I've read the rules and faqs, but I'm just curious. If a band was submitted with, say, a digital EP without another (physical) version listed, could I in theory submit a band that released a digital demo or should I wait until it is released physically?


Just want to clarify.

Thanks.

If it's at least 20+ minutes, has a set track list, cover art, and real distribution (not just a file sharing site) and most importantly, is actually some what professional (meaning not some 12 year old turning on a tape recorder in mom's basement) then go for it. If it doesn't meet all those criteria though, don't be shocked if it gets rejected.

Thanks for the response.

It's a professional recording, has a set track list, cover art and real distribution (Bandcamp, but it will get a cassette release soon). It's only about 12 minutes long though (3 tracks), so I'm thinking it might be easier to hold off?
Unless using information about the forthcoming physical release is enough, along with the above?

Cheers.

Nope, you'll have to wait if it is only twelve minutes-worth of material.

Thought so. I'll keep an eye out for the physical release and submit it then.

Cheers.
