Let’s rally and send these kids to New York City! Dylan Burr, the star of our Faces Don’t Lie series, and his band Lorus need your vote. According to the website, the No Label Needed contest allows fans to vote once per day and accounts for 20% of the final decision for who wins.
The winning band will receive a personalized, all-encompassing tutorial focused on the secrets and tips needed to achieve success in the music industry through DIY means of marketing. Winners will be mentored by the members of Shadows Fall, record an EP produced by Machine (Lamb of God, Every Time I Die, Suicide Silence), shop for their stage and photo shoot clothing with Maria Brink (In This Moment) and Rob “Blasko” Nicholson (Ozzy) and receive advice from the likes of Ben Weinman of The Dillinger Escape Plan. Their website will be re-designed, their merch re-imagined and radio and press campaigns mounted to promote their EP by the best in their fields.
Let’s send Dylan and crew off to meet these dudes and get some learnin’!
We started this site to talk about and promote the music we love and the crazy characters associated with that music. Dylan Burr has been the face (literally) of our Friday Facial series for a while now and his band Lorus is a finalist in a Metal Insider contest. Here’s what he said about this opportunity:
If we win we get to go to NY and record an EP with a hotshot producer and have meetings with A&R and PR people to help give us a leg up.
So, Dylan needs your help. Go to this page and vote like mad for Lorus. Don’t be scared, there are a lot of dudes with scary beards standing in front of cages and brick walls and dark skies. Scroll down and to the right where our heroes are well lit and pleasant looking chaps who just happen to WAIL on their instruments. Listen to “Empire Over All” and then vote for them. Do it now.
You can vote once a day, every day. Voting ends on March 8th.
We just received this memo from Dylan Burr, famous from the Faces Don’t Lie series here on GLONO:
Lorus is playing tonight at Subterranean with Dub Trio. You may know them better as the backing band for Mike Patton’s Peeping Tom. We’re super excited for this show. It’s the first show with our new drummer.
