Long Ride Home – Around the World in 88 Days

Long Ride Home - Around the World in 88 DaysTo celebrate the release of new single ‘Long Ride Home’ on 8 July, Attica Rage have set rock & metal fans across the globe a record-breaking challenge:
to pass one copy of their 88MPH album CD around the world in 88 days!

The aim of the game is to cover as many countries in the world as possible, passing the one individual CD album forward each time, making its own ‘long ride home’ back to Glasgow, Scotland by 3 October 2013, in time for the end of the band’s UK album tour. With each participant uploading photos/videos and interacting on the official Facebook Event Page, the band and fans will be able to track the album’s journey as it’s passed across the globe over the following 12 weeks.

Everyone can get involved – whether you are a willing participant or just an enthusiastic supporter, everyone can play a part. Use the Facebook Event Page to message other fans, volunteer, network and become part of this unique heavy metal chain letter!

We need everyone to share this out to as many friends, family and rock & metal fans across the world as possible. This is a huge challenge and one, as far as we know, that hasn’t been attempted before. If you know any radio DJs, journalists, webzine contributors, rock press & media in YOUR country that would be interested to help spread the word, make sure and fire them over the link to the event page.  For more info and rules, visit the 88 Days page on the official website.

At the end of the 88 day challenge, every fan who has taken part, reported in and forwarded the pack on to a new country will be sent their own CD album, signed by the band members, with one lucky fan selected at random receiving a goody bag packed full of Attica Rage 88MPH merchandise!

New album 88MPH has been snapped up by fans since its release with international sales and positive reviews from the rock press.  ‘Long Ride Home’ is the third single to be released from the album and the band are setting their fans a special challenge:  to pass one copy of the CD album around the world in 88 days and return it back to Glasgow by 3 October, in time for the last date of their UK album tour.  

On 8 July, Attica Rage will post a fan in England a pack containing one 88MPH CD album, a world map and Attica stickers – the fan marks their location on the map with a sticker and signature and uploads a photo or video clip of them with the CD to the bands Facebook page.  The fan then posts the CD pack onto another Attica Rage fan in another country, with that next fan repeating the process.  The band and Facebook followers will be able to track the album’s journey as it’s passed across the globe over the following 12 weeks and witness it’s ‘long ride home’ back to Glasgow for the end of the band’s UK tour.  Every fan who takes part, reports in and forwards on the pack will be sent their own CD, signed by the band, at the end of the 88 day challenge, with one participant selected at random receiving a goody bag packed full of Attica Rage 88MPH merchandise.  

Full info & details will be posted on the official website and Facebook page on 8 July 2013.
