Pennywise Reason to Believe Album Free at Myspace

There is undoubtedly a trend of releasing music albums for free / for donations / for what individuals are willing to pay on the Internet. The last months were full of stories about bands like Radiohead or Nine Inch Nails who managed to create lots of publicity by using these new distribution methods that would ignore large parts of the recording industry.

Pennywise is the latest band to release a music album for free. Their album Reason to Believe is available at Myspace at a bitrate of 320 kbit/s including the pdf booklet and jpg cover. All that needs to be done is to add the user Textango as a friend at Myspace who will send a message that includes the download link. The music is DRM free.

Textango seems to be a mobile music distributor according to Wikipedia. Pennywise is a Punk-Rock band in case you have not heard of them before, comparable to Bad Religion in many aspects.

The album Reason to Believe will also be sold in stores in Europe and America.

      Ahhh yes, good old Punk Rock!!! I’ve seen these guys tons of times, first time was in ’91 at our Vet’s Hall. Thanks for giving heads up, we’ll see if they’ve sold out like all the other greedy pop-punks.
