On Tuesday, February 10, Paste Magazine will be offering the new album from The Damnwells, One Last Century, for free download exclusively from PasteMagazine.com. Visit www.pastemagazine.com/thedamnwells to download the record for free.
A few words from the band, regarding the record:
I suppose the hardest thing to explain to people is why I’m giving this record away. “You’re just goingThe Damnwells are: Alex Dezen (vocals, guitar) and Ted Hudson (bass).
to give it away?” seems antithetical to the human brain. “Is this just a bunch of b-sides or something? Some ‘give away’ material you don’t mind releasing into the ether?” No. Quite the contrary. I have never worked so hard or put so much of myself into a collection of recorded songs. It is for just this reason that I want to give it away. To me it makes perfect sense. I just want people to hear this music, and I don’t want them to have to enter into some kind of contractual agreement with a third party to do so. Download the record, copy it and give it to your friends, lovers, and enemies. Whatever. It’s so hard these days just to get the actual music into people’s houses and cars, let alone their ears. Besides, I know everyone’s broke, maybe I can supply the soundtrack. So, I just want to give this music away because I want people to hear it. I should have done this years ago. I’m starting over.
One Last Century was produced by Freddy Wall
Mixed by Freddy Wall, Recorded by Andrew Ratcliffe
