Attention New Zealand rock and metal bands! Blackout presents “Keep it Live and Loud”

Brutal Tunes, Metal News, Steff, Tr00 Metal Life


You might remember in Feb I wrote about Blackout – a NZ metal radio show on Flat FM from 10-2pm, Tuesday and Sunday nights. Well, I am super stoked to announce the “2012 Keep it Live and Loud” NZ Band comp – your rock or metal band could win a host of great prizes including a label and distro deal, a merchandise pack, a promo photo shoot, six weeks of airplay, mentoring with Blacklist, exposure on Steff Metal and a host of other wicked prizes. I’ll be joining a panel of distinguished and hairy guest judges to find the best rock/metal acts in the country and give an up-and-coming band a break.

Thanks to the wicked sponsors: Scream in Black Productions, The Flat, Brutalitees, Blacklist, The Coda Lounge, and … um, me.


All the info is there on the poster, and you’ve only got till April 19th to enter. So get your MP3’s and Band Bio in ASAP. If you’re struggling to write a bio, I wrote an article on how to write a kick ass musician bio for Think Like a Label, which might be of use.

Check out the Blackout Facebook Page for more details, and don’t forget to send your entry in to THEFLAT.BLACKOUT AT GMAIL DOT COM.
