Say hello

If you would like to get in touch with Counteract, please contact us via one of the relevant email addresses listed below.

Please don’t be offended if we don’t get back to you! We’re a small team of volunteers and due to the volume of emails we receive, it’s not possible to respond to every one. If your request is relevant and we have time, we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible.

Please note:

Unfortunately we do not offer work experience or placements as we are a team of contributors who all work remotely.

As we are regional press based in Birmingham, we only cover artists and events which are relevant to the West Midlands. Please do not send us anything that isn’t relevant to the region (i.e. bands from Manchester) as we will not be able to reply.

To submit music for review, please email links to tracks along with a release date, hi-res press photo and a short band bio including website & social links to [email protected].

Again, please note that if the music is not relevant to the West Midlands we will not be able to cover it.
