“The album is dead” – every year it seems someone is saying this. The Cult’s Ian Astbury was at it not long ago.
At MAXIMUM VOLUME PR we say, with all due respect to Mr. Astbury and the rest, rubbish!
We still buy albums (and lots of them, thank you very much), you still buy albums, you have gone to the trouble of making one, shouldn’t people hear it?
And ask others if the album is dead – ask Ginger Wildheart, who since he started selling his albums direct to his fans, has never made so much money from record sales.
The fact of the matter is this: the record industry has changed over the last few years, and whether we like it or not, it’s not changing back.
So you have written an album you are proud of and want people to hear? You need to tell people about it, you need to market your music to them.
At MAXIMUM VOLUME PR we offer the most comprehensive album promotion package around. We will work with you for three months (usually a month prior to release and for two months after – but we can talk about this together) to create about a buzz about your record, and then tell everyone how good it is.
Work with you to create the perfect campaign
Write and distribute press releases to targeted publications, websites and radio stations
Help with social media campaigns for the record
Help you sell the album to your fanbase
Help you increase that fanbase
Offer advice and consultancy on how to sell the record

The days of selling millions might have gone, but that doesn’t mean that people shouldn’t hear – and buy – the music you create.
Let MAXIMUM VOLUME PR promote your new album today.
