2013 FAN OF THE YEAR
Every year the MxPx Fan Club holds a contest for the Fan of the Year. Over the years we have had many creative submissions; everything from a video of one fan changing in and out of all the MxPx shirts in his collection, to pictures of an extensive MxPx merch collection, to reminicings of a pair of fan club members who met and got married because of MxPx, to paintings of Mike, Tom and Yuri done by our talented fans. Every year it gets harder and harder to choose a winner and every year we love seeing what creative entries we'll get this time.
Well it's time to dust off your video camera, dig out your MxPx shirts or break out your artistic abilities, it's Fan of the Year time! Your submission can be of anything that showcases why YOU are the biggest MxPx fan out there! Get creative!
This year's prize is truly one of a kind. It is the mock up that was done for our official Slowly Going the Way of the Buffalo RIAA certified gold record. This is a super fan’s dream item!
Los Angeles, CA, November 5, 2013 -- On November 19, legendary MxPx singer and bassist Mike Herrera will release a limited-edition 7" picture disc vinyl of his Guitar Center podcast with Nic Harcourt acoustic performance via Rock City Recording Company. The set was recorded at Guitar Center’s iconic Sunset Boulevard location on June 28, 2012, while the band was in the midst of its 20th anniversary tour.
Side A features a live rendition of "Secret Weapon," the title track from the band's 2007 classic album Secret Weapon, while Side B is "Aces Up," from group's latest album, last year's Plans Within Plans. Just in time for the holidays, it's a must-have for all MxPx faithful and vinyl aficionados alike.
These intimate, stripped-down acoustic interpretations show both Herrera's songwriting and performance prowess. As a bonus, fans will receive a download of all four songs from the Guitar Center podcast—including "Doing Time" and "Drowning." Downloads will be available to all who purchase by November 19 through MxPx.com. Moreover, the pre-order package also comes with a custom-designed Mike Herrera Music guitar pick with the MHM logo on one side and the artist's signature on the other. In addition, fans will receive a copy of his lyric and chord change sheets for "Secret Weapon" and "Aces Up," as well as his personal signature.
MxPx is hitting the road in 2014 and we want to see you there!
