Chris Maric of Maric Media has been supporting Australian and International bands with promotion, publicity and artist relations for close to two decades. Chris has directly helped LORD with many of our previous album campaigns and is one of the most sort after publicity gurus in the country.
I’ve been wanting to catch up with Chris for quite some time to chat shop, however the main focus on this occasion was to chat about his upcoming charity bike ride, Heavy Metal Truants. Created by Rod Smallwood of Iron Maiden and Alexander Milas (ex-Metal Hammer), the ride begins in London and riders travel 275km ending their trip at the world famous Download Festival.
Heavy Metal Truants raises money for three charities that support the lives of young children, Nordoff Robbins, Teenage Cancer Trust, and Childline. Chris and Carl from Heavy Magazine are in the process of raising £2,600.00 and I want to help them reach their goal!
In addition to the charity ride, Chris and I chat metal (of course!), Maric Media, Australian tourists, Sydney music scene and much more. We crammed a bit in!
Please reach out to Chris and be sure to follow him and Carl on their ride in June.
