How To Make Your Band Stand Out Using Tactics The Major Labels Have Mastered – With Infinite Signal

Releasing an album or EP is one of the biggest moments in a band’s career. Many successful artists release ten to twenty albums over their career, while others release a handful or less.

Some bands, like Rammstein, may go over a decade without releasing new music… Yet others seem to release an album practically every year or two.

What all established artists have in common, though, is that they have a well thought out marketing plan for their music to ensure it performs as well as it possibly can.

Not only that, but they probably didn’t post about being in the studio when they were actually in the studio.

Instead, they held onto that content and shared it at the right time to give their release a proper push.

This is exactly what Infinite Signal did to promote their new EP, Love Me Not, and the results have already paid for themselves.
