Stray From the Path – Ticket Competition

stray-from-the-path-456ak062910The American hardcore band STRAY FROM THE PATH  are currently on tour across Europe, and we have two pairs of tickets for their upcoming show at Dublin’s Academy on the 28th of February up for grabs. 

STRAY FROM THE PATH are an alternative hardcore band who hail from Long Island New York. The band has existed for the last thirteen years, although there have been a few line up changes in that time. Their most recent album, Rising Sun, is STRAY FROM THE PATH’s third full-length album and was produced by Will Putney at the Machine Shop in New Jersey. The band consist of Drew York on vocals, Tom Williams on Guitar, Anthony Altamura on bass, and Dan Bourke on drums.

In 2007, SFTP took to the road full-time.  After a full year of touring DIY around North America the band teamed up with Sumerian Records to re-release their first official full-length record, Villains. SFTP remained on Th.e road from 2008 through 2009. They hit the studio with producer / periphery guitarist Misha Mansoor to complete the record Make Your Own History, which was released in October 2009.

Longest serving member Tom Williams (guitars) states: “There is a lot to be pissed off about this day and age, whether it is with our country, our world, our music scene, our music industry or our personal lives and what they have turned into over the course of this band’s career.”

“In today’s flooded music scene, it is contrived of gimmicks and characters, with trite or sometimes zero message. The younger kids in the scene are having these gimmicks shoved down their throats, and SFTP tries to show them that there is more in the world and that they don’t have to settle for what they are being choked with.”

“The cover of Rising Sun is a smashed cassette tape with the tape ripped out of it. The tape symbolizing the dying music scene and the ripped out tape portion represents SFTP’s guts on display. This was the longest time we ever spent on a record and the entire band took part in the writing process. It’s about as honest as it gets.”

We have two pairs of tickets to give away, and to be in with a chance of winning tickets, simply answer the following question.

The band released a download only single in 2012, what was its name?
