We have a bunch of updates for you today...
Firstly, there is a group of tickets that has become available for the May 6th Royal Albert Hall show in London. These tickets were being held for lighting, sound and film equipment (for a possible filming of the performance) that we have decided to pull. The tickets will be released on Friday, April 16, at 10AM EDT (TOMORROW). Here is the ticketing link: http://www.royalalberthall.com/tickets/the-national/default.aspx
Secondly, we are very excited to announce that our friends Buke and Gass (http://www.bukeandgass.com/) will open the Electric Ballroom and Royal Albert Hall shows in London and the two Berlin shows in May. Buke and Gass are Brooklyn-based two-piece, Arone Dyer on the “buke” (a self-modified six-string baritone ukulele) and Aron Sanchez on the “gass” (a guitar-bass hybrid of his own creation). Both of them play double duty mobilizing a small army of foot percussion. We like them so much we signed them to our very own Brassland Records, which will release the band's debut album "Riposte" in early Summer. Here is a link to a track off the new record: http://www.bukeandgass.com/songs/singles/Medulla%20Oblongata.mp3
Speaking of Brassland, the label is reissuing "Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers" on limited edition vinyl (500 Copies). A larger edition vinyl re-press of the band's entire Brassland catalog will happen later this year. Also, you can check out CLOGS excellent new record "The Creatures in the Garden of Lady Walton". More info available on all at: http://www.brassland.org/
Thirdly, independent retailers in the US will be offering a deluxe limited edition version of High Violet on CD and Vinyl. You can only get this version of the album at select indie retailers found on this map: http://www.highviolet.com/indieretail/. The deluxe version is not available for pre-order and will only be available in the United States.
Fourthly, it is now possible to pre-order High Violet online.
