Get Ready to Rock's Ten for Ten - Press release

Popular classic rock website and internet radio station Get Ready to ROCK! have announced the ten bands they’ll be backing this year as part of a “Ten for 10” promotion.

25 bands were shortlisted and 10 were selected, one of whom won a popular vote in January.

The selection is a mix of new and established artists and this very much reflects the Get Ready to ROCK! ethos developed online for the past 6 years.

Says Reviews Editor Jason Ritchie: “We’ve always supported new and independent artists and labels, and those established acts who we think deserve wider attention. “Ten for 10” will run throughout the year and highlight selected bands using online features, interviews, podcasts and radio.”

Among those selected are melodic rockers FM who had success in the 1980s and who have recently reformed to make a new album. GMT won the popular vote and features industry stalwart John McCoy who has played with everyone from Ian Gillan (Deep Purple) to Francis Rossi (Status Quo). The band also features Bernie Torme who in the 1980s briefly replaced Randy Rhoads, the guitarist in Ozzy Osbourne’s band.

Amongst the new bands are Panic Room, who have been receiving excellent reviews in the specialist press for their new album ‘Satellite (which is hotly touted as one of the progressive rock albums of the year), and singer songwriter Chris Singleton, who once toured tube stations in London to promote an album and is very active in the use of social media to promote himself.

Get Ready to ROCK! regularly attracts over quarter of a million unique users per month and has a dedicated radio channel to further help with artist promotion. This can be accessed via the main, or dedicated, website.

Managing Editor David Randall says, "If the Ten for 10 promotion helps raise selected artists’ profiles it is no bad thing. But all the bands who made our original shortlist are worthy of attention and of course we won’t stop promoting them if we can.”
