On May 22 The Genuine Fakes will join The Mommyheads from New York for an on-stage performance at The Cave Rock Club in Sundbyberg. We are psyched about this, we hope you are too! Join the party, bring your friends. Tickets are only 100 SEK and can be bought through Tickster.
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?😀
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.
The Songbox Fan Crusade compilation will be released through iTunes Music Store on Tuesday 31 March!
The Genuine Fakes contribute two songs – “The Promise” and “I Don’t Want It” and those two tracks make up the second official release from the band. The first was the Posies cover “Somehow Everything” on “Beautiful Escape: The Songs of The Posies Revisited”.
The price of the album will be 90 SEK (ca 9€) and it will be released exclusively through iTunes on March 31, and a couple of weeks it will also be available through other online stores such as CDON.com, Sony Ericsson Play Now Arena and Nokia Music Store.
