Win Tickets To A Tiny Union Show
THE UNION release brand new album, SIREN'S SONG, next Monday and to celebrate we have an unbelievable competition for you.
We are giving you and three of your friends the opportunity to see a TINY acoustic performance from The Union backstage at their final UK tour date at Manchester Academy 3 on 26 October. You will also get tickets to the full show afterwards and a deluxe copy of their fantastic new album.
We also have deluxe editions of the album to give away to seven daily runners up.
THE UNION - SIREN'S SONG
SIREN'S SONG is the stunning new album from THE UNION.
It is the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2010 self-titled debut and it surpasses even that lofty standard, with Luke and Peter producing a set of songs that rivals just about any rock record in 2011.
From heavy duty rock n roll (the huge, brilliant, swaggering title track) to country rock swing ('The Remedy'), via the blues ('Cut The Line') and beautiful acoustic diversions (such as the lovely 'Orion') this album is like taking a trip through the history of rock music, and loving it all over again.
It's a "classic" album, in the style of the best rock records of the past 40 years - a coherent and complete whole that should be absorbed in one sitting, and then enjoyed repeatedly after that. It's a timeless, and undeniably brilliant rock record and easily one of the best albums of recent years.
The album is released as a standard single CD edition and a fantastic super-deluxe edition which includes Siren's Song on CD, a numbered 12" gatefold hardback cover signed by Luke & Pete, two 12" sized 24 page full colour booklets, a T-Shirt, and a fantastic bonus eight track CD containing previously unreleased live and acoustic tracks.
