Obviously this is a jag of the highest order, but I'd like to think there is some level of general interest on the board about this, and that some people here who would genuinely be interested may not necessarily have heard about the release, as we can't afford expensive PR or anything!
Anyway, our debut album is released today, Monday 2nd November, through Smalltown America Records. It is called 'Empty, Derivative Pop Songs'. It has 11 tracks, and is 42ish minutes long.
It is available to order from the label website for £8 : www.smalltownamerica.co.uk
It is, from today, in whatever shops are still trading. If they don't have a copy in store, they will be able to order it in for you.
It is available from various online retailers in physical form, and is also available digitally on itunes and sites like that.
We already have an 8/10 review in Rock Sound or so I'm told, and should hopefully be getting more coming in this week, including a DiS appraisal!
We are also off on tour to promote the album, a co-headline with our totally rocking friends The Muscle Club (except Bath, Coventry, and Reading where they aren't playing!), so come down and see us if you live in any of the following places :
