Strange ways to sell your band

An odd PR email, promoting The Sun (the band of the same name, not the newspaper). It's full of the sorts of things you'd expect - they're releasing a free album, which we'll come to in just a moment - but the subject line is surprising:

Ex Warner Bros Band "The Sun" Release Free Album

I'm guessing that the idea is to try and make it clear that this is a band who have impressed enough people in the industry to get some investment and support, but instead it makes them sound like the most interesting thing about them is that they've been dropped.

Still, while we're here, there's two songs designed to suck you in: So Long Sundays and In Perfect Time. If those delight you, Rock Proper have got the whole lot for you to download and muck about with.
