We're adding indie artists to an Alkaline Trio tribute that's already comprised of established artists in hopes of promoting new talent
The idea is simple. Pay homage to an artist that has been influential in the development of countless artists. And the best way to show that respect and to properly pay tribute to an artist like Alkaline Trio is by following a similar path. That being said, we already have an Alkaline Trio cover album comprised of established artists like Allister, Punchline, August Premier, This Time Next Year, Into It. Over It., Jonah Matranga (Far), Ace Enders (The Early November), Joe Wilson, Barely Blind and others. But what we're attempting to do is add quality independent artists in an attempt to showcase some up-and-coming talent.
In essence, we're attempting to get artists that deserve more face time, a little bit more press simply by participating on a compilation that features a number of prominent artists.
I have a list of independent artists that want to participate on this album. Unfortunately there's not enough of a budget secure recording time for these independent artists. So if this budget is met we'll be able to add an additional ten artists (or more) and thus be able to record an additional ten (or more) cover songs on top of the 12 tracks that are already confirmed and in my possession.
Of course this goal isn't meant to gloss over the fact that we also want to add additional artists to the album so that we can cover countless more of our favorite Alkaline Trio tracks.
