Slash Offers Unsigned Bands The Chance To Record 3-Song EP With Him
February 1, 2010
Guitar Center has teamed up with one of the greatest guitarists to ever walk the earth to present YOUR NEXT RECORD with SLASH, a groundbreaking unsigned band competition that will give one up and coming band the chance to win the ultimate career-altering opportunity: record a 3-song EP with the legendary producer behind Guns N’ Roses – Mike Clink and have Slash write, record and perform on the winning artists’ single.
Starting today, February 1st through April 30th bands across the U.S. are invited to submit their music at YourNextRecord.com for a chance to win one of the sweetest prize packages ever offered in rock.
Slash says, “The formula that used to work for discovering new artists has been decimated and the opportunities for really talented bands to be heard is extremely limited. That’s why it’s so important to me and Guitar Center to provide a situation where new talent can be discovered. This is an incredibly interesting way to find and help launch a really great band that hasn’t been able to get their foot in the door otherwise.”
