To celebrate the release of Sick Puppies‘ new album, entitled Connect, we have a super cool opportunity for our readers. One lucky follower will get the chance to win an Epiphone Les Paul Special 2 guitar — and not only that, but it will be signed by Sick Puppies as a special thank you for checking out and supporting their music! You can download the full album on iTunes (click here) and don’t forget to check out the music video to “There’s no going back.”
In case you’re not familiar with Sick Puppies, here’s a bit more about them, according to their official bio: With a name like Sick Puppies, you wouldn’t think hugs would play a major role in the gutsy indie crew’s rise to fame, but they do, along with malls and YouTube. When they met in 1997, singer/lead guitarist Shimon Moore and bassist Emma Anzai were both fans of Silverchair and the Living End plus many of the other angst rock/punk rock bands from their native Australia.
Soon Chris Mileski joined on drums and a series of live gigs led to some local recognition and the 1999 EP Dog’s Breakfast. Two years later, their song “Nothing Really Matters” won the Unearthed competition, which Australia’s Triple J radio network held to find homegrown and undiscovered talent.
