    Hello facepunch, haven't been here in a while.

    Anyway, My band has a new EP out on bandcamp, and we would appreciate it if you guys check it out, and give me some (constructive) criticism, I know my singing isn't the best, so you don't have to tell me that, other than the singing what did you like/not like about the song and why etc...

    well here it is: http://socialrevolution.bandcamp.com/album/anxiety-ep'

    take a listen, and give me some feedback

    I can dig this. The songs are enjoyable and the instruments really work. You should try doing something with your vocals like distorting them or something. I would also make the vocals a bit quieter. If i had 2 bucks to spare I'd buy this, so there's that.

    Thanks for the feedback, yes that's a good idea, but I tried that (distorting the vocals) and I couldn't get it to sound exactly how I wanted it to sound so I gave up on it. But I'm actually going into the studio soon, so at least I will have professional mixers and stuff there to do it for me, instead of me winging it at my home studio.

    A lot of my friends tell me that haha, and they all think I try to sound like him because thats my favorite band, but honestly that's just how I sing. Also he's a Tenor, and I'm a Baritone.

    EDIT: Does anyone have any suggestions for our band? Like how to get noticed by record companies and to get gigs.

    Well the way my band got our first gigs was i went to some local shows and found the guy who was putting them on and talked to him. You could also try posting ads and stuff. After you play some shows and have a small fan base going ask around some other local bands to see if anyone has a indie label or something.

    The vocals sound a little out of place in the mix, other than I think its good man. And when it comes to getting noticed just put your music out there and play shows, and for getting shows try contacting local bands near you that sound similar or if you're desperate try craigslist lol.

    Yeah I'm not good at mixing (and i'm not the best at singing either) well first I need a drummer haha. had one but apparently I'm not serious enough, even though I have spent more money and more time on this than I have on anything else in my life, but whatever. Anyway I've been using a drum machine but it sounds good to me.

    Record the vocals twice. Its called double tracking and it will beef up the sound. You could also experiment by putting small amounts of chorus or phaser on the vocals.
