"WHISKEY WITH KINSKI" CONTEST + SPRING TOUR DATES + NEW SINGLE

March 06, 2013

Life is hard, you know that, Kinski knows that, hell, it’s practically the reason why whiskey and face-melting rock were invented in the first place! So with that in mind, and in celebration of their upcoming Spring Tour and forthcoming album Cosy Moments, Kinski wants to treat one lucky fan to a free show and a few rounds of their favorite vice! To enter the “Whiskey with Kinski” contest, all you have to do is “like” the Kill Rock Stars Facebook page or follow us on Twitter and guess the band’s favorite whiskey. There's a flier to comment on at with your answer or you can tweet at the label with the #cosymoments tag respectively. Obviously, to win this you have to be of legal age. Hey, like we said, life is hard sometimes. Here are the tour dates...
