FREAKWATER.NET 2018 POSTER GIVEAWAY
Each month for the rest of the year, freakwater.net will be giving away rare and collectible Freakwater posters. Check in the first week of every month to see the poster being given away and how to win it. Good luck!
Here's the giveaway for June. . . a HUGE 42" X 29" tour poster on heavy-ass card stock, printed by yeehawindustries.com. This poster will be given free-of-charge (shipping included) to the person who will make the best commitment of all the messages received to display it in a public space such as a cafe, gallery, bar, or restaurant, in a way that is highly visible and also protected in some meaningful way from grubby hands and sloshy drinks. After it's on display, the winner will please send a photo of it for inclusion on the freakwater.net website. Your place of business will be credited and linked alongside the photo. Shoot your message on this site's "connect" page to enter!
Freakwater lives! Their 2016 release, Scheherazade, has enjoyed universal critical praise, and ranks #63 on Metacritic's list of the best albums from that year. Not too shabby!
Buy the record from Bloodshot now. A 7" of a track from the record, "The Asp and the Albatross", with a non-album B-side, "The Allegory of the Cave", is also available.
Did you enjoy Freakwater's supporting musicians on the 2016 tours? We did, too! Afterward, guitarist Morgan Geer traversed the United States once again, supporting The Handsome Family, and continues to write and release original material. Fiddler Anna Krippenstapel is half of the duo The Other Years. Also, here's a vid from opener Jaye Jayle.
Here is a gallery of images from the Scheherazade recording sessions provided by Edward Neary:
