If you’re a fan of The Naked and Famous, you know how amazing their music is and what a great show they put on live. If you haven’t bought their album Passive Me, Aggressive You, you can just stop reading this and buzz off. We’re kidding.. kinda. Say you bought the album on CD or iTunes but you didn’t have the vinyl. Or maybe you really like the singles “Young Blood” or “Punching In A Dream” and have seen them on TV but you don’t know about the rest of the album. We’re changing that today, my friends.

Up for giveaway today is ONE Passive Me, Aggressive You vinyl. It’s pretty, it’s shiny, and it sounds great!

Wanna win it? Just email us (with the subject: GIMME MY TNAF VINYL!) with your name and we’ll email you back if you win! (Winner must have a US mailing address)

The Naked And Famous is a name that in 2011 you’ve slowly become more familiar with. First, it was that ever-so-catchy hit Young Blood that you couldn’t help but smile the second the synth kicked in with those unforgettable notes. Then it was a tour with indie darlings Foals and Freelance Whales. Now, the band have come into their own as New Zealand’s finest import since kiwis with sold out tour dates across the country on their last American tour, their songs playing all over alternative radio and the release of their debut album Passive Me, Aggressive You Stateside.

With all these incredible successes under their belt, the band are now gearing up for the release of their newest single No Way off their album Passive Me, Aggressive You and have released a video clip to give you a taste of what’s to come. Beware of broken glass!!!!!

Check out the video teaser for No Way below:

The band are also the winners for an astonishing 7 awards at this year’s New Zealand Music Awards including Best Group, Breakthrough Artist, Single Of The Year (for Young Blood), Album Of The Year (for Passive Me, Aggressive You), Best Alternative Album (for Passive Me, Aggressive You), Best Producers and Best Engineers.

Full video to come soon!

THE NAKED AND FAMOUS (TNAF) will continue to captivate North America this summer with a more dates in support of their UNIVERSAL REPUBLIC RECORDS debut, PASSIVE ME, AGGRESSIVE YOU, including an appearance at LOLLAPALOOZA on August 5th in Chicago, IL. These shows follow their first-ever U.S. tour which brought packed crowds to their feet at SXSW and in every nook and cranny of the country.

THE NAKED AND FAMOUS have already won the hearts of critics and audiences alike via their wickedly enthralling electro pop. Their debut single “Young Blood”, an Itunes Single of the Week in March, has now amassed over 100,000 Soundscan sales, while album PASSIVE ME, AGGRESSIVE YOU has scanned over 20,000 US sales since its March release. The unforgettable video for “Young Blood” has passed five million views on YouTube, illuminating the band’s vibrant sound and spirit.

“Young Blood” has also made its way into the pop culture zeitgeist, featuring in network shows Gossip Girl and Chuck as well as Disney’s Prom movie. Tweeting fans of the song range from Perez Hilton to Nine Inch Nails and A Perfect Circle guitarist, Danny Lohner.

The critical acclaim still mounts. In their music issue, Nylon Magazine sums up the band’s enigmatic style best, “Think ‘Time to Pretend’-era MGMT with accents and a darker sense of humor.” Interview Magazine writes, “The band’s songs are like candy for the sugar-addicted: once you hear one, you’re hard-pressed to ignore the rest,” and Alternative Press named them “a band you need to know in 2011.” Further press praise has come from Glamour, Filter, LA Weekly, Billboard Magazine, and more.

PASSIVE ME, AGGRESSIVE YOU made a big splash on the digital landscape when it officially dropped March 15. It debuted on the iTunes Top 10 Albums Chart and it hit #2 on the Alternative Album Chart. This is all merely the start of their U.S. takeover.

Confirmed tour dates are below.
