The hunt is on for the highest calibre and hardest working unsigned bands in the UK!
The Bloodstock team are proud to work in collaboration with Whatever Next Records – who with 7 Compilations CD’s under their belt to date are now looking at presenting an opportunity for 3 new CD's to be used as a further platform for breaking acts, a way onto Bloodstock’s New Blood stage and a concerted effort at aiding charities.
The three CD's are earmarked for a January 2012 release in order to coincide with the start of the new Bloodstock Metal 2 The Masses Campaign and will act as not only a device to get at least 1 band from the CD's to play at Bloodstock irrespective of the competition but a networking tool and promotional angle for all the bands involved. The CD's are a break even project but the bands can expect to be added to the Altascope magazine and profiled on our websites whilst the CD's themselves will be sold until we have raised £2000 for charity.
Director of Whatever Next Records Adam Fillary says:
"Sharing our vision for the future of music has been a key part to the strong bond between Bloodstock open Air and The Rock Matrix, the company that runs regions of Bloodstock's Metal 2 The Masses, Band Quest and Whatever Next Records. Shoulder to shoulder we've built avenues and opportunities for developing artists and pushing the boundaries of what’s achievable and now we are are here doing it together".
Bloodstock’s Metal 2 The Masses organiser Simon Hall added:
"This initiative means a great deal to Bloodstock as we feel its something that is overlooked by much of the music industry, but also recognise how essential this is to entice and nurture developing live and recording artists – not only to compete against the influx of entertainment offerings outside of music, but also to be part of developing the bands of tomorrow."
