The Prog-Sphere label and website is accepting submissions from unsigned bands for their first ever Progstravaganza CD edition. They will review all submissions and then select 11 songs (up to 7 minutes in length) that will be sent for a final master. The deadline for submissions is September 10th, 2014.
The roots of Progstravaganza started as a compilation series from their label in 2010, and in the past have included such notable names as Astra, Scale the Summit, The Wrong Object, Exivious, Blotted Science, Soft Machine, Fughu, Galahad, and many more. The twentieth edition will be called Landmarks and besides new bands it will feature some of the artists that were featured on the previous samplers. Prog Sphere is also starting a mini-documentary series titled The Story of Progstravaganza, where some of the artists that were featured in the past will be talking about progressive music today.
On top of that, every band is showcased with an interview on the Progstravaganza website and is also featured on ProgSphere’s Progify streaming service. Baddass!
Besides the inclusion on the sampler, Progstravaganza CD also brings features in a special printed Progstravaganza magazine, 6-month promotional campaign, interviews, reviews, lyric/photo videos, polls, commentaries… More features will be added.
Artists interested in taking part on the first physical Progstravaganza edition can get in touch with Prog Sphere at firstname.lastname@example.org, with included link of a song and short biography.
