We do take still submissions at email@example.com (links only, no attachments please) but to be honest, we’ve never worked with a band who has just submitted us a demo unsolicited.
The best way to get your band heard or noticed, by us, or any label is just go out and play shows or push your band online. We are constantly being hit up by friends, “Hey have you heard of ______? They played this show I was at the other day and they were awesome, you guys should check them out.”
Build up your band in your area and play with touring bands. Our bands are always telling us, “Hey, this band played the show tonight that were pretty good, you should check out their bandcamp.”
Send your demo out to blogs and music sites. Get it out there and reviewed. The more eyes that are on it the better.
All so true.

Come out to the flintlocal432 Friday and support not only the awesome local bands, but a venue dedicated to growing the Flint community and its music scene:
We are very lucky to have an all ages space where anyone can experience a myriad of local acts from all different genres.
It was incredibly cool to see a group like intoitoveritofficial choose to play in Flint last Friday over other places in Michigan.
It obviously doesn’t have to be a show we play at, but please consider bringing some friends and dropping in on some shows to support the Local.
And in a less serious tone, here is a video of us painting the rock in Flint really fast:
Aw, thanks so much for the kind words you guys! Will say again how cool it is y’all painted the Rock for this show. I’ve been known to do that myself for a few Local shows in the past :-)
Everyone come party on Friday! Sprowt are one of our favorite bands, always helping out at shows they aren’t playing too, very very great dudes. It’s a Secret are coming out from Muskegon. It is going to be a super rad time!
