HEALTH Offer Ridiculous Golden Ticket Sweepstakes

When we presented you with HEALTH’s “We Are Water,” I mentioned Get Color was one of the most satisfying releases of ’09, finding the guys tightening their rhythms, adding deeper layers (and harmonies) to their vocals, and writing stronger, more intense hooks without losing the chaos of their core. In this day and age, though, great music’s no longer enough, so the quartet’s also running a playfully self-absorbed Willy Wonka-inspired promotional campaign. The idea: HEALTH made 66 tickets and hid them in the first shipment of Get Color CDs. Each includes a unique code that corresponds to a specific prize. One “Golden Ticket” (aka Grand Prize) earns you a 3-night trip to LA. We’re told if you win this, your “every whim will be attended to,” but I assume there are limits. For now: “Details include accommodation at a band members homestead, as well as various meticulously planned activities culminating in a trip to Six Flags amusement park.” What, no heroin? The complete list of prizes:
