FAQ

Can we send you demos?

Yes, go ahead.

Will you listen to it?

Yes, we listen to every demo that we receive. So nothing will remain unlistened, although we don´t listen to everything completely. In case we think it´s too crappy or it absolutely isn´t our style of music, we might just do a quick listening session.

Will you wirte back after receiving our demo?

No, unless we like your music and your appearance so much that we would take a cooperation with you into consideration. Sorry, but we can´t spend that much time on writing everybody back who sent something in, but it´s always worth a try.

Where do I send demos?

Send it to:
Ass-Card Records
Meissenerstr. 48
44139 Dortmund
Germany

We accept demos in the following formats: CD, Tape or Vinyl.
Please no MP3’s or big files by email or links since we don’t have the time and the patience to download.

We’re an indie-rock-emo band

To quote Dillinger Four: “Very seldom is it ‘indie’, and very rarely does it rock.” Don’t send it.

Can I work for ass-card records or do an internship?

No, sorry as we are a tiny army which is doing everything due to the fact of commitment, we don´t have any free jobs, which would pay off for you.

Can I help you in any form like spreading flyers, stickers, running your link on my page, publishing news about your bands, or anything else?

Yes, go ahead, as we all still see this as a part of a community who works together and helps each other out, we appreciate any form of network cooperation with people from all over the world. No matter the color, the age, the race, the nationality, sexual preference or any other stupid categorization. Fuck your bigotry. As long as you are cool with us, we are cool with you!

Do you trade records?

Yes, we do.

Do you want to trade with me?

Yes, we do, but please contact us upfront in order to make sure that we are currently trading. Sometimes we stop trading for a while, whenever we have too much on stock and need to get rid of some stuff before we continue trading. And please accept that we can´t trade endless amounts with everybody and don´t be dissappointed if we refuse some of your stuff.

I am publishing a zine, can you send me some promostuff for reviewing it?

Maybe, please contact us about that via email at info[at]asscardrecords.com and send us a sample of your zine. If we think your zine is cool enough for our supercool releases, we will send you our latest stuff. But please understand that our source of promo records is limited and that we can´t send out hundreds of free records and cds.

I am running an e-zine, can I get some promostuff for reviewing it?

As there are thousands of “e-zines” out there, and as there are also tons of them who only last for some weeks or even days we can´t afford to send free stuff to all of them, but basically the same as for fanzines, try to contact us.

No, we are a record label not a booking agency, please keep that in mind!

Yes, no problem, order it via our shop on our page or contact us via email about it.
