Life in Black and White - Fans only single release!

We over at Gone Savage HQ are rather excited that our new single 'Life in Black and White' has gone down a storm with internet stations far and wide, from Chorley to Leyland and even Blackburn! Culminating in the 'track of the week' award from Steamhouse Rock Nights !

This track however is not released until 4th March so if you want to hear it, you have to go over to our page and check out the stations currently playing it. This was given to them as a 'thank you' for all the support they have given our music over many years. The next phase is to release the single to 'fans only' via our website from the 18th February and this will be a download (WAV/MP3) only option but as a thank you to our fans, they will be able to name their price, all the way from nuttn' to couple of G's in some cases...! (I lied about that last bit, but we did hit the airwaves of Blackburn ...)..

Anyways I'm rambling the official release date is the 4th March unless you treat yourself to option 1 or 2 or both...

As always we really appreciate any support for our music Guys and Gals...

cheers Ian and Will
