We started talking to MCA back in 1997, but we did not sign with them until 1998. It all came about as a result of 9 years of hard work and sacrifice. 9 years of paying our dues. It did not come easy for us. I guess we took the long route.
The only way to get your music out there if you are not signed, is to promote the shit out of your band like there is no tomorrow. Play out as much as you can. Try to start building a fan base. Get a fan mailing list going and let them know everytime you are playing or anything that the band is up to. Call them up personally if you have to. Also try to get your music played on college radio. At least this is how we did it. College Radio is immensely helpful to any unsigned or signed band. A lot of our accomplishments were as a result of college radio stations around the U.S. such as Jersey's WSOU. I have tremendous respect for them.
