FREE SONIC BOOM SIX MUSIC FOR ALL! What's The Catch?! And Another Competition...

Hey you guys!

First things first, welcome to all the new members of the mailing list we've had over the last few weeks! Having a few competitions has really brought you guys in... good to have you aboard. Secondly, thanks to everyone who came to the show on Thursday night in Manchester. We played a lot of new material and everyone seemed to be suitably digging it and we were stoked with the response. Thank you to all at Sound Control especially Ben Taylor as well as Tonn Piper and James Kennedy. And big up to Raich Hype Photography for this keeper...

Right, onto the free stuff! Over the past week or so there has been a lot of debate raging about the SOPA issue (the US government's initiative to use the law to stamp out internet activity they deem unsuitable) not least on my Twitter. Whereas this forum probably isn't the place to get down and dirty with my opinions on the matter, let's just say that my viewpoint of it was a little less anti-SOPA than a lot of people might have expected. While I was brought round in terms of the greater issue after listening to you guys, I still feel that internet file-sharing is ultimately damaging TV, films and music. A few people took that to mean I was completely against copying and sharing music and pointed out that without copied music they would have never discovered Sonic Boom Six. Then, they argued, we've come to gigs and seen you and bought your t-shirts and all is well with the world. I agreed this was a good point!

So, in an effort not to be considered the Lars Ulrich of the UK rock scene, I'm going to put my money where my mouth is and give away our awesome acoustic Babyboom EP to every subscriber to this mailing list. The link to join the mailing list is HERE! Hope you guys enjoy the record as much as we enjoyed making it (in a barn, but that's another story).

So, where's the catch!? Well, there is none, but all I'm going to do is draw upon the words that have been bouncing at me after I grumbled about all the piracy of Sonic Boom Six records that goes on on sites like Megaupload. People have been saying that getting free music makes you more likely to come to a gig so now seems as good a time as any to point out that we have a few gigs lined up in the near future if you hadn't noticed... :)

This brings us to the London Show on February 9th. After all your support (thank you!) at the last London show we've now got a few very interested parties talking with us about new record and this is going to be the show that is really going to be the exclamation point in making it happen. We hate having to ask you guys to go that extra mile for us (as you did at the last show) but a full room of you guys going mental will make all the difference. If you can come, please do, a sell-out in advance will look great for us. If the Babyboom EP sounds good and it gets across how important these dates and this show is then hopefully you'll consider coming to the gig. We truly appreciate it. What's more, support is coming from the awesome Hildamay and Wonder Villians so this is a must-attend event. Get your tickets HERE ladies and gentlemen!

But that's not all. Right now it's worth noting now that the show in Leeds has been moved up to the Cockpit 2 so thank you guys, let's keep those ticket purchases coming! And, straight from the Facebook of Jagermeister with another awesome competition... "Want to see Sonic Boom Six with VIP tickets?
