Landgraf On The State Of The Music Industry
August 27, 2015
Guitarist says young bands get no help – and adds that they’ll start writing next EP before end of the year
Down guitarist Bobby Landgraf says the music industry is doing little to help up-and-coming bands.
He says Down are in the fortunate position of having a team of people who work behind the scenes for them, but that new acts have to do it for themselves – often with limited success.
Landgraf tells The Front Row Report: “With Down there’s a label and management and people who take care of that kind of stuff. But when you’re up-and-coming, you’re trying to do it yourself.
“Shit, the industry is not even an industry any more. You just do what you can on your own and see how far you get it. Throw the flag up and see who salutes.”
