Last night we posted about a contest for two pairs of tickets to the Triple Crown Anniversary show this coming Monday. Unfortunately, the contest submission was not working but the hard-working souls who put the contest together have fixed the problem. Enter the contest here.

According to Triple Crown Records executive Fred Feldman, earlier reports that the label has issued a contract to New York-based solo artist Tom Scala are factually incorrect. When questioned about the "signing," Fred said "I have no idea who that is, we have not signed him."
After a few false starts, Triple Crown Records and Purevolume have teamed up for a limited time to offer a free digital label sampler. It includes two previews of upcoming Receiving End Of Sirens tracks, new and unreleased tracks from As Tall As Lions, The Dear Hunter, The Secret Handshake and more.
March 6th will see the release of the Triple Crown debut EP from the Secret Handshake. The EP will feature all new music and remixes by Dillinger Escape Plan, Spankrock, P.O.S & more. Look for tour dates to be announced soon.
