NJ pop-punks Man Overboard and Alternative Press have launched a Build Your Own B-side Contest at http://www.altpress.com/contests/view/man_overboard_build_your_own_b_side!
Check out this message from the band for all the details:
While we were recording the Self-Titled album in 2011 we decided that this song would not be making the album. We finished the music but did not track the vocals. We recently recorded the vocals but before we release it for you to hear we want to offer everyone a unique opportunity. We want you to download the instrumental version from the widget below, write and record your own lyrics and melody and submit it back to us. We will pick one winner and their version, along with ours will be available for free download from www.altpress.com. They will also receive some other rad prizes detailed below.
HOW TO ENTER
-Download the wav file from the widget on altpress.com
-Write your own lyrics and melody.
-Record your vocal parts (we suggest garage band if you don’t have access to a studio or home studio).
-Email an MP3 of the song to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Man Overboard will hand select a winner. The winning will receive the following
