“The goal of a publicist is to get your band’s name into the eyes and ears of industry professionals—be it bloggers, labels, festivals, etc, and that takes time.”
“Don’t think that getting signed will solve all your problems, but don’t be afraid to explore your options either. Signing to a label usually means giving up some of your freedom (as does working with any kind of team) but it doesn’t have to be negative.”
Shadow of Whales recently talked with Justin from The Farsighted to discuss their start as a band, their interests, and the challenges, risks, and reasons of starting a Patreon account:
“This puts ALL of the pressure on us, there’s no excuse here if it doesn’t work out and we wanted a challenge that would put us to this test. If it doesn’t work it’s because we didn’t make it work, we didn’t create the right kind of content, we weren’t present enough, or didn’t work hard enough to promote or push the music out. We can’t blame Spotify or iTunes or the industry. This is all on us.”

Head over to Golden Mixtape to learn more about The Go Ahead and their latest music video for “About to Burst”:
“We wanted to give you as close to a live performance as possible. I think it would be cool to have a short movie with all the songs and the behind the scenes from that weekend.”
“Music is the easy part, you’re most likely doing it because you are passionate and it comes naturally to you. The hard part is not letting things get in the way. Have a good time but don’t let the lifestyle get in the way, because it’ll get in the way.”
