uh, um... to tell you the truth -- we don't.
heartfirst is not interested in hearing from your band, unless we know you personally or if you are good friends of another band that is on heartfirst. we already know most of the bands that we would love to work with. a personal relationship to us is more important than the music. we do not go band-shopping around the world though this would probably make our label more hip in the eyes of many.
what makes a band so special that it would be considered for a release on heartfirst:
we wanna know at least one band-member personally
you should have a strong punk attitude, this means dedication to the counterculture
you must be a good liveband -- we don't judge bands by recordings alone
after you read this warning and you still feel like you want to send us something, it is totally at your own risk. do not expect a reply, do not expect to get anything back ... and we really prefer chrome-tapes to cd-rs. thank you and all the best to you and your band.
