The Hunt Continues For Fresh Tracks

Are you an unsigned artist or band waiting for your track to take off? Then you're in luck with Launch Your Band. Perisher and PlayStation have turned up the speakers and are shouting for entries from unsigned bands, electronic groups, DJs and solo acts who want the chance to have their music heard across the nation.

The quality of tracks have reached a new height this year and having hit the 120 mark, the bar is set high but the team at Perisher and PlayStation ask, if you've got what it takes... bring it on. The winning song will be used as the soundtrack for the 2011 Perisher Freeride TV commercials running throughout the upcoming snow season. As well as having their track featured as the soundtrack for the Perisher 2011 Freeride TV commercial, this year's winner will also have the chance to perform at the Perisher Spring Carnival in September, receive a Perisher snow holiday for up to six people, a Nikon camera and PlayStation 3 Move prize packs.

Think you've got what it takes? Carve up your track, record it and head to to submit your entry into the competition. If you're after some inspiration, check out the television advertisements featuring tracks from previous Launch Your Band winners. We can't all be musically gifted can we? So Perisher are also giving the non‐musically gifted a chance at a snow holiday simply by picking their favourite song from the jukebox and explaining why it would best suit as the soundtrack for Perisher's combination of originality, composition and relevance to Perisher's Freeride imagery.

Entry is free, and you've got until the 24th April 2011 to be heard. Your submission will be judged according to originality, composition and relevance to Perisher's Freeride style. For all competition terms and conditions, head to the website.
