The No Label Needed Contest and Series, presented by Scion in collaboration with MetalInsider, will help one band leave labels behind and take on the industry all on their own. From 1/18 through 2/1, unsigned acts can submit demo packages at metalinsider.net/nolabelneeded. Twenty finalists will be selected and one winner will be voted on by a panel of label heads, A&R executives, writers and site readers to win all the help and education they need to become a truly self-sufficient artist without having to sign a traditional record deal. For further information, contact Jamie Roberts (roberts@bigmachinemedia.com) or Leo Lavoro (leo@bigmachinemedia.com) at 646-395-2600.
