Pennywise Release New Record For Free
Tue, 25 Mar 2008 11:27:36
In a move that's somewhat surprising given their "Fight to Die" stance on Corporate America, Pennywise has signed a deal with MySpace Records to distribute their new disc, Reason to Believe, through the site for the next two weeks beginning today, March 25.
"It's a brave new world in the music industry," Pennywise frontman Jim Lindberg told the LA Times. "I'm not really the person that downloads and listens on portable devices … but a lot of people do, and this approach we're doing will really connect with a lot of new people."
MySpace's Pennywise partnership is the first time the networking site has given away an entire high-profile album for free.
