The first two episodes of the new reality music competition show No Cover have premiered online.
No Cover, which was first announced in 2020, finds a panel of judges — Bush‘s Gavin Rossdale, Alice Cooper, Halestorm‘s Lzzy Hale, Bishop Briggs and prog-metal guitarist Tosin Abasi — searching to discover the next best unsigned bands.
Each week, the competing artists perform for the judges live at the iconic Troubadour club in Los Angeles. Kellin Quinn of Sleeping with Sirens co-hosts the show.
As opposed to shows like American Idol or The Voice, the contestants only perform original material, hence the title No Cover.
The winner of No Cover will earn a recording contract with Sumerian Records, and a slot at a festival produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, the company behind Aftershock, Welcome to Rockville and Louder than Life. They’ll also get signed to a management and booking agency, and will receive a whole lot of gear.
You can watch the first two No Cover episodes streaming now via the Sumerian Records YouTube channel.
