Hi all Porcupine Tree fans out there, especially from the US.

I received this e-mail from roadrunner records today, and got excited. Later on I realised, as a European, I can't apply, so I thought I'd give everyone else a chance, so here's it attached.

Quote Porcupine Tree and Roadrunner Records are looking for new hard working members to promote Porcupine Tree's newest release, out this fall. Fill out an application by Sunday June 14th and you will have a chance to be picked to attend an exclusive listening party on Tuesday June 16th, hosted by Steven Wilson in New York City! 

Ten runner-up's will receive an autographed copy of the new album the week it hits stores.

Rules: Applications must be submitted by Sunday, June 14th, 2009. Offer only available to United States residences 13+ years or older. Contest only grants access to the listening party. This contest does NOT include travel expenses.

Here's the link:

http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/strteam/signup.aspx

Hope you'll be getting the autographed copy... I wish I was Cry

Here's hoping to be a runner-up. I'd have to figure out how to travel 1000 miles if I actually win...

What exactly does the "promotion" involve? I can't seem to find that anywhere...?

I believe they require you to sleep with people and convince them to buy merchandise and get them to travel to shows wherever they may be.  But I could be mistaken. Tongue

A street team ... ROTFL. Well, as long as they don't start making hip-hop or wearing baseball caps backwards, I guess it's just something that Roadrunner insisted on.

To me a street  team sounds like wearing t-shirts and giving out leaflets. But who knows.

^ I just remember the phrase "street team" from an episode of CSI - where the street team of one gangster rapper murdered members of the street team of another, if I remember correctly.ErmmWink

Its strange that they only want these Street teams in the US? Probably just as many, or more PT fans up here in Canadia!!!

I've been doing everything I can to promote and support this band. I've bought their entire discography. I've hooked my dad and my brother on them. I tell friends about them. I write PT reviews on my blog. 

I think they deserve to be bigger than they are. I mean, what's the difference between PT and a huge band like, say, Muse? Wilson is equally as talented. I think its because Muse have better promotion.
Hello, mirror. So glad to see you, my friend. It's been a while...

Oh come on, you are quite obviously bucking up for freebies from PT.  Come to think of it, that's kind of a good idea. LOL
