Album ETA: 23 days.
We've just released the first single from The Age of Entitlement, ROUNDABOUT - a 50s-infused baller of a track which will, and I quote, "blow the cobwebs off of your stereo". It's been playing a heap on Double J, whose Assistant Music Director said "if you don't like this track, you don't have a soul". Souls are overrated though.
We didn't do a 'proper' video for it, but Kris did compile an iMovie (lol) of great shots taken by photographer Michael Mortlock during the recording session. So watch and listen to ROUNDABOUT here: https://youtu.be/k5Ad9iu962E
If you purchase the iTunes edition
of The Age of Entitlement
, you'll receive this track along with "Hey Rain!" instantly.
We each had a lot going on during making of "The Age of Entitlement", personal stuff (don't ask). Even typically daggy dorks have dark sides, and our good friend and ally Campbell Hynam-Smith was there to document some of what went on. He's compiled this 2nd Global Trailer for The Age of Entitlement
which is about as 90s London-Hugo Boss moody as you can get: https://youtu.be/yXiWUMjmYbA
Tour date(s) announced...
The album launch tour for The Age of Entitlement
is still a few weeks from being announced, but one of the festivals that we are playing as part of the tour have blown the lid off that. So, yes, we are playing Fremantle Town Hall as part of Fremantle Festival on Saturday, 24th October. Tickets can be found here
Last chance to pre-order...
After a mountain of emails and a flurry of phone meetings, we've made the decision to *extend* our pre-order offer on CD & Vinyl purchases until 11:59pm Thursday July 23 UTC.
It's increasingly difficult to connect with even the 15,000-odd fans we have on Facebook - many posts are only disseminated to less than 10% of our followers - so, we realise that many people were caught at the last minute without realising the offer was there in the first place.
So, head on over to www.thebasics.com.au
and order your CD or Vinyl
copy of The Age of Entitlement
by the end of Thursday July 23 to receive:
1. A exclusive bonus disc of demos, rehearsals and outtakes from the making of The Age of Entitlement (nb: this may take the form of a digital download, pending postage costs).
2. A collection of "Postcards from Abbey Road Studios", shot by acclaimed DOP Campbell Hynam-Smith during the recording sessions.
3. One of these awesome 3B Records badges for you to wear loud and proud!
