It’s time to dust off the old record player, put back that copy of Barry Manilow II that you obviously only listen to because your mom left it there, and beef up that vinyl collection of yours. Just like that time we grudgingly bailed you out of jail, Consequence of Sound, as always, has got you covered. This time, however, we are armed with just the right amount of hard-rock goodness. Specifically, eight LPs of hard-rock goodness from Sacramento-based, alternative hard-rock outfit, Deftones.
We are giving away a copy of the band’s new limited-edition, career-spanning box set, Deftones: The Vinyl Collection, 1995-2011, to one lucky reader. And, get this: according to the band’s team, this is the only remaining copy of 1,000 box sets created that’s still up for grabs (the rest are sold out!)
The massive set contains the band’s first seven albums (from 1995’s Adrenaline to 2010’s Diamond Eyes) as well as their Record Store Days LP Covers, all re-cut and pressed on 180-gram vinyl. And since no box set would be complete without it, the collection also includes a unique lithograph and cover art.
So, let’s get this started: How do the Deftones make you feel? Do you want to scream from the rooftops? Maybe some hushed singing from halfway up the stairwell, instead? Well, follow both @coslive and @deftonesband on Twitter and send us a tweet explaining how the band have impacted your life. Anything from your favorite memory containing their best song to the most badass day ever that happened after you bought your first album of theirs can be included. Just remember, keep it creative and your escapades legal (we can’t afford to bail you out again with the holidays coming up).
We’ll pick a winner on December 12th at 12:00pm ET.
