And as if that's not enough to have you licking your lips/rubbing your thighs/rolling your eyes, on June 22nd ‘Feels Like Summer’ will be available as a free download single, direct from the band's website. Are you excited? Well, ARE YOU?
If you are, and you know you are, even if you're pretending that you're not, you are, then you can you head to here for a sneaky peak.
The band have been busy in the early half of '09 recording their second record with Alex Newport (he who has produced At The Drive In and Death Cab) in NYC. That sophomore (sicks in mouth) record will be out later this year.
P.S. Don't tell anyone, but Johnny Foreigner might be writing a new tour diary for us. Shhhh...
