Important Information To Know Before Sending Us Materials
We accept CDs, cassettes, vinyl, 8-Tracks, toys, books, and MP3s. We review demos if you send them, just make sure you include contact information. Hard-copy material will get preferential treatment over digital, it only seems fair to those bands that use their own funds to ship us something.

Also if you send us a digital release to cover please, for the love of God, include cover art and lyrics. You put a lot of time into writing them but sometimes it’s a little hard for us to make out every word you’re singing. This mostly goes for bands who shout, scream, or otherwise vocalize in non-singing ways, but throw us a bone. Pretty please?
