Coming off Din Within’s recent release of “Changes” on the Yes Tribute album from Mellow Records, Digital Din is planning the creation and release of a tribute album to the seminal prog-metal band Queensr˙che. It occurred to us that we have lots of friends who have bands/projects that could potentially contribute.
Before you read further, understand that our vision for a tribute album is to “re-imagine” the original song with a new perspective – “perfect covers” are pointless to the listener, as the original album is available… why would someone buy an album of bands that aren't Queensr˙che, trying to sound just like Queensr˙che, when most of our potential buyers will have the original band’s entire discography already?
So, a creative approach to the music is not only recommended, it is essentially required.
We’re particularly interested in considerably different or unique takes on the material – while I’m not so sure a smooth jazz version of “Revolution Calling” would make the cut, having a singer-songwriter do “Best I Can” might be really nifty. Or a punk band doing “Don’t Trust the Needle.” You get the drift. So, you don’t have to be a melodic prog metal band to participate. In fact, being one might work against you. :-)
Here’s the straight dope:
This will be a nice “bonus” release for you to get your band’s name into the hands of music fans.
How to submit/rules/guidelines:
Understand and agree to all of the above? For consideration, please visit and “Like” the Digital Din Page at Facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/digitaldin ) , and use the “send message” to connect us to links of your previously recorded music.
Include the following info:
Thanks for your interest – We look forward to what should be an amazing project!
