Ohio’s hard-rockin’ quartet Vanity Theft has been hard at work lately- the band is fresh off a nationwide tour with Hunter Valentine, which culminated with several SXSW shows and now a four week residency at Los Angeles’ famed Club Moscow, being the first band in over four years to be invited to a residency there. Their full-length album Get What You Came For came out on March 1st via Vigilante Music/Adamant Records, and now they’re happy to share the news of a new single and remix contest for their fans!
They’ll be releasing the “Rattle Rattle” single on April 26th, which will include remixes by HOUSES, Jesse Christenson and Tiny Bill. On top of that, the band is launching a remix/mashup contest in conjunction with Laptoprockers.com.
The contest lasts from March 30-May 20th- here’s a note from Laptoprockers regarding their partnership with Vanity Theft:
“Laptoprockers are very happy to have Vanity Theft aboard for this remix contest. With five sexy songs to remix, this is our biggest contest to date! Thanks to Ableton and D16 Group Audio Software there are great prizes to win, while the best remixes are eligible for inclusion on Vanity Theft’s remix album due out this Summer. Not to mention the bonus prize for the best Vanity Theft mashup! Who needs a bigger challenge for Spring?”
