Super Metal World

Most bands spend their time writing new music, touring, and recording, they’re artists after all, while placing less focus on promoting and marketing themselves. The crux of the problem is that you must get your name out there if you want to get more shows and have more success at the merch booth. That’s where Dropout Media comes in. Dropout Media Dropout Media is the “premiere provider of DIY music marketing services for heavy metal, hard rock, and alternative artists and labels since 2014.” With their focus on DIY, Dropout Media fits right in with Super Metal World. Matt Bacon is a journalist and the founder of Dropout Media. He start his trek through the metal landscape at the age of 14, offering album reviews to small bands on internet forums. That early work set the stage for work at publications like Metal Injection. Matt’s experience in the space continued to grow as he ended up managing an band’s European tour. Now Matt spends his time on Dropout Media helping bands more attractive to the masses. This includes things like improving social media presence, tour planning, album releases, and press kit creation. Find Matt and Dropout Media on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube.
