As New York duo The Golden Filter prepares for the US release of their debut album, Voluspa, on June 15, the group has come up with a "stellar" way to give back to their fans...
The Golden Filter are giving away stars--yep, gaseous, fiery, faraway stars--with randomly selected copies of their CDs. When you pre-order a physical CD or Vinyl through the bands website, you get an instant download of the digital version, including two bonus tracks and two exclusive video's. Plus, a lucky twenty fans will get a celestial being in addition to the album -- one purchased and renamed star, to be specific, along with a one-of-a-kind Polaroid taken by the duo.
You can listen to the band's debut in full over at their website.
The Golden Filter will be performing a one-off show at the Mercury Lounge in New York City on Friday, May 14 with support from The Hundred In The Hands, before preparing for a national tour in June in support of Voluspa.
The band's latest single "Hide Me" is out this week. The single comes with a Peter Bjorn & John's Hortlax Cobra Remix (returning the favor for TGF's remix of "Lay It Down,") a Clock Opera Remix and the band's own "Nine Worlds" remix, all available over at iTunes.
