Lands’ End Canvas Partners with
Independent Music Artist the WANDAS

DODGEVILLE, Wis., October 24, 2011 – Lands’ End Canvas has announced a cross-country tour sponsorship and support of Boston-based indie rock band, the WANDAS.  The sponsorship is part of the brand’s commitment to connect customers with original, undiscovered artists and share a passion for music and style.  Sponsorship of the tour will support the WANDAS’ new self-titled album which was recently released and has been named "One of the 50 best albums of 2011, so far" by Guitar World Magazine.
“Fashion, travel, music – all of us at Lands' End Canvas have strong connections with these things and find inspiration in each," said Chris Kolbe, Brand President, Lands' End. "So when the WANDAS invited us to be a part of their fall tour across the states, we jumped at the opportunity.  Along the way they’ll be sending us exclusive photos and videos from their tour that everyone can check out on our website and Facebook page." 
As a commitment to bringing the band’s music to new audiences, Lands’ End Canvas is featuring a free download of the WANDAS new hit song “Forever and Ever” on landsendcanvas.com.  The company will also update the site with photos, information and updates during the tour.
The WANDAS was one of five bands featured last summer in the Lands’ End Canvas New Music Now campaign.  The group was a standout for Lands’ End Canvas, truly representing the look, feel and sound of the classic apparel line with a modern twist.
“We are thrilled to team up with a brand that the band can relate to and believes in,” said Ross Lucivero, the WANDAS.  “Thanks to the support from Lands’ End Canvas, our ten-week, cross-country tour is a reality.  As we travel from show to show, we will be providing exclusive concert footage, music and photos that will be highlighted on their website at www.landsendcanvas.com/backstage.”
