UK indie band The Crimea to give away album online
British indie band The Crimea is to give away its new album “Secrets of the Witching Hour” for free online, in an attempt to build a fan base.
Although plenty of unsigned bands give away their music in this way, The Crimea are possibly the biggest band to go down this route.
Stephen Taverner, The Crimea’s manager, said, “They are hoping that because it’s free it will open the band to a wider audience and make more money from live income. The other thing that’s important is that all of this is irrelevant if the music isn’t any good.”
