New Artists for Season 3

 
  • New Artists for Season 3

    It's now the end of Season 2, and we've seen four artists relegated from Division Four meaning they are dropped from the league system. This means we need FOUR new artists to replace them!

    So, in this thread, please post your favourite FOUR bands that meet the following criteria:

    1) Are a rock artist, i.e. an artist that plays a style of music incorporated into the rock genre.

    This can be pop/rock, alternative rock, progressive rock, post-rock, all forms of metal, acoustic rock (as an addition). This does not include standard pop such as girl bands, this does also not include stuff like electronica, although there may be exceptions, I will judge each case individually. If I am unsure as to whether an artist is a rock artist or not, I will use the Last.fm tags as my guide.

    2) Are British. British is defined as originating from the United Kingdom. The United Kingdom is defined as the countries of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and also the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, but not the Republic of Ireland. Eire has it's own league, please see the affiliates thread for a link. Originating is defined as:

    a) The artist or all or some members of the band of which the artist is comprised was born in the United Kingdom, as is the case with the majority of the bands in the competition. eg1: all Muse members were from various parts of the UK, and formed in Devon. eg2: Rainbow was formed by a British artist, and even though the rest of its members are of other nationalities, it still qualifies as a British band.

    b) The artist was formed in the UK. Eg: Placebo was formed by Luxembourgians, but was formed in London, thus being applicable.

    c) The artist was formed elsewhere, but before striking a record deal and producing its first solid release, became based in the UK. I don't think there are any current examples of this in this league, however for example, Rodrigo y Gabriela would be eligible for the Irish league because although they are Mexican, they launched their career from Dublin.

    3)Did not already participate in the league in the last season (season 2). This means artists that were relegated from Division Four in Season 1 can be voted back in if you so wish, however, artists relegated this season won't be permitted seeing as it seemed to be an unpopular decision.

    In basic terms, please choose your four bands, and check the following list to see if they are there. If they are, then they are not eligible to be voted for in this thread and you need to choose new ones.

    4)Your band is in another country's rock artist league. This can happen where a band has multiple nationalities. Please check the leagues of the other nationalities of the band to see if they are in those bands. For instance, Jimi Hendrix is already represented in the US league.


    If your chosen artists do not meet these criteria, I will endeavour to inform you of this by shoutbox message or personal message, but ultimately you should try to meet these criteria to save us both the hassle.


    I will endeavour to update the vote counts as time progresses, however I'm making no promises due to time restraints. The four bands receiving the most votes will qualify.

    The deadline for this vote is the end of June. So, the 30th of June at 23:59 BST. This is subject to change (change is most likely to be extention however).

    Please note that I do intend to, at some point, advertise this thread out across Last.fm to bring in new users. If you would like to get your favourite artists voted, perhaps you should bring in other users who like that artist to vote for them? ;)

    If I've missed anything out as it is nearly 1am, I shall edit this thread, and post what changes I made additionally as a new post in this thread.

    Please use this thread for voting purposes only, if you would like to discuss what is going on, please use the group's shoutbox.


    Thanks for reading, and enjoy voting!
