The album’s mixed and done! Now we’re sending it off to the mastering-guru to give it that magic finishing touch. A May release is what we’re aiming for. Prior to the album release we’re going to put out a single. More news on that soon.
You can listen to one of the tracks off the album on the Metro On Stage site. Please rate the song! Who knows, maybe your vote will get us a deal with Universal? :D
We would also like to extend our thoughts out to Alex Chilton of Big Star fame who has just passed away in an apparent heart attack at age 59. He made such a huge impact on music history. We wouldn’t be here fakin’ it had he not inspired bands like The Posies to make such great music. Joey previously blogged about Big Star’s #1 Record as a part of his “Essential Powerpop Albums” list. You can read that post here.
