Who is Chart Attack?
We're a small team: Editor-in-Chief Richard Trapunski, Video Producer Ryan Parker, Staff Writer Chris Hampton, plus a humble army of freelancers.

I'm a writer / video producer / photographer / journalist / pundit / illustrator / etc., and I want to contribute!
Hit us up on our contact form or at contribute[at]chartattack[dot]com, and include any relevant samples of your work.

I have a fantastic news tip or story pitch that needs a home.

Great! Our Editor-in-Chief Richard Trapunski would love to hear it. Reach him at richard[at]chartattack.com.

I'm an artist/publicist. Where can I send music/press releases?
Press releases and music can be emailed to submissions[at]chartattack[dot]com. Online streams are best. We read everything but can't respond to each email due to the overwhelming volume.

Do you have a mailing list?
Yup! Sign up here.

How do you decide what artists to cover?
There's no concrete criteria, but generally we cover artists that are independent, non-mainstream, and/or musically innovative. When all else fails, we post what we like.

I noticed a spelling/grammar/factual mistake!
IMPOSSIBLE, but let us know in the comment section, on our contact form, or by emailing hello[at]chartattack[dot]com.

I just got an error: "The page you are finding seem doesn't exist." What gives?
We recently changed systems, and unfortunately it broke a lot of links. Chances are we can fix it, so let us know with our contact form or by emailing hello[at]chartattack[dot]com!

I'm looking at an older article and content is missing/the formatting is really weird/the author's name is wrong/missing. What's the deal?
See above!
