Since our new album Collapser comes out on September 1st, we thought it would be cool to run a contest in which one lucky winner will win a free copy and some other stuff. Our accountant told us this was a terrible idea, but we said “We’re not paying you to be a buzzkill, man.”
So here’s the contest: you tell us in exactly six words — no more, no less — why you should win the contest. If we pick your entry, you win! There’s no real criteria beyond the word length; we might pick one because it’s funny, or well-written, or because it makes the most compelling case.
To participate, just add a comment to this blog with your entry. If you win, we’ll shoot you a message to get your address and stuff. If you’re a a total dork and don’t have a Myspace account, you can instead email us with “Contest” as the subject line.
If you win, you get the following goodies:
Collapser – CD or colored vinyl, your choice
Resignation Day – CD or colored vinyl, your choice
You Idiot (my book)
A t-shirt of your choice. You can look on the myspace page and pick your design and size, but this is the one item where we might have to make you pick an alternate if we’re out of a particular combo.
Now, don’t be a jerk and say something like “So I can forget my leprosy” unless you actually have leprosy.
Alright! Tell us in six words, no more no less, why you should win this contest. Contest ends Sunday August 30th.
