AnnouncementTo everybody already taking the time to read this, the fact that you are here already means the world to us. As many of you probably know, we have been forced to pull out of the last few shows of the Hollow Bodies tour with blessthefall because our new tour vehicle unexpectedly broke down in the middle of Iowa! We’re stranded, and we need your help to get back on the road! We spent that last day brainstorming and wanted to create some cool opportunities for you guys, that will also help us get back and seeing everyone on tour!

Your support absolutely means the world to us and we seriously cannot thank you enough!

So here is what we’ve got going on:

* Anybody who buys merch here: (http://www.absolutemerch.com/artist/secrets) or donates literally anything here: (http://www.smarturl.it/secretsdonate) between now and the end of next weekend (Sunday May 11, 11:59pm) will personally receive an email from us that will include a link to download the very first demo of “Sleep Well, Darling” that Richard recorded on his phone before recording properly for Fragile Figures.

* Anybody who buys merch or donates at the links above (before the end of Sunday night) will be entered to win the following prize packs!!

Grand Prize:
(1) Schecter guitar signed by the whole band and personalized to you
(1) Stage used cymbal from TRX signed by the whole band
(2) Backstage passes to a Warped tour date of your choosing to come watch our set from sidestage on the Journeys stage!
(1) 25 dollar gift certificate to any Journeys store nationwide
(1) Signed copy of our album Fragile Figures

Two Runner Ups:
(2) Backstage passes to a Warped tour date of your choosing to come watch our set from sidestage on the Journeys stage!
(1) 25 dollar gift certificate to any Journeys store nationwide
(1) Signed copy of our album Fragile Figures

AND we will also be picking 6 additional people to get free signed copies of our album Fragile Figures.

We will be picking the winners at random when the contest is done and announcing the winners through all of our social network sites. Make sure to provide a current email address in any orders/donations because that is how we will contact you if you win!

Make sure to keep checking back, as we will hopefully be adding more prize packs throughout the week.

Remember, any money raised through this will be going directly to fixing our bus and keeping us on the road!

We seriously cant thank you guys enough. From the bottom of our hearts, we love you.

A bus or similar transport would break down for Brand New and the whole site would scream out in despair. The same thing happens to Secrets, and people criticize them trying to get back on their feet.

Some bands will use most to all of the money they make from the tour to pay for bus costs.

I don't think they have a traditional tour bus; Those are all insured and pay for the repair themselves. I imagine they converted something like a short bus into a vehicle for them to tour in.
