Welcome, Giro!



As avid cyclists, snowboarders and skiers (and parents of little ones involved in these activities), we understand the importance of protecting oneself, particularly one's brain! So we're thrilled to launch an opportunity today for Giro, one of the world's largest manufacturers of helmets and other protective accessories for cycling and winter sports. We'll be assisting their crew in sourcing and licensing songs for use in promotional videos like this one featuring BForB artist JEFF The Brotherhood. Welcome aboard, Team Giro!

"Dayumm" snowboarding film



We're very excited to be working with accomplished action sports filmmaker and videographer Joe Carlino on his upcoming short film "Dayumm", which chronicles the travels and unbelievable shredding of two of snowboarding's brightest lights: Olympic gold medalist Sage Kotsenburg and X-Games gold medalist Halldor Helgason. We worked with Joe previously to source tracks for "The Other Side", his 6-episode profile of Sage that features a variety of tracks from BrandsForBands (like "It's Been So Long" by These Machine Are Winning, featured in the trailer above). We can't wait to see what he comes up with this time.

Set loose...on a Mongoose



We have many vivid and awesome memories of being 10 years old, tear-assing around the neighborhood on our Mongoose bikes. So it's with much excitement that we announce today's launch of a Mongoose opportunity in BrandsForBands. Their editors are looking to us to help out with music for promotional videos, and we're only too happy to oblige (and our 10 year old selves are pretty stoked, too). Funny how things come full circle. Welcome, Team Mongoose!

Quiksilver & Roxy - New and Improved!





We have a real soft spot for Quiksilver and Roxy. Not just because they're two of our oldest and dearest clients, or because of their huge contribution to defining today's action sports landscape. We love 'em because they really value music and the artists who work so hard to create it (like UK prog-rockers Einstellung and MPLS-based Weird Visions, featured in the videos above). Today we're launching a new, combined Quiksilver and Roxy opportunity, one that features a lengthy schedule of rights options, each one of which is another opportunity for a great artist to get paid while having their music promoted to Quik and/or Roxy's huge, music-loving global audiences. So to Quik and Roxy we say: we've come a long way, baby, and here's to going a lot farther.

Welcome, Otterbox & Lifeproof!

Anyone who's ever dropped their phone or tablet and picked up a shattered mess knows the importance of cases. And nobody knows cases - or sells quite as many of them - as Otterbox and its subsidiary Lifeproof. The former is the world's #1 seller of phone and tablet cases, while the latter specializes in cases for, shall we say, more aggro lifestyles. Both are looking to BForB for awesome tuneage for their promotional videos, and we're thrilled to help 'em out. Welcome aboard, teams Otterbox and Lifeproof!
