Sick Puppies are ramping up to the July 16 release of their 'Connect' album and they're ready to connect with fans through Noisecreep our partner site Loudwire by offering up a brand new Epiphone guitar.

What better way is there to rock out with the 'Connect' album than to win this Epiphone Les Paul Special II guitar and jam along to 'Gunfight,' 'Walking Away,' the title track and the Sick Puppies' current single 'There's No Going Back' among other songs? And to top it all off, this particular guitar has been signed by Shim Moore, Emma Anzai and Mark Goodwin, thus making it extra special for those who prefer the memorabilia prospect of the instrument.

Speaking about the new album, Moore recently told Loudwire, "It’s a louder record, but we went for a different sound in terms of the layering of the guitars. So there aren’t as many guitars, but the ones that we do have we’ve turned up a lot more. So if that gives you an idea, it’s a louder record but it’s much more musical."

Sick Puppies recently released the video for their lead single 'There's No Going Back.' It can be seen here. The group also recently announced their first batch of summer tour dates. In addition, the band just taped an online special for Walmart Soundcheck's Risers feature that will premiere on July 15, a day ahead of the new album release. You can currently pre-order the 'Connect' album via iTunes.
