There are only hours left to vote in Round Three of our Choose the Cover Contest! Voting for this round closes May 13th at 11:59 p.m., and that’s when the four bands vying for the cover of Rolling Stone – as well as an Atlantic Records contract – will be narrowed down to just two. Those finalists will then compete in an epic battle of the bands at the Bonnaroo festival in June. The winner of the battle at Bonnaroo will be announced on August 2nd on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, where they will make their network television debut.
You can get to know all of the bands by downloading new songs they recorded with big-name producers and watching videos in which they open up about what inspires them to make music and confront the ways that winning the contest could change their lives forever. The bands also came to New York City to perform at Rolling Stone‘s studio and meet with a panel of mentors featuring former Fall Out Boy singer Patrick Stump, Atlantic Records A&R director Mollie Moore and Rolling Stone editors Touré and Christian Hoard.
Once you’re up to speed on the contenders, can then vote for your favorite.
