A couple years ago, I was lucky enough to win a drum skin signed by the band Marianas Trench. I was stoked because they are my all time favourite band. I put it in a frame on my wall and it’s been hanging there ever since.
Who Are Marianas Trench?
Marianas Trench is a Canadian pop punk band from Vancouver, BC. The band consists of four members, Josh Ramsay, Matt Webb, Mike Ayley, and Ian Casselman.
They formed in 2001 and have released four full-length albums so far in their career. A few of their most popular songs are Who Do You Love, Stutter, Fallout, and Pop 101.
How I did It!
I was a regular user on the band’s fancorps website.
Fancorps is basically a website where you can sign up and complete different offers to earn points. The offers usually involve sharing things on social media, such as a link to their newest music video.
For the drum skin though, I didn’t even have to use my points to redeem it. I was chosen to receive one because I was an active member.
The band even retweeted and replied to my tweet!
Unfortunately, the community on that site isn’t as active as it used to be. I’m hoping once another album comes out, maybe that’ll liven it up again.
If you’re interested, by all means go check it out. I don’t have a specific link for this website, so just search up Marianas Trench fancorps, and you’ll find it. It’s completely free to sign up.
As of May, 31st, Marianas Trench’s fancorps site has been officially closed. Oh well, was great while it lasted.
