Our Twitpic Photo Contest has finally come to a close and we’re honoured to have been captured by so many of your cameras these past years. Choosing winners was not easy. As mom used to say, you're all winners. Still, as promised, we picked some favourites. Instead of selecting 10, we've chosen a drunk baker’s dozen—14 winners:

The sky, the light, the lone lead singer fighting the elements! The clenched fist in the air signaling "There's some fuckin’ worship going on here tonight" Am I right? Am I fuckin’ right!?

In the process of rock-n-rolling or just sweaty and ready to take it up the ass:

Ain’t this a nice selection of freaks. Even I cant figure out exactly what the hell we are doing and how we got that symmetry is beyond both me and the universe... or is it!?

Pelle in an “OH NO!” moment whilst climbing the pillars he discovers he is only 3rd on the bill.

Ah the sweet feeling of accomplishment. The crowd crying and gasping for air as they have just been pounded by The Hives hammer.

Hooray for audiophiles, punk rockers and vinyl geeks everywhere and elsewhere! Your day has come.
In our continuing mission to keep Rock n' Roll alive and kicking, we only want to distribute the very best in auditory excellence. We’ve had the great Steve Marcussen over in LA re-master the 7” of Tarred and Feathered, that’s how much we care. We can't, shan't and won't give you an inferior product.
This all took slightly longer than expected, but as of Friday, copies have begun to appear in stores in Europe and Scandinavia (and in stores on 8/31 in the US of A). The 7" is also available in our merch stores & ready to ship NOW, so to those of you darlings who have pre-ordered - your packages are on the way! Copies with our very own signatures are also up for purchase if that’s what suits your fancy.
