As if being called Girls wasn't hard enough to Google, the San Francisco-based alternative rock group then released an album called...Album. Yeah, brilliant - although it actually was. Or at least close to it. Anyway, the good news now is that they're returning with a mini-album (or an EP as we like to call it) on November 22, through Turnstile. It's called Broken Dreams Club.
MORE news on that is that there's a free track to download from that mini-album, called 'Heartbreaker'. You can get that by going to the official Turnstile site, click here to do that.
Yeah. Erm. We could bang on about it in our own words, but it's probably better to let the band themselves let you know what it's all about. There's an awful lot...
"A friend of mine once told me that all great art is inspiration and then just a lot of hard work. He's a famous artist and used to say this to people who would ask him for the secret to his success. As a band we've come to learn that this is true. We've been welcomed with open arms by so many of you over the last year or so that in turn we've spent all our time fulfilling invitations to play live everywhere around the world. Each time we thought we should give it a rest we would get another offer we just couldn't refuse - who wouldn't want to go to Japan and play with The Smashing Pumpkins, or Julian Casablancas in the south of France?"
"It’s true that when you give love you will receive love and it was only because of the love that we've received from our fans that we have been able to drastically improve the quality of our work. This record is a letter of intent, it's a snapshot of the horizon. We took the money we've made on tour and worked with the kind of equipment and musicians that would have been too expensive for us in the past. All of us have something to say and give and this is what happens when we show a little interest and support in others. We couldn't have made this record without you. So this is our gift to you, our way of saying thank you for giving us the chance to work at the level we've always wanted to and a taste of things to come."
"We really couldn't have done this record without each one of you. This isn't Girls all grown up, but it's certainly the next step up from Album. This is Broken Dreams Club - a record from our hearts to yours."
The band will be playing a few dates in Australia at the early part of December. Click here to see where they are and when.
