CONTEST – Emily Haines prize pack
While the Metric machine is slowly revving back up with work on their third album (or fourth, now that Grow Up And Blow Away has gotten a proper release) as well as a smattering of touring through the Summer and Fall, but frontwoman Emily Haines isn’t quite ready to give up the solo thing yet. In addition to a few more gigs around southern Ontario in the next few weeks, she’s releasing a companion EP to last year’s Knives Don’t Have Your Back.
What Is Free To A Good Home is being released on July 24 in conjunction with Secret Carnival Workers, a collection of poems from Emily’s father, poet Paul Haines. The timing of these releases also coincides with her show at Harbourfront Centre on the 25th, a double-header at London’s Aeolian Hall on the 27th and then an appearance at Hillside in Guelph on July 28.
Courtesy of Last Gang Records, I’ve got two prize packs to give away consisting of a copy of the EP and the book. The CD comes wrapped in shiny cellophane and the book is printed on some lovely textured paper stock. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want the Emily Haines stuff” in the subject line and your full mailing address in the body. This contest will run until midnight, July 23 so you’ll know beforehand if you need to swing by the record/book store to pick up a copy or not. If you preordered, then I can’t help you.
Contest now closed. Congrats to Brian and Chris on winning the prizes.
