Riff Relevant Anniversary Giveaway! Win a SPARROWMILK / DOOMSTRESS Vinyl Split [D.H.U Records] + More!


(By Leanne Ridgeway, Owner/Chief Editor, RiffRelevant.com)

2018’s month of March brings Riff Relevant to its first anniversary.  We’re grateful and we’re celebrating by giving away some more stuff!

Amazing that it’s only been one year since we’ve gone live, but in these 12 short months, there’s been a mind-boggling amount of support from everyone.  With the help of all our staff writers and guest contributors, there’s been about 1,330 articles published in the past year.  Riff Relevant has been averaging about five articles a day since its start, with interviews, band tours and release news buzz, music and show reviews, exclusives and premieres.

We’ve also teamed up with other music sites, bands, artists, record labels, radio/podcasts, and music event organizers and promoters, to reach out and help support both their individual endeavors and some regional music festivals specific to heavy music and artists.  It’s been a hell of a year!

Combine all that with the most important part of any music site, its readers and listeners.  That means you.  You all who have visited  the site to read some, all, or any of these articles,  or have followed one of the Riff Relevant social media pages.  The feedback and support from you has overwhelmed any possible expectation we could have had.  We appreciate everyone’s interest in the music and bands we’ve been sharing and have no plans to stop anytime soon.

To celebrate the first anniversary of Riff Relevant, we’ve teamed up with Sparrowmilk, Doomstress, and their D.H.U. Records label to hold a contest giveaway.

Not just one, but TWO of you can win a copy of the “Doomstress/Sparrowmilk Split” 12″ vinyl release on one of two limited variants, plus each winner will get a Riff Relevant T-Shirt and a pile of patches, pins, stickers, and other goodies from a whole lot of music folks.  More on that way down below…

Per D.H.U. Records themselves:

“Texas crushers Doomstress team up with Cleveland’s Sparrowmilk to bring you a bona-fide ripper of a split, guaranteed to take the listener on a journey full of doom, despair and the darkened depths of the human mind!”
