How many of you guys are familiar with RoadRunner Records promotional website Signmeto? Well it won’t be around much longer, as of October 1st, the site will be no mas. Since there has been no official statement from the label, it is leading some to speculate why the page is being shut down. Maybe it’s because the page’s interface was garbage, but more than likely it’s because Roadrunner hasn’t been relevant to the underground community since the 90’s.
Just in case you weren’t familiar with this site, it was basically Roadrunner’s version of Myspace. It was particularly ran as an interactive way for band to submit their demo’s to the label. I’m not exactly sure if anyone ever got signed, but the fact that I’m not sure shows how good of a job RR does with promotion.
Signmeto didn’t last long, and with the recent troubles in the Roadrunner camp, I bet the label will soon be a thing of the past too.
