On August 3, SPIN editors along with the John Varvatos and Island/Def Jam Records crew, huddled up to narrow down finalists for our international band search, Free the Noise. Bands worldwide, each with a unique edge, entered the competition in hopes to be flown to New York City during Fashion Week and go head to head in front of our guest judges.
To check out the entries and judge for yourself, visit SPIN Earth. Stay tuned in September when we announce our winner!
