Promotion RequestBands, you want to have your music aired on Radio Diabolus ?
Please read the following information! To be considered for airplay please ensure:
Each Submission should be bundled in a ZIP (.zip) file. ZIP files are essentially virtual compressed FILE FOLDER.
They can hold SEVERAL different types of files all together as ONE FILE. If you do not already have a program that makes/opens ZIP files,
we recommend the open source (legally free) program 7-ZIP. Once you have installed and run 7-ZIP, your ready to ZIP your submission.
Each ZIP should include ALL of the following:
(a) ALL TRACKS in MP3 format (192 kb/s Minimum).
(b) a CD COVER scan (300x300 pixels Minimum).
If your submission is a DEMO or ADVANCED release without a CD COVER, then a BAND LOGO will be acceptable as a last resort
(also no smaller than 300x300), but ALL submissions MUST include a CD COVER or Band logo for our system.
ALL MP3s should be clearly tagged/named so that the following info is CLEAR and easy to see:
(a) Band Name
(b) Song Name
An example would be My Band - My First Song.
MP3s should also include correct Metadata.
Because a full album with artwork can be between 30MB-150MB in size (depending on bitrate and size of the album),
you will need to either upload the ZIP to YOUR WEBSITE (by FTP) or use a FREE service like Hightales, SendSpace, Dropbox
Mega or WeTransfer.
We DO NOT guarantee that all submissions will receive airplay.
We WANT to support new and independent bands. Due to the amount of submissions we apologize for being unable to consider
entries whith the wrong FILE FORMAT, missing CD COVER/BAND LOGO and missing or incomplete tags.
It's surprising how many emails we get a day that just simply skip the "hellos" and say something like "Check out my band
at www..... and let us know if you can play us."
We simply do NOT have the time and it's not fair to those who actually take the time to properly format their submissions.
This is true for pretty much every station and a great tip for those who are new to submitting.
Please consider that zipping up your album with its artwork included is something you can use over and over for every station.
Send all links to your ZIP files or download links to: promotion[at]radio-diabolus.com
Also write us a mail if you want to send a Hardcopy for promotion !
Thank you for you interest in Radio Diabolus, we will contact you as soon as possible
