February 22nd is a BIG day for the FACE THE MUSIC: WITH A VENGEANCE tour. Why, you ask? Well, we wouldn't want you missing out on anything, so here's why:
1) Photos for the Beside You Video need to be in by the end of the day on February 22nd. Send a photo of you and ANYTHING Marianas Trench related, and send it to email@example.com with the city where you will be attending the show. If you can't attend a show, send your photos in anyway!
2) Choir video submissions are due at the end of the day on February 22nd! Please make sure that you have no more then 16 people in your choir. You don't have to be a school choir, but you will need to submit a video of your choir singing Fallout and/or Stutter to enter. Record a video of your choir, post it on YouTube, and send the link (as well as your contact info and the show nearest you) to firstname.lastname@example.org
And... (this is the most important one)
3) VIP ticket packages will ONLY BE SOLD UNTIL FEBRUARY 22ND! That means that if you've been waiting around to get one later, you're running out of time! Pick up your VIP ticket package at http://www.fanexperience.ca/marianastrench/
There's officially 5 weeks away until the unofficial start to the FACE THE MUSIC: WITH A VENGEANCE tour in Toronto at the Canadian Radio Music Awards, and we can't wait to see all of you on the road!

Bringing the Face The Music: With A Vengeance tour to more people this spring is definitely something we're excited about. This round, we get to visit some really interesting places and of course meet some really awesome new (and old) fans (that's you!).
One of the things that made the last tour so great was a video that we made, that played during "Beside You." We got to spread your love around to everyone who was at each show, and we want to do that again!
So, all you need to do is send in a photo of you (and your friends) and anything Marianas Trench. This could be a picture of you at one of our shows, a picture of you with us, or a picture of you in a Marianas Trench T-Shirt, holding up a CD, a tattoo, anything. This is your chance to spread your love to everyone at each show!
To submit your photo, send an email to email@example.com along with your photo and the show that you're planning on attending. Please send your photos in before Friday February 22nd.

Last fall, we traveled across Canada on the Face The Music Tour, and there were some pretty cool things that made the show extra special:
1) Josh learned how to fly.
2) We got to take our pants off.
3) We had local choirs join us on stage during FALLOUT and STUTTER!
While we can't tell you if the first and second cool things are going to happen again, we can most definitely tell you that we are once again inviting local choirs to join us on stage during FALLOUT and STUTTER.
So, if you're part of a choir and want to be part of this, here's what you do:
1) Record a video of your choir singing Fallout and Stutter.
2) Upload it to YouTube.
3) Send a link to your video, as well as your choir's name, home city and what show is closest to you, to firstname.lastname@example.org
And we'll pick a local choir from each city to join us on stage!
Please note that choirs must be limited to 16 people, and submit your videos by Friday, February 22nd!
(Choirs that performed and/or submitted videos last fall are welcome to submit another entry)
We were pretty blown away by the choirs last fall, and can't wait to check out your videos again this round. Good luck everyone!
