The No Label Needed Contest and Series presented by Scion, in collaboration with MetalInsider.net, will help one band leave labels behind and take on the industry all on their own. The series will show readers how it’s done, all while helping one special contest-winning band get ahead in a spectacular way.
From 1/20 NOW EXPANDED through 2/8, unsigned acts can submit demo packages at www.metalinsider.net/nolabelneeded.
Twenty finalists will be selected and one winner will be voted on by the public and a panel artists, agents, writers and managers who work with the likes of Killswitch Engage, As I Lay Dying and Shadows Fall. Voting will run from 2/9 through 3/8. The grand prize winner, to be announced on 3/15, will win all the help and education they need to become a truly self-sufficient artist without having to sign a traditional record deal.
