Win a Vinyl Copy of Howlin Rain’s New Album

** UPDATE: This contest is now over. Thanks for participating!

For probably the first time in history, overpriced jewelry, red roses, giant stuffed animals, and psychedelic rock will go hand in hand. Why? Well, it’s because San Francisco-based rockers Howlin Rain are releasing their new studio album, ‘The Russian Wilds,’ on Valentine’s Day in the US. And since we’re in a celebratory mood, we figured we should team up with the band and do something special. So, we’re giving away a vinyl copy of the quintet’s new Rick Rubin-produced record! But, as usual, we’re not going to just let you take it from us. You need to answer a simple trivia question first.

Here’s the question:

“What instruments did former bandmate Ian Gradek play?”

Send the correct answer to and you’ll be entered. Don’t forget to include your full name and address.

Not a fan of vinyl? Preposterous! Don’t worry, you can still pick up ‘The Russian Wilds’ in other formats. Head here for more info.

Contest ends February 9, 2012. Open to US residents only. One entry per household. Winner will be randomly drawn from all eligible entries. Information will never be sold or used for any commercial purposes. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited.
