MINUS STORY Announce Ghost Contest Winner, JORDAN GEIGER Gives Away More Free Music

MINUS STORY ? freshly back from their mini-tour with JOHN VANDERSLICE ? are excited to announce the winner of their No Rest For Ghosts Contest. MICHAEL FURR of Georgia takes the cake with his artful packaging and song “Zombies In Da Hood”. You can hear this song as well as check out some of the runners up in the contest at Minus Story’s newly renovated website.

In other Minus Story-related news, frontman JORDAN GEIGER has made the fourth installment to his Monthly Free MP3 campaign with the song “Sink Your Teeth Into Me”.


We’re very excited to announce that MINUS STORY frontman JORDAN GEIGER has been working feverishly on new material for an upcoming solo release on Jagjaguwar. He’s got so much material and is so pleased with it ? even in its nascent form ? that he’s decided to give away rough mixes of the songs as he records them. Indeed it is a rarity for an artist to allow his process to be so transparent to his fans, but Mr. Geiger’s not one for smoke & mirrors. To honor his wishes, we’ve opted to help him give away the songs by posting one new song per month for the next twelve months on our site. You can opt to go to the JORDAN GEIGER FREE MP3 PAGE on our site or to the JORDAN GEIGER MYSPACE PAGE to get the tracks. Either way, they are absolutely free and totally unfinished! How’s that for a deal.

Also, at the end of this month, MINUS STORY hit the road with John Vanderslice in the American South. See our tour dates page for most up to date confirmations for the Minus Story/John Vanderslice tour.
