THE BAND SUBMISSION PROCEDURE WAS UPDATED IN SEPTEMBER 2008. PLEASE READ BELOW.
We appreciate your support helping us to be a comprehensive and up-to-date website. As a consequence we constantly have a huge order backlog for submissions. Please read this instructions and try to implement the requirements. It will help to speed up the process.
Please suggest only bands/artists which have a signed status. This means either a physical item like CD/DVD/Vinyl for sale on demand must be available and/or complete albums for download are offered via services like CD Baby and similar. Otherwise please use the PA forum topic Unsigned Bands where site monitors take care of business.
You have two options for submitting a band/artist for the inclusion on this website
1) open up a new thread in the Suggest Bands and Artists forum topic. If you want to point out audio samples please be sure that you only provide legal links for mp3 download or streaming like MySpace pages for example. Site monitors are picking up your suggestions
2) collect sound samples and other helpful information, as stated below. Create a ZIP or RAR archive with all this included, upload it to a free filesharing service (RAPIDSHARE.com is actually recommended because very fast all around the globe) and finally forward the download link to firstname.lastname@example.org as well as your explanation of why this band/artist should be added to ProgArchives and in which sub-genre
Please use this email address only for submitting bands for inclusion. Inquiries about the progress or other issues will be ignored.
When a band is added PA collaborators will inform about this here http://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=63
We are also working on a transparent workflow where ProgArchives members can follow up the evaluation process.
Thanks for contributing!

Even prog is rooted in the blues, at some point...
