(PRESS RELEASE) U.S.-based, Nationally-distributed Music Book Publisher Rock ‘N’ Roll Books is seeking bands- unsigned or otherwise- who grew up on and were musically influenced by legendary alt-rock band the Meat Puppets for inclusion on a Bonus Music Sampler that will be included with an authorized book on the band being released in 2009.
This is NOT a Tribute compilation, so in other words, we are not seeking COVERS of Meat Puppets tunes, but rather are featuring ORIGINAL ROCK/METAL bands on the sampler who sound derivatively alike or similar to the Meat Puppets in some manner (be it songwriting, vocal range, riffs, etc) performing an ORIGINAL song on the compilation. The sampler will be sold with each copy of the book, and each participating band will receive promos, as well as mention in all press materials, and the opportunity to be part of the first and only authorized book by/on the band.
Interested bands should email firstname.lastname@example.org with a web link (myspace preferably) where we can check out your sound before getting back in touch with further details regarding a formal spot on the cd sampler. Please also reference this specific comp in your reply. Visit www.myspace.com/meatpuppetsinthestudiobook for more info on the project as well!
