Another reason to love Penguin Prison. In addition to the awesome music they make, the band is extremely generous. Their new single “Multi-Millionaire” has just been released and to celebrate, they are giving away 7 free remixes! All you have to do is sign up on their mailing list. A very good offer, according2g.
If you are in the New York area, make sure you check out Penguin Prison live on June 16, 2011 at 285 Kent Ave. I’ve seen Penguin Prison live at least 5 times and they are one of the few bands that keeps me coming back for more.
