The Damnwells CD Giveaway – Winner

The winner of the Damnwells autographed CD giveaway has been chosen. I received so many amazing reponses as to how The Damnwells music has changed your life, but Hannah’s was the best.

“The Damnwells have changed my life because I never realized how much beauty could come out of heartbreak and how musically full the Damnwells are; perfect lyrics, catchy and gorgeous melodies. They are a rare band who receives only an ounce of the ton of praise they deserve.”

Congratulations to Hannah. I hope you enjoy, “No One Listens to the Band Anymore” as much I do.


The Damnwells CD Giveaway

Today is a very special day in music and one that fans of The Damnwells have been waiting quite some time for. “No One Listens to the Band Anymore” was released for the world to hear and personally, I couldn’t be happier with the entire record. The best thing about this record is that it couldn’t have been made without their fans. Money was raised on a great site called Pledge Music and with that a fantastic record was made. When I received the CD in the mail, a special note from the guys was included:

“Thank you! What you now possess is the musical manifestation of the incredible support and love you have shown this little band from Brooklyn, NY. The Damnwells has now become a part of your life as much as our music has been a part of yours. This record would literally not exist without your support. I wish there was a way to shake hands with or hug-depending on your preference-each and every one of you. Your support has ensured that we can continue to do what we love. It’s amazing. Your transformation from fan to patron is now complete. You are The Damnwells. Love, Alex and Ted”

I purchased this CD in hopes that it would land in the hands of someone who appreciates music, but also appreciates bands like The Damnwells, “a little band from Brooklyn, NY.”
