The first two episodes of the new reality music competition show No Cover have premiered online.

No Cover, which was first announced in 2020, finds a panel of judges — including Alice Cooper, Bush‘s Gavin Rossdale and Halestorm‘s Lzzy Hale — searching to discover the next best unsigned bands.

Each week, the competing artists perform for the judges live at the iconic Troubadour club near Los Angeles. Kellin Quinn of Sleeping with Sirens co-hosts the show. The other judges are alt-pop singer/songwriter Bishop Briggs and prog-metal guitarist Tosin Abasi.

As opposed to shows like American Idol or The Voice, the No Cover contestants only perform original material, hence the show’s title.

The winner of No Cover will earn a recording contract with Sumerian Records, and a slot at a festival produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, the company behind the Aftershock, Welcome to Rockville and Louder than Life festivals. The victorious act also will get signed to a management and booking agency, and will receive a whole lot of gear.

You can watch the first two No Cover episodes streaming now via the Sumerian Records YouTube channel.
