Bush Giving Away Concert Tickets, Mastodon Jumping On Board For Record Store Day — Angel’s Rock Report
Bush kick off their tour with Nickelback, Seether and My Darkest Days tonight in Moline, Illinois, and they've launched a ticket giveaway contest called 60 Shows, 60 Days, 60 Pairs of Tickets. At 10 a.m. Mountain Time each morning for the next 60 days, frontman Gavin Rossdale will announce a particular date, city and show on his Twitter account, @GavinRossdale. You can then win a ticket to that show by logging onto Bush.PromoJam.com/Bush60tix and re-Tweeting the message using the hashtag #Bush60tix. Gavin will Tweet the name of the winner each day at 4pm.
A new Bush song, "Into the Blue," will appear on the upcoming soundtrack Avengers Assemble: Music From and Inspired by the Motion Picture, which hits stores May 1st.
Mastodon have announced that they'll be part of a special split-single release for Record Store Day. On what's being billed as Feistodon, they cover Canadian songstress Feist's "A Commotion" on one side, and she does their song "Black Tongue" on the other side.
Mastodon reportedly met Feist when they both appeared on the British TV show Later With Jools Holland, and they hatched the plan there. Record Store Day is April 21st.
