Music Choice, the award-winning, multi-platform video and music network, announces the launch of "Rocktober," a month-long programming & marketing campaign dedicated to rock's hottest established and emerging artists. The long list of featured artists and bands includes SLIPKNOT and UNEARTH. Music Choice will offer originals, video premieres, video playlists, and a selection of classic videos and DVD clips throughout the month of October to watch on its free On Demand network and its free online music service.
The "Rocktober" video programming on Music Choice will feature SLIPKNOT on "BIG!", the music network's new original series featuring the life and work of artists who are the "Best In the Game." Millions of Music Choice viewers will get an exclusive opportunity to go backstage with the masked men of SLIPKNOT as they transform into metal maniacs. Music Choice will also be featuring a four-part "Rock U" original series, with a new episode launching every week during the month of October. The series will dissect the anatomy of a rock band.
"Music Choice is very excited about this year's 'Rocktober' campaign," says Justin Prager, Director of Rock and Pop Programming for Music Choice. "The lineup of featured artists is by far our strongest to date! From SLIPKNOT to THE ALL AMERICAN REJECTS to THREE DAYS GRACE, we have all bases covered no matter what style of rock you prefer. Between SLIPKNOT's 'BIG!' piece and the 'Anatomy of a Rock Band' four-part series, this is Music Choice's proudest moment yet for original rock music content."
