Have you downloaded Tourmaline's new, self-titled EP yet? It's available completely free of charge on their AP.net profile. We're coming up on 1,000 downloads for the ABSOLUTExclusive and we're aiming as high as we can. Check them out and offer your thoughts!

Their Myspace page has two banners designed by AP.net members that you can use to promote the EP.
Tony Pascarella on 07/08/06 - 10:14 AM
We now have a new ABSOLUTExclusive for you from Tourmaline. They've made a brand-new self-titled EP available for download on their AP.net profile. Two songs were produced by Chris Badami (The Early November). Download it for free (either individual songs or the whole thing), and let us know what you think!

Banner contest winners: mindy and whyte39; they will be available on Tourmaline's Myspace soon.
Tony Pascarella on 07/06/06 - 09:04 AM
Have you entered in our Tourmaline Banner Design Contest? The winners get some free stuff from Tourmaline (Matt and I will pick the winners), and we'll use them to help promote the band's exclusively-released 5-song EP, which will be available for download July 5th. Entries for the banner contest are due by Monday, July 3rd (3 AM Eastern), and all the info is in the linked thread.
Tony Pascarella on 06/29/06 - 04:38 PM
We're doing an exclusive with Tourmaline to release their new 5-song EP exclusively for free download. My graphic design skills are kind of limited (and so is my time), so this is your opportunity to design a banner for this exclusive and the band will send you some free stuff to show their appreciation (and AP will throw something in, I'm sure). Here's the scoop; if you have any questions, ask away:
Banner Instructions468 pixels wide by 60 pixels high is ideal, but you can go up to 500x70
Animation would be cool, but is not a necessity; we will probably pick one of each if they're good
Please include Tourmaline, the Tourmaline EP and Absolutepunk.net somewhere in the banner
Make it look...
Tony Pascarella on 06/26/06 - 12:33 PM
