AHHH!!! DUDES!!! Just got an email from @iamfrench letting me know that @annieauto’s debut album is finally out!
Dude, I LOVE me some Annie Automatic. I got to kick it with them last year in studio, and seriously – they are the NICEST people on the planet just following their passion. So so so much love and respect!!!
BAHHHH!! Here’s a love note from French:
It’s finally here! Our Debut Album, which we’ve spent the better portion of the last year working on, is DONE.
Let me be the 1st to say, Thank You, for all the Love and Support – all the Inspiration and Encouragement we’ve received from people looking forward to it! It helps.
…And an Enormous Thank You,
to everyone who has been a part of it and helped us to really be able to do what we want with it,
to make something we’re so proud of.
It will be available everywhere, 8/23.
It’s called “Don’t Look Down” –
so that we all remember that the key to Living and Loving the way we want is to not think too much and just go for it. Be Brave… You’re worth it.
Mixed by Kyle Moorman, and Mastered by Tom Baker, it came out Huge.
The 1st single, “Burn This Prison”, will be available EVERYWHERE online on July 12th, and all your local radio stations will have it – so be sure to call em and tell em to play it 🙂
(“Burn This Prison” is a story told from the voice of an innocent man, wrongly imprisoned- he takes us through life in a cage, and tells us about the Home and the Love he hasn’t seen in 10 years, and how he plans to escape…and whether he succeeds, or is killed in the process, it’s his last attempt to do what’s right)
We’ll release 2 other singles leading up to the Album release – “Miss McKenzie” (8/2) and “Dear, Charlie” (8/16). Stay Tuned for more info on those.
ALSO THIS MONTH – We’re extremely excited to announce that, along with our friend, British screenwriter SAM SCOTT and the amazing illustrator RUSSELL DAUTERMAN, we have put together the 1st issue of a RADICAL Ashcan Comic Book:
“Annie Automatic: Killer In Disguise”
This will be distributed directly to fans, in Limited Edition form, by our lovely street team at COMIC-CON San Diego 2011. Look for people around the convention in our signature Annie Tshirts who will have a fresh copy for you FOR FREE. (while supplies last)
These will be available exclusively through our webpage as well.
It’s an exciting time for us, and we cannot tell you enough how grateful we are to be able to do what we love,
and have fun creating new things – ALL of which is made possible by you, and your friends.
So please, continue to spread the word and show us your Love, and we’ll continue to do the same.
Keep your eyes and ears open, we’ll have some more AWESOME stuff to tell you about soon!
