Our album, Molehills out of Mountains, is now finally available across a range of digital stores, and the initial reviews have been pretty encouraging.    As if this in itself isn’t exciting enough, we are also giving away a special album bundle.  More on that towards the bottom of the page.  We have also got a brand new promo video for the album:

The video you have (hopefully) just watched here is hosted on Vimeo, but if you are more into Youtube, you will also find it there.  In fact, the entire Molehills out of Mountains album is (in one form or another) in this Youtube playlist.  If you want to add a comment on, and/or share, your favourite song from the album, please do.  We’ve also got 3 more full song videos in the pipeline.  More news on those in the coming weeks.

Full digital release of album

Anyway… back to this week’s album release. Molehills out of Mountains has been available directly from us, as well as from Crash Records and Jumbo Records in Leeds for several weeks, but now it has a wider release.  The album is now on the following digital stores.  Simply click any one of these to be taken straight to our album:

The album is probably on other digital stores too, so if you see it anywhere else, please use the comments section at the bottom of this page to let us know where you have seen it for sale. You can also now stream the album on Spotify.

Album reviews

So far, we’ve seen five reviews of Molehills out of Mountains, and each one has had good things to say about it, and there have been some interesting observations.  We’ve included quotes from all five reviews on the What People Say page of our website.  Here is just one excerpt, from the Leeds Music Scene review:

“The carefully crafted and intricately arranged album is astonishingly good…An all round winner and an album I can tell I’ll return to when I’m in need of some perspective.”

We are running this giveaway using social media, and to give the maximum number of people the chance to enter, you can enter on Facebook, on Twitter or on Google+.

On Facebook

  1. Go to the Wilful Missing Facebook Page and, if you don’t already ‘Like’ the page, click the ‘Like’ button at the top.
  2. Click the Home link at the top right of Facebook to go back to your main newsfeed, or click your name to go to your profile.
  3. Share this post (i.e. the page you’re reading now) on your own wall using this link: http://bit.ly/xvRYvm
  4. When sharing the link, include a comment that says The @Wilful Missing album is out now (or words to that effect).  You will notice that after you type the “@” and then start typing “Wilful Missing”, because you ‘like’ our page, Facebook will automatically tag us and make your post show up on our wall too (you may find this only works from a computer, and not from a mobile).  This is how we will see your post.  If you don’t include “@Wilful Missing”, your Facebook post will still be seen by your friends, but we won’t know about it.

On Twitter

  1. Tweet this: The @wilfulmissing album is out now http://bit.ly/xvRYvm #WMMOOM
  2. Simple as that.  You can change the phrasing if you like, but do be sure to use the #WMMOOM hashtag.  That’s how we’ll be able to find your tweet.

On Google+

  1. Go to the Wilful Missing Google+ page, and if we are not already in any of your Circles, add our page to at least one of your Circles.  You’ll see a red and white ‘Add to circles’ option to the right of the band name at the top.  Once we are in your Circles, this will turn to green and white, and it will say how many of your Circles we are in.
  2. Click either the Home icon, or the Google+ heading at the top of the page.
  3. In your Stream, where it says “share what’s new”, share this post (i.e. the page you’re reading now) using this link: http://bit.ly/xvRYvm
  4. When sharing the link, include a comment that says The +Wilful Missing album is out now (or words to that effect).  You will notice that after you type the “+” and then start typing “Wilful Missing”, Google+ will automatically ‘plus’ (or ‘tag’) the Wilful Missing page (you may find this only works from a computer, and not from a mobile). Consequently we will be sent a notification.  This is how we will see your post.  If you don’t include “+Wilful Missing”, your Google+ post will still be seen by your friends, but we won’t know about it.

Closing Date

This giveaway will end on Valentines Day, 14th February 2012.  We will take all the people who participated on Facebook, Twitter and Google+, and randomly draw one winner and two runners up.  Winners will be notified by Sunday 19th February.  We’ll then edit this post to add the names of the lucky winners.

Good luck everyone! 🙂

As it turns out, all 3 of our winners had entered via Twitter. The winner of the first prize was @atlashands while the 2 runners up were @Ron99ification and @Bagpus.  Well done to you three, and thanks to everybody else who took part.
