Submission FAQ


We’re open to many genres and have various playlists featuring those. We don’t feature RnB, Afro Beats, Trap, House, Techno (and related). In fact, We call ourselves For The Love Of Bands and don’t feature many electronic genres so be it might be best to find a curator within your niche. We only feature Hip Hop, Rap on our Indie Alt Hip Hop playlist.

E-mail support@fortheloveofbands.com and tell us what’s up!

We try to listen to all regular submissions. Because of the volume of submissions, we simply can’t listen to all submissions, let alone respond to them. We try to e-mail all artists that are accepted on one of our playlists with the good news though.

All review submissions end up in a shared Dropbox folder that we share with all contributors. Every contributor picks his/her next writing project from there.

We’ll tag you on your socials.

We share on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Steemit, Whaleshares, Narrative, Pinterest, Feedspot, Publc and via RSS.
