Before the release of the band's worldwide euphorically received self-titled debut album this past July, up and coming multi-cultural blues rock newcomers BLUES PILLS had announced an artsy contest. Their fans were asked to paint a band member and submit their creations. After digging through tons of e-mails the band has found the one painting that impressed them the most. The winner receives a big BLUES PILLS fan package including both vinyl and CD versions of the album, a rare shirt and will as well be meeting the band on their upcoming tour. Congratulations to Vincent B. from France!
See dates and the winning painting below .
Commented the band: "Thank you, all great people who have been painting pictures of us for the contest. It was a hard choice to choose the winner since all paintings where amazingly done. You are all winners of our hearts. Anyways one that stuck out of them is this piece made by Vincent from France and he won the contest. Congrats from us to you and thank you for the incredible painting. Enjoy your price, we'll have a beer together on tour! Rock on! Love, BLUES PILLS"
