Manchester five-piece PINS have announced a series of eBay auctions to help fund their trip to SXSW this year. From 6PM tonight (26th January), fans will have a chance to win numerous rare items and experiences.
“Touring the USA is a dream for any band, but my god it’s expensive,” explains guitar Lois MacDonald. “We’ve decided to auction off some of our treasure in order to fund the trip. It’s really personal stuff, one off test pressings, actual pieces of the Super 8 footage from the ‘Dazed by You’ video, the original Polaroid from the Wild Nights artwork, lyrics straight from Faith’s notebook! It’s tough to part with this stuff!”
