Samsung is holding an online Battle of the Unsigned Bands where the winner gets to tour with The Used in the ROCKSTAR Get A Life Tour happening this spring. Bands sign up free, upload bio, photos, music…then wait until Friday, January 25th for fan voting to begin. At that point, each band is given email templates and banners to help promote themselves in the contest.
Fans can win money by voting, apparently. It’s a pretty good viral marketing strategy — both bands and fans are incentivized to promote like crazy.
Anyway, if you’re in a band, you’re unsigned, and you’re interested, sign-up soon to get the jump on voting which starts this Friday. Good luck.]]>
