KATATONIA KICK OFF U.S. TOUR! STREAM “IDLE BLOOD!” WIN AN AUTOGRAPHED MAYONES GUITAR! AHHHHHH!!!
Katatonia’s MetalSucks-sponsored “New Night Over North America 2010” tour kicks off today! Featuring support from the always-excellent Swallow the Sun and Orphaned Land, the Swedish metal legends’ latest trek is guaranteed to be a killer time. And to celebrate, MetalSucks is teaming up with Peaceville Records and Omerch to give away a Mayones guitar played and signed by played and autographed by Katatonia during the tour! How awesome is that?
Here’s how it’s gonna work:
- In the comments section below, answer the following question: “If you had one day with Katatonia vocalist Jonas Renkse, how would you spend it?”
- One grand-prize winner will receive the autographed guitar (pictured above… it obviously hasn’t been autographed yet), the tour edition of Katatonia’s Night is the New Day (out now on Peaceville), a Mayones Guitar t-shirt, plus his or her choice of a t-shirt from Katatonia’s merch store, powered by Omerch.
- One runner-up will receive the tour edition of Night is the New Day and a Kataonia t-shirt of his or her choice.
- Make sure you register for the comments with an actual e-mail address, as all winners will be contacted by e-mail. If you’re connecting through Facebook, you need to leave your e-mail address as part of your comment — we can’t contact you via a social network, sorry.
- This contest is open to U.S. residents only. Shipping a guitar ain’t cheap, y’know.
And that’s it! Best of luck to all our entrants.
Now, for your listening pleasure, here’s “Idle Blood,” from Night is the New Day…
