Free MP3 copy for all CD orders at Born To Rock Records

In case you didn’t know, the Skin Web Shop has now become Born To Rock Records. With both Skin and the Red White & Blues having albums available, it made sense to merge the shops on both main websites into one big “Powerhouse of Hard Rocking Merch”*.

As part of the new look, we are now offering MP3 downloadable copies of each album free with each CD order. While we might not be able to compete with the likes of Amazon and iTunes on price, for a couple of quid more you get a physical CD and an instant download copy. What more could you want while you wait for Mr Postman to delivery your music?

You can checkout the new shop here.

* I’m sorry for that phrase. It is a poor choice to use. But I could not help it. Sorry…

Hello! Did You Miss Us?

We’re back! After a prolonged snooze thanks to hackers, the Official Skin Website is back from the dead. Sporting a sexy new look inspired by our sister website Born to Rock Records, we hopefully will be sticking around for a while.

So what are the changes? Well firstly, the Skin Web Shop is no more. It has been replaced by the Born To Rock Shop and we are now running an extra special promotion for anyone in the mood for a Skin or Red White & Blues CD: a free high 320k MP3 copy available for immediate download. Yep, IMMEDIATE DOWNLOAD!

This is the model we will be using in the future also, so the fastest, most official mechanism to get your lug-holes around rocking sonic goodness in the future is none other than Born To Rock Records. Support the boys! Buy our stuff! Stay off those other websites like iTunes… 😉
