Converse Rubber Tracks x MetalSucks: Five Featured Bands Announced!
We all know that Converse makes awesome sneakers (no exaggeration, our own Axl Rosenberg hasn’t worn any other brand since roughly 2004), but did you know that they also have a recording studio in Brooklyn… which they allow bands to use 100% FREE of charge? It’s true! Converse Rubber Tracks is a state of the art recording studio, complete with its own qualified sound engineers and too much equipment to even list here, that can be used by musicians of any genre to record their own music for FREE, the rights to which they completely retain. It sounds too good to be true… and yet, it’s a really real thing!
MetalSucks has teamed up with Converse Rubber Tracks to give five bands the opportunity to record in the studio for a day absolutely free of charge, inviting bands to apply through an open submission process this past May and June. Axl and Vince have sifted through all the band entries — yes, every single one of them! — and have chosen their favorites. The following five bands will be recording at Converse Rubber Tracks in August for a day each, after which the songs they record will be released right here on MetalSucks and featured in a video series on Metal Injection. Here are the bands:
- Axeslasher (Denver, CO)
- White Widows Pact (Brooklyn, NY)
- Ruby The Hatchet (Philadelphia, PA)
- Torrential Downpour (Clifton, NJ)
- No Salvation (Worcester, MA)
We’ll be previewing each band in detail, one per week, leading up to the recording sessions in mid-August. We can’t wait to hear what these bands lay down in the Rubber Tracks studio. Look out!
