The two-line bio for the above artist could be replaced by something derived from these two links:


As a starting point you could write:

STELLAR CIRCUITS is a Progressive Metal band based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, which was formed as a four-piece consisting of Ben BEDDICK (vocals), Andrew MERICLE (guitar), Jesse OLSEN (bass) and Tyler MENON (drums) in 2015 with the idea of creating progressively-minded music that resonates with the masses. The band's name is derived from a theory proposed in the 1970s called 'the eight-circuit model of consciousness', which attempts to understand the processes of the mind by breaking consciousness down into eight periods (or circuits) and twenty-four stages of neurological evolution.

The band's influences hail from a variety of music genres, but they are particularly inspired by bands such as A PEREFCT CIRCLE, DEFTONES, ANIMALS AS LEADERS and RUSH. Their debut self-titled 5-track EP was released towards the end of 2015, and they followed it up with a full album called 'Ways We Haunt' in November 2018. According to vocalist Ben Beddick, the concept behind this record developed from an idea he got from an American anthology crime drama TV series called 'True Detective', which suggested to him that our minds are like a house with many rooms.

The band has performed live extensively to promote its music, and in June 2019 a second guitarist, Jared STAMEY, was added to the line-up, with him making his stage debut at 'The Ramkat' live music venue and bar in their hometown of Winston-Salem, NC on 21st December 2019.

Edit: EP and Single added to main band page, just make sure I've done it correctly though!

I can get you a more recent picture as well. That one up there is from 2006.

Thanks, CHEST ROCKWELL bio updated, by genre team approval.

Hi, I appreciate being featured as an artist on this site but I really need my page changed because the information and links are very outdated.  Can I directly edit the page about myself?  Just so it's said, this isn't the first time I've inquired about getting my info / links updated.  My artist page is here: http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=8766

I'd be willing to change the info myself if you'd let me.  

Hoping to hear from someone about this issue, thanks!

No, you must request the change through the admin group.
Thank you for supporting independently produced music

Brady, PA users, unless they are Special Collaborators or Admins, don't have permissions to edit artists' pages. Even if they are artists themselves. Giving permissions is out of our team control. So you can't make changes on your page directly.

Please post here actual info (weblink and bio), then I'll make changes on your page. That's all we can offer.

I'd be happy to send you guys an updated Radiohead bio if you'd like. I noticed that it only goes up to Hail to the Thief, and they've released several more albums since then 
Take me down, to the underground
Won't you take me down, to the underground
Why of why, there is no light
And if I can't sleep, can you hold my life

^ You may try, Brendan. Current bio has its not-so-easy-to-follow style, in my opinion makes sense to add the continuation without changing the original text.

So it will look like:
Formed in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, England in 1985
:
:
Anyone into provocative sounds that blow the rock mold to smithereens is welcome to listen.

: : : Jeff Wagner, USA : : :

<The story of Radiohead after "Hail to the Thief">

Please keep in mind that to make updates we need to ask the genre team approval. Changes will not be made without their blessing.

Could I just rewrite the entire bio as long as it's well-written and meets their approval? I had a pretty good idea of what I was going to write anyway
Take me down, to the underground
Won't you take me down, to the underground
Why of why, there is no light
And if I can't sleep, can you hold my life

^ You can try to rewrite the bio, but I can't guarantee that the genre team will agree with the change. 
If you write only updates highly likely they will be accepted. In case of rewritten bio it's not so obvious.
