I actually still gain quite a few fans through myspace. It's a good place to start at least.

maybe these have been mentioned already?
http://www.punkrockers.com
http://www.punkrock.org
the first is less fancy designed and slower to work with, but seems to have better and more responsive people than the latter. there's also punx.com, but i wouldn't recommend it. you could post stuff on there, but they needa work on sorting out their site a lot

http://www.tunecore.com is an awesome resource to get your music in pretty much any online distributor (From iTunes to Amazon).

It also has a widget that you can post on your websites that allows people to listen to your music... it has a link directly to your iTunes store... Awesome!

Great thread!

Hey man, would mind including my pop punk blog, Late Night Sing-Alongs, on that list? We're starting to do more news/ interviews/reviews, but we also put up free downloads from up and coming bands in the genre and this is something we will always continue to do. Basically all of the music we post have been given to us from the bands themselves to post.

I just launched a new site this weekend, you can check it out at www.mymusicscene.com. Here's what the site is all about.

myMusicScene is specifically designed for bands, artists and performers alike to promote all of your live performances and events. It's an easy-to-use, free promotional tool and the one place on the web where fans can find all of their music scene's artist's live performances right that day on the main page (and also find their favorite artist's event's all listed on your own profile). A fan can easily launch MMS and choose their local "scene" to find out what events are happening that very day and at what time, as well as information for upcoming events that week or even events planned farther down the road.

Put yourself in your fan's shoes: It's Friday night. You're in the mood to go to a concert, but you don't know which of your favorite local artists are performing tonight, let alone if they're performing tonight or with who. Instead of browsing around to their multiple social networking profiles to get the latest scoop, you wish to yourself that you could see every local artist that was playing a show tonight in your area.

This is where myMusicScene comes in.

Benefits of signing up on myMusicScene include -

- Your own artist profile with a custom URL to promote your events!
- Your show is listed on the front page of our website the day of and in the proper scene viewable for all visitors to see!
- Make new fans by listing your other social networking sites which are displayed in your myMusicScene profile when a new fan views your profile!
- Wish to see a new feature in myMusicScene? We're all ears! We work with our community one-on-one to build a better myMusicScene each and every day.
- It's free!

In just over 36 hours, we've received over 600 unique page visits from different countries around the world including Mexico, France, Belgium, Colombia, Austria, New Zealand, Australia, Japan and more! Join a community of artists on a brand new site that's spreading rapidly across the web!

I agree all of those are awesome websites, and invaluable tools for promotion.

I would also add
signmeto.roadrunnerrecords.com

It's a great place to test your music and possibly get heard by A&R reps.

only if you're aspiring to be in the Roadrunner Records family.

Epitaph Records has a system like this too called "Demo-lition" if you guys are interested in these sorts of things.

You can add my blogspot to this for metal bands.

On average bands get 200-300 downloads upon posting.

My site, http://hearhearmusic.com, was built to provide as much press for up-and-coming / unsigned bands as I give to artists who are already signed. Feel free to email me at kroessman@gmail.com if you're a band and you have:

a) an album to promote for review only (send me a digital download .. I won't share it)
b) a single you'd like to promote ... and are willing to allow me to post, along with bio material
c) if you're interested in doing an interview, we can talk, but I'd still need to hear your music first.

If you email me, just please mention Hear Hear in your subject line so I can archive your email separate from everything else :)

I listen to as much music as I can, and try to respond to everything I receive, even if it's not going to make it onto the site. I know how important feedback is for independents.

Rock on, this thread is awesome!

EDIT: Also, please try to read through some of my site's reviews to get an idea if you're a good fit ... screaming metal 99% of the time won't make the site, just so you're aware :) There's got to be at least some sense of melodic structure or hook to get my attention :)
