Ask Tooth & Nail: Are You Guys Accepting Demos?

Howdy ho neighbors! Happy Friday!

Today’s question was submitted via email by mike lewis, who asked:

Are you guys accepting demos?

Our answer:

Yes, we are always accepting demos! I think the best way for you to submit music to us is to send it in the mail to:

Tooth & Nail Records
P.O. Box 12698
Seattle, WA 98111

Though I should probably let you know that our bar is set pretty high. In the past we have been delivered demos in the guise of stuffed animals, stereos, an assortment of candy and food items and even an actual toilet.

Coincidentally, in one of the most interesting demo submissions of all time, the toilet was sent to us years ago by a band we just welcomed to the Solid State Family this week, Williamsport, Pennsylvania’s My Heart To Fear.

There was basically no way we could avoid listening to the music. Because there was no easy way to get rid of it, that “porcelain throne” sat in our office for weeks, and I don’t think any of us ever forgot about the day we received it. And though the band may have had to wait awhile to see the return on their creative investment, they ultimately achieved their goal: a record deal.

Not too shabby, I’d say.
