AC Promotions is a Radio, TV & Club Promotions and Event PR company which specialises in the rock genre.
We look after the promotion of a wide range of artists, from arena filling and festival headlining mainstream global rock artists: Guns n' Roses, Alter Bridge, Black Stone Cherry, Led Zeppelin, Billy Idol, Nickelback, Slash and Slipknot, through to some of the most respected and genre defining rock and metal artists, including Gojira, Code Orange, A Perfect Circle, Turnstile and Kvelertak. We provide a full club promotion service to the UK's 70+ rock clubs and offer event PR, including Bloodstock Open Air Festival.
We have great relationships across all UK Radio & TV, including BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, Radio X, Absolute Radio, Kerrang Radio, Planet Rock, Primordial Radio, Total Rock, Virgin Radio, MTV UK & International, Box TV, BBC TV’s Later With Jools Holland, Graham Norton, Jonathan Ross, among many more, all the major news networks as well as events companies, brand partners and the UK’s leading festivals and live music sector.
There were just four metal albums to land the #1 spot on the main UK album charts in the last decade, and we lead the charge at radio and TV for two of them - Avenged Sevenfold's Hail to the King in 2013 and Slipknot's We Are Not Your Kind in 2019, and most recently landing another #1 with Slipknot (their second consecutive UK #1) with The End, So Far. Whilst the company's roster is predominantly rock, it is certainly not limited to this and also includes mainstream pop and blues artists – of which have had much mainstream success.
