We've got fans in Belarus, Brazil and Croatia

You may remember that our new album Tsk! was downloaded over 33,000 times via Mininova and Bandcamp. We received mails from Iran, South Africa, Australia, you name it, from people telling us how much they liked our album. That’s pretty cool. Even cooler is the effect it had on last.fm charts. I made this screenshot so that you can witness for yourself that The Gasoline Brothers have fans and listeners in Belarus, the United States, Australia, Poland, Colombia and Brazil. How cool is that?

Gasoline Brothers team up with online eyeglasses retailer for new single

mfswThe contract for the release of the album was signed, the ink is still wet. Here’s the press release (mind you, it’s in Dutch):

Nieuw album The Gasoline Brothers komt half oktober uit by MFSW
The Gasoline Brothers werkt voor nieuwe single samen met online brillenwinkel Brilerbij.nl

Dat er een nieuw album van The Gasoline Brothers aankomt (getiteld ‘Tsk!’), was via de tamtam al bekend geworden. Vandaag werd duidelijk dat – ondanks recessie, kredietcrisis en G20-protesten – de plaat net als het debuut ‘Hm!’ uit 2006 wordt uitgebracht door platenlabel My First Sonny Weissmuller Recordings (MFSW). ‘Tsk!’ verschijnt op 5 oktober.

Labelbaas Aldo Perotti: “Cd’s van Nederlandse bandjes verkopen natuurlijk voor geen meter. Daar verdienen we dus geen droog brood aan. Maar bij MFSW vinden we The Gasoline Brothers een heel toffe band en bovendien hebben ze gewoon weer een ontzettend goeie plaat opgenomen. Dus natuurlijk brengen we dit uit!”

Samenwerking met online brillenboer
Vóór de release van het album brengt de band in september al een single uit: ‘Psychosomatic Heart Failure’. Het nummer is straks uiteraard gratis te downloaden. En wie daarbij zijn e-mailadres achterlaat, dingt ook nog eens mee naar een coole (zonne)bril. Die prijs is niet zomaar gekozen: de clip bij ‘Psychosomatic Heart Failure’ draait om het thema ‘bril’ – als gevolg van een uit de hand gelopen running gag binnen de band. Voor het weggeven van de (zonne)bril werkt The Gasoline Brothers samen met online brillenwinkel brilerbij.nl. Verder krijgen downloaders een gratis remix erbij van Vincent Koreman (bekend van Ra-X, Generationbass en This Is Total War!).

Ook voor de release van het album heeft de band een aantal bijzondere acties gepland. Daarover wordt in een later stadium meer bekendgemaakt.

Video shoot video

The Gasoline Brothers videoshootNow that we’ve picked the first single from our upcoming album (a song called Psychosomatic Heart Failure that you haven’t heard yet – be patient), we’ve also decided to shoot a video. April 11th is going to be the day. We’ll probably dress up as Easter bunnies running around in a green Teletubbies landscape. Anyway, Ebbo Clerkx, mainly known for his work as a typographer, will be shooting and directing the video. We have not set a release date for this single & video yet, stay tuned for more news.

Psst, don't tell anyone: there is a new song on the Web

You’d better keep this silent: thanks to our friend Mister Mailmen Studio, there’s a song from our upcoming album available on the Web. He accidentally uploaded the song to his new (Bandcamp) website and forgot to tell us. Naaah, we’re not mad at him. If you promise you don’t tell anyone, have a listen to this new song called Watch the Fireman. So do you like it?

To cd or not to cd?

Shall we?OK, so here’s the question:  in modern times, should an internet-savvy band still put out their new album as a physical cd and have it sold at record stores? Or should we just put 11 MP3’s on every website and music community we know and forget about those silver discs? We contacted some experts and friends and asked them this question. To cd or not to cd: what do you think? Give us some sound advice please!
