Win tickets to release for Astral Swans’ amazing new album Strange Prison

We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: We are huge fans of Calgary artist Matthew Swann (a.k.a Astral Swans).

We think he’s a genius, and his new album Strange Prison, which he’ll release Thursday, May 17 at Broken City, only takes it to the next level.

On the Wednesday before the show, we’ll be posting an interview with him, but today we’d like to do something further to get you excited for the release and the record.

Swann was kind enough to gift us a pair of tickets to give away to readers of theYYSCENE, and you’d be a little silly if you didn’t want them.

Time is tight, so we’re going to make it even easier than usual to win: Go to our Facebook page, find this post and simply like it. That’s it. Zero effort on your part, possible amazing reward.

We’ll let the winner know via direct message by noon on Thursday, so if you enter, please make sure you’re evening is open and you’re ready to go.

Oh, and in case you were wondering if you should enter, below is the video for his haunting, harrowing, gorgeous new tune Controls.
