I get all kinds of press releases sent to me. Most of them go unused. That would be true about the one I just got about the new "ZUNE Ignition Artist of the Month", but the timing was just too perfect.....
BAND OF HORSES is the Zune Ignition Artist of the MonthBand of Horses' new album is also streaming at AOL. More on Band of Horses' corporate ties, here. The new Zunes are out November 13th.
In conjunction with the new album "Cease to Begin" which is due to be released TOMORROW October 9, Band of Horses is currently participating in the ZUNE 'Ignition' artist program. The Ignition program provides a unique multi-platform online promotional push for artists through Zune, MSN, and Xbox.
