The Music Industry Club (MIC) presents Battle of the New Bands -- a month and a half process, where strangers and friends alike come together to form an entirely new band. They have to find a manager, who will handle their social media and online presence, as well as making a functional electronic press kit.
Band members are responsible for writing, mixing and mastering a short EP, consisting of two original songs and a cover, while their manager gets the word out about their artist. This event was made to give students a glimpse into what working in the Music Industry would be like. Three finalists will be announced and will battle it out at the finals to see who will be Fredonia's latest and greatest Battle of the New Bands champion!
The winning band is selected at the Battle of the New Bands concert through combination of popular vote, judge votes (field professionals, Fredonia faculty, past battle winners), and manager performance. The victorious band and manager receive prizes determined by the Executive Board.
