Glasvegas Vinyl Giveaway!!!!

Glasvegas, who've been proclaimed as "The Best New Band in Britain" by the NME and debuted on the UK charts in the # 2 spot it's first week, will digitally release their self-titled, debut album tomorrow, Oct. 7th, 2008, with a physical release to follow on January 6th, 2009 after finishing a string of well-received US tour dates this past week.

Glasvegas, who formed in Scotland in early 2006, caught the attention of British music mogul and tastemaker Alan McGee, who heralded Glasvegas as "The most exciting thing I've heard since Jesus and Mary Chain," while playing a gig at Glasgow's mythic King Tut's Wah Wah Hut (a 300 capacity hall renowned throughout the UK as a new talent showcase and prescient host to shows by then-emerging artists like Oasis, Radiohead, Beck, Travis and others).

The members of Glasvegas -- James Allan (vocals, rhythm guitar), Rab Allan (lead guitar, backing vocals), Paul Donoghue (bass guitar, backing vocals) and Caroline McKay (drums) -- spent the earlier part of this year recording the band's self-titled debut album at Brooklyn Recording Studios with production by Glasvegas frontman James Allan and Rich Costey (Interpol, Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Mew). The album premieres new recordings of the group's early singles "Daddy's Gone" and "It's My Own Cheating Heart That Makes Me Cry," as well as new songs including "Geraldine," the debut single from the album
