Here at LTW we love discovering new bands and hearing music from local scenes around the world. We want to hear more of it and we want to share it with our readers.

International contributors

So, we’re looking for new contributors – writers and photographers – who can introduce us to the best of their local scene, wherever that might be in the world.

We’re particularly keen to hear from writers and photographers in Australia and New Zealand as we know there’s great things happening on scenes in that part of the world that we’re not hearing about enough.

Wherever you are  – if you think your local scene needs sharing let us know. You might want to take a look at Our Manifesto to understand the ethos behind Louder Than War.

We’re all volunteers here – no-one gets paid but there’s plenty of satisfaction in other ways. Louder Than War is a group of people passionate about music giving their time to share and spread it to our growing community of music fans.

If you’d like to write or photograph for us contact Features Editor Sarah Lay with your ideas, links to your writing or photography and why you want to contribute to LTW – email

International artists

And if you’re a band or artist who wants to put your music forward for review get in touch with us through the usual way – as explained on our contact page.

We aren’t able to cover everything we get sent but we do try and listen to it all.

  1. re: looking for writers.

    I write about music local to my area (Swindon) for the local paper and on a national level for various PR companies. here is a link to a piece I wrote for an album launch this week – httpss://, though anything on that site without a by-line is my work. I have always read and respected Louder Than War’s dedication to music that keeps the energy and raw attitude of music alive. I also write book and film reviews on a variety of sites such as – httpss://

    I would love the chance to contribute to your site,
