Cold Stone Creamery is hosting a month long fundraiser for the Make-a-Wish Foundation, and MxPx would like you to join them in giving a helping hand.
Cold Stone Creamery is once again holding its annual "World's Largest Ice Cream Cake Social"... and the band will be on hand as "Guest Scoopers" at the Bremerton store on Monday April 25 from 5-8pm. Even if you haven't taken the advice to Move to Bremerton, you can still participate at your local Cold Stone Creamery store...
"To enhance the month-long celebration, all participating Cold Stone Creamery stores will give away free pieces of ice cream cake (developed by Micah, a wish child from the Boston, Mass.area) in exchange for a donation to our local chapter. Many stores will offer activities and entertainment for guests as well. Please support the Foundation by stopping by your local Cold Stone Creamery on the evening of April 25th - and any other day in April! Participating stores in Alaska, Northern Idaho and Washington will host the World's Largest Ice Cream Social."
MxPx will be shooting a video for their new single "Heard That Sound". Where will the video shoot be? Check back for details.
MxPx was at The End (KNDD 107.7 FM) studios in Seattle on the 7-10pm PST show with DJ harms. They premiered their new single, "Heard That Sound". They also played three other tracks off their new album "Panic" and announced that they will be playing an album release show in Seattle at Tower Records on Mercer Street(5th and Roy) June 7th.
For a long time now, there have been some fans making noise about how much they like the song "The Empire"... well we're happy to report that the CD including the song has won a Dove award. The Passion of the Christ: Songs was nominated and won an award in the "Special Event Album of the Year" category. Congrats, guys!

Hey everyone... just wanted to let you know we're trying something new this Christmas.
Our annual Fanclub Christmas song will be available online as a download. We'll have album art, a Christmas greeting, and some other fun stuff up there as well. So check out "It's Christmas And I'm Sick" over at www.fanclub.mxpx.com
We're taking a more DIY approach to many of our projects, so it's all being done 100% by us. Hope you like it!
The song will be available into the new year, so you still have time to sign up and get it!
