Can people name some Labels with a link to their site please. I'm more interest in British based labels. And also what is the actual difference between the two? I have a rough idea, but would like a polished one please.

But yeah, links please, more so in the UK thanks.

Lol at that girls' bass being bigger than her.

Sorry, I don't know anyone who will be interested in rock. Why, are you sending out demos?

Yeah, we're looking to send out our demo

we're recording it over the weekend so we'll be flying them out.

They'll be put up on here too.

But does anyone know any labels at all?

Slightly offtopic, but since i start touring this summer for money (we got offers like 1500 usd per show), i feel that record making could be close....but how does it work? how much royalty do you get? is it % from all sold albums, or you just get some sum of cash for your record before its released and after that you get no royalty?

I've heard both scenarios

Well, in theory you wouldn't actually care about the money.

My (indie) label give me about 80%, which is a massive amount, compared to major labels.
I charged £5 for my last album, and I'm charging £5 for my next album, in the spring. Obviously, larger labels have to charge more, because they have a lot of expenses for employees, advertising etc.

And to electricnightma- good luck.

Hm, i'm not in the business for the money, but we kinda need it right now, because we don't even use our own equipment (as in we rent our amps whenever we need them) and we also don't have our own rehearsal room (we use a really bad one from another band...and we also pay rent for that too). So if we got a nice little advance from a record or whatnot, then we could use that money to get our own rehearsal space + maybe some amps and stuff?

It depends a lot on the type of music you play, the label, your fanbase, your target-audience, the venue, etc.

But don't expect a lot of royalty for record sales. You're lucky if you get over %5. Most money is made on touring and merch. That's where bands make their money, not in the studio.

But it's definitely not a decision you want to rush. There have been so many potentially great bands that sign shady contracts when they're first starting, and it ends up ****ing them 5-10 years later. Don't be desperate.

you're good, just don't get cocky

you might be better sending your tape to radio stations and stuff, not like the regional BBC one though, respectable ones
