ABOUT BLACKEST RAINBOW
Blackest Rainbow began back in 2005 as a small record distro at shows in Nottingham, UK. Late 2006 saw the opening of a very short lived store in Sheffield, UK. During this time the Blackest Rainbow label began. And here were are today.
Depending on how busy we are depends whether we are accepting demos. If you are interested in sending us something just email at the below address, and you can find out whether we are in a situtation to be accepting demos. Please note, if you we do accept a demo, please don't hassle us about it, if we're into it we'll be in touch. We DO NOT accept download links for demos.
We do operate a mailing list, although we are pretty un-technically minded, so if you would like to be added please just drop us an email to the above address and we will add you.
We recently started a bandcamp page where several titles are available to order. Some titles are not yet up on Bandcamp, but in time we hope to get more releases up there. To order any releases that are not on Bandcamp please read the section below. Check out Bandcamp HERE, you can stream releases too!
