Jersey Budd's Christmas Giveaway + help from Kasabian; tour dates

Jersey Budd

Merry Christmas from Jersey Budd!

After signing up to revolutionary new fan-centred music service Bandstocks (Patrick Wolf, frYars) earlier this year, the Leicester-born troubadour is offering fans a sack-load of early Christmas presents, including free downloads and discount tickets for his New Year headline tour.

The first 25 fans to book in advance for each of Jersey's 12 February dates pay just £1 per ticket, while all other buyers get a free download of previously-unheard track "Foolin' Around".

"All this change in the industry is an opportunity for artists AND fans" says Jersey, donning his blue and white LCFC Santa hat. "Bandstocks gives me total control over everything (music, artwork, marketing, etc) so I can be as creative as I want, while the fans get a share of album profits and tons of other privileges including a download of the album on release. In this goodwill season, £1 tickets is a festive way of giving something back... you've got to look after the fans if they're going to help you make an album!"

"Jersey's the true gentleman of rock and roll," added Kasabian's Serge Pizzorno. "If anyone deserves our backing it's him!"

Jersey and Serge aren't the only ones filled with festive generosity... Leicester City Football Club have joined Leicester lads Kasabian in contributing to Jersey's Bandstocks album kitty, each backing the mad Foxes fan as he guns for chart success with forthcoming debut album 'Wonderlands'.

'Wonderlands' is out February 16, 2009 on Bandstocks / This Feeling.

New single "Visions Of You" is released February 9th.
