The Dirt Drifters give Blood
Tuesday, August 9, 2011
– The Dirt Drifters are giving away their "Blood," or at least 30,000 copies of their debut album "This Is My Blood."
Beginning today, The Drifters will be armed at all tour dates with exclusive physical copies. Fans will receive two copies of the CD together and separated by a perforated fold for easy tearing to encourage fans to spread the music.
The Dirt Drifters are recruiting their fans to get blood and give blood by keeping one disc for themselves and passing along the second album to a friend. Produced by Justin Niebank, the album features their brand new single Always A Reason and debut single Something Better and is now available digitally.
For us it is all about the music and we want to get it out there, says lead singer and guitarist Matt Fleener.
We are not asking for anything in return. If you like what you hear, then tear it and pass it along.
Vocalist and guitarist Ryan Fleener adds, We are so excited for this opportunity and have to give a huge shout out to our label president, John Esposito, for making our dream of sharing our music a reality.
The band will be kicking off the Always A Reason headlining tour this September. The Dirt Drifters are lead singer/guitarist Matt Fleener, vocalist/guitarist Ryan Fleener, vocalist/guitarist Jeff Middleton, bassist Jeremy Little and drummer Nick Diamond.
