Happy 2nd Birthday, PeteHatesMusic – Let Us Give You Prizes (Daft Punk, Phoenix, more!)

If you thought PeteHatesMusic was bad before, it’s now time for the terrible twos. That’s right, we are now celebrating our 2nd birthday! To celebrate, instead of you giving us amazing gifts and money (any of which can be emailed to pete@petehatesmusic.com by the way), we thought we’d give you a chance to win some awesome albums (such as Daft Punk, Phoenix, Beady Eye, and others) from this year. Some Year 2 highlights of why we’re in a joyous mood:

We won Best Music Blog in the 2012 Canadian Blog Awards
– We were shortlisted for Best Pop Culture & Entertainment Blog in the Ninjamatics Canadian Weblog Awards
– I was nominated for Music Journalist / Blogger of the Year for the 2013 Canadian Music and Broadcast Industry Awards

We interviewed some great bands:
Stars
CHVRCHES
Daughter
Kodaline
Swim Deep
Django Django
And many more.

We covered some cool concerts and festivals:
Optimus Alive in Portugal
Ottawa Bluesfest 2012
NXNE 2013
CMW 2013
Radiohead in London, UK
Muse in Toronto
And tons more.

Enough showing off to my Dad, let’s talk about the PRIZES up for grabs:
– Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories with a BONUS Daft Punk mask (some assembly required)
– Daughter’s If You Leave (bonus: you can watch us interview them)
– Phoenix’s Bankrupt!
– MS MR’s Hurricane
– How to Destroy Angels’ Welcome Oblivion
– Beady Eye’s BE

A HUGE thanks to Sony Music and Universal Music for outfitting us with these cool prizes!

So what do you have to do to win this prizes? It’s simple (sort of).

No one likes rules (except for those lawyer-type people), but there are a few critical ones for this contest. There’s no purchase necessary and we won’t share your information with anyone. You must enter via Twitter (explained below), and there’s only one entry per person – anyone found with multiple Twitter entries is a loser (in both life and the contest). Please – do not retweet the heck out of this thing, either – like bedside beers, one is enough. Just follow us on Twitter, do the tweet we ask you to do, and one of these fantastic albums could be yours. The contest ends on Friday, July 12 at 12:00pm PST / 3:00pm EST.

How to enter – Twitter

Step 1 – Follow @PeteHatesMusic on Twitter. If you already follow us, you’re awesome (or I’m blackmailing you).
Step 2 – Tweet one of the six phrases below this line with the name of the artist’s album that you want to win:

Happy birthday PeteHatesMusic! I want to win the DAFT PUNK album. Follow @PeteHatesMusic and tweet to enter http://bit.ly/12qYLHD

Happy birthday PeteHatesMusic! I want to win the PHOENIX album. Follow @PeteHatesMusic and tweet to enter http://bit.ly/12qYLHD

Happy birthday PeteHatesMusic! I want to win the HOW TO DESTROY ANGELS CD. Follow @PeteHatesMusic and tweet to enter http://bit.ly/12qYLHD

Happy birthday PeteHatesMusic! I want to win the BEADY EYE album. Follow @PeteHatesMusic and tweet to enter http://bit.ly/12qYLHD

Happy birthday PeteHatesMusic! I want to win the DAUGHTER album. Follow @PeteHatesMusic and tweet to enter http://bit.ly/12qYLHD

Happy birthday PeteHatesMusic! I want to win the MS MR album. Follow @PeteHatesMusic and tweet to enter http://bit.ly/12qYLHD

Following us on Twitter does not enter you into the contest – you must tweet one of the above phrases in addition to following us. You must also not have a locked/private Twitter account because then we can’t see you retweet us!

Simple, right? Okay, not really. Anyway, if you win, @PeteHatesMusic will send you a direct message on Twitter to gather your address information, and we’ll ship you a free copy of the album. And who says PeteHatesMusic sucks (besides all of my friends)?
