I’ve been trying to think of a way to reward my wizard rock fans for crossing over and supporting my new non-wizard album, When I Was Your Age. I know that many wizard rock fans aren’t necessarily interested in the personal lives of wizard rockers, and WIWYA is a very personal album. The fact that it’s received so much support already is something I really appreciate.
In order to show my appreciation, I am offering a 33% discount on all merchandise in my Whomping Willows online store to anyone who purchases my new album and/or my new STD Puppet Show t-shirt online. Your purchase can happen via DFTBA Records, iTunes, Amazon, or another online store if you can find it elsewhere. The key is that you need to provide me with evidence that you purchased the album (and/or shirt) online. This might be a bit easier if you purchase a hard copy via DFTBA as you’ll receive an email receipt for your purchase. A purchase on iTunes or Amazon may require some clever screen shot action.
In any case, acquire your proof of purchase and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will email you back with a 33% discount code that will be good until January 31, 2012!
If you’re wondering why I chose 33%, that’s because January 9 is my 33rd birthday! Yeah, I’m so old! The cool thing about me is that I’d prefer people buy my music because it’s awesome and not because I’ve tricked them into thinking I’m a teenager.
Here are answers to a few questions that I’m sure I’ll receive:
1. What about people who already bought the album via DFTBA or iTunes?! If you bought it via DFTBA, you should have your receipt somewhere in your email. Email it to me and I’ll send you the code! If you bought it electronically — well, you might be out of luck unless you can figure out a way to prove that you bought it on iTunes/Amazon/etc. Sorry.
2. What about Kickstarter donors? Are they eligible for this discount? They technically bought the album online! Yes, you are correct! Hit me up with an email and I’ll send you the code.
3. What about people who bought the album in person at the Boston Yule Ball? Same deal! Email me! I just need proof that you bought the album, such as a picture of you with the album or something.
This sale begins now and runs until the end of my birthday month! I very much hope you’ll consider purchasing When I Was Your Age either way — it’s definitely the best album I’ve ever released and I think most Whomping WIllows fans will really enjoy it!
