Can you tell Christmas is just two days away? Everybody's getting in the holiday spirit it seems. We just heard that the Fray is giving away five unreleased Christmas MP3s. Well, the first one, fittingly enough, "The First Noel," is absolutely free, no strings attached. The other four are free, too, but there's a slight catch. To get your hands on the other tracks ("O Come, O Come Emmanuel," "Silent Night," "Away In A Manger" and "O Come All Ye Faithful"), you need to join the band's fan club (yeah, we know -- we're still trying to wrap our heads around the fact that a local band has a fan club).
And membership -- which is free for a limited time -- evidently has its privileges. Besides being hooked up with the yuletide tunes, the year-long membership entitles you to all the perks you'd expect from being in a fan club -- you know, like getting exclusive access to buy presale and VIP tickets to shows, the inside track on all band-related news, more music, videos, merch and stuff like that, as well as a signed glossy 8X10 of each band member, along with a lock of each guy's hair (okay, we might be making that last one up; there's no mention of a photo or any sort of DNA-related items).
