The first song from the new album is finished! And like all bands say about new material – it’s the best we’ve done so far! 😀
We’ll have some new video clips for you soon. Previous clips can be found on thegenuinefakes.tv.
Also want to remind you of the gig on the 30th:
We had a great time this weekend with our new-found Finnish friends. The Wonderminers and The Sugarrush put on good performances, and Vesa and Mikko were excellent club hosts. Somehow we just knew that a club called Flavor of the Month would be great! 😉 We hope to be back soon again!
Here’s a little clip of us doing “Irreplaceable”, courtesy of Petri from The Wonderminers.
On September 3 we’re heading over to Turku, Finland to play at Flavor of the Month – a powerpop club at Pikku-Torre. It’s our first show outside of Sweden, so we’re pretty psyched. Joining us on this evening are Finnish powerpop bands The Sugarrush and The Wonderminers. The Sugarrush covered The Posies‘ “Chainsmoking in the USA” on Beautiful Escape: The Songs of The Posies Revisited, to which we also contributed our version of “Somehow Everything”.
More info about the show can be found here.
Check out “Stereo” by The Sugarrush!

On August 12 we’re playing at WayOutWest in Gothenburg. It’s one of Sweden’s biggest and best festivals and we’re thrilled to get the opportunity to play there. The venue is Parken, the time is 9-11 pm. We and three other bands will do 15 minute showcase sets. See you there!
We’re doing a showcase gig at Alcazar in Stockholm tonight. We go on stage at exactly 10 pm so don’t be late! Check the calendar for more information.
After this gig we’re going to take a break from live performances until fall when it’s time to promote the album. But we’re going to release another single before that, accompanied by a video. More news on that soon!
Just a reminder about the gig on Saturday with The Mommyheads. Also added to the roster are Even Adam. It’s going to be a great night!
