Release PR

At HOTP, we love a new music release! There is nothing like getting to listen to new music for the first time and being asked to share that new creation with the world. We provide a range of release publicity options, from digital single campaigns, EP releases and a range of album release packages. Our campaigns focus on showcasing your material to media and telling your story. Our album release packages can be both a digital and hard copy element, and a detailed brief on your album. Our EP release packages are available in digital only or both digital and hard copy and is a great way to introduce your material to media. Our digital single campaigns are focused specifically around the song and have a national focus across media around the country.

Tour PR

At HOTP, we have been working tours across the width and breadth of Australia for almost two decades. We love every kind of tour, from a small solo acoustic run, to a band’s major metro and regional dates as well as major touring festivals. There isn’t a town we haven’t seen a tour travel through, or likely travelled through ourselves as part of a tour over the years. We get excited for all metro tour dates, love regional tours and work on everything from one tour date to 40. Our campaigns provide a tour specific press release and we target every town you travel to.
