blog looking for bands to feature

Hi guys

I've recently started a blog, the idea is to feature bands that have released records available for free download, hopefully get them abit of publicity.

http://freepunkrock.tumblr.com/


I'm going to try to feature something at least once a month, hopefully bi-weekly.

I have some bands lined up that will probably be next but obviously am looking for more constantly.

If you would like to put your release forward then there's a couple of conditions:

1. The blog is for punk/hardcore/ska/emo, there's a slight chance some thrashy metal might get on if it's REALLY good but other genre's are just going to be ignored.

2. It's based on complete recordings, albums, ep's etc. So must be at least 3 songs, no single tracks.

3. The whole thing must be available for free download via bandcamp, facebook, your own hosting etc

4. If I have to 'like' your band on facebook to listen I'm not going to. 'Like' to download is fine however

5. This is not a review blog, if your band sucks then it simply won't get featured, I don't see the point wasting time writing about stuff that isn't any good. The idea is to showcase genuinely really good bands that are out there.


OK, so if you're still interested then submit to freepunkrock@hotmail.co.uk

Also hope you check out the couple of features we already have and follow us on tumblr if you have one!

thanks

It doesn't matter if my band's not from the UK right? I'm send my band in anyway, but if it does matter, then whatever.
