Here's a common (and very legitimate) question: “what goes in my press kit band bio?” We here at the Sleeping Village enjoy receiving a solid bio, but, beyond that, we enjoy when bands handling their own PR maximize their potential. As such, here's a template and some advice on how to construct a band bio that does its job. A .doc and PDF download are available at the bottom!
In short, the band bio serves two major purposes:
A. introducing your band in a succinct but curiosity-inducing fashion, and
B. providing useful and necessary info to the reviewer/label/distributor/PR firm/etc.
We provide thoughtful reviews of music that is heavy, gloomy...and loud enough to wake us from slumber. Written by a highfalutin peasantry.
