Contacting bands

I'm considering contacting a few bands that I saw at Pointfest in St. Louis the other weekend about the RBN, starting with Halestorm. However, I cannot, for the life of me, find their E-mail. Where do you normally find a band's e-mail. Sorry if this is a really stupid\ignorant question.

    Unfortunatly, it depends completly on the band. It might be at the bottom of the page, they might have a "contact" page.

    If you are on their homepage, try pressing ctrl+f and then typing the "@" symbol. It'll find any e-mails on that page (as "@" symbols are rare elsewhere).

    To find a band's e-mail address, you generally have to go to the band's website. In the case of Halestorm, I typed into Google "Halestorm band". I got their site, first result.

    Then I tried to find a contact page, because the vast majority of the time, that's where the relevant e-mail addresses are. You'll want to look for a link at the top and bottom first (i.e. the menus). On the Halestorm site, there is a "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page. And voila. Here are their contact details.

    If the band in question doesn't have an official website, they'll most likely have a MySpace.

    It's usually easier with smaller bands. Iron Maiden aren't going to have a personal e-mail at the bottom of their page, for example.

    A webmaster will be more than willing to redirect you, and you can always find their email on the website

    Well, that's a lie. Some bands may be too;

    A) Sociopathic
    B) Dead
    C) Liqudated
    D) Technically stupid

    To put their email on their website.

    Thanks for the advice. Can't believe I missed the glaringly obvious "Contact Us" link. Another question: would it be OK if I recommended a specific authoring group? Namely, Rockgamer studios. Also, Halestorm is signed to Atlantic. Is Atlantic one of those companies that has a tendency to be a**es about who they license out to?

    If a band is signed to a label nine times out of ten the label will have the rights to the masters. So even if the band says heck yes lets do this, if you don't get permission from the label, it's a moot point.

    Not trying to rain on your parade, just trying to save you some frustration.


    TL/DR version - contact the labels instead of the bands if they are signed.

    UNLESS! UNLESS!!! It's the artists label (a "vanity label") or just a straight-up made up non-label... which I've totally come across before.
