City of Ships Unveil Cross-continental Tour, We offer the Minor World 210 gram LP for $7

Inline image 1

Incessant troubadours CITY OF SHIPS, recharged and revitalized are once again set to embark on a monster cross continental tour. The commanding trio are set to bring their thunderous live show to Canada, the US and Australia this July and August. The Ships are out in support of their latest effort, Minor World, an album that was met with critical adoration–rightfully called a “masterpiece” by Alternative Press and “the kind of effort that pushes the band closer to “they can do no wrong” status” by Absolutepunk.net.

To celebrate the band’s pilgrimage, we’ve got a few treats in store for COS fans. First up, we are temporarily lowering the price of Minor World on 210 gram (that’s as heavy as it gets folks) vinyl to just $7. The record can be purchased for that discounted price HERE. Secondly, we are running a contest with our good friends at Modern Vinyl to give away a couple copies of the LP. Head over to modern-vinyl.com to enter. As a final gift, COS’ two previous works released by Sound Study Recordings, Look What God Did To Us LP and the follow up Three Mile Bridge 7″ and both available for FREE digital download right HERE

What people are saying about “Minor World”

“On the 42-minute Minor World, the power trio give us their first masterpiece; the 10-song collection sounds premeditated, complete and seamless” -Alternative Press

“All these sections are beautifully written and executed, all powerful reminders we’re listening to a band that wields top-notch musicianship.” -absolutepunk.net

“You’ll buzz from the stomach-pit butterflies, and then you’ll have the rug pulled out from under you. But, of course… you’ll go back for more.” -heavyplanet.net
