Getting recognized and distributed in the music industry is arguably harder than in any other entertainment profession. The folks at Harmonix are doing their part to see independent acts recognized by releasing their Network Affiliates Program. This will allow bands, through the Rock Band Music Network, to be connected to various means of promotion through social media and advertising concepts.
“The Affiliates Program is the next step in our goal of bridging the music and game spaces,” said Paul DeGooyer, Senior Vice President, Electronic Games and Music, MTV. “This initiative will promote the Rock Band Network to bands that frequent our affiliates’ sites and give the creators inside the Rock Band Network the opportunity to work with an amazing group of well-respected music distribution, promotion and technology sites, including Tunecore, Nimbit, Reverb Nation, Indaba Music and Topspin.”
