“Ends of the Earth” now on iTunes

July 7th 2010 10:55 pm

It’s 3 am and the summer heat is holding you from everything that is slumber. Insomnia’s on the verge of setting in. Age old remedies are ineffective.
Bubblespinner leads to facebook (in which you just “like”d the fanpage ) and finally you find yourself spending $9.99 at a time at the iTunes store. Right before you buy Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers’ new release and right after you downloaded The Drive-By Truckers you find yourself previewing the tracks from “Ends of the Earth” and before long they are permanently settled as a fixation in your digital world.

Thanks – I appreciate it.

To celebrate the release of “Ends of the Earth” we are giving it away to one lucky fan along with autographed CD’s, and band t-shirts….oh and it doesn’t stop there….maybe there’s a famous duo playing the Saddledome in Calgary, AB soon, maybe a guy with long blonde hair and his Heartbreakers are on tour, well we love music and we love you – if we’re starting by giving away an iPod, why stop there? Concert tickets and other cool gadgets to be given away in the future.
