We already have some great Boston bands on board and have room for one or two more releases! Our target date for mailing these out is April 10th, so let us know ASAP if you are interested in including a disc. Also, our basic math on this is that it’s only going to cost each band about $200 to mail discs to 350 stations.
Original post below explains our intent with the campaign:
Launch Over is exploring the possibility of pooling the funds of several bands in order to cut down expenses for conducting a mailing campaign to college radio stations. The target date for the campaign is late March / early April. We’re looking for new, professionally recorded releases by Boston-based artists. Our vision – to build a package and develop a set of bio/press materials (including one-sheets and station ID packages) for up to 5 records to package together and send to approximately 300 radio stations. Although we will follow up with as many stations as possible, this is not a full-service campaign and we will not track charting, etc. In other words, this is not a true replacement for traditional radio servicing and is not appropriate for artists concerned with CMJ radio chart accomplishments. This is instead intended to be a low-cost alternative to a traditional full campaign. Artists included in this package would simply pay their share of the shipping/packaging costs and receive all other included services at no cost whatsoever. Estimated cost for entire campaign:
$300-$500 -see above- (plus artists would need to provide 300 copies of their CD). Please let us know if you are interested in joining forces with us!
