    2014 Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands Launches - Find out how to enter

    Ernie Ball's Battle of the Bands is officially open and accepting submissions at battleofthebands.com for 2014.

    The competition offers emerging bands the chance to perform at one of two major festivals featuring the biggest names in rock music: Monster Energy's Welcome to Rockville or Rock on the Range.

    The winning band for each competition will receive an all-expenses paid trip to perform at the respective festival, an Ernie Ball endorsement and over $15,000 in prize gear.

    That's some sweet booty. So, yeah, you really should be entering, like now.

    For over 17 years, the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands has grown to become one of the most successful live music promotions of its kind, with over 25,000 bands entering every year, offering a platform for emerging musicians to cultivate their craft, create networks and establish a community. They are at it again in 2014.

    "We're on the hunt for some killer undiscovered bands, and look forward to hearing some great music!" said Brian Ball, Vice President of Ernie Ball Inc.

    Aspiring bands, did you enter? Will you? Quit wasting time.
