Hi Team! 

For All Those Sleeping is co-headlining the Not Your American Idols Tour presented by MerchNOW this fall (October 1 - November 3) with Capture The Crown, Ice Nine Kills, Palisades, Myka Relocate and Youth In Revolt! This is going to be a great tour, especially since some of our artists from Outerloop Records are on the bill (Ice Nine Kills & Youth In Revolt). We’ll need your help to encourage new fans to come out to the show. Let’s help hype up that For All Those Sleeping are playing these shows. Please read though the details carefully and sign-up for a show in your area to get involved! Don’t forget if you’re selected to promote this tour, you’ll get FREE admission into the show! 

IMPORTANT: Only sign-up if you are 100% sure you make it to the show, can complete a pre-show and post-show report. Your pre-show report is due one week prior to the show and a post-show report due no later than one week after your show. Failure to submit reports by their respective times will result in not receiving a guest list spot (free admission) and/or restrictions in working shows in the future. Guest list spots are hard to come by and we need to make sure we are reserving them for teamers that deserve them!

Make sure to write the date and venue of your show on the flyers. If you need help finding a location to promote, let us know!

Street Mission Details

 

Scope: You will be sent 5 For All Those Sleeping - Incomplete Me posters to place around your city along with 30 stickers to pass out & ask fans to preview select tracks. The focus is to promote the new album, Incomplete Me, focus singles such as “Incomplete Me” and playing Warped Tour on the Monster Stage this summer. 

 

IMPORTANT: Please make sure you hang up your posters in high traffic areas, where music fans will be hanging around. Good examples are: FYE, Hot Topic, Guitar Center, HMV, Local Record Stores, Local Venues, Malls, Skateparks, Coffee Shops, Your School etc. The posters should be hung up at eye level, so that other fans can see them and read it easily. Also please make sure you ask permission before hanging the posters, that is very important. 

 

Phone Calls: You can also call locations before hand. Make sure you introduce yourself as a member of the Fearless Records Street Team and that you’re promoting a new release. Make sure your professional and polite! Ex: “Hi my name is (your name) and I’m a member of the Fearless Records Street Team. I’m currently promoting the release of For All Those Sleeping’s new album Incomplete Me locally. I would greatly appreciate it if I can get permission to hang a small album poster at your business.” Your message doesn’t have to be the exact same, but it will give you an idea how to start your conversation and establish a positive relationship with people in your area for future promoting. 

 

-Make sure to include some key information on the posters such as: focus tracks, tour dates in the area, where to purchase the album, etc.

 

-After you fill in the key information on the posters, take a close up photo of ALL 5 posters so we can read what you wrote on them. (1 picture)

 

-You will take 1 photo for each poster you hang up. The photo must be zoomed out so we can easily see the location and surrounding area where the poster is hung up showing it’s a high traffic location. This will give us an idea of the type of traffic the poster will be getting!(5 pictures)

 

-You will need to include a short write-up for each location you put posters up at. In the write-up, include your pictures (zoomed out) and some notes about the location letting us know why you picked that location.

 

-While you’re out promoting: pass out stickers to new potential fans, and leave some stickers at a record store etc. These will help get the word out because it’s something music fans can keep which has album information on the back so they can check out the music when they get home! (5 pictures)

 

-Go to a local competitive show, mall, record store, skatepark (while you’re out promoting/ hanging posters) and ask people to preview focus tracks like “Incomplete Me”. Let them know For All Those Sleeping is a great band and that their new album Incomplete Me is set to release on June 23rd! You can also talk to them about the band playing Warped Tour all summer long. (5 pictures) 

 

For a good example of how to hang up your posters and turn in your pictures, check out this report that one of our teamers turned in for a previous mission. Your report won’t have all of these same parts or look the exact same, however it gives you a good idea of what to do. To view the example report, click HERE

 

Total Pictures: 16 + short write-up

 

Please save all pictures, compile/ organize/ label them into a single word document (.doc/ .docx) or PDF and send them to officialFATSstreetteam@gmail.com by the deadline with the subject line “Incomplete Me Street Mission”. Let me know if you have any questions!

Happy Street Promoting!
