EP and LP SUBMISSIONS:
To submit your album, email firstname.lastname@example.org with a coherent promo package, if you don’t have one or not sure how to then I recommend hiring a PR company or filling our the questionnaire below. I need an MP3 direct download (Dropbox, google drive, bandcamp code, etc) of the release. Encode the MP3s properly, (MP3TAG is a free tool – fill in “album artist” as your band name) because I download every album into a pool and if the media player doesn’t make sense of track order or band name, you might not get heard. Upcoming albums get priority. I don’t accept streaming links or youtube videos as review submissions but feel free to include it with the rest of the required info to use in the article. We get a lot of promos every day so the easier it is for me to access your content the more likely you will get covered, I read each one and listen to each one, if I cover it I will contact you but I can’t respond to them all. Navigate to our team page for their emails to increase your odds. Looking forward to hearing your work.
Include direct download or bandcamp code.
Include artwork that’s of decent image quality (Generally between 700×700 and 1500×1500).
VIDEO PREMIER SUBMISSIONS:
email@example.com. We are happy to do video premieres, we prefer to be the first to premier it (48 hour exclusivity) but we can also do premieres for labels and firms who want an Australian promoter for a global release as the site is based in Aus and has a strong Aus following.
Noob Heavy Australia (only) YT:
IF you are an Australian metal band who has an EP or LP release no matter how old, then I am more than happy to upload it to my new channel. Format is just the album with album art, simple. Everything I upload gets free promotion for its lifetime as I post the videos around regularly or when I see a good chance, like when people ask for recommendations or in FB groups, or even Reddit. firstname.lastname@example.org
Join The Team:
Email email@example.com with a review in the general format of Noob Heavy. Five or more paragraphs of a recent album. If we jive I’ll send you some promos to choose from. After a couple of articles and organised promotions, you’ll be integrated into the core team with group chat, access to the full promo list and are added to the team page. We get early promos from many labels like Transcending Obscurity, Unique Leader, Willowtip, Season Of Mist, Century Media, The Artisan Era and many more. Credit (link of your choice up top) is given in the articles and tagged in social promotions so we can help you with your own platform in the process. Writers from other sites are welcome, I’m always happy to cross promote with fellow passionate music writers and you can definitely plug your band in your credits and get some support from being in the Noob Heavy community. We’re all pretty damn cool.
