We are giving away one guitar every week for an entire year! You can enter to win some of the best guitars in the world autographed by some of the best guitarists in the world for 52 weeks straight.
This week's featured artist is Goes Cube. This week's guitar is an electric Epiphone (SRP $299) signed by the band Goes Cube.
In 2009, Goes Cube astounded critics in the US and Europe with their debut full-length "Another Day Has Passed." Publications cheered the abundance of riffs and aggression pummeling through thick atmosphere, dynamic shifts, and nostalgic nods to punk, noise-rock, and hardcore. It was enough to earn the record a spot on Decibel Magazine's list of the 40 best albums in 2009. After touring (with the likes of Helmet, Intronaut, and East of the Wall) and an acclaimed EP in 2010, Goes Cube is poised to make 2011 their biggest year yet with their second full length album entitled "In Tides And Drifts."
While most bands become more polished, and more produced, Goes Cube did away with the sheen, and opted, instead, for pure rawness. And rather than get mired down in the trends that infect the ballooning metal scene, the band went with the simple philosophy of making their heavy heavier, fast faster, hooky hookier, and pretty prettier. Listeners will also find the gorgeous voice of acclaimed folk singer, Jaymay on two of the album's songs. Her haunting melodies break hearts as the band behind her batters eardrums. After years of touring and recording some of the most eye-opening music, Goes Cube has proven themselves to be one of the most exciting and exhilarating bands in America.
Winner: C. Hohl of New York
