Daniel DeFonce of Unique Leader Records / Continental Touring on The MetalSucks Podcast #329

0

Continental Touring booking agent and Unique Leader Records marketing guru Daniel DeFonce joins the show this week. Dan has a whole lot of advice for bands, including his strategy on how to book a tour for a band that has a lot of buzz behind them, the importance of a band being self-sufficient in promoting, emerging trends in social media (and some nostalgia on the switch from MySpace to Facebook), and the importance of a band’s visual aesthetic and merchandising. He also shares his thoughts on a band having a “uniform” on stage and how fans need to push themselves harder to get out of their house and go to live events.

Petar, Brandon, and Sylvia discuss Insane Clown Posse’s dirty snow-eating tactic for defeating the coronavirus, Michael Bolton auditioning for Black Sabbath, and Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell returning to the studio for a solo record.

Songs: Brand of Sacrifice – “Charlotte,” Signs of The Swarm – “Malformed Dissonance,” Viscera – “Immersed in Ire”
