UTG Interviews Surrogate

Posted by - 01:37 PM on 04/29/13
You can read Under The Gun's recent interview with Daniel Taylor of Surrogate here.
The downside of it though, is that it sort of marginalizes what you do, because thereís not the credibility of being on a label, or the push that a label gives you to help you breakthrough to press and blogs. So you kind of get lumped in with the unwashed masses of bedroom bands and high school garage bands, which is fine: thereís a lot of amazing music being made these days in bedrooms and by teenagers in garages. But in terms of trying to gain any sort of broad exposure for your band, especially when your band is just a bunch of late-20s/early-30s beardos, not having a label to hang your hat on makes it near impossible to really get anything cooking on the publicity side, in the absence of being able to spend the money to do it yourself. Overall, though, itís been worth the downside to be able to just do what we do when we want to do it.
