Enter the Competition here:
Xtra Mile Recordings is pleased to announce that its repackaged Single Sessions Vinyl Box Set will now be available in independent record shops across the country on Record Store Day 2014 (19 April).
Featuring nine tracks from eight acts on four coloured 7” vinyl, the box set represents the broad scope of musical accomplishment within the Xtra Mile family of artists. It includes songs by Chris T-T & the Hoodrats, To Kill A King, Beans On Toast, Larry and His Flask, Jim Lockey & the Solemn Sun, Crazy Arm, Jamie Lenman and an exclusive demo by the mysterious Möngöl Hörde.
The box set, originally released as individual 7”s over four weeks in October last year, marks the label’s tenth year of operation and is a sequel of sorts to the original vinyl Single Sessions which featured former roster members like Dartz! and Reuben, as well as boasting Frank Turner’s first ever official release.
In celebration of releasing the set into the wild, Xtra Mile Recordings has unleashed an incredible competition to win two tickets to as many gigs headlined by an Xtra Mile act as possible, anywhere in the world, for a year! That means entry will be guaranteed any time Frank Turner, Against Me!, To Kill A King, Jamie Lenman, Ben Marwood, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Cheap Girls, Beans On Toast and plenty of others, play a headline show. And it doesn’t matter where – New York, Berlin, Sydney, Tokyo, even Ulaan Baatar – as long as the winner can get there, they can see the artist play for free.
After purchasing the box set from an independent record shop on or after Record Store Day, the entrant just needs to snap themselves modelling the set and send it to Xtra Mile along with 50 words on why they deserve this amazing prize. The winner will receive entry for them and a companion to all Xtra Mile headline gigs worldwide, and will be eager to write about and photograph their year long journey through live music. Rules and terms & conditions are here (LINK). Fans who have already purchased the four records are eligible to enter.
