Hard Rock, in partnership with online music services company ReverbNation, is hosting an open registration for bands wishing to participate in a global battle of the bands competition until Monday, January 21.
Hard Rock Rising supports the music careers of aspiring artists around the globe by giving one local band the opportunity to participate in a World Tour at Hard Rock Cafe locations, film a music video, record an album with Hard Rock Records and receive the equivalent of $10,000 in new equipment.
To register, entrants can visit one of 96 participating Hard Rock Cafe Facebook pages – including Hard Rock Cafe London, Hard Rock Cafe Manchester and Hard Rock Cafe Edinburgh.
John Kirkpatrick, head of Music & Artist Relations, Hard Rock International said: “Hard Rock is eager to uncover another pool of budding talent and provide them with an international stage to showcase their talents,
“More than 12,000 bands entered Hard Rock Rising and nearly one million votes were cast by fans around the globe in 2012 – we hope the continued success of this programme will catapult an emerging band to success and introduce their sound to Hard Rock’s worldwide audience.”
