Victory Records, Inc., the top independent rock label in the United States, announces the use of Album Trailers as a new promotional medium.
Album Trailers are a new way to launch an album. Is it a website? Is it a commercial? Does it make me curious? Can it be shared? Is it viral? Is it interactive? Is it fun? Is it engaging? Does it have information? Is there something in it for Ã¢â‚¬Ëœme’? Am I entertained by it? The answer to all of these is questions is a resounding- yes.
Our entire world has become more communal and interactive. We are all increasingly intertwined by various forms of technology.
