War Tapes

War Tapes

PlugInMusic.com is having a War Tapes contest! One grand prize winner will receive an autographed copy of War Tapes' "The Continental Divide" CD and War Tapes stickers. Four runners up will each receive War Tapes' "The Continental Divide" CD and War Tapes stickers.

“We call it heart-quaking doom pop,” says Neil Popkin of the sound of War Tapes' first full length album, "The Continental Divide," now available by Seattle-based indie Sarathan Records.

The foursome includes Neil Popkin (singer/rhythm guitarist, from Boston), his sister Becca Popkin (bassist, also from Boston), Matt Bennett (lead guitar, from Hawaii) and William Mohler (drummer, from SoCal). They've been raking in rave reviews since their 2006 live debut, and the early buzz on War Tapes earned airplay on such tastemaker radio stations as BBC Radio 1 and Live 105 in San Francisco, while “Dreaming of You” was aired on NBC’s New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly (and "The Night Unfolds" for a week in March). The band has also already played shows and/or toured across the US and in the UK with The Smashing Pumpkins, Tiger Army, Shiny Toy Guns, Moving Units, The Bravery, Longwave, VNV Nation and The Unseen--even before releasing their first retail EP in Oct 2008.

Congratulations to the grand prize winner, Marie Abendroth, and the runners up, Kelly J Stein, Scott Schaeffer, Leslie Davis, and Aaron Napier!
