Joe Hardcore has posted a statement regarding This Is Hardcore Fest 2012.
Find out how to submit your band:
Its that time of year for me. I’ve got 2 of 4 nights’ headliners confirmed and I’ve lined up alot of ice cold stuff for 2012. I’d hate to miss out on some new bands doing ice cold stuff.
Before you go submitting your band you must know that despite the fact that TIH pays bands well to come and play, if you’re from Nepal (as one bad ass band last year was from) or even in the U.S and you just got a demo out and have never travelled before, you should really think of the cost involved in trying to come as a band to play. I often tell bands that I’d love to have them but I’d hate to see them travel out just for one show where the most they would get would be like $200 for 20 minutes.
Think about it and if you still want to submit- be my guest..
So how to submit your band??
send me A LINK to actual music from your band or some songs, though I’ve lost a few songs especially when they are untitled and named track 1 (I’ve got 2 gigs of demo links all named demo 09 or something generic)
I love bandcamps the best but don’t mind stereokiller either..
If you send me a myspace link, I won’t even bother as it will just take too long.
Also include some info about your band as in where you’re from etc.
Its helpful to know if you’re touring, have stuff recorded and being put out etc.
I’ll also check out mediafire links etc.
I got over 210 submissions last year and it was a daunting task to get back to everyone, on top of it I had some email issues that made some shit bounce back a few times.
things are hammered out and I’ve got it all set, so don’t be shy, send in your stuff and hopefully we can make something happen for you – if not on TIH but a show in philly…
