Enter to Win - The Perishers

The latest bluestate contest is for a Perishers prize pack, which includes the following items:

* Signed "Sway" EP
* Let There Be Morning CD/DVD
* The Perishers black T-shirt

Gathering comparisons to Coldplay and Keane, Sweden's The Perishers first released Let There Be Morning in their native country in 2003, and have recently completed a North American tour.

The Perishers - "Sway" (WM stream) (Real stream)

If you like what you hear, enter the bluestate contest (thanks to the good people at Filter), and then get over to the band's site, where each week a new Perishers MP3 will be posted in the "Members Only" section. Anyone who registers gains access to new, live, rare, and acoustic tracks. Keep an eye out for a duet with Sarah McLachlan and Ola from the Perishers, recorded live during the tour.

To win, send an e-mail with "The Perishers" in the subject line to bluestatedc @ by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, August 25. We'll notify the winner on Friday. Good luck!
