Question: heyy guys, i was wondering what we need to do to get signed by you guys. we\'re a new band in south east london, and we could really do with being signed. what do we need to do to get your seal of approval? thanks From: email@example.com.
Answer: Simple answer is write great songs, and tour them, and tour them some more, and keep touring- and if the lucky breaks go your way- right sound, right time- then its possible you might get signed to Earache or any label.One thing new bands have no clue about is the sheer number of other bands clamouring for the same thing....we get approaches on a daily basis- dozens- so up to 4000 bands yearly come to our attention...and since we only sign 4-5-6 bands per year, the simple maths says to be signed you have to be better than the 3995 others.its TOUGH ODDS, but some bands do fit the bill for this label, and they do get signed, so its not impossible.Read more on this topic HERE
