Party people! We just posted the art and tracklisting for our new stuff. To be more specific, there’s The Sainte Catherines Dancing For Decadence, and Love Equals Death Nightmerica. Both are out March 21st and both bands will be playing a ton of shows this year, so take a look at their tour dates. Expect to hear brand new songs off these albums very, very soon.
The pride of Wrigleyville, The Lawrence Arms will be offering a new song every day on their MySpace page starting now. Today’s tune is “Cut It Up”, which is believed to be a tribute to the venerable trade of barbering. Totally awesome. But you won’t need to leave the meaning of these songs up to our intepretation because you can win the band’s original lyric sheets and a copy of Oh! Calcutta! on colored vinyl over at Punknews.org. It’s like a contest and shit. 12 different winners, but most importantly, be sure to visit TLA’s MySpace page every day to hear a new song. Their new e-card is out and about now too. Kirk out.
Words cannot describe the pain we had to endure to get our online store back up and running. Actually, the words cocksuckingmotherfuckinggoddamsonsabitches kinda sum it up. But we’re over that, k? Feel free to order away, and you can now order with PayPal, so get rad on that thing.
We’re starting the new store off right, and you can now buy The Loved Ones new record, Keep Your Heart. You get a free TLO sticker with your order too. Hot damn, what a comeback!
Their new EP, Never Trust A Hippy, is coming March 14th and we got some cover art and a tracklisting for you to check out. 2 of these 6 songs will be appearing later on their full length, Wolves In Wolves’ Clothing, which is coming out April 18th.
To set the record straight regarding the upcoming Wolves album, it’s 18 songs, about 35 minutes, there are NOT any hip-hop beats, nor is it influenced by Cream or whatever. Members of the NOFX 7" Club might recognize a few songs, but they are different versions. Check back often to get the straight dope on the new record, a secret SF show, mp3s, etc.
TLA’s new record Oh! Calcutta! comes out March 7th and those nerds will be setting down their latest manuscripts to join NOFX on tour. The Great American Novel can wait, doodz. In an even crazier move, starting February 9th they will be streaming a new song from Oh! Calcutta! each day on their MySpace page. That gives all of you enough time to learn the new record for the big tour. Brilliant!
